Excelsior Class MSD

As this one is a very popular design, I decided to do two versions of this MSD for you all.

Last DS9 era version:



Movies era:


Larger versions can be found on my blog.

I still think the movie version looks far superior.

Re: Excelsior Class MSD

do you have some high-res versions that include legible text? I may want to base my (eventual) Excelsior Build on some of this.

Re: Excelsior Class MSD

Never mind. Clicked through your link and found them (reading, it's fundamental!). Do you mind if I extrapolate and use this as a basis for my eventual Excelsior Class Deck-By-Deck (first I have to finish my TMP deck-by-deck)?

I don't think the openings in the neck are photon tubes...I think it's a cargo bay...
Tubes are on the secondary hull.

Neither do I, but the Ent-B MSD says otherwise.

But don't we see a shuttle go in there....
I was though that the torpedo tube in that location was suspect to clear the lower saucer in maneuvering situations.

Re: Excelsior Class MSD

Your work is beyond AWSOME those have to be the best starship LCARS displays I have ever seen. I love the movie/tos version of the Excelsior Class. How much trouble would it be to the movie/tos treatment to the Miranda Class? I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Re: Excelsior Class MSD

Thanks for the speedy reply. I just thought that it would look great seeing a comparison between the old and the new since both the Excelsior and the Miranda were still in service well into the next generation. I can't wait to see what you come up with next.
