    And now a New Year's gift! :)

    The Europa is probably my favourite DSC design, and among my favourite non-Enterprise starfleet ships.
    Since the USS Europa from Discovery is pre-Kirk, and the Europa class in STO is post-Picard (TNG style), I decided to do something in the middle: a refit version that would sit somewhere around the time of Star Trek VI. Here is the original and the STO version:

    And now my refit version:

    Happy new year's, and I hope 2021 bears better fruit than 2020 for everyone.

    Grand idea!
    STO establishes that such intermediate designs are possible, with the Walker-/Georgiou-/Shenzhou-class lineup.

    Not a huge fan of what they did on the Georgiou, however. It doesn't really even look like the Shenzhou. Hey, that's a great idea for a new project!

    That is some excellent work. Good design made even better.

    Happy New Year!

    Thank you for all your comments and happy new year as well.

    I hope 2021 turns out generally better than 2020.

    Ever since I first saw the Europa, I've been wondering: was Kirk's Farragut a class-sister to that ship? Could it have been such?

    Better and better
    I'd like to see you do a Planet of the Titans type ship, at a large scale, please.

    A refit era with a wide thin saucer was what I was thinking of— nacelles being shorter and higher
