Running on steam by thefirstfleet Running on steam by thefirstfleet
Presenting my Steamrunner class model I did for a project. I had to take a few liberties due to the lack of good quality reference material.



Model by me

Very neat take on the Steamrunner design. Used these to great effect in the Armada games.

If you're looking for more reference material, I highly suggest looking on www.meshweaver.com/portfolio/E… . These are CGI models officially commissioned by CBS for the Eaglemoss Starships Collection.

Oh, I think I saw one of these, the one used on the Eaglemoss box art. So these guys did it! Amazing!

The Steamrunner is 100% one of my favorite starships in Trek! Well done

She is a more function over form ship ain't she?

What? NO, I would never.......ok yes teh steamrunner ain't  a good looking ship but she was built for a purpose. Granted I am having a hard time remembering said purpose but still.

I like that you got the round thing on top of the secondary hull right. That's wrong even on licensed blueprints and models.
Reply
:iconthefirstfleet:
thefirstfleet Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2017
Yeah, because on the original thing, it was just a texture which went off-centre (not that anyone saw it in the movie, mind you). Something felt wrong in me putting it off-centre, so I did it nice an symmetrical :D

Nicely done rendition of an under appreciated design. The Steamrunner is one of the most unique designs from the Trekverse. I think there's a general prejudice on Trek starship designs that have their warp nacelles slung under the saucer/fuselage.

You tellin' me, my own ship has underslung nacelles :D

Even though space is weightless, I think the psychology of most people is that see things slung under something it suggests slowness and not being sleek.

Pretty cool.
Useless fact: She was supposed to be designated a STREAMRUNNER class but someone goofed and dropped the R

I actually like the concept version with the pod above the hull instead of below.

I like it, although I think they thought it looks too much like the Akira, so they modified it to look more distinct.

Neat little ship! In Star Trek Armada II, I call 'em "heavy hitters"; those artillery-grade photon torpedoes pack a nasty punch!

No a HUGE fan of Steamrunners...Howeve, a good Sabre  or  Norway or Baton Rouge.  Having said that, a nice take on this one!

To be honest, I think this ship looks as ugly as a monkey's backside. But I still like it :D
