View Full Version : Dangerman class
April 7th, 2003, 09:01 AM
here are the first views of the saucer section.
I'm still designing the rest of the ship on paper :D
The deflector dish wil be on the secondary hull, in the butt there will be a large shuttle bay. I have no idea about the lay-out of the shuttle bay, I don't want it to open up like on the big E. I'm thinking on making the door an extended launch platform when it's opened. The nacelle supports will be ambassador-ish. The saucer is basically the same as the RAmmstein class (still have it on my hard drive) But I'm gonna give this one windows with rounded edges and some more pannels & hatches.
I made this one while I was bored:

Not much to comment on yet. It all depends on the secondary hull.
By the way, you spelled "development" wrong on your emblem.

Interesting impulse drive section. Very simple in it's shape.

Insteresting secondary hull shape. What are those three rings for the surround the secondary hull?

continuing work on the little shipp (yes it's got a small shuttle bay, but it only needs to fit 1 shuttle ^^

Woah! The nacelle supports go through the dish?!?! That is very funky. Unless the plasma conduit gets something important by going through the primary hull, having them do so would just take up lots of valuable space, I'd think.
You might also consider making the neck a bit thicker, perhaps by making the sidew bow out a bit.

The supports don't go through the dish, I just decided to give her a double neck ^^
I'm thinking of making the nacelle supports similar to the one on the ambassador/excelsior class.

Is she going to be armed with torpedoes and if so will they be fired from the saucer or the neck, a la Enterprise refit?

I'm thinking of putting 1 torpedo launcher beneath the deflector dish :o !

Doesn't look like a lot of room under there. Would the launcher be sort of a bolt on deal? Would it extend from the bottom of the hull?

What's the point of making a double neck? That would increase surface area but decrease interior space. That's okay if you're building a hotel and want to increase the number of windows, but on a starship?

It's just some artistic freedom ;)

That's the best reason of all!
