Warped9, I really
like this ship. In some ways, I like it better than NCC-1701. It's so much more practical-looking! Will you add any docking hatches?
Another thing I like is the big, round exhaust nozzles for the impulse engines. And -- like the original Enterprise
-- they're at the ship's center-of-mass if you consider the warp engines more dense than the inhabited hulls. It's also very easy to consider this design modifiable for a tug mission ala Franz Joseph.
I really just love this ship!
