I wanted to do a battleship for the Ferengi, that would be situated in TNG after the Borg attack in their sector (In the books). As such, I am trying to respect the look and colour tones, but with a bit more aggressive look. I don't have much time for 3D these days. I changed the central part a bit, because it wasn't alien enough for me. Second I wanted a reflective/glossy texture that would shows the greed and vanity of the ferengi.
