Nice! I don't think I've ever seen another render of my ship. I didn't even realise it had been converted to Poser format. :D

Ah! Yes! YOUR ship (it took me a second). A fine piece of work on all levels, if I do say so! Thanks SO, SO much for sharing the effort! It's been a fun model to play with!! :D

Well as i recall you only need two to form a warp field. does having four make it more stable? or did the extra nacelles serve another purpose?
RobCaswell's avatar
Well if you need two, then how does a Scout/Destroyer work?

Eh. It's all made up tech anyway and it seems the "two nacelles necessary" went out the window in 1976, so... why four? Maybe better acceleration? Maybe longer sustained use? I can also go with "it looks cooler" ;)

Personally I'm not a big fan of the four-nacelle designs, but for some reason this one clicks with me.

I've always wondered about the performance of these ships with four nacelles.

Probably the best looking image I've seen of the Pioneer (yes! I can actually SEE, again!) The palette is lyrical!

How's it performing in the infrared?

When it absolutely, positively has to be there yesterday!

Wow, that is one seriously overpowered ship! Nice :).

When you turn the speed dial all the way, it goes to "Warp 11".
