This is possibley one of the most unique starship designs i have ever seen. It is completly unlike any Federation Starship i have ever seen, yet, i do like it.

I am guessing, from the design, that this may have MVAM capabilitys?

indeed it does, however its not a 'multi' vector designation more of a 'dual' vector design. thanks for the comment XD :photon: :photon: :photon:

 That has a rather...radical...design change for the warp nacelle's. Do you have a reasoning for that? I assume they are extended for warp travel and retracted for impulse.
 I like the design anyway Tethys...seems slightly...(???)...Xindi-ish? I cannot put my finger on it exactly, but it is a novel design non-the-less!

A most interesting format. Very unique. However, anyone know what sort of impact the nacelle layout could have on generating a stable warp field? We all know ships that have used multiple nacelles, but never in this kind of layout that I can remember.

good points all let me clarify if i may.

BLZBUB: reason i changed the nacelles is i was getting tired of long thin nacelles so i made a set short and stubby >.<

Random Redshirt: i havent really concluded wether or not it would generate a more stable warp field, what i do kno is that the ramscoops cannot be blocked, and during warp flight only the saucer nacelles are deployed.

Titan-A: an emergency jump takes about as long as it takes Intrepid class ships to gyrate their nacelles and enter warp, not as long as you might think. and its a quick ship, one of the quickest, both impulse and warp.

hope this answers some q's if you wanna kno anything more just ask :P
