    Never been thrilled with the Daedalus class nor many of the conjectural and non canon ships of the 2160s to 2220s. Here I take a stab at something for this era. No spherical primary hull. I did like the Hyperion secondary hull though.

    USS Hyperion was originally designed by Trek BBS member Paul Cargile (a long time ago!), and then adapted by me into a 4-view blueprint for my Starfleet Museum site (also a long time ago, but not nearly as long).

    The main issue I had with it was trying to make what appeared to be a transitional primary hull form from the spherical Daedalus to the later saucer. The result was something that didn't seem satisfying to me, especially on the underside. It does have good features too though. I think a retconned Daedalus could use that secondary hull.
