Not even gonna clip-art THAT piece of shit.

is the federation that fucked up that you build retreads of old designs? Not that it isn't logical, mind you, but 3 year-olds playing with thier feces could make better designs/refits...

Now now, he's at least as subject to the (idiotic) whims of the directors/producers as any other designer.
Eaves' designs for Insurrection were very good and what did they do? They made him turn the (very cool looking) Holoship into a brick, cram the Captain's Yacht into the torpedo launcher and then rendered the Son'A command ship flying backward.

I recall Probert being pissed that he had to add those "fins" to the ends of the Connie Refit's nacelles.

But the man also has some pretty bad designs (mostly from Nemesis) to go with his very cool ones (Dominion and their allies).

That "Super Miranda" is indeed a steaming turd: is the outer hull supposed to be lopsidede or are they going for some cartoonish look?

A real lack of originality there.

Okay, so the ship designs thus far haven't been inspiring, but character creation is looking pretty good.

Although someone on Trekmovie complained it was harking back to mashed potato on people's foreheads (or something along those lines), I think it looks really encouraging. And I'm sure they'll let you make more unusual and adventurous aliens once the movie comes out and they see the Star Warsy aliens that can now be included in the dressing up box.

Kind of disappointing to see that the create your own alien mode is bound by the infamous skin/ears/forehead rules of ST alien of the week designs

I saw the Vorta, but where do you see a Founder?

If you choose a Founder, can you become other races/species/genders?

Technically you should be able to become anything you want, from smoke to fish to lamp posts, which means it's probably not a good idea to include founders as playable characters.

New shots released, one of the Miranda. I have to say I like the color scheme. The mixing of black, grey and white surfaces freshens up the design.
Also, this Miranda has a conventional rollbar, it seems to be customizable. The pod in the earlier screenshot looks like it's from the Akira-class.

They've also shown a ship that looks like a modified Cardassian freighter(the Groumall).
