This is what I had in mind for placement of New Orleans-Class "clusterf**k" torp launchers for the McKinley-Class.
McKinley-Class (NX-Class Refit)
I appreciate what you've done but I wasn't looking for the Danube-Class / Miranda-Class rollbar pod on the saucer section. I ~love
~ the nacelles. They look appropriate to the rest of the ship as a TOS/TMP-era upgrade.
I want these phaser cannon emplacements in exactly the same spots (the ones under the "shoulders", ~not~ the one under the saucer,) as this Damascus-Class gunship.
And maybe a docked module like this one for quick swap-out / replacement, ~not
~ a full-on secondary hull.
I wish I had more views of this freight/fuel-tanker variant to help you.
