    Rapier-class Ship (Trek)

    UPDATE!

    This will now be a continuation of my thread over in the 2D section. I'm to the point where I enjoy 3D modeling more than 2D drawing so I think I'll be pressing on with this project in 3D aside from the occasional update to deck plans and what not.

    Very smooth blending on the primary hull, very nice. You got any wireframes?

    What's it's purpose? A re-imagined Defiant Pathfinder-Class? A science ship? A transport? A Freighter?

    Well, it's not a re-imagined anything. Think very modular PT boat. By modular I mean: "Hey the impulse deck needs to be removed for maintenance," then, "Okay...time for an engine swap." Thirty minutes later a new impulse deck is installed, inspected and ops checked. Ship is 100% FMC.

    It's a good idea, a bit too small, but a good start. Since it's such a small ship it seams to me that it doesn't make sense to copy the style of much bigger ships. I would suggest something similar like the previous post: to go with modular.
    I that spirit I'd like to suggest to you to look a lite at the USS Diligent, there is also a smaller variant of it, but I forgot it's name.

    Thats a good start.

    Very small indeed. About 3 habitable decks I'd day?

    It looks a little bit like the Nova-class at the size of the Oberth. Small ship, but nice idea.

    The idea behind the layout is to see how small I could get a ship and still maintain the classic saucer/engineering hull/nacelles design. That being said, the main hull is staying as is. I'm determined to make this work and come hell or high water I will one way or another.

    Bmused, you're spot on about this thing having three habitable decks. Deck 1 will have the bridge/command deck and probably a mess hall/observation lounge behind it. Deck 2 will have crew quarters, recreation area(s), sickbay and engineering among most major systems. Deck 3 will be the deflector/long range sensor hardware and the cargo bay. An interesting thing to note is my idea for the warp core.

    Looking forward to seeing what you have planned.
    I may just make an MSD for it, if I realy like it.
