    I know from reading some of the past threads on the subject that my particular entry is not loved by all. That's fine. I'd be amazed if it was.

    Anyway, here's my piece. I'll let it stand (or fall) on its own.

    Only noticed due to the bigger pic that some of the "phaser" blasts are green...is there a special reason for that?

    Huh, I sorta of like it. Reminds me a lot of the 'bashes from the old DC Comics.

    Stolen Romulan disruptors?

    Great image. I like that USS John Glenn. A little fan-wanky, but 6 forward photon tubes would make it pretty formidable.

    What are all the ship names and their classes.

    Enterprise-Duh

    John Glenn NCC-2707, the Sun Tzu NCC-2530, and the others.

    Nice picture by the way.

    I'd be interested in seeing Schematic views of your Kitbash ships and know what thier names and classes were nice work by the way :techman:

    While I have the greatest respect for your modelling work (I could never in a trillion years pull off something like that), I'm not very fond of the image in general. The ship designs are cool, but I don't like the overcrowded arrangement. Also, the harsh colours and the exaggerate starfield and planet background make it look somewhat cartoony. I'm sure less would have been more in this case.

    Looks lovely to me. Reminds me a little of DS9. How detailed are the meshes themselves?

    Cartoony! Thanks! Something bothered me about this image, but I couldn't say what. The colors, the lighting...

    Looking forward to the new edition of the calendar on the strength of this image in particular, then...and wondering which of the novelists will take the visual and run with it!

    Wondering how you'd get into the torpedo bays for the port and starboard launchers. Artificial gravity having its usages once again, by the looks of it.

    Obviously the pylons aren't as wide as the neck, maybe they load them in the secondary hull, then they move to the launchers on a belt.

    Kinda like we saw in Enterprise.

    Thanks for the nice comments, everyone.
    Sorry it doesn't appeal to you. But "Cartoony" is OK by me. "Harsh colours"? I don't see it that way, but to each their own.

    Some more than others. ;) The Glenn is highly detailed, as is the Ent-A, but the rest got just what they needed and nothing more.

    I love your TMP era designs, Neoworx! Something you might want to do. If you were to design the 1701-A from scratch, forgetting there was ever an Excelsior, how would you have designed the new ST IV Enterprise-A?

    Since you reference the Excelsior, do you mean the 1701-B? Otherwise, I think the 1701-A would look just as it did, regardless of whether the Excelsior design existed.
