    That bites. I feel for you. I'm using "lite" internet at home & cityville on facebook hates anything except high-speed. Loads to 73% and stops.

    I got told I wouldn't be working until Saturday at the end of this week (and, just as I thought my managers would,) they call me at the last possible second (as I'm out grabbing a burger and fries & enjoying Vancouver's brilliant summer days,) and leave me a message asking me to work at 8 am the next day. Well, thankfully its a morning shift and its cheap night ($6.00 for Adults, Kids, etc.) at Granville Six Theater, too. :) (Going to go see "Bad Teacher".) So, I don't have to worry about spending nine bucks on an unlimited 3-Zone transit day-pass just for the movie alone. I'm making ~some~ of that money back.

    I don't mean to be a jerk, but has there been any progress on the McKinley-Class (TMP-Era) NX-Class refit?

    This is what I had in mind for placement of New Orleans-Class "clusterf**k" torp launchers for the McKinley-Class.

    I appreciate what you've done but I wasn't looking for the Danube-Class / Miranda-Class rollbar pod on the saucer section. I ~love~ the nacelles. They look appropriate to the rest of the ship as a TOS/TMP-era upgrade.

    I want these phaser cannon emplacements in exactly the same spots (the ones under the "shoulders", ~not~ the one under the saucer,) as this Damascus-Class gunship.

    And maybe a docked module like this one for quick swap-out / replacement, ~not~ a full-on secondary hull.

    I wish I had more views of this freight/fuel-tanker variant to help you.

    Kaiser,

    If you want the McKinley-Class to keep 1 or 2 (multi-purpose) secondary hulls, why not dock them to the underside with side-by-side docking collars like this one?

    Yep, this guy is pretty good at what he does. He just needs to keep his designs more streamlined without (excess) nacelles / weaponry / AWACS modules.

    One more thing to all kitbashers, not just Kaiser: we need warp-capable freighters with nacelles and torpedo launchers, one set of Apollo-Class 'delta pods' on the ship's back, one or two Miranda-Class phaser cannon(s) embedded in the secondary hulls or fronts of the saucer sections like some of Sean Tourangeau's "mirror/terran-empire" designs.

    (I'm really tired of the older Merchantman-Class & Anteres-Class freighter designs that look ~so~ amazingly easy to approach, board and/or destroy from a distance.)

    i'd love to see someone come-up with a pic of the S.S. Belle Reve from the Shatnerverse, a ship disguised to look like a freighter, attached to Starfleet Black Op's under Captain James T Kirk in the Shatnerverse.

    I love the Walmart ship but I need to see a front view of that one, too. I would hike the lowest part of the ship right up against the belly of the "saucer" section. Is there 1 or 2 (side-by-side) cargo containers? I'd love to see the deflector, or is it like the Miranda-Class with multiple smaller systems that add up to the same as a deflector dish?
