As for the ship design, I rally don't know how I could rework that drawing. I got it from that site that gaz poted, and modified it a little, and added separated veiws.
though I agree it does seem squashed. but that's the general idea of teh desgn I have right now.
I never liked kitbashed designs because of the frequent problems of a)scaling and b)reason for why it would be done. Although it is entirely good practice to find what works and combine/improve them for a later design, but the later design would look new, not kitbashed.
I have a query - what do the two shots on the bottom Left represent - some kind of seperation, if so where do the 2nd set of nacelles come from?
I m not sure about the upper (sensor?) pod in regards to how it connects, would be interesting to see it with a single central support like a nebula?
As for my 3rd design - Jeff - I agree with you. Theres something about it that doesnt just sit right. Its both boxy and circular, to many diff shapes. But then I was limited with my cut and stick shapes LOL - if theres a low tech way to do something - I ll manage it LOL.
Oh btw I ve just realised - I hope you peeps dont mind me commenting after all I m not officially part of the project LOL.
Jeff ... please remember to give credit to Kris at email@example.com ... that his ship ... I don't know him but we could ask him to re-work his ship for S47 ... Lin, others ... what do ya'll think?
I agree with Lin about the upper sensor pod ... with it connect to the nacelles the saucer separation would be almost impossible. With the Pod connected differently ... I would say that then the separation would be possible.
the nacceles connect at two different points, so either section could retain the nacceles when the ship separated, depending on the choice ofthe CO. that way, if there was an imminent warp core breach on one section, the nacceles wouldn't be lost (and they're the hardest part of a ship to make from what I hear) and could be used on the undamaged section. that way, you could escape at warp rather then at impulse and trying to ride the shockwave (and crash into a planet)
i was just checking out the designs and one thing struck me over all the rest. now, let me say first that i really like the design alot, but i really feel the ship should have more of a edgyness to it. the design right now is very bubbly and TNG. the newer ships all have this same edgy, angular design elements to them.
I agree ... more angular surfaces and sharper lines would add a bit of character and coolness to the design. That's my little opinion. I keep thinking of one of the new Ford Mustangs ... lol, perhaps because I'm obsessed with them at the moment ... but still ...
I have a 2nd recomendation, this was made by my late Uncle who died of cancer last year,
He was in to star trek, so he desined his own ship, the only thing was he never did the specs of it so it is possible tob put anything you wish on it. Also he didnt get round to naming it, so there for you have the oppertunity of naming her.
