In the Dominion War the Centaur class was used as a fast guerilla unit. She can attack the enemy before he know what hit them and then return to federation space, maybe luring the enemy to a bigger starfleet force.

The Centaur was conceived as a vessel that could be constructed by using pre-made stock components that were also utilized in building the older Excelsior-class starships, meaning this ship could be made without the same amount of research and development investment a newer design would entail. As such, many of these vessels were fielded in battle during the Dominion War, as the ships and their components were common enough to be easily rebuilt and replaced.

Thank you!
If you like the CGI scenes, you better watch Deep Space Nine. The Voyagers CGI's wasnt that good.

Oh, and how did you do the lights on the main body, separate material, overlayed surface, or just simply a texture?  (Sorry, I've worked CAD for like 8 yrs, but I'm still really green in the artistic side of it)

Which lights do you mean? The engines, deflector and nav-lights has everyone a own light source. Windows is just textures.

Ah thanks. Reason being is that I thought you might have set a slight emission/light source for the windows via texture.

also, did you add the phasers before or after?

Phaser are made in the 3d program. Its a long tube with two glowing effects on it.
Only post work i did in this image is the explosion effect on the Jem'Hadar Fighter. All other things done in 3d.

Sweet!  Was the tube hi-res or just like 16 faces and smooth shading?

Was just a low thing. The Tube itself is not important. The glow effects makes the effect.

  Oh as for the enemy ship.  I an see it will have his hands full.  From the angle of the atack I can Say.  That the captain has a assassin mentality.  And that means the enemy is screwed.

   OOOOOh.  This is so geourgos.  It so real.  This is the best I have seen because the art is slight diferent from the norm.  It so real.  It is like seeing it from the angle with the sun at a angel of him.  This is beyond words.  The light play is lovely.  This is the BOMB.
