Nice job. Still looks too "Warsy".
Huh? that reference went over my head
The merchantman while a very fine bit of work looks to me to be more Star Wars like than Star Trek. The result of ILM taking over for Trek FX.

Agreed! I think a rhyme will help in this discussion.

"Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green,
When I am king, dilly dilly, you shall be queen:
Who told you so, dilly dilly, who told you so?'
Twas mine own heart, dilly dilly, that told me so.
Call up your men, dilly dilly, set them to work,
Some with a rake, dilly dilly, some with a fork;
Some to make hay, dilly dilly, some to thresh corn,
Whilst you and I, dilly dilly, keep ourselves warm.
If you should die, dilly dilly, as it may hap,
You shall be buried, dilly dilly, under the tap;
Who told you so, dilly dilly, pray tell me why?
That you might drink, dilly dilly, when you are dry.[1]"

Bit of weathering to do then see if I'm happy with everything and probably call her done
