Spent the last couple of hours fixing the mistake I made in the ventral grids. I also decided to end them just before the saucer sensor array, since I think this looks better. Smoothing is back on for this one, which is why the grids look rumpled.

Here’s my plan for the deck layout, which will have a direct impact on where I place the ship’s various windows. The layout is based on a combination of Jackill’s Ambassador deck plan, as well as Padsbrat’s outstanding version. I liked the overall feel of Padsbrat’s layout more than Jackill’s, so these heights are closer to his.

The heights assume a ship length of 478.5 meters, which is the “retro-canon” length that Drex and friends settled on. The original published length was 526 meters.
