I have to say I like this alot, but my issue with it is 150 crew? look at te windows and then think of the scale of the inside. The problem is it doesn't look big enough for 150 (even in an emergency). the best way to improve this is problem is to make the windows smaller and more numerous, but still spaced.

One thing to keep in mind on old TMP vessels the windows were much smaller due to being military in nature, however the Arpeggio is post DS9, not even the Dominion war is still happening, thus no war-design ^-^

What im saying is scale wise, a person would be about 2 thirds as tall as the main bridge window on the saucer section, since TNG and onward the window designs were far larger, derived from the ship's ability to rely on shields more than armour, the larger windows provided the less military oriented crews of the TNG era with a more spacious feeling, the Arpeggio much alike the galaxy was designed with civilians in mind, being a logistics support vessel it may often carry VIP's to their designated vessels or stations.

I hope I dont sound to bad, but there is logic in the madness ^-^

In my opinion, we shouldn't need to cater to people who dont understand, if starship enthusiasts want to become trekkies they can start at the bottom like the rest of us :)

If we dumb things down we'll go the way gaming is going, recipe for success crushing creativity.
Anyway mandatory micro-rant over ^-^

A truly well-thought-out and academic presentation.

Looks like a very logical progression of the design, definitely a far more practical one.

You did the impossible! You made the Oberth design (idea) look sexy!

I am truly amazed by this awesome design. It really does give off the look of being related to the Oberth Class while also having it's own uniqueness. If possible, I would love to see a more detailed version in the future, as I love this design.

I would love to give it a touch up, sadly I use the free version of Sketchup, the tools I used to make many of the details became restricted when the pro trial ran out and the developers want £500 a year for pro. Until I get those tools back I cant do anything else from my Alpha borders story.

However if you like my re-do You should check out my Archer class.
