Re: 22nd century star clipper...
You know, I was never a fan of the Daedulus class until I saw Madkoifish's take on it
. Damn, it is a gorgeous bit of modeling. I highly encourage browsing that thread for the close up images of the detailing he's done.
I have to give credit where due. He's done an awesome job on that. I really doubted that design could be made to look good, but he's done a good job of it. My only small quibble is that as is it fits right in with the TNG/ENT aesthetic, but it doesn't look like it would blend with TOS. It's not a criticism of his execution---which is flawless---but of his choice of approach. I think he's got the overall shapes and proportions just about perfect.
