100% Agreed.
A larger and wider, round or even elliptical shaped saucer would definately help making the ship look better. The designer wanted it to look muscular and bulky, i'm fine with that.
But the fine egg shaped saucer just doesn't fit to that look IMO. What that ship needs is a saucer that looks more like the rest of the ship, but no fine and fragile looking and way too light looking saucer like they made for the Avenger.

Just some examples of saucer sections already in the game that would perfectly fit to the Avenger:
Polaris, Sol, Luna, Cochrane, Bellerophon, Zephyr, Akira. Heck, even the Exeter Saucer would fit better to the rest of the ship than that tiny thing they put on top of the Avenger.
EDIT:
I belive Cryptic evn could re-use the Noble and even the imperial Saucer for the Avenger and it would still be improvement.




All it needs are at least SOME options, for gods sake.


I have the ship myself but seriously i can't stand her looks. First i thought i just need to accustom myself to it, but it just don't work. Which is a shame, Cryptic obviouls only creates ships for people not caring about the looks, only for their stats. So i am afraid the next one will exactly look like a dungheap, and most ppl would still buy AND fly it withouth having any problem with it.

It's a shame that the new Klingon ship looks way better than that hideousnes Cryptic designed for starfleet.

I think the Avenger looks okay apart from the Engineering Hull aspect of it, which looks too bulky and too god damned ugly for a Federation ship. Saucer looks fine to me.

The Avenger needs all of those weird shapes turned into more normal Star Trek ones... The egg saucer should become a true oval saucer (Galaxy turned 90 degrees, and made smaller and thicker), and the engineering hull looks like a poo painted white and fitted with a really strange, possibly alien, deflector array... It needs to become a more normal semi-cylindrical one without the ugly "tail" on it, and should get a far less terrible (And abnormal)-looking deflector dish...
These are the unoriginal voyages of the starship Aether. Its continuing mission: to explore boring new worlds, seek out Dilithium and Reputation, to boldly go where everyone has gone before.

No, no competition. Not after that travesty they called a "competition", not to mention what happened afterwards.
I agree that the avenger is ugly. It's a seriously ugly ship, ugly to the point where I just can't use it. I recall reading somewhere that cryptic will never again use a fan designed ship.
There was a sig here, but I gave up. Thanks {REDACTED}

Compared to the Chimera, it's 'nice'. The Chimera is the one I have trouble with...

And as I keep pointing out, the major source of contention was the giveaway of the name "ENTERPRISE". There would have been much less blow back if it was "Design the next C-store ship" rather than "Design the next ENTERPRISE Contest".

The Avenger looks like that hard nosed drill sergeant in ship form, aka badass.

Btw. please not another design competition. The result of the Enterprise design contest is still causing me stomach ache.
