    This configuration looks much better head on too. So thanks to @Barricade for the suggestion. There is of course, more detail work to be done.

    Appreciated @Starship

    I might like the above with the split saucers instead. The two side bubbles on the neck are a mall/restaurant/Recreation.

    I like this one the best. The spheres on the side look better than the saucers and I like the elongated saucer at the base and dual saucers up top. I think it all balances nicely.

    Still Chipping away. Some of this has not been converted to Lightwave's "Principled BSDF" and so there is snow on it.

    @Freak Thank-you sir. Also @evil_genius_180 and @Lizzy777

    I've started a Decatur Class. Why not!? I've got the saucer and engines already.

    The fun part of Trek kitbashes is anyone can use the same parts over and over to make a myriad of different ships.

    I was never a huge fan of wrapping the pylons underneath the secondary hull but I think you made it work!

    I can't take credit for the original of course.

    @Lizzy777 Very true. However, the part I have to do over is that difficult shuttle bay at the back.

    @Loophole Must agree. There are a number of ship designs I have never cared for, yet when I tackle them they grow on me. It's true in this case.

    Thank-you for the "Likes" @Rekkert @Lizzy777 @MadKoiFish @Loophole and @furswift

    Nice start. I'm a fan of that design.

    Nice work so far. The Ascension/Belknap has been a favorite since I got Starship Design at a convention way back when. Gods I'm old.

    Thanks @evil_genius_180 and @ashleytinger

    I'm now a fan of it too.

    A new angle. More work on it.

    t0k4creb1alc.png

    I also wanted to mention that I went back to Disneyland Anaheim, and got one ride on the new "Rise of the Resistance" Star Wars Galaxy's edge ride.
    If you get the chance - you've go to see this! The scale of the thing is massive. I've stood in a life size Docking Bay of a Star Destroyer with 200 Storm Troopers all lined up and at attention. Behind them is a HUGE screen depicting space outside of the docking bay with ships moving across it. Crystal Clear. There are tie fighters, shuttles and other ships in the bay with you. We were being taken to interrogation after getting tractored into the bay.

    How we got into the bay is a mystery. We started in a forest boarding a resistance shuttle. Blaster damage appears as you travel through this thing. Guaranteed to make you walk away scratching your head and asking, "How did they do that?"

    This is coming along quite nicely! Such a graceful design, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it. :)

    I made a lot of progress on the front and most of the hull and neck. Some detail on the front needed and I haven't quite finished the shuttle bay aft.

    Really like the shapes in the secondary hull on this.

    The secondary hull is looking great so far.

    I had the same thought about this shipp looking like the Belknap, or even a variation of the Churchill Class too. @Brandenberg has done a great job so far.

    This secondary hull was the most difficult to machine & carve as a physical master pattern. I only had basic blue prints to work from.
    Yours looks great!

    Another angle - been working on smoothing and unifying the model.

    There was a comic either set between Star Trek V and Star Trek VI where Kirk is in Nogura's office, and he's talking about better protecting the Constitution class nacelles by bringing them down below the saucer. I always thought this class was the result of that thought. I mean yeah I'm sure the writer was putting thought towards the Next Gen Enterprise, but I figure Nogura is a more immediate kind of guy.

    I'm really loving how she's coming together.

    I didn't know about that one. I'm really glad you shared it. Yeah this design isn't something I would have immediately thought of but it works and works well.

    Thank-you @evil_genius_180 and @Freak

    On another note: I'm going to have to taper the front some toward the deflector because the two side sensor structures really need to be better smoothed into the main hull. Of course the bottom one is just fine because of the steep slope there.

    Also one construction thought should anyone want to try this ship. It was inevitable but I had to slightly twist the engine pylons along their length toward the underside of the main hull. It's subtle but really made things cleaner.

    I had to adjust the deflector size down to add some detail around it. I tapered the front too, fixing the side sensor bodies.
