Lifeboats, get your lifeboats here! Well, compared to every other ship I’ve done the amount of lifeboats here is overwhelming!!! I’m about 1/4th done....

I’ve also decided that the “pod” is an auxiliary craft of some sort. And it’s nick name is “the Blade”

Monster nacelles on The Blade.

All those lifeboats.... Are they saying something about the ship's reliability?


Lifeboats: A really optimistic idea. If your ship is not threatening to blow up, is on fire, or is radiating like mad, if stranded in, space were the best place to be? A lifeboat, or the disabled ship? Starships do not sink in the space.

We have seen that life support on these things is centuries reliable. So the engines break down. Lifeboats or the comfortable ship? Plus you can bang on those engines with high tech monkey wrenches. You might fix them. Can't do that from a lifeboat.

Lifeboats are for when the ship is no longer safe to be on, or you have a planet handy to decamp too.

And if she’s like the TOS Intrepid being all Vulcan, the Blade Runner should be all Replicants! I mean aren’t they designed to be able to better handle the riggers of space?

I also decided the Registry, Name and Shuttle bay signage were too small and decided to update them to a size that was readable in the next quadrant!

score!
that melbourne type came out looking very awesome,
the smaller-warp-pod looks just fantastic

the delta-plinth is a nice touch for the display stand.
the 'digital' aztecing pattern is a fun variant, and I wonder how it would go with Nemesis-era darker style colorpalette though in that pattern for ST:O stuff (I blaze around in an Oberth or a Nebula hehe) :D

That is one awesome fleet. Great work on these beauties.
I hope one day to have a fleet like this in 2500.
