Here is my fav ship concept I would drop coin on. Looking for your opinions.
Here are some possible ship ideas to justify her creation:
- Brand new Phaser Technology. Instead of phaser array strips. We go back to retractable phaser ball turrets (these are better kept safe in war times especially with the new hull materials and shielding) The phaser mound turrets rise and they fire "Punch Beams". These are dense very bright flashy phaser beams which streak through space and as soon as they hit the enemy the beam sparkles away in to particles that lose cohesion. It's not that different from a lightning strike but perfectly focused in to a beam. The colors of these beams would be a deep reddish orange (yet still very bright and glowy) and a fleet variation could be classic federation blue.
