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

This ship is really gorgeous. This design looks like it harkens back to the days of exploration instead of war. Me likes. Furthermore, the more I look at this design, which is a lot because I have it as my desktop image, the more I am reminded of the Constitution class and Constitution Refit. The quantum torpedo launcher in front of the main sensor on the underside of the primary hull makes me think of the TOS Connie and the shape of the secondary hull just makes me think of the Connie Refit. I'm wondering whether this ship would be built in the San Francisco Shipyard, Utopia Planitia, or some other shipyard. Anything that you can tell us, Vector?

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

Well, the subject of where the Grandeur was built is probably best left to Captain Roop and the gang, especially given its unique status as belonging to the Interstellar Federation Taskforce rather than Starfleet.

As for design influences, I'll confess that I have had the Constitution class refit very much in mind all through the development of this project. In fact, in an alternate sense, I think this design could plausably be considered a 24th century direct adaptation of the Constitution class.

By the way, I've been doing a lot of work on this model over the last couple of weeks, mostly refinement of the existing shapes to fix mesh errors, smooth some of the curves a bit further, increase the mesh density in a few places that needed it, and so forth. I've got a few more things I want to finish before I show any more WIPs but there should be more to look at some next week.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Another thing that I want to mention is that I like how the nacelles do not look at all like the ones in the Sovereign class.

not bad at all! Looks like the Sovereign had sex with the Ent-A, and the Galaxy-class got to fool around a little near the nacelles

I don't see much Constitution inspiration, though

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

Might be a bit late, but option 1 for the deflector, just move it up a little, put the registry in front of it, and put the ship's name above the deflector so it shows a little bigger.

Good work!

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

Vektor, I must ask one more question regarding the four forward torp launchers: are they rapid-fire or burst-fire?
