*size comparisons against the Norway*

Oh man, I'd forgotten we didn't have the Norway. But yeah, I'm a fan of that scale tbh, although the 'obscenely huge' version is amusing enough.

it is not to big in game, its not a tiny ship. common components compared with the sovereign, like the life boats, give it a bout a size of 356 M. that makes it about as wide as the akira

A lot of the ships from "First Contact" seem problematic size wise, as mentioned in this article.

To be honest, the size doesn't even bother me as much as the impulse engine placement and the lack of floodlights on the name/registry.

I mean, how is it even possible to put the impulse engines there? The deflector pylon struts are a couple meters thick at the very most, and yet we see most MSDs showing impulse generators to be multiple decks tall..Even on smaller ships like the Nova, the impulse generators are 2 decks tall.

Even on an Intrepid, which is the only canon ship I can think of with the impulse generators on the nacelle struts, are on really thick nacelle struts and even then the impulse generators are housed in "bulges" on the struts..

On top of that, crew passages and deflector power/control are all going through the struts too. Way too busy IMO.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

Aye. That and 'impulse engines' are- as per the nebula stuff, not rocket boosters. They're exhaust. As long as your struts are sealed from space (and being space, they'd have to be), idk that there'd be a problem running your exhaust over them- although given the placement of the Steamrunner deflector, one would think that there could be a 'center rear saucer' placed engine strip to take advantage of that placement.

How does this look (a simple edit in photoshop)


Makes such a difference to the model.
