sorry but I echo the sentiment

Quote from memory alpha "Enterprise-J "as a multi-generational vessel, that had large parks, entertainment zones, and entire universities on board. The ship is so large that turbolifts would be replaced with site to site transporters. [It] had one deflector, recognizably descended from the NX. I opted for spindly nacelle struts because I felt it suggested a technology beyond what we were familiar with. They are beyond transwarp. They can fold space, and they are exploring other galaxies besides the Milky Way."

Assume that in the Enterprise J time, our galaxy must be at peace to allow us to design a ship of this calibar to explore other galaxies. With that being said, the Enterprise F should be a step in the current direction. A ship capable to lead a fleet into battle. It should not have any characteristics of older class ships no matter how nostalgic you feel it is. I would think along the lines a battle cruiser type soverign. Something built to fight. It is not an escort with quick spike damage, nor is it a support ship, but one that holds it's own and makes the enemy fear it getting closer.

Look at the Scimitar, it was massive compared to the Enterprise-E. How many Enterprise E's do you think it would take to fight that monster and win?

If I had to take a wild guess: Tourangeau will win again (his design here: http://www.startrekonline.com/enterp...P%20Tourangeau). Yeah, people have gone "eww" at the hammerhead look, but I kinda like it. Sorta keeps in the theme, and has an interesting look to it at the same time. He designed the Luna, and that's become a semi-popular design, so I figure he's got a good shot at it.

I don't believe the Luna is semi popular because of it's aesthetic appeal. It is popular because the game mechanics the Dev's put in it are very good. An ugly ship could be given great game mechannics and be popular because it wins.

I think the ship is a bit too gaudy to be honest. Actually the design would be OK, except I don't like the double hulls/deflectors at all. A single, wider hull would be better.

Have you seen some of the other entries?

I think that it's the thought that counts anyway. Even if the submission is crude, at least if it gives a sense of what the individual is going for, that can then be refined into an actual ship.

I actually don't mind that one either, maybe a bit too out there for Starfleet designs though...
