    Nick Duguid's design, #1
    My first vote would have been for an updated T6 version of the Risian Cruiser. But since that wasn't an option...No.1
    While not sure what the legs/hydrofoils are suppose to be, its pretty sleek and fast looking. And has the ol' Tim Burton's Batmobile turbine intake too. ;)

    Isn't that what #2 is? It seems like a ship where you can take the beach with you on your adventures. A ship with its own biodome is interesting, but it needs more work due to the hull and currently #1 has far more style. #1 seems more like a warship, but #2 certainly fits the style of the Luxury Cruiser the most.

    I'm not voting
    None of them look particularly enticing, so I'll grab whichever one wins for the admiralty card and mothball the ship alongside most of the other event ships I have accrued.

    They all look pretty far out and hip. Though I think I wound up digging the first one the best.

    I voted for number 2 mainly because of the big holosphere in the middle, very appropriate for a science vessel. I dont like no1 mainly because it looks just like the jupiter and look like big slow whales. I prefer more sleeky sci ships.

    Number two looks decent, but i hope they make it a small nimble vessel and not some lumbering hulk.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    Hate to sound like a broken record, but my opinion of these ships is kinda clouded by the fact that I wish they'd put similar time and effort into giving the Nova class a desperately needed quality pass.

    It's definitely between 2 and 4 for me. Though I voted for 2 in the end. It's the most unique design out of the 4 ships imo.

    I just like the overall design, and having such a large habitat dome is very appealing, though due to that it's not a ship I would want to fly in combat ;) I could see this as a generational ship similar to the one we see, as a recent example, in the Orville, or garden ship like out of Battlestar Galactica.

    Not overly keen on #1. It's just a very vanilla design. Too much of a hot rod boat combined with a starship for my tastes. It is a nice design, but too bland for me.

    #3 is an interesting design, but I'm really not happy with the two domes being so high on the ship. if they were more recessed into the ship, and a portion of the front section was raised higher like on the original concept, I'd like it more. As is... I just want to paint the thing green and call it the "U.S.S. Kermit"

    #4 I rather like. It's very much a submarine style. It's got some great lines and curves, and is a rather appealing design, but just like #1 for me it's a little too bland. A little too much of what I would expect of a Starship.

    Would just like to thank everyone involved in this. It has been great to watch all the designs develop and grow into these beautiful concept images. Whichever one wins. I can't wait to see the finished model.

    Wow, those are some beautiful ship designs!

    I had to pick ship 3. Even though it actually seems the least 'Risian' in design to me, it's the one I'd most like to see filling my screen while flying through space.

    Design 2 is very nice but a bit Flash Gordon-y for my taste. Design 1 looks very ocean-predator style, perhaps a bit aggressive for the Risian mindset. Design 4 actually looks the most 'Risian' to me, but it also has a bit too much of that Flash Gordon/20,000 Leagues Under the Sea feel to me... kind of retro sci-fi.

    Anyways, all nice, would be happy to fly any of them. But let's see a little more voting love for #3 please!

    #1 got my vote. I mean, T5 Risian cruiser says speed, T5 & T6 Risian Corvettes say maximum speed on water or impulse in space, naturally #1 Nick Duguid's says mega-speed on water or in space, while housing many tourists and crew dedicated to charting new pleasure planets and boldly pleasuring like no one has pleasured before!!

    Very true, but it's thinner and sleeker, and once the nice wild Risian color schemes racing stripes show up it'll only have a passing resemblance. One could say number 2 is like a Nautilus and also not unique. The quest for speed often results in uniformity of designs, like in race cars, and it would be no coincidence federation ships which also focus on speed share some such design aspects, unlike space birds, or space bricks.

    I was going to go with the obvious choice with number 1... but then I thought nah we have so many long ships and number 2 reminds me too much of another Fedbear ship so I decided to go with number Number 3.

    It also reminds me of the Asgard from SG-1 which is pretty neat.

    The T6 Risian Luxury Liner was suppose to be this years ship. But, they changed it up to next years ship so that they could do this.

    I really liked 1 and 4 most, ultimately went with 1 because of those funny winglets/hydrofoils or whatever they are supposed to be that make it look like it was designed for deep sea, surface sea, and space exploration, and can probably put down on land somewhere too if it wanted. I do think it is a bit long, though.

    I found 2 interesting but a little too simple and small, too focused on the biodome which we kinda already have in the cruiser, so it feels too much like rehashing that idea without bringing much new to the table.

    For 3, what really put me off about that ship is the double dome setup. They don't look right like that. Maybe if they were blisters on the sides rather than on top I might like it more.

    On 4, it looks like a neat submarine which is great, but the multi dome setup again puts me off since they are all in line with each other. Why have multiple domes that all have basically identical field of view? They look a lot more integrated though, which works a lot better.

    #2. Risa is supposed to have some of the most advanced environmental control systems out there, and this ship seemed to really push that.

    I voted for #1
    #1 looks the most Risian.
    #2 could be a sort of alien colony ship. overall looks massive with the landscape inside it.
    #3 looks like a racing corvette. Looks on the small side
    #4 could be a new Xindi Aqutic type of ship. for a new amphibious race.
    all have a place in game. I think.

    Not really. The change is too much. Take the other Risian ship for instance. Very little change was made between T5 and T6.

    I liked 1, 2 and 4 about equally much. But what I wanted was a Risan Science Vessel Submarine, and the 4th seemed to fit the most. Though the first might, too, perhaps.

    It was close, between 1 and 3.
    Ship 1 would have been the choice for me if it didn't look so elongated.
    Ship 3 looks like it can function as part of a Task Force but is at home in orbit above Risa.

    I was mixed between 2 & 3 myself, mostly cause I'd love to see a Speedy, Nimble, and Manueverable Risian SCI Ship.
