Quad engine

A little something I tossed of last night using SketchBook Pro 6. Trying to be a bit "looser" and more "painterly" instead of being a draftsman. (If that makes any sense.)

Maybe the saucer and engineering sections look a bit pedestrian, but I wanted a platform to explore paired nacelles.

Are those through-deck shuttlebays I see?

If you're on the outer edge of the saucer, you have to wait until they're done launching Vipers for the next CAP before you and cross back over to the middle.

Re: Quad engine

Very impressive work.

Is the name on the hull a reference to the French town of "Issac" or is it "Isaac" with a typo?

Re: Quad engine

I just don't see the point to wielding 2 nacelles together like that, might as well make one big nacelle.

Oh, and, 69! dude!

ONE BIG NACELLE? Are you out of your Vulcan mind?!?

You GOTTA have the paired nacelles! Why? Well, BECAUSE! (For shits and giggles, at a minimum.)

(FWIW, I feel your pain. I, for example, just don't see the point in having a warp core intermix chamber right there inside the ship. All that dangerous energy, and we're going to bring it down inside the ship to mix it and knead it and whip it into a warp-powering lather?

Nah, I think there should be warp cores housed in each warp nacelle, right down through the centers of the warp coils. Stick some matter tanks in the front, some anti-matter taks in the rear, and go to town! But does anyone listen to ME? no.)

That is the best look for quad nacelles. I never dug turning a starship into an X-wing fighter.

Re: Quad engine

I certainly think this looks better than what they did with the Stargazer class's nacelles, the front of which are ugly IMO.

I guess the justification for putting the power cores in the middle of the ship is because it would be easier to slice through the nacelles, which are thinner and smaller compared to the engineering section.

Re: Quad engine

Not a criticism, but what's the reason for 4 nacelles? More speed, redundancy, longer range?
