Heh, very nice although I must confess to being reminded of:

"Only the size of my head."

I guess Scotty and his staff got the cosmetic damage repaired pronto because of this:

Kirk: I don't want us looking like a trap Mr. Scott when we escort the new Chancellor back to Qo'noS. With what we've just accomplished, the occasion demands it!

I would think the reason why the Enterprise-A is getting the honors as you depict here is because Gorkon's daughter (can't remember her name) may have decided 'First ship here to fight the traitor Chang, and ultimately deliver the killing blow to him gets the honor of escorting me and my ship back home. You've proven to me Kirk that despite your feelings, you're not afraid of change, as was my father.'

I can see that being possible. Her name was Azetbur.

Looking great Dave, beautiful lighting. I was going to mention the battle-damage but others have already done so. But it's a beautiful image, even with the missing damage, you've done yourself proud with this one. :)
