I came up with a refit design for this ship, called the USS Stapleton: dalekofborg.deviantart.com/art… She has 3 nacelles and 12 heavy phaser turrets.

Did the refit change her from New Light Cruiser designation to Destroyer?

looks like someone threw a twin hull catamaran, a flying saucer and a klingon warbird into i blender and ended up with a not half bad looking federation ship that they decided would play no major parts in any movie because it looked too cool.

Tell me you didn't type that.  That thing trashed the Enterprise, was Ricardo Montalban's personal soundstage, and was Ground Zero for the only full-scale Genesis deployment ever.

Ooo!  My favorite ship of them all!  Dance!

It just looks 'right' to me, being a slightly more recent addition to the Federation's Starfleet, and having some toughness that's characteristic of the Constitution-class; a good sibling you could say.

As far as its classification, i.e. frigate, destroyer, et al, I was given the impression that it was a 'research cruiser', hence the reason why it was looking for a suitable planet for the Genesis Project.  The double-rear hangers (partially visible in the profile view) would be a suitable launch of various shuttles to planets in a star system.

the source material I have seen had her listed as a "New Light Cruiser" with the code designation being NCL

I know it's all open to interpertation but I always thought the Miranda was a light cruiser. Still awesome work on the spec sheet. Are her variants and the Soyuz coming up?

If unsure of what I mean, I made some low poly models (unsuitable for this) for my game project:

Your low-polys are better than some high polys :thumbsup: There are three more Mirandas on the way: An upgrade to the TOS version, the Soyuz class variant and the TNG Miranda.

I'd like to get the models of this ship and the Constellation class and build the kitbash I made before with the upper Constellation nacelles and pylon on top of the main body of the Miranda.

Another beautifully done ortho. :)

I'd have to say my favorite Fed ships from the movie era were the Excelsior and Miranda class.

I love the superb detail in your modeling! I should ask what is your favourite(s) for Star Trek vessels?

I wish they were my models but they're usually made by others and kindly shared. I can't choose a real favourite, I love them all!! :D
