Happy New Year 2020
Slowly returning to normal after the holiday break, and now after a time away from CGI getting my mind back into gear for it. so I took the reimagined Enterprise etc for another render.
I think most fan like the spacedock scene in STTMP, I know I do.
I was asked to provide orthos of Dan Dare’s Eagle shuttle, I have finished a long run of designing Star Trek (images yet to be posted here) now I am thinking of working on the mother ship called the “Spacefort.
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.
For my Re-imagined Constitution Class to finish this project I worked out the maximum amount of shuttles is 8 if the Captain wishes to have a full complement, unless he or she might decide on less.
I used the names of those scientists I find interesting for the other shuttles not otherwise having appeared or mentioned in Star Trek.

Using this older WIP of the hangar and cargo area to help illustrate, 2 Shuttles could be parked for use in the landing bay launch receiving area, in the deck below reached by the turntable / elevator there is room for 4 shuttles to be stored, then on the lower deck, the main cargo area there is space for 2 more shuttles adding to 8 shuttles.
This could be down to what the Captain wants, might decided on having 4 or 6 is more cargo space is what is needed.
