So what website is everybody going to for discussing ships nowadays? Flare is the only place I go to.

Anyway, I going to start the new topic by first showing the ships shown on "the burn".

I guess this time TPTB can justify their cost saving ship recycling with Starfleet not having the resources to build new ships after the Burn.

Two of the type 5 and 8 ships also have a name and registry, but unfortunately they’re too small to make out. Hopefully Eaglemoss will release pics of the CGI models soon.

How they gonna do models with detached nacelles tho?

I’m guessing they’ll use clear plastic pylons. Unless they’ve discovered a way to bypass the laws of physics.

Type 5 had a name almost visible. A short name, 3-4 letters max with the last a S or G. In fact it looks like it could be USS Nog. It might have been the first ship so labelled, only for them to then use the name on a more prominent ship.

Type 8 has a visible registry but indistinct name. Longish, 9-10 characters - or maybe 5 hyphen 4. Another T’plana-Hath?

Worst of all is that the unnamed “Constitution-class” (the same as the Armstrong) appears to have the registry NCC-1864-M. Which can FUCK OFF FOREVER.

First off, it's transparent aluminum, which is an old technology developed in San Francisco during the 80s... you remember that year, some Commie boarded a US aircraft carrier and whalers reported a bizarre UFO.

And I keep telling you, this isn’t that universe. If anything we’re the Mirror Universe.

That was the ship, Owo was refering to as "new Constitution", wasn't it? So I guess she didn't mean "is that a new USS Constitution?" (which is kind of a dumb question anyhow) but rather is that the successor of the Constitution-class design lineage.

Not sure what the Reliant did to warrant this honour.

I think she did indeed read the name on the ship before making her statement. The fact that the actual CGI model had the registry of NCC-1864-M is meaningless, as it wasn’t meant to be seen up close, and probably had nothing to do with what the script said anyway. It was just an Easter egg.

The Type 5 is precisely the sort of way-out-there design that one would expect of a Federation 800 years out from early TNG. I'm reminded of the ST magazine blurb from 1987 about the smooth, graceful six-foot Enterprise-D model, something about aesthetics surpassing technology and producing machines man would be proud to fly.

In reality, of course, that blurb never made much sense and could only have come from an artist. However, that graceful, strangely beautiful form evokes the memory, and for a fleeting moment I can almost feel Trek the way I did so long ago.

Naturally, then, they f*** it all up with totally different ugly things right alongside a bunch of retreads of their anti-chronological 2250's-meets-First-Contact mish-mash horsecrap designs that look like they're from 2400, at best, but would've been shown as old ships from 2200 anyway.

Ugh.

I heart ships.

These are all just plain lazy as fuck. Also, always trying to connect ship name to class name bothers me. Same with reusing Intrepid as a class name; I hate that, even when real-world wet navies do it.

Most of them are meh for me. I do admit to liking the Saturn, though. I could see myself getting one if/when it comes to STO.
 
Posted by Spike (Member # 322) on :
 
So Starfleet ist still pretty much a 20th century Homo sapiens club with a touch of BLM.

Intrepid is the only class with a remotely Starfleet look. The rest are just weird shapes, more befitting for one of these cheap Syfy TV shows.

I'm impressed by the huge amount of creativity spent on the registry numbers.

There could be a good reason for a lot of the ships we’ve seen having 325xxx or even 3250xx registries - perhaps they were newly-built or about to be commissioned ships which weren’t powered up or even fuelled, and so escaped being destroyed in the Burn.

So this is what we have so far. Did I forget something?

Don’t have my list handy, but that looks about right.

NCC-325072 is the USS Hansando - the name is legible onscreen but it’s so close up you can’t tell which class it is.

There are still three classes unnamed: the flattened-capital-J-shaped ship (with four or eight nacelles if Jorg’s analysts is right) which has the 325019 reg; the four-nacelled ship; and the dual-long-nacelled one.

I think the Hansando is the four-nacelled ship (the one that looks similar to the Section 31 four nacelled ship.)
