Re: Your Favorite Federation Ships ("Ent" To "TNG Relaunch")

If I had to say a top 10 (in no particular order)

NX Class (I thought the layout made more sense in Pre-TOS than the Akira)
Constitution Class (both pre and post refit, I have a new appreciation for the design)
JJ's Constitution Class (A marvelous ship, if you put aside Star Trek and just look)
The Workbee (I want one in my driveway)
Poseidon Class (from Legacy, it's closer to what the NX should have been)
Minuteman Class (can you tell I like ENT era ships?)
Excelsior Refit (Well, the refit's body, pre-refit saucer)
Galaxy Class
Soveriegn Class (she feels more in kin with the Constitution than most TNG ships)
Daedulus Class (Aethernaut's design)

Ok... too hard to pick 10, lets make it 15
Ascendence Class (JJExcelsior)
Perception Class (one of the few TNG ships I like)
Whatever class the Kelvin is.
Delta Flyer
The Argo

Re: Your Favorite Federation Ships ("Ent" To "TNG Relaunch")

Canon:

-Constitution
-Constitution-Refit
-Miranda
-Excelsior
-Ambassador (Sternbach)
-Galaxy
-Nebula
-Akira
-Defiant
-Intrepid
-Nova
-Delta Flyer

Non-Canon:

-Constitution (Deg3d)
-Constitution (Vektor)
-Sexed-Up Vincennes-Class (Icy_Penguino)
-Sultana (Forbin)
-Victory-Class (DJCurtis)
-Ambassador (Probert)
-Hayden (Borgman)
-Spirit (Clawhammer)
-Legacy (GKDesigns)
-Valiant (DJCurtis)
-Val'walo (Forbin)
-Gryphon-Class Runabout (GKDesigns)

Out of my own designs:

-Anduril
-Anhur

Overall, I like stuff that's nice and clean, and I have a big soft spot for the TMP, Lost Era/Ambassador (Which doesn't seem to get a ton of fan attention) and Late VOY design asthetics.

I could do without designs that are supposedly more advanced, but go chunkier and add mile-deep trenches and circuit pattern etchings while making the aztek pattern uber-contrasty (those who know me know that I refer to this as "campbell's chunky hull plating")

Excelsior post-refit saucer with pre-refit secondary hull. I think the post-refit secondary hull fairings detract from the elegant curves. But the pre-refit impulse engines were so tiny they surely couldn't do better than 1/8 impulse.

Re: Your Favorite Federation Ships ("Ent" To "TNG Relaunch")

Since the OP asked for images and not just class names, I'll point to the second image on this entry on John Eaves' blog:

http://johneaves.wordpress.com/2009/...e-early-nx-01/

I find this particular NX concept design more aesthetically appealing than Andrew Probert's refit Constitution and Ryan Church's "composite" Constitution for the new film.

I also like Eaves' "Pufferfish", the second image on this entry on his blog:

http://johneaves.wordpress.com/2009/...-insurrection/

With the addition of a few windows, I think it would make an awesome replacement for the Oberth class.

Re: Your Favorite Federation Ships ("Ent" To "TNG Relaunch")

For the sake of simplicity I'll only concentrate on my favorite ship design: The classic NCC-1701. Here are my favorite shots of that beauty.

Watch out! Some serious starship porn to follow.

Re: Your Favorite Federation Ships ("Ent" To "TNG Relaunch")

The refit used to be my favorite ship, but the JJPrise has eclipsed her entirely. The new 'Big E' looks fantastic and dynamic in motion, capturing the sensibility of the original while still looking fresh and modern.

After the JJPrise and the refit, I think the Defiant rounds out the top three. I really dug the stark and functional look of the exterior. Too bad the interior was more of the same TNG-style, but what can you do?

Something like this?



No clue where I got it from, it's been sitting around a thumbdrive for a while now.
