    Not a reboot

    This is nothing but an idea I had floating around. I don't consider it a reboot or a redesign of any thing. I've done it just for fun. I was influenced by Vector's reimagined enterprise. But only for the back of the engine.
    This is a type 1 warp engine for single engine ships like the Saladin.

    It's got some cool nifty-ness to it! I like the detached panel port and starboard aft. That's Vek's idea, but your design of it is excellent, too. Looks good! Would the port nacelle have a red light on the back rim?

    You're right about the detached panels. I didn't actually even notice them on Vectors ship I thought it was just a shadow thing making them do that. I was really more influenced by the back ball section of his engine. Yeas the other engine would have a red light on the back.

    A few more bits. I borrowed a few parts from my Saladin mesh as placeholders.

    So you're putting the glowy cutout on the bottom of the nacelle? Where will the pylons join the nacelle body?

    that's some sweet detail here.
    But I'm a bit confused.

    In the first post you said it's for one-nacelle ships, but then you say "Yeas the other engine would have a red light on the back." (third post)
    erm? Which other engine, please, if it's only one anyway?

    This engine is based on ships like the Saladin/Hermes class ships. It has one engine and connects below the saucer. The type two engine will have the glowy cutout placed either like the standard warp engines have them or on top. I haven't decided yet.

    The current look of the engine is for single nacelled ship but it be modified for multy nacelled ships. That way one will have a grean light and the other will have a red light.

    Hope that clears things up. If it didn't future pics should clear it up.

    D'oh! Of course! Sorry, I forgot that it was for single-nacelled ships.

    I think that's the first time a guy ever said that to me.
    UPDATE...
    More details added.
    I've started on the pylon that will connect the engine to the Saucer. I've decided not to add windows here since it needs room for all the warp stuff. I might still add a few small windows or portholes closer to the saucer.


    The last two pics are an idea for gimmick I've been tring to avoid but can't stop thinking about. I'm thinking the parts at the back of the engine might move in and out according to the speed it's moving at.
    I think they would be moved out while at low warp or impulse. They move closer as the warp factor moves up.
