Re: Pre TOS star cruiser....

I like it... I particularly like the detailing you've done so far.

Just a quick thought that you should feel free to ignore... might it not create a stronger link to the star clipper lineage if you flipped the Independence, to have the cargo section on top and the nacelles below? As I recall there was a Jefferies concept that was more or less this way, and I think this would strengthen the lineage to the Hercules (via having nacelles below) but retain the connection to the Vanguard (by having two nacelles.)

Just a thought.
