I'm currently in the middle of working on this design for a Discovery era (well, circa 2230s, but in Disco style) utility ship that is designed to be stationed at colonies. We're always seeing in star trek the big ships coming to colony worlds and then warping off again at the end of the episode, but surely a colony would be in need of its own ship? Nothing fancy, just something that can haul a little cargo, ward off small raiders and pirates, and help the colony grow. The new John Eaves designs from Discovery were the initial jumping off point for me when designing the ship. I've also been inspired by the shapes of various Trilobite species (hence the ship name.) Firstly, I blocked the basic shape out in a low poly-count model, figuring out the proportions, as well as methods of attaching a train of cargo containers: And here's the current work-in-progress state the ship is in. There's still some placeholder geometry to work on, such as the bridge, but I think it's generally getting there.
