^ hotlinking from sites that you don't own or are not specifically designed to host images for you isn't allowed.

So I've changed it to a normal link.

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...

Yes, that's the preliminary sketch by the artist who's designing the Aventine for Pocket Books, to be used on the cover of a 2010 novel. I believe it was posted on Trekmovie at some point, and it's the only picture of the Aventine (or an approximation thereof) that's currently available to the public.

That was the same shot I saw on TrekMovie. At least it looks just like it.

It is indeed the same image. Only 2 images of the Aventine are online yet, the other one is showing a closeup of a couple of windows. I hope to have an update soon, but dont pin me down on it.

I for now have started a poll to figure out what kind of color scheme would be prefered, you can vote for it here

I did not realize you were the designer. Nice!

Re: USS Aventine

Just put in my vote, which seems no one else is very interested in doing that color verison.

Very nice design. I suspect a lot of gamers and fan fic writers will want to get their hands on her when she's done.

Re: USS Aventine

I like that it looks like the design of the latest ships, the Sovereign and Prometheus classes.

LightningStorm -- Sorry, about that, I'll remember that in the future.

Clawhammer -- I can't wait to see the finished ship, the sketch looked really nice and I think it fits perfectly. I'm in the middle of Lost Souls now so I had been looking around for what the Aventine looked like.

Re: USS Aventine

Glad to see that the results came in finally and that Mark is using both colors of the classes. Should be very interesting to see once its up. Just patiently waiting for it.

Seconded.. I find the thought of a Slipstream ship as historical and exciting as the idea of the NX 01.

And what ive seen of it so far I REALLY like.

Re: USS Aventine

I'm looking forward to seeing the final version myself.

For some reason when I was reading the books, in spite of everything, I kept picturing something like the Defiant except bigger and with longer, underslung pods. Not sure why.

Re: USS Aventine

I had always imagined she'd look more like the Dauntless than she does.

Not like that's a bad thing, of course. I get a happy Dauntless/Enterprise-E/Voyager hybrid vibe from it.

You are aware Dauntless was in no shape of form a Starfleet vessel, yes it had a few design similarities (which are either coincidental or part of that Alien dudes plan to screw with Voyager) to a Starfleet starship but it was created by some random alien species from the Delta Quadrant.

And I must admit, that sketch does have a few similarities to Dauntless which along with armoured hull (yes I know Defiant has ablative hull armour, but it's not that different from the normal hull) is worrying for me.
