I wonder how you would handle the Orion pirate ship...
I'd have to really study it. In my opinion you can't simply take a roughly drawn animation design and translate directly into the "real" world and expect it to look credible. You have to adapt and tweak it. With the TAS shuttlecraft I strived to retain the essential concept and general overall look while massaging the designs into something more believable in appearance and size.
That Orion ship is a mess. I've tried drawing schematics of it and gave up. I had trouble getting the views to match. Also, the ship looks OK from a few angles (the ones in the episode) but looks clunky from others.
