Vesta class ortho - USS Aventine by unusualsuspex Vesta class ortho - USS Aventine by unusualsuspex
Felt like doing something diffrent for a while so in with the usual starship images, a few orthos.

Starting with this one... Never seen onscreen (YET!) is the VESTA class USS Aventine. Currently appearing in TrekLit such as the Destiny Trilogy, Typhon Pact and The Fall novels, this particular ship of the class is commanded by Capt Ezri Dax.

Love this ship which was originally designed by Mark Rademaker.

Vesta class - A Bridge Commander port by (I believe) TiqHud

Do you mean you have a 3d model or you want me to make one?

Beautiful class will it become the Enterprise F?

No STO has already provided an -F. The Aventine is solidly its own class now.

I'm not sure, I think it's the Odyssey class

Great render as always mate. The logo I believe may have came from Star Trek Online during their release of the Vesta in their game. I am not 100% though as I only play the KDF faction on that game.

You don't make these models yourself, I'm guessing.

Do you think one of the artists would make models of my ST fanon ships?

Yea, that's right. I have made a couple of models but not with any expertise. There are several talented modelers on DA such as :iconmetlesitsfleetyards:, or :icontrekmodeler: or :iconmajestic-msfc: who may be able to help however. Good luck and sorry I couldn't help :salute:

Thank you.

I guess then that yours were the low detail ones? A good job regardless, All the ships just look like that's how they look and none look higher or lower quality than any other.

No, I've not actually made renders of my models yet. They'll probably be last but there are already images of them in my gallery.

Now this is a work of pure genius. Whoever designed the Vesta class deserves much credit - It's sleek, beautiful, and powerful. Just wish someone would make an image of what the bridge looks like, so I could have a diorama made of it.

Is it just me......or are most newer starfleet ships painted in a similar Camo paint job that WWII ships had....like Missouri BB-63 or Enterprise CV-6

As do I......Since the Odyssey Class is now 1701-F.......The Vesta Class has to be 1701-G

While the concept of the Odyssey was a good one, the final model done by Cryptic wasn't that nice at least to me personally.

i dont like the placement of the necells i think they should be tighter into the ship not sticking out like they are
Reply
:iconunusualsuspex:
unusualsuspex Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Apparently it's the quantum slipstream drive that necessitates the nacelle placement.

heavyneos Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013
but you can see my point if they were tighter in like an excelsior class it would look better, more streamlined

:iconunusualsuspex:
unusualsuspex Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think, from an artistic point of view (rather than technical) it stops it becoming overly streamlined and too thin but I see where you're coming from.

The ship itself looks quite nice though, you wouldn't happen to have that in a usable format for DS, would you?
