Here is one of the most 'unusual' kitbashes I've seen, and it works nicely- the USS Reptile. What impressed me most about this design? The well layed out phaser arcs. Thought she is a TMP era ship,
my TNG enemy ships 'always' head Straight for her first? Showing her hardpoints are a force to be reckoned with. Even when I had the Reptile as an escort in my fleet. The Reptile comes with a standard compliment of TMP torpedos. And she can run circles around a Galaxy Class Dreadnought at impulse speeds. I tested the Reptile against (2) C2 Vorcha Classes. Before getting by butt kicked back to federation space, the Reptile held out for an amazing eight minute battle. Longer than I would have exspected. The Reptile Class is a must have for you TMP fans out there... She's definately a Keeper!
