I can only imagine what Mr. Probert would have done with CAD at his disposal. I knew there was only so much that could be done On 2D. 3D is a great error check for intruding objects.
Mr. Probert makes some comments about working with computers on design in this thread: http://trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=34669

I know some have already talked about design already but I have say my biggest problem with the Excelsior and Enterprise Class starships was the ill placed Power unit in the Spine of the Secondary hull. It was far too vulnerable. (Then again it made for a great sequence)

You chose the best best ship.
I really only have that problem with the "Enterprise Class" (Constitution Refit). The Excelsior has a much beefier neck, allowing the VIC to fit much better, and safely. I am tossing around in my head the idea of doing Excelsior next... though it is in a tight fight with Miranda. First, I'm going to finish Enterprise.
