Future Flagship

The Ascension class is in the 25 Century a flagship of the United Federation of Planets. She is over 1400 m long with a crew of 10000.
The Ascension is probably most famous for being the main ship of the Fanseries Star Trek: Phoenix.

A very nicely done ship. Very Starfleet-esque as well, despite it's size. But I think it does raise an issue not that they wouldn't build a ship that big, but whether or not they actually could. The Enterprise-J is a comparable size and isn't built for at least another 200 years. 
However, it is still a magnificent starship, possible or not, and I will try not to flail around the room when I start typing I WANNA I WANNA I WANNA!!!! (Damn, I failed). I'm surprised, though, that they could get away with just two nacelles. The Enterprise-D from all good things had three, and even though they weren't necessary, my friends and I concluded that more nacelles meant a more stable warp field, and with something that big, by God do you need the most stable field you can get.
I'm sorry to pick so many holes in this, I promise you I'm not this judgemental normally, but it is a massive step up from previous tech. It is though, undoubtedly, a brilliant piece. I love it. Well done.
Just out of interest, is it a carrier as well as a battleship? It looks like it should be.

Thank you ery much for comment. I dont know much about the Ascension class. Its the main ship from the Star Trek Fanfilm Star Trek Phoenix… where you can see more of her.
The Phoenix is not a warship or carrier. Its a Explorer like the Galaxy class with families and such things.

I'm not one of those, "The Federation would never build anything that big". But 10,000 crew seem's a little on the large size. Excellent art work.

This ship is very elegant and is a wonderful design. I just love it and wish that this had been in the Star Trek series. I especially love the way you drew the warp nacelles and how they're connected to the ship. I really think this has a excellent combination of warship and starship.

Too big for my tastes.

Yeah, me too. I like smaller, agiler ships.

I like between 100-250 in a crew size preferably USS Voyager size.

Dang, that's a big ship! She's almost as big as a Romulan Warbird!
