And now, something "weird" - USS Archon, NCC-0189
 
Ok, so over here, and on the Sci-fi meshes board, there have been all kinds of Daedalus class ships showing up recently, and I saw one image (I can't find it again) showing a Daedalus with Kelvinized parts. So, I thought I would build something similiar.

I warned you, this is weird. :)

I named it the Archon; Apparently it was supposed to have been a Daedalus class, originally. Maybe this is what it looked like. :)

This is still very preliminary; I haven't even smoothed out the shapes yet.

What do you guys think?

Looks very interesting and cool to me :) :drool: :techman:

Do the pylons move? In the first two shots, it looks like they're angling up, but in the low shot, they look like a downward slope.

I like it. Retro yet sleek. :)

It would make a cool prime universe ship too without too many modifications... just lose 2 of the nacelles and maybe make the fantail a little less streamlined.

Thanks, guys. :)

Ziz, I think it's an optical illusion. The pylons are 100% horizontal, but they are swept back at an angle. I think that makes it look like the pylons are at an angle. I'll render another image that shows this off better.

You may want to make the front of the pylon straight, and make just the back angled. that *should* eliminate the optical illusion :)

it looks like an accident involving the prometheus and the heart of gold.
remember kids, don't use multi-vector assault mode and the infinite improbability drive at the same time.

I think it would look great with just two nacelles.

I, for one, love the four nacelles thing. It'd be even cooler if each pair had some sort of collective housing.

What do you mean?

Like a case that makes the two nacelles look like one that's shaped roughly like 1701-A's.

wouldn't that defeat the purpose of having 4 nacelles?

MadMan1701A, I think you're on to something. :techman:

IMHO for what its worth I would use the original Kelvin secondary hull since the Archon was older then Kelvin.
Its also got a Wasp class kind of look to it.
