OK ... I have an idea that I drew up in Illustrator with simple shapes. The first thing your gonna see is a TNG style ship ... but just look at it ... let it soak in ... LOL
My idea here really is to show a warp capable saucier section ... with a portion of the top of the saucier that can detach for multi configurable missions ... even defense. As far as the secondary hull ... I like the forward sweep of the nacelle supports (but that is just me).
OK ... again ... my ideas are just that ... ideas ...
what about a strip deflector? like a series of small defelctors in squares on the front, that could be arranged in any pattern, and align them along the second little hull there- the second layer in the top pic, to change things up. then we could put a rapid deployment suttlebay where the deflector usually goes.
The deflector works in a specific way of projecting a field out in front of the ship; if you notice the size of the deflector has gone down so instead of stip deflectors we could just have a relatively small one like the Nova class has. Also with shuttlebay, if it's on the front then the shuttles have to already be moving faster than the ship to leave and land with much more difficulty. On the first design picture I drew, I placed an enlarged shuttlebay at the back, but forgot to define it more so it might not be obvious.
I noticed it- but the akira according to background has a fly throuh bay to facilitate luanch. also, if the suttle is already moving at the ships velosity, It's added power would launch it to whatever speed the aded power would make it go. think of it as basically flying around in the ship. If it leaves, it stil has the inital velosity of the ship, so it's the same as if the ship was sitting still. The entire idea with the Akira having that was for fighters so if we have a fighter wing, it makes sense to incorparate it.
Roddenberry's rules of design state that engines must come in twos. The more engineeringly minded Trek fans seem to disregard the Galaxy 2 as a fantasy ship of Q's, backed up by the presence of the Olympus class which is identical to the outdated Daedalus class. It's not the number of nacelles that counts but the engine which powers them.
Whilst Smith is correct that the Galaxy-2 is not meant to exist, it is sort of valid as a design since Galaxy nacelles held two warp coils per nacelle instead of one. Thus a Galaxy nacelle can be counted as two if you really wanted to, but only at a stretch.
