Another shot with the Ascension class. I must say, i like this design. Its a good 25th Century ship.

The Ascension class is a 1400 m Federation Starfleet starship in service during the early 25th century.
It had a crew capacity of 2,000 beings and was built with a mix of Federation and Romulan technology.

The USS Phoenix (NCX-101138) was an Ascension-class Federation dreadnought in the 2420s. It was commanded by Captain Bryce D. Avari.
In 2422, Captain Avari and the crew of the Phoenix attempted to rescue a diplomatic envoy on Katrassii Prime. Upon arrival in the Neutral Zone, the rescue team was unexpectedly ambushed by Romulan Commander Telek in a lure to murder Avari and gain information about Project Labyrinth.

I think the Ascension is open source. Just give credits to its design and model maker Mark Kingsnorth.

Awesome thanks is it a battleship or a science ship?

In the spirit of the Federation, i would say a bit of both. From size the ship could be classified as Dreadnought, but like the Galaxy class it has science labs and lot of non military stuff like shopping malls, a bowling alley and such.

Ah, that makes sense.

What ever happened to Star Trek: Phoenix, Euderion? I only ever saw the first episode, it had some awesome potential.

From what i heard, the founder of ST: Phoenix went trough a case of cancer, so the production was on ice since then.
Hes better now and i heard rumor they want try something new, maybe outside the Star Trek Universe due to the stricter copyright politics CBS/Paramount show in the last years.

Wow, well glad to hear he is ok. I look forward to whatever they do, they are a great group of people. It is sad though that they may not continue in Trek but thats CBS's fault.

Larger than Life! Now that's a big one! However, a ship like this obviously has problems with manoeuvring, and it probably takes a long time for it to turn around... In combat situation, that can be deadly, smaller ships can easily surround it, and take it apart... Traveling to long distance with it is not safe, unless it has support from the fleet...

Im sure, a ship of this size carries alot of smaller fighters with it to defend against smaller aggressors.

That is efficient. What type, and what fighter class are they?

Possible a mix of them:

Interesting, since of course space craft can be almost any shape in theory, but for Starfleet there is a specific aesthetic.  This conveys a sense of sleek power held in the ready.  It doesn't look like a warship, the way Klingon, Romulan and Jem'hadar vessels do, yet seems very able to take care of itself in a fight.  More, it looks as if it were intended for lots of other, non-military purposes.  The overall look is that of a warship built by a people who do not see themselves as warriors.

Looking at that, I kind of wonder what Kirk would've done with a Starship Enterprise that was 1400 meters long! :O

Now that is one sweet ship that is truly worthy of Star Trek.  I love it!
