I'm a first time moddeler for STL, though I have moddeled for Unreal Tournament 2004 and Skinned for Knights of the Old Republic.

I thought for my first model I would recreate one of the original concepts for the Defiant also known as the Valiant back then, its design I found particularly interesting, as it reminds me of a Federation attempt at a Bird of Prey.

So far I have only moddeled one of the Naucelles and part of the saucer section, this is the concept art for the USS-Valiant: ussvaliant2copyfr6.th.jpg

Please ignore the temp textures around the side of the concept art they are so I can get an idea of the models shape.

This is what I have currently Modeled: ussvaliantwipgx8.th.jpg

It's going to be in the same class as the Defiant which if I remember correctly is a Destroyer. Although the weapon complement will be more towards a traditional starship instead of pulse phasers it will have traditional beam weapons.

Statistically it will be weaker than the Defiant because its based on a concept that was rejected at the time of DS9, thus making it inferior or impractical.

I am still unsure on what class to call it as it has no cannon starship class though it was known as the USS-Valiant during the intial concept stages.

If I remember correctly there was a USS-Valiant Defiant Class ship during the dominion wars, which was destroyed.

Here is an updated shot of the design phase with the intial parts of the hull being moddeled at the moment: ussvaliantwip2na7.th.jpg

Looks similar to the Alita class. Cool ship. I wish I could mod...

*edited* looks like a dead ringer for the Alita class ship check this: Alita Class, Star Trek: Legacy Downloads, Star Trek: Legacy Federation

Damn guess you are right, they can't really complain at me though considering my WIP shots show the official concept artwork for Valiant/Defiant which they used also. I did look for Valiant models by name on LegacyFiles but where its not called the Valiant I missed it. I guess I'll have to design a new class of Federation Vessel, and stay away from doing copys of concept art.

Hey, it is okay if you model it! We do not have problems with people that make similar work than we! If you were copiing some unique designs like the Explorer or the Myth, then we would ask you not to release your work...but this is a design that has not been made by us...so please continue your work!
