Pizza the Hutt has been back a little while now, and in that time, he's given us all kinds of new stuff, but this one.... well, it's not often that I, of all people, see a Starfleet ship I don't like. Usually it's because the model is poorly done, but in this case, I can't fault that. It's a very well done model of a very poorly considered design.
This three-nacelled Excelsior variant is another one of those speculative designs. It is sometimes listed as Trident class and sometimes as Medusa class. It was at first unclear what was the top and what was the bottom of the ship. Pizza the Hutt used Ex Astris Scientia as a reference for this model. Needless to say, the accuracy speaks for itself. But so does the overall appearance of this ship. "Medusa" indeed. Where exactly they put the warp core is open to interpretation, to say the least. That's implying, of course, that thought went into the design. More than likely it was a case of "hang some warp nacelles on it and throw it on screen" kitbashing.
Download this one if you can bear the sight of it. Pizza the Hutt made a really pretty model of a really silly vessel. Can't fault him for doing his bit as a modder, to give us all those canon Starfleet vessels.
