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

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?

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!

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