As awesome as that one is, I think it may be too close to the latest treks design, which CBS doesn't have the rights too.

I also think that it may be a step in the wrong direction, atleast for the Enterprise, but would be awesome if they added it in as a later tiered ship

I was actually hoping for something in that direction I still think it's well balanced and doesn't resemble it too much. The sleek nacelles makes us think about the enterprise J wich is a good thing IMO cause that's where we'll end up fighting the Guardians of the Spheres

Well the J also had no "neck" so going from the Sovereigns neckless design back to the Constitution is a step backward IMO.

The thing is, as cool and retro as it is, I don't think it is the way they wanted to go...

That being said...

1) Ship does not fit any kind of design lineage between the Enterprise-E and the Enterprise-J...and that is what the contest is asking for: the next step along the path that leads from the Sovereign and the Ent-J.

2) Number of nacelles does not equal power of the ship - the total power that the ship has is determined by the size and number of warp cores it has - the nacelles are not the cores. Your ship in that regard looks overweight - again, needs some rethink.

Anyway, that's just off the top of my head - not something I'd vote for, even if it had a chance of winning. That's my opinion - take it for what it's worth.

It isn't too bad. Not a 100% fan of it. But at least you were able to do something.

Enterprise should be a ship of exploration. Not a ship of kicking the @#! of anything it comes across. Which is what this ship looks like it would do.

Keep in mind, it's a ship being designed when the Federation is at war with 6 different civilizations. The Enterprise is designed to be the flagship of Starfleet.
