Thanks, I edited my last post when I looked it up myself.

As I was saying, I guess she needs a name first...perhaps Mr.Sternbach could come up with a suggestion? Or perhaps it should really be called the Sternbach Class?

Works for me...

It looks like it should be rather larger than Voyager to me. It's more powerful looking.

Ok here's a little update: I've finally sorted out the shield grid lines on the primary hull. And she has a name!

Can I make a little suggestion on the name? Sternbach works out to Starbrook or Starstream, so you might consider using one of those.

Starstream gets my vote! AND it can be mistaken for everyone's favourite Decepticon!

In Japanese, it sort kinda works out to the word for Milky Way or galaxy. I don't have a good romanji spelling, but Google Translate has some variations in Japanese characters.

I know we have a Galaxy class, but this would be different.

Re: Making the Intepid Class Prototype (Sternbach)

I really like this ship. I can see when it might not have been "sleek" enough for TV, but it's a nice background design.

I wish I had *any* skill for art or design...when I first saw the Intrepid concept, long ago, it gave me an idea fro a similar ship, but built using Excellsior components.

Lower the saucer (by getting rid of the neck - well, shortening it significantly) and flip the nacelle arm thingy upside down. Always wondered how that would look. (Maybe add some elements from the Centaur design from DS9...)

Just an idea I had.

ETA: I guess something similar-ish exists...but mine wouldn't be *so* different. And really, I'm not sure what would be all that different about a ship based on my idea would be from a regular Excellsior Class...but the Intrepid prototype made me think of it...

Just as long as no translation works out to "Melody Pond", we're all good.

I'm afraid there's not much of an update to show here. I've scaled the ship in accordance with the USS Voyager. Added some escape pods and ventral phaser array.

Thanks! Your idea sounds like a concept I did for a ship called the USS Colarado.

Nice! That's a pretty B.A. Excelsior variant. Most tweaks to this particular ship strike me as weak, but for some reason this one is pretty cool.
