I love your artistic prowess, very very nice blueprints and descriptions.
On the other hand, for the 25th Century, it is far far too large for Starfleet to contemplate building. It is a mobile station designed for exploring other galaxies, so I imagine its more suited for 27th Century, hehehe. Really love the detail you've put into it though
But as the next Enterprise, it just doesn't feel it
Understandable, and thanks for the positive comment. Not getting much of that.
I know its large, which is one of the reasons I included a bit about the primary hull of the ship being grown and not built.
didn't know people would be so against a little creative writing, which is all it would take to explain what happened to the F...
Well, the Enterprise-E is still in service. The whole point of this contest is so the E can be decommissioned and have the F take it's place. So unless the F collides with the drydock and falls into Mars' atmosphere on it's maiden voyage, I don't think they'll be skipping straight to the G.
Oh I wasn't making a vague suggestion. I was all but flat out saying that I thought that you'd ripped it off from someone else. That sort of thing happens every single day.
However, after doing an extensive internet search and having found nothing even remotely resembling your design I will say that I believe that you actually created that design yourself. I still do not know why it seems familiar to me.
Excellent work, by the way. I certainly do not have the artistic skills to turn out work of that quality.
Don't really like the design. I like the detail you've gone into it and you've clearly put a lot of work into the design...but i feel you've tried to put to much into one ship, this is a massive jump from standard ship design.
I dont think it would be the next Enterprise but its a good ship design regardless...just not for this time period and this type of ship.
