Quite an interesting and original design. Nice work.

Hey Guys, It's been awhile. No, this ain't dead not by a LONG SHOT.

Anyhoo, I just did a redesign and re-model of the nacelles. I wanted to bring them closer to the "TMP" era refit then what I had earlier, so without further ado...

Here they are.






What do you think?

Welcome back!
Surelly she is much more interesting than the Vengeance.
I just think you can improve the boxy impulse engines a bit. It looks to much big and boxed when compared to other pieces of the ship. Just my two cents.

Oooohhh yeah! So glad this is still going on. It continues to look amazing. I love how you seem to have amalgamated various Refit Connie, Oberth, Enterprise-B, Akira and NuTrek design sensibilities into one design without making it look like a jumbled mess. Reminds me of some of the beefier designs that came out of Starstation Aurora and Mastercom Data Center back in the day. Well done!

Thank you Starship, that is literally one of the best comments a person can give to an artist like me, it means I'm at the level of those at ILM. Which I feel I'm not. (I'm not, yet) But Thank you nonetheless.

The main purpose of the saucer impulse engines is double as structural support, and propulsion.

Re: CJ1701's Current Project: U.S.S Pike

Oh, I guess it's reminiscent to me of ships like the Starstalker and the Adamant, which were probably a little after MDC's time (my memory is fuzzy on their pedigree), but still had that feel of believable, large high-powered ships that didn't look like a fanboi's wet dream.

I really like how she looks, she reminds me a lot of a much beefier brawnier Grissom in general structure, though she's distinct from her in every component detail.

I love so much about this ship. From the nacelles, to how it connects to engineering section, the way it connects to the saucer section. I can't wait till you are done with her.
