I like the side by side nacelles.
Here is another modification I did based off of the Jiangwei Class that Vance did. I decided to remove the smaller photon torpedo pods and add the Abbe Class PT Destroyer pod instead. I also added a hanger-bay to the primary hull. I really enjoy Vance's work, and my modifications are by no means a belittlement of his talent.
Good Design there
Love your Jiangwei class there.
Here is another modification of a Vance starship. The Shepard Class Light Cruiser. Originally listed as an Escort, I decided to add sensor pods and a miranda type hanger bay. I felt that with the additions, calling it a Light Cruiser made sense.
very logical additions there
Here is a modification of the Knox Class Frigate using the ship Vance built. I removed one of the hanger bays and replaced the “mega phasers” with sensor pods. Personally I never liked “mega phasers”, nor have I ever agreed with the designation of Frigate. So this ship is classified as a Medium Cruiser for research and exploration. The only reason the Reliant had phasers located on the roll-bar was in order to not confuse the audience during Wrath of Khan. Otherwise it would appear as if the Enterprise was firing upon itself.
Nice Knox class Variants
Thanks for the replies!
Here is another modification of a Vance starship. The Dastoor Class. Originally designated as a Scrapyard Cruiser (I am not exactly sure what a Scrapyard Cruiser is) I felt that if a made some modifications, I could "salvage" it into an exploration vessel. Additionally, in Farsi, Dastoor is a noun meaning order or edict.
I replaced the large photon looking pods with sensor pods.
Here is a modification of the Cochise Class Destroyer created by Vance. I felt the original placement of the Photon Torpedo pod was problematic, as there might not be enough room for the intermix chamber. I decided to place it on the top of the primary hull, similar to the Kiev Class.
On the Dastoor, if the nacelles were ever so slightly higher, and the two sensor pods were shrunk and moved closer together and farther back to either side of the impulse deflection crystal, it would mirror the nacelles better.
Nice work on the Cochise
would there be some advantage to that?
I decided to modify the Diana Class Scout which was created by Vance. I reduced the number of warp nacelles to just one and added a sensor pod.
Nice precurser to i think Jackill's Anubis class Scout
Having the nacelles a bit above them would give clearance.
