Transwarp Starship Design

I was thinking of some kind of a Transwarp-capable vessel, which is kind of a parallel-universe Excelsior-like vessel. It's not quite as far from Star Trek as "Nu-Trek", but it's somewhere between Old-Trek, and Nu-Trek.

So far, I'm just in the conceptualizing stage. The basic idea I'm looking for is a design that's like the Sovereign-Class, with some Excelsior and a little bit of Nu-Enterprise mixed in.

Anybody have any additional ideas?

Transwarp-capable?

Soooo... equipped with a TNG-style warp drive, then?

Would it have more TNGish lines or more TMP-ish lines?

I'll see if I can sketch something up, but don't expect anything more than a rough side view.

Re: Transwarp Starship Design

Bloody Hell, how large would an Excelsior be in Nu Trek?!

Do you have a size in mind? I'm only being partly facetious here when I say if you're going nu trek, this ship would have to be as large as a Romulan Warbird...

If someone where to flesh out a Nu Trek Excelsior, I'd vote for MadMan to take a shot at it.

Hmm- missed that one... Doesn't look very inspired to me. Blah... Oh well, I don't have to like all his stuff.

But this obviously wasn't what you were looking for...

It's undeniably NuTrek, though.

The nacelles still look like sex toys!

Re: Transwarp Starship Design

Well, I think I'd predominantly prefer the TMP era lines, but I'd definitely want some TNG and the clean-cut Nu-Trek lines.

As for the size of the ship, I'm thinking of a size-range between 680 to 720 meters. The figures are based on the Ex-Astris Scientia article about the Excelsior size, based on the number of decks shown on the Enterprise-B and the fact that it would indicate a minimum size of 680 meters, and the size of the gash made by the energy ribbon covering three decks, yielding a projected length of at least 700 meters.

The other size range is around 740 to 790 meters, which are based largely on the Nu-Enterprise's size. 762 meters was the Nu-Enterprise's size, so I gave around 25 meters on either end (above and below).

So far, I'm thinking I'd like a circular saucer, with an upper shape similar to a mix between the Sovereign-Class and the Excelsior Class, and a lower shape similar to the Excelsior only. I would prefer the impulse engines to be located on the centerline behind the saucer. Either mounted on the saucer like the Excelsior, or roughly in the location of the saucer-shuttlebay on the Sovereign-Class.

As for the secondary-hull, I'm thinking of something more like the Sovereign-Class, especially aft of the saucer section. The pylons are pretty good as they are from the Sovereign-Class.

As for the connecting-dorsal (Neck), I'm thinking of some kind of mix of the Ambassador-Class and the Sovereign-Class, I don't want any grilles in the neck design.
