T5 Sovereign: Very very very polygonal, and the saucer section is far too thick around the edge.
I completely forgot about that. How foolish of me.

The Tier-1 Centaur model has windows on the engines; there's no way that can look into anything other than the exhaust ducting or impulse reactors. There are also phasers blasts coming from nowhere, between the impulse engines.

Nova. The forward torpedoes are suppose to be on the tip of the nose on either side of the sensor array. There are notches there already for them on Cryptic's model. But they stuck the torpedoes down below the primary hull and above the deflector dish where the Intrepid has them.

Horizon shoots its torpedoes down.

i dont care about how many rows of windows on this ship or that, but i thought this might be a good place to complain about the heavy cruiser i got the other day. its ugly. i dont want it. the engines look winmpy and i dont want a stargazer. let me keep the enterprise like ship, but with more crew slots and the the other sufff. i dont want that ugly hunk of ****. or give me some options to make it look a little less gay. thanks.

seriously. i hate the way the heavy cruiser looks.

I made a mistake before. The Vanguard pylons are fine. Its the Avenger pylons that are lob-sided.

For details/references on the Galaxy:

The strip that comes down the center of the rear hull is about twice as tall as it should be; also, the rear torpedo launcher is missing in STO.

The nacelle pylons attach underneath the tail, whereas they should blend smoothly into the tail.
http://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars...er-sheet-6.jpg

The saucer is WAY too thick at the edge; it's supposed to come to more of a point.
The saucer's profile from the side is not supposed to be symmetrical from top to bottom; the 'bulge' underneath the saucer is suppoed to be smaller underneath than on top.
The 'neck' actually extends up further than the saucer in STO; it's almost as though the saucer needs to be lifted up to be aligned properly.
The escape pods are NOT supposed to be arranged in a single ring around the outside of the saucer.
The saucer's upper and lower phaser strips are NOT supposed to go all the way around; the upper strip is supposed to be interrupted by Shuttle Bay 1, and the lower strip is supposed to be interrupted by the 'neck'; these five points can be seen in the pics referenced below:

http://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars...er-sheet-4.jpg
http://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars...er-sheet-3.jpg

The torpedo launcher in the neck is completely missing; torps seem to launch from beside the deflector dish in the STO model.
http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/me...o_launcher.jpg

Then there's the simple fact that the texturing is WAY off. All in all, there's so much that needs to be changed, it might be better to just start over in regards to the Galaxy class.

I realize I'm being picky, but this thread is all about the details.

Edit: The Centaur model has escape pods on the tops of the two impulse engines...not really sure how an escape pod would fit in there, lol.

Incorrect lower hull on the Constitution refit. Shuttle bay doors are the dome shaped doors from the TOS Constitution, and should be more cone shaped as shown on the refit vessels from the movies.
