    Thank YOU for drawing it up. An excellent upgrade to an old favorite.

    Per chance, were you going to take a shot at aft & ventral views or are you going to keep it to the original 3?

    Yeah, it’s an interesting ship — an interesting collection of different things. I like how it could fit in the late Excelsior / early Ambassador eras and you can see elements that would evolve into the Galaxy.

    I’d love it if you could do a colorized three-quarter drawing like you do with some of your other ships @Atolm. Doesn’t have to be anything definitive, just to play with this a little more. I’d love to have more to put into the ol’ head canon.

    The spine being the attachment point for the nacelles is interesting in that it suggests the possibility of the star drive being an interchangeable pod. Don’t know if I’d like it that way, but it is interesting.

    I did manage to print off the physical models photos off starshipmodeler. I knew where they were before my water damage incident of a couple of years ago…going to have to look for them.

    I think this is a great improvement over the original. You’ve straightened out the lines and made greater sense of the parts. Two things that bother me that endure from the original however, are the pylons and the flush vents on the dorsal. On the Ingram, similar nacelles are mounted on rectangular, horizontal pylons that make a 90-degree bend to connect to the nacelle. I would think that if this ship retained anything like that enginery, it might have a pylon closer to the original (still swept back and minus the megaphaser, but rhomboid). As for the flush vents, they just seem much too big on the original, and you’ve retained something I can’t make sense of. That’s an awful lot of dorsal to give over to whatever it is the flush vents… flush.

    But overall, great work. Your range always impresses me. Nothing is too far out, or in this case, too far in. :techman:

    Hey thanks bro! Seriously, thanks.
    I really appreciate the insight coming from you on a project like this (especially since you are one of the OGs of this kind of work )... Maybe if time allows, I'll see what can be done...Perhaps yet another variant...lol

    I know I'm a little late on this, but I'm going to be saving ALL of your sketches on this. So glad I found my old Alaska-class poster. I just knew you'd get this thing going the right way!

    I would still love to see what your design looks like with megaphasers. Perhaps an earlier/original version with the megaphasers and phaser turrets, and maybe this can be the upgraded version with the newer enhancements.
