Re: If You Could Re-Imagine the Constitution-Class Refit...

ancient,
My problem with the balcony-on-the-rim idea is that the window arrangement doesn't look at all unified.
I'd have to agree.

As if each window group leads into several different rooms rather than a lounge. I mean, why make such a disorganized window arrangement if they're all leading to a big lounge?
Huh? They look to be more or less the same size to me...

The smaller size works ok, but the 1080 size works so much better.
To be honest, I think you might actually be right.

Anyway, as far as the refit goes, I'd make the nacelles round and have a swirling bussard dome on the front of them - ie, make them more TOS-like, and loose the art deco. That's about it.
I'm wondering why so many people would want to retain the cylindrical nacelle and spinning bussard-dome set-up? It made the warp engines look like big giant rocket-engines.

I agree that the grilles on the front do look too art-deco and in fact I stated that I would want a smooth nacelle front-cap, but I prefer the rectangular nacelles.
