    Looks pretty good to me.

    I don't think I'm a fan of the sharp corners on the primary hull. It looks like a descent of the F-117.

    I like sharp edges, reminds me a bit of the Prometheus class

    I don't see any sharp edges on the Prometheus class, though: http://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars...ass-dorsal.jpg

    I mean the real sharp corner points, not the overall shape of the primary. I like the shape -- it's kinda like a snake's head! -- just not the pointy corners.

    Out of curiosity, is there any particular reason, in the Star Trek canon, for the engine nacelles to be set out from the ship like that? I mean, it seems common to ships of the Federation (aside from the Defiant in DS9) but it also seems like a pretty significant liability for a ship in combat. I may be over-thinking this.

    That aside, this is very cool. I like taking a break from my fantasy mapping endeavors to duck in here and ogle the space-ships.

    Well, memory serves, that the nacelles generated radiation when being used that could be detrimental to crew, and so were located on pylons away from the main ship.

    This is common in Klingon Vessels, Romulan, and Vulcan ships. Ferengi vessels do not have the warp nacelles seperated, and possibly may use a slightly different type of war technology.

    I think the nacelles have more to do with the 50s and 60s models Cadillacs. Check out the fins on a '59

    Indeed. I could have made the nacelles a bit more like the Sovereign class's.
