You have every right to your opinion of the guy's work, but you could have shown a lot more respect for the guy in your critique.

Ohh.. I have the power to make people do things! This could get dangerous.



Anyway, I do feel it probably could have been delivered with more tact, but I don't see anything here that would require moderator action.

calamity_si: were your sketches inspired by the White Star ship from Babylon 5? Looks very similar IMO..

..liked that design alot (I also liked the "final" design of the Aventine that was posted on www.trekmovie.com)
Huh, the official concept art looks like a bit of a mash up between a Dauntless and a Sovereign.

I just want to say that I never said the design was bad, or anything, I just like the other one better.

If I were to rise to that first comment u made I could see this conversation degenerating quite quickly so in the interest of keeping the peace, I'll just say a polite 'thank you' and leave it at that.
Yeah that was a little rude of me. No matter, you drew a cool ship. Just a little fat. Put it on a diet!

Well the passage did say they were experimental, although it didn't say if th actual tech was experimental, or the deployment of it on the Vesta Class or just even the Aventine.
Atleast it's not a Vista Class ship, since that would sound too much like a certain Microsoft Operating System

Starfleet R&D still hasn't released stable warp core drivers. And the holodecks are laced with ridiculous DRM.

Holodeck DRM. Oh man. I can't believe I never thought of that before.

"The Resolution of the Vista class ship is currently set to low, click the yellow bar to allow high resolution images."

"click"

"You need to upgrade to LCars Vista to view this image, contact your
local vendor or visit....."


Ok to be serious: I'm currently working on the armor plating. It's a painstaking process, when it's done I'm sure another preview will come to Trekmovie or so.

Who decides that anyway, where/when it will be first released?

Re: USS Aventine

I couldn't find any pictures of the Aventine or a Vesta class ship on trekmovie, but I didn't look very hard to be honest... I happened to come across this picture on the Memory Beta non-canon Wiki site of the Aventine and I thought it satisfied my thoughts of how it might look...
