Derelict in the Maelstrom by Drell-7 Derelict in the Maelstrom by Drell-7
While surveying the Baten Kaitos Maelstrom, U.S.S. Pioneer encounters an alien craft drifting without power. In the electromagnetic chaos of the Maelstrom, it is impossible to get reliable sensor readings, or a transporter lock, so a survey team is dispatched in a shuttlecraft for a detailed examination.

would that be a fore-runner to the Constellation Class?

Its an open question. The designer didn't sat--but the lines are suggestive!

Thanks for making this great render of my model Drell-7, and to everyone's great comments about the ship design too! I really do appreciate it. :D

This looks cool. Just like a variant of the Constellation  Class, just without the big saucer.

I have one question....Can the saucer sepperate?

That's a really good question! I think it probably can, by ejecting the dorsal and ventral necks at the Primary Hull line. Anyone have any hard information on this class?

I didn't design the saucer to be able to separate, but like you say, the necks could probably be released. The nacelles could certainly be ejected.

Rich colors and an intimate POV with the Pioneer. The derelict almost has a ghostly feel.

Yeah, I wanted to turn up the mystery with the derelict, so I gave it some edge light and shrouded it in the nebular mist. I think that turned out okay.

Leave it to Drell to give us the "in the trenches" shot of the Pioneer. With Arcass, bless him, I've only seen distant shots? Great shot, my gosh those are big nacelles...those pylons look skinny by comparison. Bah no matter it's warp theory not wind sailing. :)

OUTstanding! I really love the lighting throughout this image, as well as the POV - really dramatic shot.

Thank you, sir! The LW version of the Pioneer comes with a really complex light rig scene for all the self-illumination. I added the key light and the light sources from the nebulosity.
