    Honestly, I’m for only having an aft torpedo emplacement. I mean, if you’re a little science vessel, and you’re in a situation where you need to be firing torpedoes, ideally you would want to be running away!

    It is up to you. But I do think it fits the science vessel concept if the only torps are defensive aft launchers (if being chased) and a few forward phasers for utility sake and clearing asteroids and such.
    No need for a full arsenal if it is not going to be in a combat situation. And while aft torps would help, they wouldn't carry very many.

    It may not have been called Reliant, but Grissom was a K car compared to Enterprise’s LTD/Crown Vic’

    I was thinking more Ford Pinto, with a one-and-done, but point taken. :)

    I imported your 3d model of the ship into Minecraft at 335m length and then detailed it :). I also made a few changes to the ship such as a rear shuttlebay and an in-saucer deflector dish.

    What do you think?

    I made a post about the build on PlanetMinecraft: https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/star-trek-uss-tyson/

    And linked back here of course!

    That is awesome! I had thought about doing a deflector like that, but I got too lazy to add it. I love it.

    I like it so much in fact, I might modify my VFX model to match yours.

    To refit the Tyson into the Minecraft version by JackSP, I have completed a new deflector dish. Look good? Look bad? What say you? Also added the registry number to the nacelle as he has on his.

    I like it. The cutout in front makes the ship look more "finished" than it did with just a plain saucer, more like a complete unit rather than a separated saucer section. The NX-02/Binary Stars shape is era-appropariate, while the blue glowing cutouts is very Kelvinverse, doing that thing where the '60s-style copper dish is "hidden" by the lights when it's turned on.

    Woah it's looking great I love it! :D May I ask what your opinion is on the rear Nx-style shuttlebay I added?

    Upgrades to the Tyson design complete. Biggest is a new saucer-mounted deflector dish. Other small changes include adding registry numbers to the nacelles, a name plate on the back, a forward torpedo launcher on the saucer underside, and docking ports on the saucer edge.

    It more or less now matches JackSP's Minecraft version of the design.

    Do you, by any chance, have updated orthos available? :)
