Default Iolair Tactical Fighter

Hey all, been a long time since I've been here. Over two years, actually.

Well, I figured I'd come back in as strong as possible, so I decided to show my Iolair Class Tactical Fighter. Iolair (not LOL-air) is the Gaelic word for Eagle. It's part of my own 25th century Star Trek project. Hopefully she gets accepted to the Journal of Applied Treknology, since I submitted her to it recently. All the stats and specs are in a really long article I wrote for her. She's about 23 meters long, warp capable, and well armed.

As always, modeled in AC3D, then rendered in POVRay.



Why yes, these are on my DeviantART page. Why yes, I would appreciate more pageviews. Why yes, that is the link to my page in my signature. Why yes, I'm being ingratiating. I'll stop, sorry about that.

Very nice and great modeling. So its both space and atmosphere capable?

Indeed she is. I wanted to try to avoid having her require some sort of antigrav support or assisting field for flight within an atmosphere. Trek shuttles, and especially the one fighter that they've shown, are rarely aerodynamic, and sometimes that bugs me. Sure, it doesn't need to be aerodynamic in space, but surely it could save at least a bit of energy during atmospheric flight.
