I borrowed the scan back from www.shipschematics.net; since I'm the original artist I hope they don't have a problem with that.
Are you open to minor suggestions? I've mentioned this in other threads and your ship looks like the perfect candidate for it.

I always thought it would be cool to have a rear firing photon torpedo bay right at the same level on the neck as the forward firing bays. In other words, just extend the current bay to the rear. One of the advantages is that one crew could man both forward and rear firing bays (as opposed to having a completely separate crew on another part of the ship.) I also envision the side docking hatches could easily be used to "reload" torpedos.

Just thought I'd mention it, it looks like you could create one with very little effort.

In any event, I'm anxiously awaiting the final version!
I'd also reccomend making the engine pylons a little longer to give the nacelles 100% clearance from the primary hull. But it's a really cool design, looks like a wonderful marriage between the Connie and the Ambassador.

Thanks for the kind words and suggestions, guys. This one is a fossil, though; I'm going to texture and light and release it as is.

And a beautiful fossil it is. Would have loved to see it on screen. Please let us know when it's released, my desktop will be waiting.

Sure, once I release it.

Various download sites have rules regarding the meshes they host. My own rule, however, is that any mesh that I put out on the Internet is public domain - though I really appreciate an acknowledgment on the images created, as a courtesy.

Cute. I like it. TNG-era, a re-launch of the TMP-era vessels parked & left deactivated during the Dominion War at Utopia Planetia & the Starship Museum.

Re: Neophyte CG Trek Ship Design

Actually, back in the day I had a little backstory worked out for it - it was a 23rd century vessel built incorporating technology found in a 24th century Starfleet ship from an alternate universe blown back through time during the battle of Wolf 357...

...Yeah, I went in for that kind of stuff in the 90s.

I also built a portion of a full-scale bridge set that was supposed to belong to this thing. Never finished the graphics, but if my life hadn't taken a sudden left turn I might have made an early fan film.

I don't have any really good pictures of it close to hand, but here's what I do have - the two mysterious figures are friends who I'm not in touch with and therefore don't have permission to feature on the Internet - it did get a little closer to completion than this.

Re: Neophyte CG Trek Ship Design

Hmmmmm.....intriguing. I could go for something like that at "S.T.: New Worlds". Have you written-down any of your concept in Microsoft Works / Word? I'd love to see you submit it, (& with your permission I'd edit/co-author,) to include plausible bits of future-history between Wolf 359 & The Dominion War.

The 24rd century ship is caught by a discharge from the wildly unpredictable Rashanar energy fields (from the "A Time To..." pro-lit series,) similar to the volcanic whirls in the Badlands (caused by exploded Romulan singularity engine cores during battles with the U.S.S. Excelsior, U.S.S. Enterprise-A & their sister ships.)

In a manner very similar to the Soyuz-Class U.S.S. Bozeman in TNG's "Cause & Effect", the "U.S.S. ---------------" becomes ensnared, sucked-in, bashed about like a cheap rubber toy raft on white water rapids & suddenly expelled about 47 years in Starfleet's "TMP-era / Lost Years-era" past.

That's next door to Wolf 359 isn't it?

Very nice! I imagine this would be how Starfleet would have upgraded the Constitution for the 24th century!

Do not ask me astronomy or Trek continuity trivia. I will cry (apologies to Joss Whedon).

And then I will smash (apologies to Hulk).

Re: Neophyte CG Trek Ship Design

In my opinion, this design is nothing more than a fannish kitbash of the Connie, the Connie refit, and the Ambassador.

Certainly nothing meriting the praise being heaped upon it in this thread.

As Thumper once said, if you can't say nothing nice, don't say nothing at all. In completely unrelated news, I apologize for having said nothing in your Photoshopped word balloon thread.
