"Walk softly and carry a big Phaser spinal lance..."

In retrospect, the 2380s of the 24th century meant the greatest advance in fleet-wide rearmament of Starfleet. The initial impuls of the Battle of Wolf 359 and the Dominion War let starfleet recognize that they neglected the military development in the previous decades. The Defiant class, a direct response to the Borg threat, was the ultimate symbol of what Starfleet is capable if you poke the bear once too often. Showing her strenght in countless battles during the Dominion War, soon the ship design got lots of different sister classes such as the Hornet, Valiant or Rapier classes.
Older ships, such as the Galaxy class were upgraded with a very powerful belly mounted phaser lance weapon and quantum torpedo launcher.

Another impressive one. The Defiant (and class) is my favorite, but who could not be impressed by the majesty of the Galaxy-class.

Was never a big fan of the Galaxy X, didn't like the third nacelle tbh. But the other additions were always good imo.

They just needed some changes to show the different versions of the Galaxy class in All good thing... Im sure, they just put up a box with spare parts and glued them together. :-)
The badass phaser lance made a very big impression on me, when i first saw the episode. It was a pure Wow moment.

Yeah I suspected as much. Still a lot of fans love the design. Never a fan of odd number nacelle ships. But that's just personal preference.
Yes the lance was an awesome addition as a almost teenager I still remember seeing it for the first time.

For me, it was the way the pylon and secondary hull expansion looked, more than there being a third nacelle (personally my preference is sets of or divisible by 2). the phaser lance was definitely cool

That's a lot of fire power for one fleet. Hate to be on the receiving end.

WOW...just stumbled upon your art and just...WOW. Love it! I'm more of a Star Wars fan (please don't stone me) but I love sci-fi art above all, and this, as well as your gallery, was a joy to behold. :-)

Not a problem with Star Wars. Most of my works has to do with Star Trek and Mass Effect, but i like SciFi in general. I have a Star Wars folder in my gallery too if you want to risk a look. :-)
