    Right to it then. Earlier while engaged in a playing of Star Trek Online, an idea was formed. An idea of how the BOP would have looked if it were refit for TMP.

    So I started to think and this is what I came up with.
    My modifications are in red.

    Basically, a Bird of Prey with subtle fins. Also, as I might add, the blueprints, you can see how there is a beveled edge to the hull. My design would smooth this bevel to allow for a more streamlined appearance.

    This is just some typical late night musings and ramblings, however, please feel free to add some insight and comment.

    Cheers

    Here is some further material to supplement my idea.
    I have made my adjustments in red once again.

    Compare this to the original plans;

    You can see that I eliminated some edges and smoothed over some bevels to give it a slick, clean look.

    Cheers,

    Figured I would reply on this, since it seems my thread has been made redundant by this excellent design

    Yes, I am late to the party on this.

    The designs look great!

    If I may offer some suggestions... make the nacelles rectangular shaped similar to the nacelles of the new Enterprise. Add some "armor plating" similar to the Klingon ships in TMP. Maybe add some sharper angles too?

    Otherwise it look awesome!
