Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Since i now can post images here, i thought it a good idea to share some of the scematics, i've done with Vance's toolkit. If anybody else wants to show schematics done with the toolkit, feel free to add it here.

So, here are some of my schematics:

Congress class heavy cruiser

This is supposed to be an intermediate design between the Horizon and Constitution classes. Republic might have been build to this configuration and ships of the Horizon class might have been refitted to this specification.
The general arragement is similar to the Horiozon/Daedalus, but the primary hull has developed into the familiar saucer shape.
The shortened B and C deck structure is directly inspired by EliyahuQeoni's Yorktown, the more blockier impulse engines follow a similar reasoning than on his design, but were in place on this design before he put them out on one of his revisions.




Zuikaku class heavy cruiser

Another intermediate design, this time between Horizon and my Congress classes. The engineering hull is the same as on Congress and the primary hull is an intermediate step between the sphere of Horizon and the saucer of later designs.




Destiny class survey cruiser.

A variant of the Zuikaku, the Destiny adds a second sensor dish facing aft and therefore moves the front facing main sensor down to make room in the forward main hull for the hangar bay. Shortening the interconnecting dorsal was necessary to compensate for changes in the warp-field caused by the lowered main sensor.




Argus class scout

A first attempt in creating a smaller design without a secondary hull similar to FJ's Saladin and Hermes based on the main hull of Zuikaku.




Sagittarius class destroyer

Another attempt to adapt the one hull, one engine design of Saladin and Hermes on a spherical main hull. The Bussard collector has been removed from the nacelle, which has been connected to the hull in a similar fashon to the Mann class, and is connected on the front side of the hull.

Great Designs they make for a good addition to the Pre-Tos ship era

Yes indeed, good looking additions to the lore of Trek. Although the Sagittarius took a moment to wrap around.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Very nice! I especially like the neck on the Congress and the tweaks to the Daedelus-type primary hulls.

Hey, Sean...

Check out Karim Nassar's take on the Daedalus. He came up with some interesting adaptations:

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Here are a few I've put together with Vance's toolkits, just for my enjoyment, I endeavored to make stuff look even. But I'm not as good as Vance...lol.

The Oracle Class Listening Post, a quick outpost thats cobbled together with premade structure and parts. Something that Starfleet Intel can assemble at a moments notice, a spy station of sorts.




And a the Argus Class Cruiser and Dreadnaught. I wanted to make a fast looking Cruiser with the shovel style saucer section. Kind of a quick strike craft.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Thanks for the positive reception.

@Kendric

Also nice designs. And regarding the names, there are only so much good sounding names, unless you start naming your ships for battlefields of the romulan war or famous politicians of the 22nd century.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Sean,

Here are some examples from Masao's Starfleet Museum you may find inspirational:

http://www.starfleet-museum.org/amarillo.htm

http://www.starfleet-museum.org/krechet.htm

This next couple I would love to see as a kind of speciality tug for moving pre-fabbed space stations from Starbase to remote locations; I would reverse the orientation of the whole ship so the bow is the stern and vica versa. The long, tubular section on the stern is the pre-fabbed space station module, which can be jettisoned at the destination, already manned and operational.

http://www.starfleet-museum.org/pioneer.htm

http://www.starfleet-museum.org/conqueror.htm

Here's a neat design, except for the third nacelle; maybe a secondary hull/pod could be attached there, with a deflector dish:

http://www.starfleet-museum.org/wasp.htm

And here's another great design, which has similarities to Vance's recent Armstrong class:

http://www.starfleet-museum.org/moskva.htm

And here are a couple of similar designs:

http://www.starfleet-museum.org/gagarin.htm

http://www.starfleet-museum.org/hyperion.htm

I'm glad someone made this thread..maybe we can get more people to post their Vance's toolkit inspired work.

Here's the first of mine...

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

I had once thought about making a post-TNG-era intergalactic explorer vessel based on a group of saucers, all attached around a central stardrive hull. Each saucer could be jettisoned, to serve either as a planetfall colony or as a core for a space station. I called the concept the GS Universe.

Depending on how these colony-saucers are expected to function, the saucer-mounted hangar of Vance's Masao-class (uprated/TMP) might add functionality to each of them.
