More fun with Dave Metlesits' [link] nifty Romulan War era ships (per the Starfleet Museum [link]). Background by Hameed [link] . OBJ conversions by Wmwconnors.


DAZ Studio render.

Makes me wonder how their interiors look like. Are they supposed to be like TOS? Only more primitive?

Boggles my mind. The ship looks the part but when you consider the other details...Well, shit. :lol:

Actually the floor plan is the place they blew it. They could have done it REALLY right and made the deck perpendicular to the thrust vector, but they went with the Trek artificial gravity layout, instead.

So close... yet so far.

Actually, I stand corrected! The designs are better than I thought. They ARE using a perpendicular deck arrangement - WOO*HOO!!!!!! :dance:

I'm so ashamed of myself ...

I love this pic, but I can't help looking at those nacelles and seeing markers with removable plastic caps! Especially when the one in the background looks like the caps have been removed :D.

Revolution.

You know what, I never really gelled with these ships. Masao Okazaki seemed to be better at designing space stations than ships. :shrug:

But mate, you render them COOL!!! :D :woohoo:

I like 'em - a lot! They actually feel a) like spacecraft, and b) from a different time. I'm happy to travel back in time and lose the "saucer and nacelles" look. It makes sense!

Ooh, need nacelles. No nacelles then no warp drive, no warp drive and it's the 28th Century before we get to the battle. :ashamed:

Your renders are warming me up to them. They don't look design to be battleships though, like I say it's more like they've been press-ganged into war service. Which makes sense to me, never like the idea that we got out looking for a fight, we're just having fun exploring and making friends with Vulcans, Andorians, Telarites, Caitains, and then the Rommie's just don't wanna play friendly like. :(

Well they gots turrets 'n stuff. I suspect they fire blowy-uppy things.... and not just flags on poles that say, "Hey Alien Dudes! Wanna come out n' play?"

Maybe it's a guy-thing and you're just reacting poorly to a flotilla of space penises? ;p
