this ship is reminiscent of the Tier 5 Science Vessel Monstrosities of ST:O...
I don't mind the nacelles in 'warp-speed' folded config.
but folding up more than 90degrees
seems a little too "upside-downy Klingon Bird of Prey"
The crew compliment is ~60,
so, the bridge seems way too sprawling, and fall-hazard-y,
though all the seals and 'variable gravity zone' decals suggest the bridge might be crewed
by species which have different lifesupport needs.
Considering the lack of information we have on the ship, I'll guess that the folding wings have to do with their Scanner scattering platting, to reduce their profile, similar to contemporary ship and fighter plane designs. I'd say this ship was heavily inspired in design by some contemporary American naval vessels...
I haven't seen ep 5 yet, but good lord, if Voq isn't still all Klingon, I don't know how else he can be explained as anything else. I mean, he all out went on a rant about how he was surgically altered to look human and he's as Klingon as any other Joe Klingon around otherwise. Plus the baby sure as hell looked Klingon to me.
Anyway, my point about that is, it's his unique Klingon background that makes him a candidate for s.31, and why Giorgiou wants him so bad... Sooooo baaaaaaad
