If you’ve seen my WP, you might have noticed that I haven’t done any Fed or Star Trek vessels since I very first started learning CG. Gave it another try a couple weeks ago, and while I didn’t spend nearly enough time on it or truly try to adapt the design elements to a specific era, I think it took shape quite quickly and nicely. I decided on the name U.S.S. Columbia, but using Blender’s ShapeKeys feature, I derived a number of variants, all of which are adjustable between the various pylon geometries, pylon shapes, etc. via sliders. The texture is lifted from an Ambassador class blueprint.
