I submit this proposal for anyone to download and open in Blender.
This is a conversion of the mesh published by David "KnightRider" Metlesits on 2011 on http://www.trekmeshes.ch
My work was to convert the model to Blender; I added some lights to the deflector dish, some lights representing the illumination of the nacelles on the hull, and some postprocessing regarding them; you may either use indirect lighting or the provided lights in your renders.
Please make sure to credit David in your work, as he is 100% the author of this superb mesh.
You might consider adding this as a conversion at http://www.trekmeshes.ch/meshes/meshesd ... DMETLESITS
