Not a criticism, but what's the reason for 4 nacelles? More speed, redundancy, longer range?
I don't have a clue. I was in a creative mood, and I just drew what I drew.

Re: Quad engine

It's an interesting take on the quad nacelle concept.

Great design! Reminds me of the old Coral Sea class Battlecruiser:

Sure... reminds me a lot of that, too! except that erifah's design displays some clever creativity, while this one looks like the work of a talentless hack.

Sorry, but it's true...

Very true. This particular one doesn't seem to take into account the fact that the rear nacelle support pairs take out a huge chunk of the landing bay.

Yeah, the schematic is shit, but it did strike me as a design lineage commonality.

Re: Quad engine

I remember the Coral Sea. There was a TOS dreadnaught with similar treatment too. They mis-drew the Reliant, with each layer of saucer detail pulled back as an aft saucer section. Interesting concept though.
