    Ooh, I think it's better that way. I'd get rid of the third nacelle, because I never liked the designs with three (including the refit 1701-D from the TNG finale.) Otherwise it's a good start.

    I agree with you about the third nacelle. The design looks much better without it.
    But seriously, the spike in the center makes it look awesome!

    I agree about having no third nacelle also. The spike is a great version of the super-phaser that we saw in the All Good Things D

    It is quite a brutal looking ship. I liked the third nacelle from above but seen from in front the impression is quite different.

    I wish the Vengence in the film has 3 naceles - to jibe with Frantz Josepth's designs better. And adding a weapon-or making the split saucer cut a weapon - makes the split saucer make much more sense...rather than just...pointless and inconvenient.

    I realize I'm responding to someone's thread necromancy, but if the OP is still looking on, I'd REALLY like to see this design with FOUR nacelles - with either a single pylon in the middle with a nacelle on either side of it, or with twin pylons rising straight up from the middle, each with a nacelle.

    The design is awesome, as is, too, though. :techman:

    In other words, a battleship, like the Ares or Yamato class.

    Forgive if I missed it - did this design ever get a name?
