And this is the good looking Hidden Frontier Mark 4:


The Galaxy IV-class dreadnaught is a modification of the Galaxy III-class dreadnaught, which itself is a heavily-modified Galaxy-class explorer.
The Galaxy IV design has a number of design differences from its Galaxy-class forerunner, including:
  • A detachable phaser canon mounted on the underside of the saucer section.
  • A larger impulse engine mounted on the dorsal of the "neck" of the engineering hull.
  • Torpedo launchers atop the saucer section, in proximity to the bridge.
The Galaxy IV differs substantially from its Galaxy III-class predecessor as well. Prominent changes include:
  • The Galaxy III's third warp nacelle is replaced with a large wedge-shaped sensor module, akin to those mounted on some Nebula-class starships.
  • Substantial modifications are made to the power and propulsion systems to compensate for the loss of the third nacelle.
  • The torpedo launchers are moved further apart on the saucer section, addressing concerns that a "lucky hit" could cause substantial damage to the bridge.
In 2384, the USS Excelsior became the first Galaxy III-class starship to undergo this refit at Earth Station McKinley. It was intended to prepare the Excelsior for her participation in Operation Beta Shield. (Star Trek: Operation Beta Shield)
sorry, thats just stupid looking

I could get behind it if the third nacelle was lost and the fins...

The Galaxy IV looks pretty bad a**!! I don't like the Galaxy III. The third nacelle makes me want to

The Nebula Class style sensor module looks much better.

I have to say, the original unaltered design still works best.

I prefer the original Galaxy-class design. It all flows together well (although Roddenberry apparently had the nacelles slightly shortened from the original design by Andrew Probert).

It's not a design, however, that holds up well to a lot of kitbashing, (with the possible exception being the Nebula-class), IMO.
