Default Star Trek - Relativity WIP

I decided to have a go at re texturing this ship plus doing a render of it. Here's an outline of what I did and where I'm at. Hope you take time to read through and look forward to the input.

The three images below show:

1. The original ship
2. The new ship (no differences in the two renders other than the ships - all lighting is the same)

3. The ship under mostly white light





These three images show the ship from the show and Drex's idea of what it should look like (the third image).



As you can see, I went more towards Drex's remake while still giving a nod to the iridescence of the old. I believe it worked quite well but now I find myself a bit stumped on the image. I'm happy enough with the composition but it seems to me I am missing something on the lighting still. Any ideas on this image?

I feel that you're forgetting a little tidbit of information, bmckain: Drex' version isn't really a version at all, just the model that the original creator still had lying around. The only problem with it is that a few errors have slipped in, for example the "duck nose" not being gray. The creator addressed this as an error in the model. Just so you know

I think you're missing the nature of my WIP, looking for input on the lighting. As far as the texturing I put a fork in it cause done or not I was. This ship is a right PITA to work with on a texturing level and even on a lighting level for that matter.
