#10 USS Typhon and Valkyrie Fighters (Star Trek: Invasion) http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_Invasion Invasion may not have been a popular game, and it was damn frustrating to play--but the notion of a true Fighter Carrier ship, and true Starfleet fighters still to this day gets my imagination going. Sure it may be a rip off of the old Galactica in some ways. Nevertheless, the possibilities this mobile fortress opens up are very neat. #9 USS Titan - Sean Tourangeau http://stourangeau.deviantart.com I wasn't a fan when this design was picked as the winner, but it has since grown on me. On looks I'd say this is the successor to the Nebula Class, and it'll function as the workhorse for Starfleet for the next 40 years. #8 USS Concord - Dennis Bailey (Lost the thread with all the beauty shots in it!) I loved this update to the Constitution Class. I don't know what the Connies are used for in the modern fleet... but if I were a mid level diplomat on a four day voyage somewhere, I would not mind riding in on the Concord! #7 Infinity Class - Unknown, Credit needed. http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=105184&page=15 I like how compact and aggressive this ship is. It seems like it would be the tactical brother to the Nova class. They could share hardware and engine components, but this vessel would have less scientific instruments, and more armor and weapons packages. #6 Talon Class - Paul S. Cargile http://www.scifi-meshes.com/forums/showthread.php?49610-Blasts-from-the-past.-(12-img) I can totally see a trio of these ships, along with a pair of Defiants escorting some Galaxy class vessels into a major confrontation, torpedoes firing away. This ship, with it's stance alone will draw enemy fire. #5 USS Enterprise-F - Adam Ilhe http://ihlecreations.com/Concepts/concepts.html Truth be told, it's an interesting design, but I personally don't see this vessel as the successor to the Sovereign Class or the new Flagship of the United Federation of Planets. I think it's too wide at spots, and looks good from only a few angles. Nevertheless, I love the competition that birthed it, and if is the new Big E, if only in the MMO-verse, then I'll salute it! #4 USS Grandeur - Vektor http://www.scifi-meshes.com/forums/showthread.php?638-USS-Grandeur-Final-Version/page83 I don't know what Vektor's thoughts were on the role of this vessel. I saw it as Starfleet's move to replace all the Galaxy class ships we lost in the Dominion War, with upgraded systems and an aesthetic that would bring the role of this capital type ship back to exploration. Galaxy muscle, with diplomatic elegance. #3 NX-01 Refit - Doug Drexler http://drexfiles.wordpress.com/ Thank you Doug! I would have watched season 5 for the new design alone! Man, this design is great on so many levels. Such a shame! If this was the design out of the gate, so many arguments on these forums could've been avoided! #2 Eaves Class - Mark Kingsnorth (Based off sketches by John Eaves) http://www.markkingsnorth.com/category/starships/eaves-class/ This ship is so pretty! It seems like a clear successor to the Excelsior class in a way the Sovereign Class has outdone. It's a little derivative of course, but it's still so beautiful. It looks like it's ready to jump off the web and onto the screen. Great model work! #1 USS Aventine - Mark Rademaker http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/USS_Aventine This ship is incredible. I want it. I want a model of it in my hands. I want to see it weekly on TV. I want it to fly across the starscapes while the main credits roll. It's so captivating. It looks amazing from so many angles. Honestly, with respects to Mr. Ilhe, THIS should be the Enterprise-F! Slipstream drive huh? Guess Starfleet's taking the big leap.
