nice but isn't the shuttle bay a bit big, it seems to take up most of the saucer. saquist mentions computer cores but i should think that that far in the future the neccessary computers for interstellar travel may only be the size of modern desktops, however there are surely many other systems that need to be on your ship. if the shuttle bay is that big why not dispense with as ship entirely and have several large warp capable heavily armed/armoured shuttles? try either fitting more shuttles into the bay or making the bay smaller as it seems larger than neccessary for only a few shuttles. on another note i rather like the ship and think it is good that someone wants to model an interior.

Ok, we're disagreeing on this one.
With regard to kinetic dangers of flight operations. Obviously nothing vital goes in the forward bulk head of the flight deck. Beyond that, there is only so much you can do.
Wouldn't an antimatter explosion anywhere inside the hull be catastrophic?
The new image shows the proposed location of the computer core, the sphere 60' in diameter.
I think what looks like wasted space will be very quickly filled but I'll look at aircraft carriers for inspiration.
I really hope there is no comparison to Abrams. Honestly, I have always felt the Star Trek ships were too spacious inside. There is a balance and I'll find what makes sense.
As always, I value you input.

Entrance and egress? The main hanger doors are the same width as original sovereign but probably three times taller. There is a rough traffic pattern through the maintenance bay, in on the right hand side, round and out on the left. The flight-deck can easily handle three abreast with plenty of additional room for pushing them around. If your asking about personnel access I had not into that yet.
Shuttle numbers, as determined by author:
- Type-9 Shuttlecraft -- x2
- Type-11 Shuttlecraft -- x4
- Argo-type Runabout -- x1 and its associates (buggy x1, auxiliary buggies x3, emergency buggy x1). I guess Placed 2.
- Delta Flyer-type Runabout -- x2
- Danube-type Runabout -- x2
- Huron-type Runabout -- x2
- Captain's Yacht -- x1
- Several Peregrine-class fighters. (Which are quite large) most are intended to be in aft hanger. I'd actually like to design a whole new smaller fighter). I have my misgivings about fighters in Star Trek.
I'm not sure where you got 300 meter, try 685m 2248' in length, 237m 778' in width, and a rather tall 84m 275' in height.
