If anyone has been following the development of the DS9 documentary and season 8, they have released an image of Captain Ezri Dax's ship. No, not the USS Aventine. This is a new ship of a yet-to-be-announced class. Eaglemoss is also releasing a scale rendering of this ship as well.

So from what I understand, this is just from an imaginary DS9 season 8 that some people came up with 20+ years after the fact. Never mind that the ship is clearly just another unimaginative John Eaves design, but why the hell would Ezri Dax go from a counselor to a ship captain in one year without any command training whatsoever?

No, thank you.

Y'know what? I'm revoking Eaves' starship desogn license. He's done. Pack your shit & go.

It's sad when you can't really even guess at a starship's intended era anymore. This ship could show up on Discovery S2 and there'd be no way to say it didn't fit. Literally the only iffy part would be the E-E-esque Bussards, but then translucent covers over them are a thing.

Thanks, Eaves.

This animated season 8 is set years after WYLB. And is helmed by Ira Stephen Behr, FWIW.

I guess the one thing I can say in favor of the design is that, if it's supposed to be post-DS9, at least that's the one time where a ship that looks that Sovereign-esque belongs. I definitely don't care for it, though.

That said, I'm still really looking forward to the documentary.

I kinda like Eaves work on disco. However, I hate the Emmette Till... the ship not the person.

At least this looks period appropriate and better than the ship Ezri got in the novels.

I like the Vesta-class. Could stand to see it on, say, the Picard show. Have to admire how they're basically saying "A second-rate ship's counsellor ends up as a Captain? Sure, that I can buy, but that ship she's commanded in however many books, that'll have to go." That's some prime stupid you got there, boy.

Just like the Ferengi in the gorilla suit, the Aventine had to go.

Probably has something to do with IP rights, I'd wager.

Since almost everything is old, I’m posting anyhow.

Just saw this., I almost like it as it is post war at least. But why four nacelles? He asks the void.
