    Thanks. Figured it would be better to post her in a separate thread rather than hijack @Warped9 's one.
    I see this ship a shadow of things to come in the form of the Mars Defense Probes featured in TNG: Best of Both Worlds.

    Now that is lovely, reminds me a bit of some destroyers in the Space Battleship Yamato series and indeed a space submarine.:mallory::techman:

    Excellent work. Love it. Could see it on the cover of a Heinlein type novel.

    Yeah, pretty funky. You're using some layering that makes the ship pop real nice.
    That striping in the back almost looks like it's panelling that moves down to open up into a really small shuttlebay. Even if that wasn't your original plan, I think that could work quite well.

    That would be a great tanker...under the Enterprise, tubing running up...topping off the big E

    Thanks! Actually the shuttlebay is on her ventral side as a drop-bay.

    She is way too small...but I like the idea of a TOS tanker...never thought about doing something like that.

    If you were to flip that up-side down--it would make for an interesting secondary hull--of a Mon Cal shape. Nacelles rising from the saddle tanks--with missile tubes in the forward section of those.

    Thanks

    You mean the fish guys from Star Wars? Aren't their ships essentially blimps with blisters?

    I was thinking a huge secondary hull, with a cluster of dishes—the huge saddle tanks being roots of mega warp pylons.. tiny shuttlebays in the side of the hull, pylons and nacelles

    That's an interesting concept!
