If this is addressed to me (you didn't say), then yes, I know it was a joke; I was joking too, although I do have a passing curiosity whether the shape would actually not capsize if it were immersed.
This is one of the limitations of written messages; the nuance of voice tone and body language are lost. Not to worry.
To the question of the source of the Reliant picture, some years ago there was a web site called 'You Can't Do That On Star Trek', which hosted many photoshopped pics from Trek, usually funny, and I collected many of them. This higher resolution pic of the Reliant was kindly given to me by its creator (I'm sorry to say I don't now have a record of his name, or I would give him his due recognition). I have several other hi-res pics that various artists gave me; I may be the only one left who has them. I also have many lower res pics from the collection.
Regrettably the 'You Can't' web site came to a sudden end when its administrator stopped administrating due to busyness, and no new pics were posted, and that little community of Trek artists scattered to the winds.
