    Back to the stationery store: a new envelope is needed!

    What's the era for this ship? Do the doughnuts rotate (like a Osprey's nacelles) or are they stationary?

    The top view reminds me of one of the "Red Set" battleships from Master of Orion (and MOO2).

    The "Titan" from MOO is similar:

    That's a pretty fascinating design, to me it looks like a federation ship which incorporates strong Vulcan elements. I can very easily imagine it to have a fairly standard federation color, with vulcan rusty red elements as well.

    Very nice design!

    It looks cool - like a starship using Ori technology.

    Sweet!

    As a kid the first time I saw a very low-res screenshot of the DS9 pilot battle I thought the aft shot of that Nebula was some ship with a single round nacelle on a pillar. This ship's side view kinda reminded me of that.

    She's one pretty lady. Is there a story behind the halo-style nacelles?

    Thanks mate!

    LOL... no the nacelles do not rotate, nor pivot, but that's a cool idea on its own :)

    never heard of that, but that link has some interesting minis for sure :)

    Thanks mates, very much appreciated.

    that's a great visual you have just described... nice mate! And thanks!

    LOL, thanks

    Ooooh the Ori, I miss those ships :(

    That is an awesome Idea! I almost opted something like that, before I settled on the Halo's current shape... I may have to explore that one a bit more!

    Thanks mate! They are a space Folding/jumping FTL drive. She still has conventional warp as an option, but her primary FTL is Folding space.

    My first thought? That a single "nacelle" version of this would look a lot like the Protector from Galaxy Quest. :D Seriously nice work though! :techman:

    Neat idea but I don't think you're quite there yet. The side view suffers a lot for not having the long lines of the nacelles to balance out the overall shape of the ship.

    Daaaaamn. That is absolutely breathtaking. Your attention to detail is amazing. And those are the coolest nacelles ever!

    I agree it alters the symmetry from the norm. But... What if the rings were larger, to create a new symmetry?

    It'd pretty strongly resembled the symmetry of some science fiction vtol crafts.

    It gives me a gorgeous mental image of this thing descending through an exotic atmosphere, to some super sexy looking coast on a clear green sea... With lots of scantily clad star trek vixens relaxing on the beach and oiling each other up while waiting for the USS Halot to arrive with the ice and romulan ales.

    This.

    But if that is figured out, she'll be a beauty.

    Thanks!
    It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who finds the idea of a single disc-shaped nacelle (instead of two rows of coils being in separate nacelles) somewhat intriguing, although probably not easy to do right.

    What if you were to double up on the nacelles, with one set sweeping up and back with the other set swept down and forward? Might balance it out a little more.
