    Very cool design but the nacelles seem a bit too post TNG to me.

    Thank you, the nacelles are about 70% constitution class. I have changed just some parts like the bussard collector, added some fins on top and bottom and add the blueish light. That was enough to make it looking more modern

    Ahoi...

    I really like this. On the first look it remindet me in Star Trek Online (probably because of the lighting). But when you really look at it, for more then a split second, you see all the TOS-Influences. Very nice proportions. It looks good (and fast) from every angle. I think its pretty easy to pinpoint the era its supposed to be from (while at the same time it has a pretty unique take on it), so good job on that too.

    Coincidentally I'am working on a ship from roughly the same era (closer to TNG then to TOS) that looks completly different. (upload tomorrow)

    May I ask what Programs You are using?

    Greetings to Daniel from Germany, from Daniel from Germany.

    Guess there's also a USS Art Deco of the same class?

    ^ Seven of Nine could be the CO or designer/architect of the USS Cubist then, I suppose?

    (Sorry, I couldn’t resist. It was... futile.)

    Cheers,

    Indeed that is what I was referring to, you've named your ship after an art movement, you've also got renaissance, rococo, baroque and so on and I guessed that you would have named other ships in the class after these since they then all follow the same theme.

    I see, well this is true. I choosed that name on purpose as i think that it fits perfectly to my ship. Here is a quote from wikipedia to avant-garde.

    The avant-garde (/ˌævɒ̃ˈɡɑːrd/;[2] French: [avɑ̃ɡaʁd];[3] from French, "advance guard" or "vanguard", literally "fore-guard")[4] are people or works that are experimental, radical, or unorthodox with respect to art, culture, or society.[4][5][6] It is frequently characterized by aesthetic innovation and initial unacceptability.[7]

    The avant-garde pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm. The avant-garde is considered by some to be a hallmark of modernism, as distinct from postmodernism.[citation needed] Many artists have aligned themselves with the avant-garde movement, and still continue to do so, tracing their history from Dada through the Situationists and to postmodern artists such as the Language poets around 1981.[8][failed verification]

    The avant-garde also promotes radical social reforms. It was this meaning that was evoked by the Saint Simonian Olinde Rodrigues in his essay "L'artiste, le savant et l'industriel" ("The artist, the scientist and the industrialist", 1825), which contains the first recorded use of "avant-garde" in its now customary sense: there, Rodrigues calls on artists to "serve as [the people's] avant-garde", insisting that "the power of the arts is indeed the most immediate and fastest way" to social, political and economic reform.[9]
