Starfleet Cloaking Vessel c.2269
 
This ship was inspired by the idea that Starfleet developed their own cloaked vessel based on the Klingon D-7 design after stealing the cloaking device from the Romulans. There are only 3 of these ships in Starfleet service. The first of these vessels was nicknamed Blackbird. One issue that starfleet has been having with these vessels involve the mattar antimatter engines held within the outboard warp nacelles. The problematic nature surrounding this is the warp signiture is difficult to mask while cloaked at warp speeds. As a direct result, speed is limited to a sleepy warp factor 2.9.

And it fits nicely by having similar design elements with a ship I made in 2010. The big tug!

I thought it was your tug concept being 'repurposed' at first.

I love the front. Looks like the secondary hull on Decker from Fasa made into a primary/main-hull.

I'm glad you were able to see the differences in the end. I knew they would look a lot a like. As for the build, the new one is more convoluted, yet was easier (since I have more GSU experience).

Thanks- it can use some fleshing out. Gee- I haven't even come up with a class name yet! Or registry number. I'm thinking something "clever" like NX-71...

I wasn't sure what ship you are refering to. Is it the TNG era stretched out one?

Yeesh- it's been a while. But I've been working on it today. Mirrored it, and will get a pic here soon. I'm pleased with it.

Looks good :)

Looks like somewhat of a design ancestor of the post-TNG/DS9 era USS Vesta that was made for the cover of Star Trek: Typhon Pact - Zero Sum Game. Very nice!

Lol, what?

And that's the Aventine. Vesta is the class.

Actually, it think it's reminding me more of the USS Spirit.

Nice Patrickivan. I like how the configuration is similar to a Klingon D7. Could also look good as an "aggressor" squadron training ship.

I would like to say, I love this ship more as the half version. With everything skewed to one side, It's very interesting. As the complete ship, not as interesting.
