A boldly new design in Warp field geometry.

And if anyone says it's ugly, I'll rip his nuts off! :D

Unusual design. What purpose or functiion does the large structure sticking out from the keel serve/perform?

BTW, "ugly" was not my first thought although "ungainly" was. Oh and FYI, when I was involved in the "Starfleet" club/organization I was the first person to gain membership in the "Corps Of Starfleet Engineers" by challenging the qualifying/entrance exam as opposed to taking the online course and taking the exam as the course final. I am not unlearned/unknowledgeable as regards treknology.

If you find the description "ungainly" to be as offensive as "ugly", I invite you to attempt to carry out your threat.

To be honest, this looks like it could be be beginnings of the starbases/space docks becoming mobile.

Ooohhhhh...wouldn't want that, but she's a bit of an oddball. What's she called?

 Sure she isn't sleek as a Sovereign class, but that doesn't necessarily means she isn't majestic like a Galaxy class (though not as much). 

It definitely helps the design's case that the modeling work is outstanding! :D

It works well as a Star Trek ship; one of the things I always liked about Star Trek, (prior to DS9's Defiant and the Enterprise-E) is that the ships weren't "streamlined" in a way that made sense from an aircraft or water-craft point of view; they were "sleek," but in a slightly alien or unconventional manner, which added plausibility to the idea of a faster-than-light spacecraft; a ship designed for warp drives *should* look alien and exotic, not like a boat, or a rocket or an airplane.

This design has that look in abundance; very cool.

Sweet design! Love the change from the conventional while still maintaining a Starfleet feel.

I wonder what a good dual-saucer vessel would look like.... hmmm.

No not ugly! However, it does have a touch of Star Wars about. In any case i like the design of the pylon and the escape pods in it. Good work.

Hope no one ever has to land it on a planet, unless they aim for seawater it's gonna be one heck of a balancing act! :D

I love this, the only problem is i think the secondary hull isnt wide enough. Seems like the lowest decks wouldnt have room for much of anything, the design is nice though.

This is very nice. I think it's the first design I've seen with a non-traditional secondary hull.
