When I was a kid, I got my first look at the mysterious Daedalus-class in the Star Trek Encyclopedia. This was before the internet, so there wasn't great photo reference for this. I remember doodling a version of that ship multiple times as a kid. I really liked the spherical hull--it was so unique, and felt like an anachronism in the ST universe.
This is a 3D version of my take on the Daedalus (based on my rudimentary childhood doodles). I decided to rechristen it with a new class name, as this isn't truly the Daedalus-class anymore. I figured it was built after the first batch of Daedaluses, so it’s a little bigger, bulkier and sleeker. Since I’m terribly clever, I decided to go with the Icarus-class. Consult your Greek mythology textbook if you’re curious about the name of this starship class.
