Nice !
Thanks! I thought I should try and flesh out Sternbach's wildly cool Fed concept some :)

I'd have gone with Hammerhead-class, but that's probably overused.

I do not believe that these "concepts" would actually have a class, as they were proposed to be just musings of possible shapes for the next class of explorer, "Nova-Class".  I just wanted to flesh out the design some more that the basic line drawing of the original.
I'm sure Bernd could some it up better than I.

Flip the whole design upside down and you might be onto something, looks awesome but just seems like its either incomplete (just an engineering hull) or really unbalanced.

If I did as you proposed, then it wouldn't be what was proposed as it was proposed in the book.

Although I am familiar with the concept, I'd somehow expect a Voyager-style primary hull to sit between the nacelles.

But wonderfully drawn, as usual!
