I love the new render of the Enterprise F a lot. I think it looks really, really nice! .......That is except the back portion. I think it now looks just like your standard post Sovereign assault ship back. Nothing stands out about it. It's just kind've boring.

Now I really fell in love with the back portion of this version of the Enterprise-F. I think it looks very unique and makes it look very different from most other Starfleet designs! It's really something I think should be put back into the design. It's something that I would be willing to fight for to be put back in, maybe...

So what do you guys think, which back do you like? I know which one I think looks better!

(BTW amazing job on everything else guys!)

I don't know that there's a huge contradiction there. The F's signature power is that the saucer separates and the tail breasks off to form an attack craft. I think the paintover just shows what it looks like with the attack ship deployed.

The Devs (CapnLogan) did confirm that the aft portion of the secondary hull was going to have a classic shuttlebay.

I'm not sorry to see the 'pincer' go. If the auxiliary craft is implemented, it'll likely come fro elsewhere.

Pretty bad idea.

The pincer is an interesting concept, to be sure. But it looks better... y'know, not on the Enterprise.

I agree. Cryptic needs to remember that this is the Enterprise and shes got to have certain looks to her, like a circloid saucer, not an angled saucer.

From the front view, it looks as if the 'pincers' may still exist on the underside. Perhaps there is where the auxiliary craft will dock, right under the shuttle bay.

Hmm.

The ship looks stylish, but some sort of advanced saucer separation as ship class ability should be mandatory for this ship class in my opinion.

I think they have pretty much confirmed the ship breaks into three parts so it's kindof a hybrid of Multi-Vector Assault and Saucer Separation.

I'm rather glad the fish tail got toned down. Honestly it was the only feature of the F that I really disliked. As for it not looking enough like the J, that's fine by me. We may be constrained to moving toward it by canon considerations, but the J was a horrible, ugly design. We have 4 iterations to get to that point (assuming the timeline doesn't shift before that), so lets... take our time.

I think the back portion of your preferred one looks silly TBH, the lines don't match. Doesn't fit with anything else on it.
