That is really frakkin' cool. But it looks like you left some white around the four turrets under the top flight pod in the side view. (This might just be photobucket.)

p.s. I love your profile gif. Ambassador's one of my favorite trek ships.

This is just a random observation...but if this was designed from the ground up as something other than a battlestar, why not extend the head "flare" back and blend it into the main hull rather than how it is designed now? The battlestar's design was driven by form follows function, so it had to conform to certain design needs with regards to the flight pods. This, having a ventral pod, wouldn't have those constraints.

i would presume that the class was derived from the battlestar concept with the side bulges made in place of the flight pods, for extra ammo, fuel, water or even used as onboard gardens. from what i see kevin was doing was reducing R&D time by taking the basic form of a battlestar and removing the flight pods from the side to one pod underneath (obviously) as to why idk. but i presume the side bulge now would house said ammo, fuel, onboard facotories?, water or hydroponics.

I'd flip the pod upside down so the lip isnt on the bottom and thus posing a crash hazard. but thats just me.

repost

Backstory: The Goliath Class Juggernaught came back to the yards a hell of a mess, her bow half blown off, hull breeches over 30% of her hull, 90% of her weapons offline or outright blown to hell. But still her captain made it to the yards before her engines died in a beautiful display of colors and metal (Her upper Port engine exploded nearly setting off the tylium had not 3 unlucky knuckledraggers slammed the doors as the explosion happened.). and to top off the whole mess her underslung pod was for lack of better words in total fraking pieces. 3 missiles ripped the once functional pod to a current state of charred metal and..and indescribable carnage. We hauled her into to an open ship stall once all the fireworks were put out and began to clean up the mess. Her captain fought tooth and nail, literally, to keep her from being scrapped. so happened another Goliath came in worse shape and so she was scrapped to repair the Juggernaught. Seeing how badly both heads were hit it was decided to split her head so to speak and add some more forward firing HKEW's in the upper head to help the lower jaw HKEW's. And Her underslung pod well we flipped it upside down and made it more durable to damage. 2 yrs later the Juggernaught left the yards. Never saw her again.

what do you mean by "never saw her again"? was she destroyed in battle, never needed a refit, lost in space?
