I have been working on a few designs to add to my Reimagined Constitution Class, my final Starship to be completed is called the Drexler class, for now at least, though I would like to have a go at smaller classes like Oberth Class with a TOS spin and service design like cargo designs. 6 classes in all. 01 Constitution Class 02 Reliant Class (a variant of the Miranda Class I am aware they are the same but fan’s canon as called the Refit Constitution, the Enterprise Class ) 03 Miranda Class 04 Loknar Class 05 Hutzel Class 06 Drexler Class Last two named after Gary Hutzel and Doug Drexler I will work on other “pods” in the future, perhaps other designs if the mood takes me.
I decided it was time to add to the fleet and the Miranda and the Reliant variant class giving it my own spin in keeping with my reimagined Constitution class.
I choose the names and registries I like seen above ^ and with the question of deflector I have the centre of the 3 “windows” as a forward deflector and the outer 2 as forward sensors, I never liked the Franz Joseph dangling unit on his Ptolemy Class Transport design. In fact why not just have a deflector on the tug section attached as required might work as well and look imv better.
It has been some time since my last post, I have not been very active modelling or rendering wise. most recent a trip to Spain, while I was away I reread Star Trek Chain of Attack by Gene DeWeese 32nd in the sequence for the TOS Era,
While mapping a series of gravitationalanomalies, the USS Enterprise is suddenly hurled millions of light years through space, into a distant galaxy of scorched and lifeless worlds… into the middle of an endless interstellar war.With no way back home, the crippled starship finds itself under relentless and suicidal attack by both warring fleets! And CaptainKirk must gamble the lives of his crew on his ability to stop a war that has raged for centuries – and ravaged a galaxy…
I decided to have a go at a tribute cover, using my re-imagined USS Enterprise rather than the classic.
I also went back and reworked the aft windows on the teardrop section of the primary hull just below the bridge. instead of 2 windows I gave it 3 windows and added some basic features.
