Here is my new creation inspired by several 50's American cars and TOS era designs. The result remembers me more of the Abramsverse than the original one but it is not. With a closer look I think it is somewhat inbetween. An intertwined alternate reality more related to TOS than the Kelvin Timeline. Drawing these I intended to have a ghost gray hull colour like the original Constitution class with yellow-orange Bussard collector intakes and aluminium end caps.

Here are the pictures:

And an advanced version

Some modifications on the main sensor/navigational deflector are reminiscent to the old NX class Columbia NX-02. The warp nacelles were made using Cadillac El Dorado and Chevrolet Belair elements. The BC-decks are based on the Kelvin. I wanted some kind of curve repetition between the nacelles Hood and the secondary hull.

Thanks!

That is just so swan-like. Show them the Decker as well.

Here is the "swan-like silhouette" :P PB-94 Krasnikov type inner warp nacelle :

I think I could make a thread dedicated to warp drive units but not at the time.

The Decker-like ship is always in progress. The Balson (kind of) secondary hull is not so easy to integrate but I've a quite similar idea in mind about it.

I might still want a thiiner saucer for Decker. Your saucer would look nice on a more beefy secondary hull--a proto-Ambassador that isn't Excelsir based like the Balmung from elsewhere.
