That's fair enough - you've got to go with your own instincts and create the ship with the style cues you want. Now that there is a comparison image, it's definately the lack of horizontal cues in the secondary hull that is bothering me. The things that lend to this are: The introduction of the TMP style torpedo bay. A slight straightening of the spine (to accomodate the torpedo bay). The change from a long base where the warp pylons join the secondary hull. Smoothed out hull - now symmetrical above/below the deflector dish. These give the rear 50% of the hull the feeling like its on a 5 degree downslope - almost like it's starting to melt. Concerning my own "tweak", I was thinking what would it be like if you were to introduce a stripe styled similar to one of the three "deflector rings" that run around the saucer rim? Concerning the warp nacelles. OK the scoop bits could be kept. But again the nacelle stripes are on a slight upslope, which to me doesn't work. Cheers, S.O.
