    Neat design! Reminds me of something, but I can't recall what.

    Very nice... reminds me a bit of some of the designs in Masao's Starfleet Museum.

    It kinda reminds me of the Romulan pre-warp ship from the ST Chronology. Still a cool design, though!

    Ah yes, that too. By no means is that bad - surely cylinders would be a very logical and practical shape in starship construction.

    It has a little of the stance of the TNG soliton wave rider/Mars defense craft from Best of Both Worlds

    Considering I only three episodes of Next Gen, I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Oh its an original design all right. Sojourner was talking about how it reminded him of something, and I was just throwing out a guess.

    Interesting. I'm guessing the leopard-like pattern is a product of a specular map? I had to go back and look at your second test video, it was there before, but not near as strong. Certainly not a common approach, compared to the usual rectangular panels. I do like that you dropped the two pods, they didn't seem to be helping the design any.

    Introducing the Behaim class explorer, named for Martin von Behaim, a German mariner, artist, cosmographer, astronomer, philosopher, geographer and explorer in service to the King of Portugal.

    Fine work wrapping up the Telgar. I particularly like your color choices.

    The Behaim is looking nice, too. I particularly enjoy the exhaust nozzles. They're big and clunkly as one might expect. Plus, the saucer looks like a logical outgrowth of the main section. It's shaping up to be a very plausible evolutionary mid-step design. :)

    More Behaim.
    Moved the pylons and nacelles down to make room for shuttlebay location. Got rid of the dumb deflector box and went with something more traditional. Brought the quad impulse engines in closer to streamline the vessel. A few window placements (and yes the saucer rim is one large deck).

    Ah, looking good. I really like your solution with the bays.

    Incidently, a little late for this I realize, but I just kind of leaned my head and looked at her sideways, and you know - she might look better flipped over.

    Trust me she doesn't look better flipped over.
