Seeing as the saucer seems to be a thorn in everyone's sides, what do you all think of the following?
I really never had a problem with the saucer aside from that dimple thing in the first version you showed, but the tons of windows on the sides of the engineering hull need to be cut back a little. If there was a bit more space between the rows, they would look better.
Actually, the first thought that popped into my head after seeing that shot was "cruise liner"... which may just fit (not knowing the STO universe), since the ENT-D was something like that with the families onboard.

The sponsor's reps would probably just slap their foreheads and go, "Oh no, not again!" (similar to some potted petunias ).

Cheers,

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

Although I can't enter this contest I've got an idea from a few years back I could play with. I should dig it up and play with it just for the hell of it.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

here's where I'm at right now


I'm doing this in CAD right now so that's why it looks . . . interesting . . .
the cyan lines are 'hidden' . . . I haven't figured out why my linetypes aren't showing up

[edit] oh, and the saucer and secondary hull lines should be more rounded . . . had my curve resolution set too low

BUT THOSE NACELLES! WOWIE-WOW-WOW! That Coke-bottle shape is giving me wood. You need to develop them, maybe even as stand-alone items.
You seem to have a thing for nacelles.

And one more hat in the ring. This is one of the ideas I had that I fleshed out a bit to see how it flys. Keep in mind the nacelles are preliminary haven't gotten to the final I like yet. Oh and the silhouette is not exact as it was taken from an earlier drawing.

I for one like the nacelles you have in this sketch, and I love the rest of the design. Nice work.

Dac - I like the Galaxy style saucer personally. Though I will say that the version with the Dauntless style saucer looks pretty sweet too.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise

The finished version is gonna be somewhat more refined. What I've got so far is just a rough cobbled together mishmash to get the general idea down, and give the whole thing some bulk.

Did you really have to resort to such extreme insults?
