This is looking terrific - I'm really hoping it won't lose its sleek purposefulness being freckled with portals and escape pods. This has to be the most beautiful Starfleet ship, bar none; I think you've really shown the 'authorized' designs a thing or two, Vektor
(no offense intended, Rick Sternbach
- there's nothing that says something has to be 'beautiful' to be a great design!).
