The only issue I had with it, is that I think it needed to be wider. But that's just personal preference.
I think that if the 'thickness' of the hammer head was knocked down by about half, it wouldn't look as odd, even for as narrow as it is. To me, the fact that the ship gets *thicker* as it gets to the front is 'off'. Even though the Vor'Kang has a thick front at the middle, the fact that the hammerhead narrows out counteracts that. The Bortas needs a little rhinoplasty and it'd look great.
Why do fans create better ships than the professionals?
because in those fan's eyes, their creations ARE better than the professionals. in their opinions, the professional designs either look bad, horrible, off, ugly, whatever you want to call it... so they create their own
but overall, not everyone will like the design of a specific thing, that's to be expected
you don't like the current one, so the fanmade ones look better to you. and it's okay
