Did some work on the secondary hull, deflector dish, and the neck.

Re: My new side project! USS Something Something

Since the design reminds me a bit of the Spruce Goose, how about the name Hughes or Hercules (the designation of Hughes' prototype was the Hughes H-4 Hercules.)?

Re: My new side project! USS Something Something

Wow this thing is really starting to mesh (pun not intended). I'm actually more reminded of a mix between an Akira and Decatur, myself. I am REALLY liking this design the more I see of it. It has the elegance of traditional Starfleet design and the look of strength that the Vengeance had without being boxy and overpowering.

Looks great now. I'd widen the pylons though. The nacelle attachments looks a bit fragile.

I looked at the spruce goose and I can see the resemblance, with the new secondary Hull. SO, The ship's class name will be called the Hughes Class.

Thank you, so I might as well tell you the back story I envisioned for her.



The Hughes Class came into service in 2262, Alternate Reality.

The Hughes Class Specs:
Length: 500m
Crew Compliment: 350
Maximum Warp: 9.3
Average Warp Speed: 6
Shuttle Compliment: 6
Weapons: 10 Phaser arrays, 4 bow facing photon torpedo launchers
Warp Engine: The one that the USS Vengeance uses.
Impulse Drive: 4 Aft Impulse engines


Without further ado, more PICTURES!!!

Re: My new side project! USS Something Something

I've never been a fan of the split neck design. Despite that, I love this ship. A lot.

USS Ephemera
USS Wayfinder
USS Hadji
USS Crusader

Here is a list of explorers to choose from.

I like the nacelles because they don't look like dogs's penises.

I'm assuming you're referring to the JJ's Enteprise's ample blue warp nacells?

On another note when did that thread die?

^ Ah, well I'll let the thread rest in peace then, I still have a pic of the Somberoprise I drew way back in 2009 though. Man what silly ship.

Really my only issue with it. Having the secondary hull 'cradled' in the neck is visually interesting and offers some great modularity for various mission profiles, but unless that secondary hull can function as a separate ship unto itself, I just don't see it being that functional. Add a little more heft to both 'necks', make it look like they're built to take some punishment and not kill everyone traveling in them and it would probably be fine.

An otherwise pretty fabulous design. And I say that as someone who doesn't much care for the reboot's style/design language for Starfleet.

Well then I will definitely take that as a compliment, thank you!
It's a good thing I read that, you won't see the changes in the first few images, because I rendered those images out before I read you're comment. I fixed the neck, because I was thinking the same thing.

SO we got a whopping 9 images here, I think that the modeling is done. If you think I should touch up any part of this ship I'm going to move on to texture and surface detailing; aka modeling lights, and windows.

(Man, I hate Photobucket. With. A. Passion.)
