USS Hyperion by Jim197 USS Hyperion by Jim197
Front, back, side, top and bottom views of the USS Hyperion, my vision of a Star Trek TOS-era escort class vessel. The design was inspired by the USS Grissom from the third Star Trek movie.

The ship has seven retractable phaser batteries (six on the primary hull and one aft on the secondary hull) and six photon torpedo batteries (ranged around the secondary hull and identified by black and yellow chevron markings). Frankly it is probably over-gunned.

Rendered using POV-Ray 3.6 on 11th January 2012.

It looks like the Currie class starfighter carrier

Nice looking over gunned ship (more photon torpedo batteries than Enterprise ^^)

I always thought the USS Grissom looked like the Enterprise had ripped off its head. LOL!
And don't worry I also always wondered about stuff like how did the crew get from the saucer to the engineering section.

Well it certainly looks like a convincing Grissom derivative or predecessor. I've always wondered how anyone is supposed to get to the lower hull. The crew must spend a lot of time on ladders.

It's an interesting point. The pylons on this model are 2.958 metres thick, which means there should be enough room for a small turbolift (say 1.5 metres across) to slide through them. The turbolift would probably have to rotate to match the incline of the pylon, but that shouldn't be a problem given that the artificial gravity could point in any direction you like.

I worry about things like this. It's sad.

What about installing a central trunk extending from primary hull to secondary hull that will connect directly to the engineering deck? It can house utility lifts, it could be storage bays, work bee bays, or what ever.

Well spotted. Although the overall shape was inspired by the Grissom, the design of the saucer and the secondary hull owe much more to the Excelsior. I'm glad you like the end result.
