Brush out the windows and it could be almost any size, there is nothing to scale it on apart from those.

Actually, according to this pic that I saw, and the intro sequence for the game this was from, Star Trek Invasion:

The ship looks half the size of the Sovereign-class USS Enterprise-E. I'd say about 320 meters in length.

Actually I recognized it from the video game.

Anyway i think there should be 'more' to it because the design is kinda bland.

It is actually appealing to me for me to actually sketch one out based on that design. No Meste, it will be awhile before anyone sees it as I cannot scan it in on a non existent computer. And no iI will not describe it.

True, but as a Dreadnought, isnt that a good thing? It essentially means its just covered in a shell of armor, protecting its key areas. If it looked mroe interesting, it would just mean you have more targets.

Well yeah but the thing looks like a brick.

I just did some comparisons and this thing appears to be only slightly larger than a Kazon Predator class General purpose starship/warship! O_O

Well it does seem to latch onto a Soverigns Engineering core, so it is quite clearly smaller than that. But I see no reason why it cant be scaled up if you remove the windows and play with the dimensions a bit.

Right? Ima try to see if I cant do a little stretch of the ship on my paint document. Try to also make it taller. Something like that.

After looking at it, I realized the fortress mode, which brings the already brick shaped ship into even more of a brick shaped ship may not entirely work. Bringing in the nacelles into the ship might work, but having the sides and front slide in may not work. It seems to be redundant.

That's quite alright. I can be patient to see the final project.

Exactly! Because in order to have it of a sufficient purpose shape size and design, it would have to be significantly larger than it already appears to be.

Sorry. Never bothered to do one.
