    Hey, everybody. :)

    I've been working on this for the past week or so... my wife and I have been watching through Voyager on Netflix, and one afternoon I thought to myself: "what if I built Voyager out of my STXI Refit Enterprise parts?"

    Well, That's what I did. :) This ship is about half the size of Enterprise, with a totally different saucer, of course.

    I think it turned out interesting, and it even evokes the feel of the real Voyager... even though none of the parts are the same shape. :)

    To quote so many, "holy crap". Seriously beautiful and a whole lot more than rearranged parts.

    Better looking than the "original" Voyager I think.

    And are her nacelles mounted "fixed wing"?

    Looks pretty nice, but without the curvature it still lacks a huge chunk of the Voyager feel.

    That aside, it's a masterful arrangement for the most part and quite aesthetically pleasing.

    ^ Which means it also lacks Voyager's resemblance to a toilet seat :lol:

    Well you got me sold on this with one exception. I don't like the positioning of the nacelles- I really think they should be angled up so they can see each other a little.

    Otherwise, me likey!

    I like that design better than anything in ST IX.

    Very nice design. I see where you were inspired by Voyager, but it's different enough to be completely original. I love it.

    Agreed wholeheartedly. Thumbs up!
    Intrepid class always bothered me because it wasn't pretty. This is beautiful.

    Thanks, guys. :) This was just a quick one, that I had to build in a hurry because of the idea in my head. :)

    I'm trying to decide what my next project will be... I kind of want to do a restyled Galaxy Class, but I don't know. I'm fixing to have free time to actually work on things. :)

    I'm a little tired of my Enterprise Refit, already. :)

    No doubt about it- JJ Abrams needs to get you on staff.You are the master of designs for that universe.

    Rotating the nacelles 90 degrees solves almost every complaint I had with them, and the little bits and pieces from other popular ships just ices the cake.

    Love it, as always!

    To much cool Ricky! Just add a few lifeboats on top and, maybe, to the sides of the sec hull. Put phaser stripes over the saucer and on the underside of the sec hull, and you have a winner for sure!
    Oh and share it, PLEASE! ;)
