Having been a great admirer of the spherical primary hull since becoming a Trek fan, I thought I'd chip in with my own vision. This is my attempt to consolidate a spherical hull with a more traditional neck and stardrive. It's a very early model so a lot of refinement, additions and revisions to come. The neck as it connects to the primary hull will mostly stay the same as I want to show how the outer elements of ship design started to transition inwards to where we get to the Constitution where virtually all of the ship machinery in encased within a beautiful, flowing hull. There will of course be parts that are strictly on the outside. I might change my mind, we'll see how it goes. As for scale, take this as three quarters the length of the Constitution with a launch year of 2220 and was retired in 2286 without undergoing the near all-fleet refit of the 2270's, putting it firmly between the retirement of the Daedalus in 2196 and the launch of the Constitution circa 2245. Consider this model about 25% finished and updates will follow.
