My first thought? That a single "nacelle" version of this would look a lot like the Protector from Galaxy Quest. Seriously nice work though!
lol thanks mate

Neat idea but I don't think you're quite there yet. The side view suffers a lot for not having the long lines of the nacelles to balance out the overall shape of the ship.
no it is where I wanted it. I had thought of designing "tails' to the nacelles, but tossed that right away, as it is not what I wanted to achieve. As for the concept of balance, well there you are dancing dangerously close to opinion, not fact. In any structure balance can be found, it may not appeal to the observer's sense of balance, but it is still balanced nevertheless. Great crit though

Daaaaamn. That is absolutely breathtaking. Your attention to detail is amazing. And those are the coolest nacelles ever!
Thanks mate!

I agree it alters the symmetry from the norm. But... What if the rings were larger, to create a new symmetry?

It'd pretty strongly resembled the symmetry of some science fiction vtol crafts.

It gives me a gorgeous mental image of this thing descending through an exotic atmosphere, to some super sexy looking coast on a clear green sea... With lots of scantily clad star trek vixens relaxing on the beach and oiling each other up while waiting for the USS Halot to arrive with the ice and romulan ales.
That's a great visual! I would not make the nacelles larger as their very diameter would begin to throw off the entire design...I tossed a few diameters and found this to be satisfactory.

This.

But if that is figured out, she'll be a beauty.
See above comment

Sweet!

As a kid the first time I saw a very low-res screenshot of the DS9 pilot battle I thought the aft shot of that Nebula was some ship with a single round nacelle on a pillar. This ship's side view kinda reminded me of that.
That is an awesome Idea! I almost opted something like that, before I settled on the Halo's current shape... I may have to explore that one a bit more!
Thanks!
It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who finds the idea of a single disc-shaped nacelle (instead of two rows of coils being in separate nacelles) somewhat intriguing, although probably not easy to do right.

What if you were to double up on the nacelles, with one set sweeping up and back with the other set swept down and forward? Might balance it out a little more.
no...lol...no The balance is to its own. As I always state, generally poor orthos, can create amazingly beautiful actuals and perspectives.
