I really like it. It makes way more sense to have the engineering hull run straight through the main hull. The deflector has a perfect line of sight. A disconnection is still possible and you don't need an auxiliary nav-deflector.

Plus IMHO four engines looks far more balanced

Only thing I'd change is make the dish copper.

Re: And now, something "weird" - USS Archon, NCC-0189

Thanks for the comments, guys.

I'm actually considering changing the registry to 1189, instead of 0189. It's still going to be the Archon, though.

I hadn't seen those threads about the Apex class, or I didn't remember them. Neat stuff.

The Castellan - The main part of the dish is a coppery/gold color... It just doesn't stand out as much with the blue glowing parts in there.

Maybe updates today, if work isn't too busy.

Re: And now, something "weird" - USS Archon, NCC-0189

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted anything. I hope everyone had a good Christmas/Holiday, and hopefully everyone got to take a break.

I think I have finished this one as far as it will go. It's really a background ship, so I'm not going to go too crazy with it.

Here goes...













What do you guys think? I think I nailed the "Something Weird" part.

I love it except for I'm not sure about the dark gray windowed areas. How would it look if that part of the hull was regular color, or maybe just a little bit darker than the rest? Or is that not weird enough?

Well, the problem with a big sphere like that, is that it looks really boring it its all the same color. I think it might be too dark, but It's the same color texture that I used for all my other dark areas, so that's why I kept it. It's just to break up the space.

Thanks for the other comments, guys. I'll try to have some wallpaper or something up soon.

Next project... the Klingon ship from the new movie!
