USS Kepler, NCC 1900 - Federation Space Exploration Vessel . This ship was built out of leftovers from my Excelsior just for fun and I wasnīt sure if I should ever post it. But, since I have no projects going on at the moment, I decided to post her anyway. It all began with the nacelles, which were built first and the rest then slowly grew around it. After completing the nacelles they kept laying around for a long time, because I had no idea for a fitting primary hull design. Only until I saw some Space Police 3 sets with these awesome wing panels that solved all of my design problems. The design itself is not very special, no spectacular techniques or so. Just a little photo editing. So, enjoy! . USS Kepler (Kepler Class)

The greenhouse. Used for production of some fresh, non replicated food, crew recreation and botanic expeiments.
The hangar doors located in the belly lead to the cargo section of the ship
USS Galileo, slightly bigger than a later Runabout.
Above the docked yacht you can see a rear torpedo launcher and the rear phaser strip.

Firing a torpedo, the black strip on the right of the launcher is a Phaser strip.
