Ok, this is my first attempt at Starship design. This is based on the well known pre-production sketch by Matt Jefferies, which was basically an inverted version of what would become the more familiar Constitution-Class. I started out with bits and pieces in Vance's toolkits and adjusted them to fit my design better. My goal was to try and stay true to Jefferies sketch and not have it just be a mere rearrangement of Connie components. The saucer is meant to be roughly the same size as the Connie saucer. This is in line with the specuation that the Constellation was originally of this class and refitted later. I would speculate that this was possible due to the primary hulls of both designs using a very similar space-frame. By and large I didn't have any great technological theories behind the design. I just wanted something that looked good AND was somewhat true to the sketch. I'm still not 100% pleased with it though & will likely tweak the design at some point in the future. Hope you enjoy!
