views and 3/4
From the lost files of Perpetual comes this little asymmetrical deep space science vessel. Bristling with probes and sensors , this little ship maps space, galaxy’s and all it’s celestial wonders. There is only a B&W of this one.
That is perhaps one of the coolest trek ships I have ever seen! Fantastic!
This has to be one of the most different design Fed ships I have ever seen.
It got a bit of a robotic sub look to it which I love.
It could have fitted in well with the Modden Day parts of Titanic.😉
Loving the little details. interesting little spinny looking mirror dealie too. What is the little hooded deal next to the text “high 3/4” it has a kind of platform thing going on.
why that’s were they put your choc-shake, burger, and fries when you go thru the drive in!!! Actually its a space particle testing screen.
it deploys and then slides back into cowling.
Mmmmm mmmm good. :9.
Cool, reminds me of the P-38 and those other twin hull airplanes.
Interesting to see an asymmetric design. Not many of those in Starfleet.
That is so true, and the game allowed a lot of rule breaking as far as ideas and concepts went.
First time posting, and I gotta say I love your work!
I saw this design, and the first thing I thought was: “When did the Federation start copying the Breen?” It’s not as clean as the traditional starships out there, but it honestly works. It’s more hardware oriented, like a roughneck on an oil rig – it’s not meant to be pretty, it just gets the job done.
When you design ships, even just sketching them for the first time, do you design with regard to function? Or do you flush out a bunch of different designs, then go back and fill in the blanks later?
Sweet. All of your designs are beyond first rate. Thanks for showing us all this stuff. All the ol’ Perpetual stuff is awesome. Too bad the compant and game is no more.
Hmm… I stared at it for some time, but it just doesn’t grow on me. I agree that an asymetrical design could be interesting, but this one doesn’t seem an explorer; it looks more like a ship that has been cobbled together by the survivors of the 30th century Borg invasion…
It is cool to get everyone’s take on things and love your rational to the design of this one. interesting world Perpetual opened up and there were a lot of directions that had been unexplored as far as a known architecture was concerned. This one was based on literally like you said aviation parts from the scrap yard. it was almost like kit bashing making this one!!
Asymmetrical, but balanced. I like it!😀
I love this little shippy
lately I’ve been pretty bored with symmetrical designs, so this one here just makes me want to look at it for a long time😀
It’s very… unique… for a Trek-ship.
Some interesting bits and pieces.
You know it’s the trekverse. That is what makes your stuff so strong John. I love it’s connection to other utility vehicles…
Well, apart from the bridge dome and the defiant-esque nacelles it doesn’t really say Starfleet. But it would be a perfect vessel for the Star Wars universe.
Cool ship with a name and registry. Thanks for posting it.
Thanks for all the comments that are across the board. Glad your liking all the posts!!!
I think we have gotten used to all pretty starships in the Trek verse. A real spaceship doesn’t have to be pretty…it just as to do the job. Look at the LEM..it was designed to land on the moon and that’s it. And it’s an ugly bugger.
But this is entertainment so you want some plausibility as well as a cool factor.
I like it! It looks like a Swiss Army Knife in space, which is what you’d want in a science and exploration vessel! Well done, John!
LOL BB4, I was thinking that! Its a cool little ship!
Form follows function. I like the ‘hidden” Starfleet elements. I wish Trek productions had shown more of these types of things that stretched (or broke) the established familiar (sometimes boring!) norms.
I like this ship. At least it’s not the same old saucer with two engines attached to it. I guess this is another one I’ll have to save as a reference to build later, in the future.
Looks nice and unconventional. Not typical Starfleet.
Reminds me of the ships from teh Wing Commander game.
Interesting! It clearly breaks with a tradition and is yet recognizable as a Starfleet design. But I wouldn’t say that it looks like a deep space explorer. For some reason I think it would have made a great tug in the place of that fugly kitbash in “A Time to Stand”.
