I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but just never got around to it. Like a lot of nerds, I wasn’t sold on the shape of the Discovery, mainly because it seemed kind of lazy to me, and didn’t seem to fit into the ship design established by Enterprise.
I have to admit, part of that is because I’ve been working on my Bison redesign off and on for the last couple of years, but I really don’t like the nacelle design.
Perennially a WIP
However, I threw together a rough model based on what I could see of the Discovery in the teaser, and have to admit its growing on me. Assuming I got the shape right (and I left out a lot of details, mainly because my eyes were starting to hurt from squinting at my monitor for too long), this beast has a LOT of good angles. I might even pay for that CBS access to watch the show! I still don’t like those ramscoops, though…
