Yeah, pretty sure that you're not supposed to put the spoiler in the thread title next to the word "SPOILER." :lol:

That name doesn't sound very starfleet like

Well- the design doesn't look very starfleet either, but they have licence, and it is what it is... Those pylons and nacelles certainly look like they match up the ship crashing into the harbour. Nothing spoilerish about this- the image trailer with this scene has been around forever now. All I did was draw over the main lines.

The author of that blog states that " the saucer section is very much like a merger of the Ambassador class and the Sovereign class from the prime universe."

?

Did the author not see that the saucer has a 'mostly empty' center?

I have mixed feelings about this design. I like the spirit of it but not the overall execution of the design. In the lower hull section it just looks too clunky.

Just in case the audience is too dumb to figure out the villains motive from his actions and dialogue alone, just write it into the name of his ship.

Kind of sounds like a name a ten year old might come up with for his fanfic.

Without knowing who's working on the film, I'm going to guess that this is an Eaves design. And since we have federation ships that look like pizza cutters and spoons and ladles, I guess a bottle opener isn't so far-fetched.

Or just maybe the fucking United States Navy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Vengeance

What a bunch of ten year old twats.

Or how about the French Royal Navy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Vengeance_(1758)

Or the British Royal Navy:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Vengeance_(1774)

the submarine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Vengeance_(S31)

the arcraft carrier: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Vengeance_(R71)

or this one http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Vengeance_(1899)

or this one:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Vengeance_(1824)

Still, it makes me wonder. USS Vengeance...what kind of vengeance is Section 31 out for?

Vengeance on the Federation Council for being a bunch of dumbasses? That makes more sense for the Prime Universe though.

Yeah, this ship really lacks any kind of subtlety. It's a Starfleet ship used by the villains, and it just so happens to be the only Starfleet ship in all Trek with a black hull as opposed to while/silver/gray that all others have had for the past 50 years almost.

Re: SPOILER - Other Starship Revealed
 
^Why would they paint a ship intended to be stealthy white? It's faceted shape implies it's able to hide from sensors so doesn't it make sense to visually conceal it as well?

...Wait. You're just teasing again, right?
