    Great work!

    If I had to choose I would go for the saucer of the middle design with the hull of the bottom design.

    That mobile starbase saucer pretty much is the planet of the titans saucer as I envision it.

    I love the flatness, yet the layered look. It is your creation, but try rounding the edges off just a bit.

    I wholeheartedly agree. The 1st one looks sleeker and faster, and more refined in comparison the others.

    I think that the middle niche/trench/whatever in the saucer would look better if it angle outwards liked the top one.

    Thanks!

    I'm thinking that, since the top one also seems to make this ship look bigger, I could use the bottom one for a "sister ship" that is of the same family, but considerably smaller.

    This is NOT what I have in mind for my mobile star base... it came about as an accident while I was a'doodlin' on the Wacom... and I dig it. Gonna have to make it into something.

    If you're re-imagining or otherwise envisioning something never-before-seen in the post-TNG-era primeverse then perhaps it is worth considering what such a mega-saucer vessel would look like without distinct nacelles (or with the nacelles built-into the saucer, like tail fins).

    It's also worth considering what this mega-saucer's capabilities would be like as its own, autonomous starship. The saucer seems layered; does this suggest the layers can separate to form lesser saucer-ettes?

    That would be nice. It might be nice to have a warp ringship fly in front and behind it, so the three-ship design becomes one big nacelle.

    A few updates, mostly just refinements & clean-ups, really.

    This is my final update.

    (OK, at least for now.)

    I think she looks good in black, yes? No?

    I obviously went for a lot of Probert-esque lighting cues from ST:TMP. They REALLY make her what she is.

    She looks great.

    But I can't help but notice that she appears to only have one dorsal phaser array. I'm thinking: "isn't that a very light armament for what is supposed to be a flagship, even if we're only talking about the dorsal weaponry?"

    Really beautiful work, erifah. With the black background she almost looks photorealistic.

    The other arrays won't be installed until Tuesday.
