    Oh...I get you. That would have to be for another thread. As this is for TOS re-interpretations of the ships in Discovery :)

    Okay, time to address the proverbial "elephant in the room"...the D-7. I have seen stills of what ST: Discovery has called the D-7 and it is a travesty to us fans (again, I love the design, just not for the ship it was supposed to represent). So, originally I was not going to do the D-7 as we all know what she is supposed to look like (even all her re-interpretations and re-uses are generally more true to form then what we have seen in ST:Discovery), so I saw no point in redrawing her... But I then gave it some thought and figured, why not take this opportunity to add to the D-7 family as a fielded variant in the Klingon fleet. So here she is... The D-7XL (now for all you aircraft aficionados you will get this designation's connection to the F-16XL).

    Enjoy:

    I'm really loving all your designs, but I really LOVE this one. Still has that look but definitely works as a variant of the class.

    Thanks!
    That's what I thought would work for a variant, like this:

    @Atolm you should be working on CBS’ production design team! Great stuff!

    They do possess variable geometry movement... If you look carefully you'll see that the pivoting point would allow for only for downward, straight, and slightly raised. Not the full range of movement that the TMP KBoP has, but enough.

    Thanks, but they seemingly don't want guys like us, who eat, sleep and breath Trek.

    ^ Of course they don't, people who care about Trek would probably burn them at the stake!

    It makes it much more difficult to "kill your darlings" in the industry.
