A while back I asked Andrew Probert (Yes, the man who designed the fabulous Enterprise D amongst other things) if I could use his intriguing design for a repair tug and MSD-ise it. He said yes.
Here we have his designs.
Note that the lower two decks are reversed and are “upside down” in relation to the rest of the vessel. This is because the bottom of the ship is flat and serves as a maintenance and repair deck. The two supporting decks are orientated to facilitate easier access.
The overall length of the tug is almost as long as the nacelle on a galaxy class ship.
And here is my MSD of it:
A friend of mine gave me the idea for this.
A little twist on a well known Darth utterance :)

Many have asked me “Where do you stand on Scottish Independence?”
My response can be lengthy. But to cut it short: No.
This many puts it into far better words that I could ever hope to.

Anyone following Rick Sternbach on his facebook thread (https://www.facebook.com/rick.sternbach) will have seen he’s been fleshing out his work on the USS Voyager.
He included some detailed information on a design that almost was the Voyager. Finally I had a source to work with in order to create an MSD for what I always thought was quite a cool design, if not for a ship of the line, but for a work horse frigate/cruiser.
Here is his work:

So, with Mr. Sternbach’s blessing, and as my contribution to “Countdown to Voyager +20″, I did this:

Hello all, thought I’d post up a quick update to let you all know I’m still alive and kicking.
I’ve been quite busy with commissions and private life, now I have a wedding as best man to prepare for also. So any graphical updates here are going to be few and far between for a while.
My inbox is overflowing with requests, so to all those waiting (up to 3 months!) for a reply, you will get one.
The eagle eyed will note that my blue print differs from just about every other source in that I have a connecting corridor between the port and starboard entrances to the observation lounge.
I did this as we clearly see Riker and other crew/guests exit the lounge via the port side door and turn right. All other blue prints have a solid wall there and that made no sense to me. Especially as there was no obvious access to the equipment bay and computer access behind the bridge.
Also, unhappy that the only way to the observation lounge was a turbolift via the bridge or ramp access from deck 2, I’ve added a turbolift door on the port side corridor. Forcing guests via the bridge or ramps to access the primary conference room on board a ship as grand as the Galaxy class, I feel this to be the easiest fix!
