Mercator Shield Cruiser
Description:

This Federation cruiser was an attempt to develop advanced shield technologies and apply them to next-generation starship designs. The Mercator Shield Cruiser successfully demonstrated these advanced shielding concepts, but was itself a failure. The Mercator was too expensive and too poorly armed to be considered a ship of the line.

As the economic disadvantage of the design diminished over the years, more Mercators were built. However, they were largley relegated to long-range patrol duties.

Design Notes:
A personal design, and the first real "fan ship" art that I did after I got into this conversion project a ways. A combination of the Enterpise and Excelsior designs to a large extent.
