    Now that they're complete, I can see what you meant. This version is definitely more Kelvin-y, and it kept my favorite aspects of your earlier version.

    I'm curious about the backwards-pointed delta integrated into the red trim. Is there a precedent or inspiration for that?

    I have to be more patient “it isn’t finished yet!”

    It's on Khan's jumpship in Into Darkness, and I thought it looked cool.

    It has that 'hot rod' look that is all through the Kelvin verse. Love that look

    In the movie they do. I think it looks better anyway.

    I keep hoping we'll get to see some new renders of the "Planet Killer" in your style. That "thing" is my earliest memory of Trek (I may have seen it upon its first broadcast) and like the Daleks were for British kids, that "monster" accompanied by the ominous score by Sol Kaplan made me dive behind my father's favorite chair literally crying in fright!

    The thicker stem is on the wrong side. That violates Starfleet's brand guidelines. ;)

    Sorry, I haven't had any free time to work on it. I am on a tight deadline at work until the 25th, and I've been working 60-80 hour weeks to get it done. I have WANTED to work on this Oberth, but work is just sucking the life out of me.

    Beautiful work. What's the origin of the name Schirra?

    It's a half-homage to the USS Grissom. that ship was named after Gus Grissom, one of the Mercury Seven -- and thusly, so's this one; named after Wally Schirra; ninth human in space by way of the Mercury missions, achiever of the first space rendezvous (putting his Gemini VI-A capsule at station-keeping with Gemini VII within a foot), and commander of Apollo 7, the first manned Apollo mission.

    I'm slowly (utterly inexperienced at this ) working on a Kelvinized Nova, but gosh your Oberth is on fire (well, all your work is, but I'm extremely here for the small ships)
