It's a little ordinary - but then there have been some dud designs already in Trek. It's not my favourite, but not the worst.

Many of these ships seem to be designed from the top plan view. That's fine an okay but it should be where it ends. The other views need as much attention and then there should be an ISOMETRIC view to attempt to capture a parralel perspective which tells you alot about the design.

Anyone ever notice the wrecked secondary hull of a Constitution Class at Wolf 359?
