Starboard is right, not port.
I do like the design, though.

So many people are going for Enterprise-J like designs. I wanted to do something completely different that while it might not look like the Enterprise's you know and love, it could potentially and hopefully grow on you (if I won, which... I likely won't).
As I said, the fact that you're not following the design lineage set by the previous 1701s is not and bad thing. Aside from the Defiant, I think too many of the hero ships have had upswept pylons and nacelles.

As for the Enterprise-J - I didn't particularly care for the design, and wouldn't be upset if the power that be decided that it never really existed, except in an alternate, now defunct, timeline.

Well I've gotta do a perspective shot. It honestly looks 100x better in perspective. The "small" nacelles in the port and aft views really come to life since they're not just small circles.

Look at that Starboard view. The nacelles are technically huge and they look better in it. When I increase the size of 'em in the port view which made port look better they looked WAY TOO huge in the Starboard view.

Basically with perspective it really evens out. Since you can see the sides from any angle as well as the front (which is how the magic of realistic perspective works) it just looks much better. That's my only gripe about my own work.


Actually it was the toughest task of all... since I didn't do it in 3d (Next time I must!) making it look the consistent and good at all angles. I did take a bit away from the port view to make the starboard view better.




Anyways even if it's not your favorite ship in the world vote anyways. Vote vote vote!

I want to be one of the top 24 or so. Then I can win a freakin' $2.50 cent prize of the game (which they seem to value at $20).
Oh, and that poster.

But yet, I still like it. Don't let this thread fall!

Anyways is there a way to tell how many votes you have or your rating?

I threw you a vote. I personally like the strut and how it arcs through the ship like that. I'm not a big fan of double hull designs, but good work.

Thanks!

Thanks to everyone else who voted for me. I fear I won't be able to get enough votes though. There's only so many days left.

I voted for yours and Krent's designs so far.

Funny, I saw at least two entries (if they're not jokes by the Cryptic team) that are little more than the Enterprise-E and the JJ Abrams version of the old 1701. :/ In fact, there are apparently quite a few entries by people who are simply copied designs from other works, including the Vigilant-class escort from this very game. I hope Cryptic is doing their homework on this!
