Played a bit more with my ship between cleaning and binging Game of Thrones on the free HBO weekend. 

She's got saucer markings now, gravitational thruster packages on the saucer (why would they use a conventional thruster system when they have grav plating and artificial gravity?  In a ship this small keeping that much spare fuel for the thrusters wouldn't be practical either way) along with the running lights. And she's finally got an impulse engine.  I might refine the grill after I import it into DAZ cause it's pretty much on the thin side right now.

I started adding some detailing to the secondary hull. Tried a refinement on the torpedo/probe launchers but I think I'll need to rebuild them as it didn't quite work as well as I thought it would. 

I am not done with the saucer as it's going to have windows, but I wanted to work on the rest of the ship a bit first as there's going to be a LOT of interior work on the saucer between the corridor placement as well as room arrangements before I put any windows into her hull. 

Built and Rendered in Truespace 3.1

Very Nice!!  A great design! Seems like it could be either a civilian ship or possibly a medical ship.  Or even a light science vessel.  I realize you decided to make a civilian ship but this basic design could potentially be outfitted for multiple purposes.

Yeah that was part of my thinking behind it. Good multi-purpose craft, cheap to build and maintain but easily usable by just about anyone. Starfleet would obviously beef her up with at least one phaser bank for a military version.

Practical multipurpose use.  A great idea.

To think this started with me wanting something small but less cramped than the Archer class. ;)

Thanks! :)  I'm far more comfortable working on interiors so this is a nice challenge for me.
