Yet another Galaxy class update by thefirstfleet Yet another Galaxy class update by thefirstfleet
Guys, we all know I can't do ultimate justice to the Galaxy class. With all those curves, basically without a straight line, building the darn thing as good as it is was a big challenge for me. However, I've been improving it ever since I finished the first version of it.

With the current updates, I've added:
- the red pinstripe lines on the neck and around the phaser strips
- an updated deflector dish
- the docking (?) ports under the nacelles
- correct curvature of the pylons
- minor texture adjustments


Still not perfect, still the best I can do for the time being, still pretty darn proud of how far this model has come from day one!

I keep getting the impression that Lady D was part cruise liner. After all, she has passenger cabins (decks 11 and 12) and a bar.

Why do you think Captain Jellico called Enterprise a "luxury liner"?

Yeah, one of the more off-puting things in TNG...

I think you do great justice to the old girl. If I may, a couple of minor crits: 1) Possibly bring the lifeboat hatches closer to the hull. They just seem to stand out a bit too much. 2) Looking from the front view the leading edge of the neck should narrow slightly as it goes from the deflector up toward the saucer. 

Keep up the awesome work!

I made this to have some design elements of the bigger and the smaller model as well, hence the more pronounced lifeboat hatches.

"With all those curves" - a man after my own heart. She looks really good here. I do like the glow of the deflector dish. I would have to say that particular part looks like a physical model.

Primarily, it's exploration vessel, so yes if you are on long term mission of exploration, far from home, then you would want to take your family with you. 😊 That doesn't mean, that Galaxy is defenceless; "TNG Wounded", proven that Galor class warship is no match for Enterprise-D, and "TNG Q who" showed that Galaxy class ships can even disable Borg cube, if it's not adapted to phaser fire.

heavenly777protector Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2018
Well in honest the GALOR class is a piece of crap that can't even stop Maquis raider, VOY pilot episode. Plus the Borg cube was busy blowing up an entire fleet and it used the cutting beam to carve her up like a turkey 👍

This same "piece of crap" seriously damaged, USS Valiant - Defiant class warship - and killed commanding officer on Valiant's bridge. Also look at firepower of Cardassian-Romulan fleet in "DS9: The Die is Cast"; "planetary crust destroyed in opening volley". Not bad, firepower for "piece of crap" , don't you think? And in "TNG: Q who", there wasn't other starfleet ships, just Ent-D vs. Borg cube, and NCC 1701-D managed to, disable Cube, just with three shots.

And as for the Borg cube didn't it literally COMPLETELY repair that damage almost instantly after adapting?
Reply
:iconcyklopi:
Cyklopi Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2018
Yes, but that's not the point; the point is that just three phaser burst, from Ent-D was enough to disable entire Borg cube! If Picard didn't give an order to ceasefire and didn't give Borg time to repair, and to adapt, then Ent would have won, hads down!

That was the actually a Dominion battleship, those bad boys are the size of star destroyers.😎

Cyklopi Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2018
That was a different ship. Let me refresh your memory;

"WATTERS Correct. We were trying to make our way back to Federation-held space when we encountered a Cardassian battle cruiser near El-Gatark. It was our first taste of combat. (beat) In the first fifteen minutes, four regular officers were killed and three others were critically wounded... including Captain Ramirez.

NOG Is that when you took command? WATTERS No. When I got to the bridge, the captain was in pretty bad shape but he was lucid and refused to go to Sickbay. We'd lost main power and were adrift, but the Cardassian cruiser was no better off. "

So,in one on one battle cardassian ship crippled Defiant class warship and killed all senior officers, including captain. So, those cardassian ship are nothing to sneeze at.

Okay points for homework, but the valiant did get Pwnd by that battleship later. Also that particular defiant had non of the improvements/bugs fixed like the original USS defiant. So they were at a huge disadvantage. It took nogs first hand experience with the deviants issues to get them past warp 3.
