Harcourt class
« on: June 24, 2017, 08:35:36 AM »
I'll will have several more posts before july begins, and then i'll start again in august.

A class of starships introduced in 2175. NX-150 was the class leader. the Harcourt class was 340 meters long. It remained a contemporary of the Rockwell class ship introduced ten years later. The Class featured a shuttle bay on the fore end of the ventral hull. It was also capable of landing. The class was not considered a true successor to the NX-class, and was in fact less advanced in some ways. The Harcourt class did however, have the most advanced sensor capabilities in Starfleet at the time, surpassing anything the Rockwell class posessed. The sensors on Harcourt class made it well suited for exploration and surveying space. The Harcourt class had a minimal armanant of four phase cannons and four photon torpedo launchers.

The USS Edgedancer (NCC-185) was one of these ships. This vessel was famous for it's mysterious destruction above Kaferia in 2187. the crew of the USS Coronado's analysis of the data collected from Edgedancer's sensors proved vital to proving that the Federation was not under attack by the Romulans, thus averting another interstellar war.

I'll be making changes to make it look less like ships we've seen before (Akira and NX). I made this mostly because I sorta liked the design of the USS Shenzhou but I didn't want to make a model yet without all the specs.

Length: 340 m
Width: 180 m
Height:48 m
Decks: 12
Deck height: 3.5 m
Armament: 4 phase cannons, 4 photon torpedo tubes
Crew Complement: 400
Auxilliary craft: 8 shuttlepods
Max impulse: .25c
Max warp: 6.5
Max warp (emergency): 7

So, do you remember me
In those moments just before you sleep?
I know you remember me
Swear to me the memory isn't seen
Promise me
That it doesn't make your heart beat
Doesn't make your heart beat

Interesting. First I was all "ugh, another NX derivative" & then I was all "oh wait, no it's not".

It did start out that way, catamarans and all, but I think I like how it's progressing now.

I like it. Fits well into the Earth Starfleet lineage.

Thanks.

Ending July hiatus early. I won't start regular posting until late august though

 I improved impulse and nacelle detailing. The aztec paneling is almost complete, and the overall color of the hull is darker and less saturated. I also added the shuttlebay.

Began adding windows

Airlocks, RCS thrusters and landing gear hatches are next. Maybe i'll make the lower hull (below the shuttlebay) more rounder.

Updated orthos. I added RCS thrusters, Airlocks and landing gear hatches. I also added a some sort of science or sensor module in the middle of the dorsal saucer section (The bridge is located near the foward saucer above the navigational deflector).
