I was looking at the original pic of the E and if they'd just cut a little off of the deflector array's length, where it extends out from the neck, it'd balance quite nicely I think. Rather that than pushing the neck forward. Can you guys do that somehow to see how it'd look?

Here’s a new kit bash version. I reduced the size of the saucer section, to make it more proportioned, added the arboretum and created similar nacelle struts from TMP era for a swept back look and a more defined shuttle bay area. Doesn't look too bad IMO.

So... exactly the opposite of the official pic, then.

Personally I think the problem is that bit of extended space between the dish and the neck, cut that and the saucer works with that design. Balances out if you cut that I'd say.

Which is exactly the opposite of 1701 in TNG/VOY form, which is what that thing in the photos is.

I think you guys are overlooking something major. The dish looks like it could retract into the housing, maybe at idle or impulse? That shortens the hull a bit and balances the look.

I know, I know, "shut up old man."

Huh -- that wouldn't be too bad at all.

dv8pdx, I have good news and bad news. The good news, our mods have made the news. The bad news is that while I got credit for mine, three separate people have taken credit for yours.
