Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Actually, I really like the new one. I much prefer the non-split phaser ring. I think that the advantage of "flowing" the little deflector rig into the cannon recess can be accomplished while still having the phaser ring cross the gap. I like the more "mechanical" feel of the new design better than the old one, with the smoother and more organic curves. Then again, that's just me... I like something to look like it makes sense, and the new design really does "make sense" as I look at it. The old one, while perhaps a bit more "artistic," feels less "real" to me than the new one does.

Hey, it's all a matter of personal style, we all know that. I'm just saying that the new one is much better from the viewpoint of my personal style. A small tweak to the deflector element and I'd say it was perfect.

But that's just me...
