I love the battle bridge on the secondary hull. She's just quietly hidden in there. tucked in snug as a bug

Not sure about the impulse engine, I just feel like its sticking out too far. But I do love the desing.

This has got to be the most artistic ship of Starfleet I've ever seen. :thumbsup: Truly worthy of the name Grandeur.

Really beautifyl Vek!

Man, I wish I had this kind of talent, I've got ideas in my head for starships, but can never knock them out correctly.

She's gorgeous as always, Vektor.

This is a nice view, especially. Put a starfield behind it, and it would look just ... WOW! :thumbsup:

Cheers,

I like the little fin thingies on the aft part of the connection between the warp nacelle pylons and the nacelles themselves. :thumbsup:

Thanks, Ptrope, but I think the TMP refit would still have to hold that title in my book. Although, I have been trying to incorporate certain characteristics of the TMP refit into the Grandeur, so I'll take your comment as an indication of success.

This is one of my favorite views also, but I'm afraid I'm going to hold off on any starfields or beauty shots until the model is finished.

Those are a detail I had planned to add almost from the earliest design sketches for this ship but I'm only now getting around to them. They actually do serve a purpose; I figure not everything pulled in by the bussard ramscoops is going to be useable for fuel, so after the good stuff gets separated and extracted, whatever's left gets vented out those grills and back into space.

Remember the ring of grills just behind the bussard domes on the TOS Enterprise? Or the semi-circular grills on either side of the head of the nacelles on the TMP refit? Or the ring of grills on the Enterprise-D? Just about every Fed ship design has had them in one place or another, usually right behind or right next to the bussard collectors. I just decided to put mine on the trailing edge of the support pylon adjacent to the nacelle where the exhaust wouldn't leave a messy residue over time.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

This is looking really amazing. It has such a genuine kinetic flow and full of tasty details. I love the little grills. There is so much about this design that mimics the styling of an old car (of course the Refit did as well) which I adore. Beautiful!

(I love your signature line. It expresses my own sentiments on the subject as well.)

"Success" is an understatement . I agree that, of the onscreen ships, the TMP refit is the best of them all, both stylistically and visually; the refit 1701 is definitely a clean design, both well-balanced and well-detailed (thanks to a very strong original design by Matt Jefferies, and tasteful and thoughtful improvements by others on its way to the big screen). I think the final determination will come when Grandeur is fully textured, lit and rendered in context. As noted above, there is a lot of 'automotive' style and grace to Grandeur, lines that arguably have little or nothing to do with its function as a starship, and everything to do with simply making it beautiful, even stylish; the form is 'right,' and the details add both to the style and to the appearance of functionality. It's a Duesenberg in a fleet of Chevrolets, a Lockheed Constellation in a fleet of DC-3s.

Along with your campaign to have Vanguard in a canon Star Trek prequel film, I think, should there be any decision to make a Trek film that follows TNG/DS9/VOY, Grandeur should find a place onscreen, as well; it's just that good :thumbsup:.

IMHO, this looks like a better next step in the Enterprise lineage than the Sovvy.

Kudos!
