    Star Trek fans have been designing their own ST ships since TOS. What are your favorites? Judged by "coolness factor" and fitting into the ST universe.

    Vektor's Grandeur-class. Images of it are available over in the Fan Art forum.

    It is the refit Dreadnaught, slightly stretched secondary hull.

    I just want refit nacelle supports and a slightly wider saucer.

    Quite a bit of Forbin's kitbashes.

    And Franz Joseph's Destroyer, Scout and Dreadnought will always be part of my own personal canon.

    The Vesta-class ships are my favorite due to them having quantum slipstream drive.

    BolianAdmiral's Gemini-class (TOS)
    Vektor's Vanguard (pre TOS)
    My own Hercules-class (pre TOS)

    Someone in the Art forum did a TMP era design based on a pre-production illustration that looked like it belonged right alongside the TMP refit design and the Reliant

    There are also a few designs on Masao's Starfleet Museum website that are very cool. In particular his 22nd century Powhatan-class and his TOS era Predator-class destroyer.

    I like the Phobos, the Copernicus, and the Churchill. Merian class is also nice.

    Doesn't every ship have slipstream now?

    If they do, I never heard about it. My understanding was that there were only a few ships with the drive installed.

    Suppose you'd have a link for this one? Sounds interesting and I'm having a spot of trouble finding it on search.

    That take on Star Empire is something I would like to see Probert clean up.

    Yamato-class experimental battleship is fantastic IMO:

    It's not a fan design, but game design. I find most fan designs really bad.

    Also, I had a good image of that Star Empire somewhere, but I can't find it now. I really like it as well

    Thank you for that,... but I don't do odd-numbered warp systems, if they're supposed to be a part of Gene's Universe.;)
