This is something closer to what I had in mind when I started what turned into the Gopher:

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

something quick and dirty I threw together in about 20 minutes.

174-class warp fighter


and, thanks to a helpful associate, I got hold of a sheet of Klingon parts.

True to TOS, the first appearance of those parts from me is a version of the popular "twin hulled" Romulan battlecruiser based of the D-7/K'tinga hull, which I have dubbed the Bloodwing class:

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

I really like the Puddle Jumper and Warp Fighter. I was tempted to call them 'cute' but that did not seem dignified.

I'm less enamored with the double-hulled Klingon ship. It just seems awkward to me. The Grishna D-8 is very cool - a big intimidating design that still manages to look graceful.

^ That double hulled Romulan ship is just an attempt at a predecessor to the D'deridax class.

Only it's not quite as organic looking. Still a neat idea.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Can't take credit for the idea, DC Comics did it years ago...

I replaced the Grishna image with one scaled properly.

Funny you should mention combat, because the Stemmonds in my fictional universe represents a rare failure as a combat vessel.

Long story short, Stemmonds was one of half a dozen ships from the Miranda class that was tapped for field trials of various hull rebuilds from the original (TOS) configuration. This program would eventually spawn the Avenger and Soyuz subclasses as a result.

Stemmonds was actually rebuilt BEFORE Avenger, and represents the first attempt with the "roll bar" weapons array. The oversize pod put too much strain on the structural integrity and inertial damper systems in combat, so it was redesigned into the smaller "Avenger" pod which also had the redesigned roll bar configuration.

The Stemmonds herself was retained in service and re-tasked with less demanding scouting and survey duties with half of the pod launchers reconfigured to launch sensor drones an buoys.
