I like this ship, be it for the contest or not...

I like it a LOT - but it doesn't say "Enterprise" to me.

^ I think that's an great ship for the 'Enterprise', but yes, there's many ships which are more 'Enterprise', than Century-class.

If there was a "Design the Next Voyager" contest, I think this ship would have a very good chance of winning. I love the design, but I definitely get a Voyager vibe from it.

Yes, indeed

Something I don't understand about the Century is that, it has 22 decks and the crew compliment is 1224, which is bigger than Galaxy-class' compliment (42 decks, crew 1014)

The Galaxy-class has tons of room. Assuming most of the crew are roommates and live in the Data/Worf style quarters, as we typically see, that leaves tons of room in the Galaxy-class. The assumption can be made, in conjunction with the TNG: TM's statement's about the Galaxy having room for future expansion, that the ship is not packed full.

The Century-class could very well be a more ridgid design than the Galaxy.

Re: Design the Next Enterprise



I've made a few changes to my top view of the design.

I'm basically trying to move away from the secondary hull being long ways from the saucer and instead running across.

The saucer actually connects in the centre of the secondary hull so the secondary hull rises halfway above and below the saucer.

The shuttle bay is central so it's actually level with the saucer.

Sublight engines are on the back of the secondary hull.

The nacelles are connected to the secondary hull centrally just slightly raised above the saucer but the nacelles are connected to the saucer by pylons.
These pylons also house the forward Torpedo launchers, two launchers per pylon. The aft launchers are located on each side of the shuttle bay.

Is my description adequate or is there any confusion?
