This looks like a great start to your proposal for the Huron-class Destroyer. It has been some time since someone outside of the Department of Research & Development has brought forward a starship design for consideration. I particularly appreciate the work you've done to develop deck listings and operating statistics as it is not always easy to accomplish this with new starship designs, especially ones we've never really seen on our television of movie screens before. We will surely get the nitty-gritty of hashing out statistical details later. Still, the work you've put into this so far is to be commended. I would certainly love to see more.

It appears from the information you've provided that we are looking at a starship design first introduced during the late twenty-third century (otherwise known as The Movie Era - TME) with most of the vessels having been phased out, replaced, or destroyed by the middle of the twenty-fourth century. This means we will have to be looking at everything through the lens of that time period in Federation Starfleet history.

One challenge this presents is that our starship classifications (i.e. Corvette, Frigate, Cruiser, etc.) are based on starship designs of the mid to late twenty-fourth century. This means the Huron-class could be classified as a Frigate even though it does not meet the official length requirements just as the refit Constitution-class design is classified as a Cruiser even though it does not meet the official length requirements. In other words, we may not have to worry about adjusting the starship classification for the Huron-class unless it doesn't make sense relative to other vessels of the time period (i.e. refit Constitution-class, Excelsior-class, Miranda-class, etc).

That said, I don't think I would have any issue considering the Horatio-class as a possible Engineering Support Vessel and/or starship tug. When I think of the kind of vessel you're describing, I imagine an image used by another simming community as the Grommet-class Support Vessel found here. I know it doesn't come close to matching the shape and design of your proposal, but it does appear to be capable of serving as both starship tug and support for the Horatio-class. Is this sort of what you had in mind for the Huron-class design?

Yes, I see it as a lingering class into early TNG such was the Miranda/Oberth. I don't think the images match the deck listing, as the TUG pictured is more similar to Oberth class, basically the Huron has nacelle on the X,Y axis as opposed to the normal Y,Z axis, if that makes sense.

I guess I am a little confused by the X,Y Axis reference. Are you referring to a nacelle structure such as [url=http://www.shipschematics.net/startrek/images/federation/destroyer_apollo_ref.jpg]this[url]? Found this design over at starshipschematics.net and wasn't sure if it was more in line with what you were thinking.

Yes that's the configuration.... the nacelle I had is a bit different and reflects a generation after the Apollo as I see it.
Techincally, the nacelles have depth to them in 3-dimensions, but this diagram should show the two most prevalent...
I suppose its more "X" vs "Z" axis and is arbitrary depending on positioning of the vessel, but if "0" was attributed value of the front of the nacelles then you'd have this relation shown below:

The images of the ship should differ from viewable angles: UP/DOWN is X, Forward/Reverse is Y, Side/Side is Z
(-Y and +Z) is kind of a reverse bringing the bridge to the left... (-X and + Z) is a bank to the Left.

My guess is in the real deal it would help to have directional changes in the Heading display
