The Reliant Class Advanced Light Cruiser is Star Trek Online's 25th century interpretation of a 23rd century classic. The original U.S.S. Reliant was first seen in the film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Since then, different versions of that ship have appeared in many Star Trek episodes across TNG, DS9 and VOY.
For Star Trek Online, we felt it was time to finally create a brand new design with the same form factor, and the Reliant Class is the result. The ship was designed by Hector Ortiz (here's his original concept: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/dlNX3).
I modeled and unwrapped this ship. The material was made by Adam Gibson.
