I really do like that nacelle setup and whilst I would agree it is remeniscence of Andromeda it certainly adds a unique character to the design. I would put this is the same family I class the likes of the Defiant and Steamrunner (and several others as well). A couple of questions though.

- What kind of size is the ship supposed to be?? I see the shuttle but as its not defined what shuttle type it is, its difficult to get a picutre of the overall size.
- With there being, what I assume to be, an auxilary deflector can the ship, in times of destress, disconnect from the engineering hull (core breaches and such things)??

Thanks mates for the CCs
The ship is around 250-300 metres long, no more, no less.
At this moment, I feel that the ship challenges a lot, but she definitely can readily be identified as a Federation ship.  I will still be playing with the shape just a bit more, but I will mainly be working out the details :)
Then the schematic :D

Major- I dunno on the deflector pod (because the main engineering is in the saucer).
As for the shuttle you'll see more of that idea soon too :)

Interesting. Well it could be a large life pod perhaps. I mean if you look at the likes of the Prometheus it does have auxillary nacelles that are part of the saucer when its in MVAM mode, so maybe this could have the same (would be an interesting thing to see though).

Design is getting better and better Atolm! Can't wait to see the schematics.

Merry Christmas!

I'm sure you did it the way it is on purpose, but I'll say this anyway... ;) I think it would look better with the 2ndary hull towards the rear of the saucer rather than towards the front.

Very awesome design though. Very original, departs, no, runs away from the norm and accepted convention, still very commercially viable though. Reminds me of your design that had the 2ndary hull more or less vertical underneath the saucer.
If Romulans aren't cowards, then why do they taste like chicken?

Forgive me for the utter travesty I performed on your hull drawing.

The ship looks Andorian designed to me.  I think perhaps the hull needs a definate but subtle bow and stern distinction.

Thinking of the Kestral and other early Andorian built or designed ships.. From SFM site.  I recall reading that the Andorrians preferred to
attach the warps directly to the primary hull.

Again, forgive me for what I did to your work.

LOL, Don't worry 'bout it mate.
If I'm not mistaken, you are referring to the unicorn games RPG Andorian book.
In said book they did show saucered ships for the Andorians.

I did, but I think the nacelles look better in like I first had them.. and Yes, that's a hint that I'd like to see a station done in this style.. ;)

(edit: fixed)

Atolm,

I love that no matter what anyone has said, you have pursued this design as a federation start trek design..   and with ur later images... bang you shut them up, nice work.. i think it looks great, would love to see more.  ;)
