I love this even more... you're on a roll, Klaus!

Re: TOS Clipper ship -- Axeman version!

Ooh! I like it! About the only thing I'd do to improve it would be to change up the nacelles a bit so that they're not a TOS copy, if you're not already planning to do that.

The ring around the planet looks like an effect in The Matrix. It's all virtual!

It must be -- the ring isn't casting a shadow on the planet nor is a shadow cast on it.

This is great, but I think if it were to really "take off" as a TOS design, it might benefit from using just one dish/pod, and then having the dish/pod and the nacelles offset from each other by intervals of 120º, like forming a triangular arrangement.

Make those pods into mini saucers. Maybe lose on of the deflector dishes. Make the front end a sphere - a la 2001 (the Discovery) and you've got my vote.
