I know it has been said before but the Avenger is ugly and I don't buy the excuse that it was an attempt to make it look like more of a 'gunship' and in all seriousness in terms of aesthetics it is ugly pile with the Regent and Venture. Just because it is supposed to look like a gunship doesn't mean the lines have to be sacrificed, look at the warship Voyager from the episode 'Living Witness' which was turned into a gunboat. Voyager was essentially bristling with weapons and still managed to keep much of its 'elegant' design intact. While I do not mind the saucer section and think that the nacelles are awesome, while the primary hull(including the main offender which is the deflector), pylons and neck need redesign. Looking at it from an angle, one can plainly see that it looks like it has just been piece together because there is no flow to the look and don't compliment each other in style. The pylons, the hull and the neck of the ship clash in terms flow, because of the neck it looks like the hull and pylons are just begging to be swept back and thus wants to go against the 'gunship' look that the designer was going for.

Since i am a (ratehr less) proud owner of a Avenger, i have come to the conclusion, that this ship needs a more wide Saucer, additionally to its egg shaped one.
This would relocate the ships mass from the deflector/Hull area to the upper neck, which would make the ship look less clumsy but keep its distinct Hot Rod look.


I think a wider array of possible shapes should be added to all new Starfleet designs, like the Odyssey or Regent.
Similar to the Heavy Cruiser which also has very different looking Saucers, Cryptic could add some wide or otherwise shaped saucers, which would give more options.

A true Negh'Var Battlecruiser with LTC tac abilities would indeed be a nice addition. And I still want a targ handling kit for ground combat

I actually like it - was indifferent about it at first, but swapped the nacelle pylons to the fleet variant and rather like the way it looks.

It actually reminds of of the Warship Voyager seen in 'Living Witness'.

A question remains: Why do you people just buy that thing anyway despite it being so horrible?

Then this was obviously not adressed at you :p

I mean something like "Oh the Avenger is stupid, just a cash grab, it totally contradicts Star Trek lore... okay, I bought it, and..."

Some people have more money than sense... Like that guy who spent over $1000 per month on STO.
