    I've been tinkering again.

    Inspired by a couple of designs I've seen around and from the description in Diane Duane's "My Enemy, My Ally" among others, I did this up last night.

    The Defender class starship is alternately referred to as a "destroyer" or a "battleship". Based on it's description, I think the latter is more appropriate.

    liking that one... double deflector dish... interesting design... personally i would have gone for more an oval instead of the 2 circular dishes...

    i like it though, very much a beast of a ship

    ^I'd already done that with my 23rd century Galaxy class.

    Don't know why, but this is the way she "wanted" to come out...

    I did a "skinnier" version of the new secondary hull and did "refits" of the Defender and my seemingly-never-finished Galaxy.

    The 980 is a spunky-great design. The wide shuttlebay on your Galaxy with your new saucer has really come into its own

    I like how you have the nacelles raised on the Pax--the only helpful hint might be to make the nacelles a bit thinner to keep it sleek. Great saucer on that. I've been waiting for someone to place a super reliant saucer on a super-refit secondary hull. You might play around with that a bit more.

    Something about your defender really speaks to me. The nacelle pairs come from Stargazer, but I wonder what it might look like if you omitted the bottom nacelle and its supporting structure--so that you had only the upper section of the stargazer nacelle supports.

    That might look cool on its own.

    Interesting thoughts, publisur...I might tinker at some point.

    I replaced the image of the original Pax with a "cleaned up" version. Got rid of the saucer shuttlebays and cleaned up the detailing on the side as well as improving the interconnecting dorsal (the proportioning was off).

    Then I got a request from a friend who I'd shown it to. He liked it but thought it needed "something", so I got to thinking about additional pods and such. I came up with some alternate configurations.

    First, with only a couple of additional pods.

    And a variant of this with a big "ship buster" anti-proton cannon added.

    Next I did one adding the "roll bar", but replacing the megaphasers with either more sensor/jammer pods, or maybe some other form of weapon (but no anti-proton cannon)
    [​IMG]

    My friend liked the last one the best. I think it might be a bit too much. I do like the one with just the two undersaucer pods though...

    What do you all think?

    And, because publisur asked, a 2-nacelle Defender...
