OK, we see the model of the Stargazer in Picard's ready room, and it's yellow... could it be possible that the ship was actually painted yellow!?! OK, yeah, we've seen it in "The Battle" but, Daimon Bok did say they fixed her up. (Side note, I just had deja vu typing this post!)

Well, the photographic model for the Constellation-class starships was never painted yellow by Paramount, that much is certain. It is another matter whether the ship represented by Picard's model was painted yellow once - but this ship is not the Stargazer. It is an unnamed ship with the registry NCC-7100.

The odds are, the yellow color is no more significant than the silvery finish of some Constitution-refit tabletop models seen in TNG, or the coppery surface of the wall-relief ships in the Observation Lounge in early TNG.

It may even be that there never was a ship registered NCC-7100. The model might be a gift from somebody aboard the Stargazer, say, Jack Crusher. And 7100 might be the vidiphone number of a special girl both Jean-Luc and Jack knew at Starbase 63. Or then young Wes Crusher, aged 2, built the ship for his dad and used an imaginary registry number (no, I don't mean NCC-7100i!).

Is that like 7100i*7099i*7098i*...?

Well I don't know how helpful this is, but the mirco-machine toy of the Stargazer was yellow while all other Federationships had the gray/blue color scheme.

I wonder how that will look on-screen, a gold-colored starship... I think it's not safe to fly such a thing, you got the Ferengi on your tail in no time!

Re: The micro machine Stargazer

Some Galoob rep once stated (on a web BBS they ran for a while) that the ship was yellow to mimic Picard's ready-room model.

The last time I checked, Starfleet has never painted any of their ships yellow. The Cardassians and the Kazon, yes, but not Starfleet.

Perhaps the model was aged plastic? Have you seen some of your models with little yellow spots on it? I have and it takes a while to get it off without painting.

Why is it such a difficult concept that the model was painted yellow? It's a model, it can look however they want it to. If Picard likes the color yellow, he can have a yellow Constellation in his ready room...

No, that's just what we're saying!! He has to hang a wig over it every time a flag-officer visits.

Perhaps it's made of bronze and he stole it from the Starfleet Naval museum giftshop!

And a french gendarme in a wretchedly ugly hat has hunted him for twenty years!

And there is nothing wrong with that. It's just that for some of us oldtimers it feels like the past is stalking us, with great nasty teeth.

We've run out of new things to talk about.
In all fairness, alot of the old stuff is now unavailable so its not like you can say "go read an archive".
