Very nice. Is this from the TOS era, or TMP?

Also, where's the shuttlebay? In the same place as the canon Enterprise? At the same level as what I assume is a shuttle, under the secondary hull's curve? Do shuttles drop out of a bomb bay-like hangar, the way Curtiss F9C fighters dropped out of the USS Akron (ZRS-4)?

Shuttlebay is at the bottom of the secondary hull, opening backward, under the fantail. If you know where the excelsior's bottom shuttle bay/cargo hangar is, it's similar.

I see.

I've long believed Federation starships should have an additional shuttlebay door on one side, so the flight deck may be angled, like contemporary aircraft carriers. That would allow the starship to simultaneously launch and recover shuttles- considering how many shuttles a starship may carry, it seems reasonable to take advantage of this. What's your opinion on shuttlebay arrangements?

Odd that the enterprise is called a heavy cruiser and later starfleet ships are portrayed under more scientific means. Nonetheless,Goregous sketch!

See the battle of wolf 359 for details on how the feddies got their asses handed to them by a single borg cube.

That's because The Next Generation and onward portrayed star fleet as a bunch of toothless star-hugging hippies who would fold to the first aggressive empire to wage serious warfare. Though I seem to despise Ron Moore for BSG, I have to give him credit for giving the Feds a well-deserved bloody face from this pacifistic approach to the universe.

While I understand the optimism Gene wanted in TNG, I just think it's highly unrealistic to be so unprepared in an unsure universe.

The Enterprise is a heavy cruiser.

I thought it was fitting for a serial number over "Naval Construction Contract".

So CA would stand for Cruiser . . .?
