i wouldn't call john eaves designs "random designs"

anyway...those ships are on the web since STO beta or so. Idk the story behind them or why they never made it into the game...possibly financial. After all john eaves is the designer of many many Ships in the movies and series.

They were designed for Perpetual, who burned through one of the largest MMO budgets of its time "developing" STO before anyone realized they didn't actually have anything except fake screenshots and concept art and stopped investing in them.

I dont McCall these designs, but they do look like Asshault Cruiser variants. The ones saucer looks like the boomerang weapon from FF8.

I like John Eaves' work for the most part, but I feel like all of his Starfleet ships are too blocky and armored looking. I think if both designs were smoothed out some, they would have a lot of potential. I'm also not so crazy about the speed holes in the saucer. I've seen that in a few designs, and it always strikes me as unnecessary, and makes the ship look flimsy.

Hmm, the McCall could be used as a base for a much needed Typhoon redesign, considering the current one is a kitbash.

I would love a Fed Escort that looks like the Archer, maybe smoothed out a bit. Just an escort that has a "normal" Trek ship feel to it, with a saucer, engineering hull, and nacelles with outward pylons. The Armitage and Prometheus come close.

I'd also want the Warship Voyager... >_>
