Looks bland and just as low detailed as I thought it would be; but those ugly pylon extension things are gone at least.

This is probably my least favorite wallpaper in that gallery(just my opinion of course).

I second that.
While the texture looks bland, the model looks very good, except maybe for that deflector.
While I like these wallpaper, they disappoint me, they are just a ship render with a random background. Give us a big in-game beauty shot!
At least the Lcars frame is gone, I like it on the website, but not on wallpapers.

BTW: Where are the name and registry?

lol echoing the fact that this is clearly a defiant class, not vigilant...we demand retribution :P

edit: im indifferent about the lcars border...i kinda liked it...but it looks sharp without it too...like the background overall

@loyaltrekie...are you always this negative about stuff?

Low Detailed? :confused:

How do you figure? I can see the fine details pretty clearly. Including some banding on the metal.
It's very smooth and lacks the "bits" of the original defiant class.

And it's unnaturally lit. But that's about it.
Otherwise it's very detailed.

It's not 'very' detailed by any measure except 1999 graphics, and even by that standard it is haphazard with what looks like a misaligned texture. What it is is passable for a mid-level LOD model. Even Bridge Commander's Defiant is better than this one, and neither compare at all to the fan made Defiants for Bridge Commander.

Soooo much better now that the spikes are gone.....they looked ridiculous.



I see no problem with lack of detail. Keep in mind, this ship is probably covered with ablative armor, so you don't see all the details you would see on other ships....plus it's a lot smaller than most, if you zoomed in to the same scale on a Sovereign or a Galaxy, you'd probably see the same level of detail.


Some people have nothing better to do that complain.
I'm just glad to see something Defiant based at last.
