The Wasp Class is roughly contemporaneous to the Daedalus, and sports a unique three-nacelle warp design.
About this creation




The Wasp class takes advantage of the Deadalus primary hull design, but with shorter, sleeker nacelles and a compact engineering hull.



Unlike most Federation ships, the Wasp class is oriented with the top pointing in the direction of travel. Looking out any of the ports would show the stars apparently fallling, like rain.



The ship is armed with six phase cannons, three forward and three aft, for an extensive firing range.



In the event of a warp core breach the primary hull easily detaches and acts as a lifeboat.



A close-up of one of the three impulse engines. The ship is exceptionally maneuverable at sublight speeds, but the tripartite warp nacelles did not perform as well as hoped. Starfleet rarely pursued the design afterwards.



A close-up of the primary hull registry, the only graphics done in bricks.



Rather than a standard launch system, the Wasp class opens its torpedo bays to fire.



Hangar doors are port and starboard, on the sphere midline.



A new set of pennants and logos adorn the ship, as the United Earth Space Probe Agency is absorbed into Starfleet.



The hangar has a pass-through design, but there is a pesky turboshaft right in the middle.



The Wasp class can carry six standard shuttlepods, three mounted on the ceiling. It can also be modified to carry twelve small fighters, making it a versatile combatant during the Romulan War.



The hangar is always busy, doubling as the cargo bay.



MACOs are always on duty in the aftermath of the Romulan War.



The recon mission departs.

Quoting Family Vuurzoon Amazing design! It looks very similar to the original Wasp. Didn't you run in to difficulties with LDD? I have the experience that for such large designs LDD becomes very slow. Regards,
I've found some techniques to mitigate those problems, so I can work on a file up to 2.4 MB, but still most people can't even open my files.

Like it! An interesting addition to the fleet.

This is really impressive. The design is so massive, I am surprised my computer can actually open the file. It does give me something to think about on my next design.

Quoting James Donovan It's nice to see the WASP in your collective works, the Star Fleet museum has some cool ships especially the historical parts with UESN, are we going to see any of the other ships from there perhaps?
Doubtful, the Wasp happened to be just the right size that I could rework my Daedalus sphere. Of course there is the Moskva class...

@ Misa, glad to hear it!, i was hoping it was still in the works, and not shut down due to LDD limitations, epicness is epic!

Quoting killswitch95 [SNRK] NICE... so, hows the Enterprise coming along? (Im gonna keep asking, not to bug you, but because Im curious) I know your Saucer for it is basically done, as were the Warp Engines, so basically just Engineering and shuttle bay is left right? I wonder, even if you did build Engineering/Shuttle Bay, could you even put them together in LDD long enough to take pictures...
It's coming ... still thinking how best to tackle the hull. But I want to solve my saucer issues first. Just need some headspace to get back into it.

Some background information on the Wasp class from the Star Trek Expanded Universe Wikia http://stexpanded.wikia.com/wiki/Wasp_class: The Wasp-class starship was a class of cruiser in Starfleet service beginning in 2174. The class was created in response to warp core breaches befalling Daedalus-class starships. When the successor class was announced in 2169, specifications included a command hull impulse drive, emergency hull separation to 5,000 kilometers within five minutes, and relocation of all essential ship functions — except the warp core and antimatter containment — to the spherical command hull. The lead ship of the class, USS Wasp, was launched in December 2173 and commissioned the following November. A total of 15 Wasp-class vessels were built. USS Kearsarge, after its decommissioning in 2217, was put on display at the Starfleet Museum, Sol.

Jeremy, at a spacecraft, there is no such a requirement to support its own weight, as it works in microgravity. However, there is a reasonable concern that engine nacelle pylons should withstand the accelerative force of the warp engines. For this purpose, they could be wider. Moreover, as there is no air drag in outer space, there is no sense to use thin streamlined pylons, some gridded structure would be much more mass-efficient. OK. I know this is sci-fi not science.

Amazing work from a highly skilled, and creative builder. Incredible. BOAJEWD.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Stunning design, Misa -- especially the 3-fold symmetry. Have to wonder about the structural integrity in real brick given the massive size, though. Tried to view instructions to see how the nacelles and pylons attach, but the file caused LDD to crash 3 times in a row.
There's no question that the model would collapse under its own weight, even without a detailed interior to make room for a Technic frame. Also, the LDD file has no structural components at all, and many hinges or pins that would at least assist in stability are deliberately left out to make the software run smoother. Sadly LDD has some rather strict limits.

Quoting Kurt's MOCs Beautifully done! Another great model with excellent details. I love th interior spaces and the UFP banner is done in Lego bricks too? Awesome!
Illustrator and photoshop mostly – only the large characters on the main hull are in bricks. (I've added a photo.)

Very nice and interesting ST-ship, Misa! Again you show a high level of shaping and detail in this MOC! Happy new year!

A rare instance of practically workable nacelle layout in star trek! Nice job!
