I'm loving the balance, and how the lights and movement imply something more is happening. It gives you that serenity that you expect from space flight. Really a lovely vessel. If only I knew if this was a pre-existing ship class or an original (resembles an updated Nova).

Now that I'm past the gawker moment, I'll also point out that the textures feel almost too flat in places. Depending on scale, that would be ok, but this appears to be a smaller ship, which deeper textures and detail would help to drive it's smaller size home. I would experiment with bump map texturing or increasing the polygon count near details that would help to male it pop. Look up a term called greebles, and you should find tutorials on how to utilize mechanical details to imply size. Otherwise, great results.
What do you think?

Is it available for download? I'd love to display it as wallpaper on my computer.

Good on you for playing around with such shapes.

This's clearly a UFP vessel, but the lines are more dynamic (quantum-dynamic?) and there's actually a non-human, non-2000s feel to the design.

Well that was the commissioner's idea :) I gotta agree that shapes are very interesting on this one.

This is so beautiful. She has the look of a great STAR FLEET ship.

She looks like a Refit Nava Class, like the USS Rhode Island under Captain Harry Kim, in ST-VOY End Game Part 1, with some differences though.

Very cool, the warp nacelles are a departure from the Star Trek norm, but it's a welcome one. I get the feeling that this design would appear in Star Trek much later than Voyager chronologically, as it looks much more modern. Was that your intention?
Beautiful work!

Thanks ! :) The hull was pretty basic with one color map and one for reflection intensity (for panel gloss). I mixed the reflection, color and gloss in post-processing to make it stand out a bit more.

That's a very nice merge of different design elements. It's like an Intrepid-class merged with an Ambassador-class and the JJ-Constitution. Intriguing concept, but you captured it very nicely. Great job on the textures as well!

(I'd have lit those windows though!!) ;)
