Re: Star Fleet X-Technology Heavy Cruiser
There's one minor detail that might set this off even more: use the TOS block-style lettering for the hull markings. I have to admit the stylized, disco era typeface used from TMP forward never looked right to me.
I like the red stripes on the topside of the saucer. I think more beauty striping should be applied to other surfaces of the ship, including the outboard nacelle pylons and the saucer's underbelly.
