Just a bit of art to round out my weekend. USS Pioneer model by Foomandoonian, with Poser conversion by Mattymanx, via www.foundation3d.com. Shuttlecraft by XCalPro. Background by FrostBo. DAZ Studio render.
Well if you need two, then how does a Scout/Destroyer work?
Eh. It's all made up tech anyway and it seems the "two nacelles necessary" went out the window in 1976, so... why four? Maybe better acceleration? Maybe longer sustained use? I can also go with "it looks cooler"
Personally I'm not a big fan of the four-nacelle designs, but for some reason this one clicks with me.
