Pioneer by Drell-7 Pioneer by Drell-7
Foomandoonian's superb pre-TOS Federation starship design. I've learned a lot of modeling tricks from this superb little model. Its hosted over at Foundation3D. I did the planetary rings.

Lightwave 10, and a little compositing in Photoshop. Thanks for looking!

Nice simple, believable TOS design. I'd like to see more views of her.

That is a nice bit of kit - well engineered sir!

Just wonder - why does a ship need four warp drives?

If only - would make sense, or pulling power, range, or durability....

Ah cool, never seen this ship before...great render. Did it come fully textured or did you do some post in Photoshop?

She's fully textured. The lightwave version includes a setup scenes with the spotlights and nav lights rigged!

I think having a shuttlebay where it does would weaken the superstructure but your right its a beautiful little ship. Its available for the pozerites too at F3D.

Ah, is this a predecessor to the Constellation class because I like it. Awesome work!

YAY! There's a Poserversion.

As the puppetman sez: "Stand by for ACTION!"

Wow, that DOES look nice. Especially from this angle (to boldly go where no camera has gone before!). I'm not sure I'd restrict this to "pre-TOS". It looks like it could fit in the first or second season just fine. So is there an OBJ version out there? I think this pic has finally tempted me to play... even if it is one of those wacky "quad nacelle" designs.

Nice! When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a physical model of a 2-nacelled ship, reflected on a table or something. :)

Interesting configuration.

Yeah, I do believe it might have been intended as a precursor to the Constellation class. The proportions and details are a little less chunky.
