Re: 22nd century star clipper...

Here we can see some basic configurations and variants.

Numbers 1 and 2 are closest to MJ's concept sketches. For myself I'm just not crazy about these even with their altered proportions. To me Number 3 looks like a very early prototype we might have seen in early 22nd century.

Number 4 doesn't look bad because reducing the size of the forward hull seems to balance things out better visually---in my opinion, of course.

To me Numbers 6, 7 and 8 look best. 6 and 7 benefit from a smaller forward hull as I think it improves the overall look of the design. Number 8 was an accident as I was mixing and matching things. I just happened to see how it would look if a bit slimmer and it just clicked in a neat way that appeals to me. I think this would work with either a single nacelle or the conventional dual nacelle setup.
