[QUOTE]Originally posted by Dukhat: [QB] I dropped an email to Mike Okuda about the subject; specifically, if any influence with registry or conjectural class descriptions went into the kitbashes. Here's what he had to say: "Those kitbashes were pretty much built and labeled at random. The VFX department put in a lot of extra time and effort into assembling those models, and they had a little fun with the names. (A few of us from the art department even lent a hand.) Some of the ships had authentic-sounding names, but most of them had gag names. One might reasonably argue that Starfleet might have named a bunch of their ships after historic figures whose names happened to be the same as several of the Star Trek visual effects department staff members. On the other hand, some of the ships had rather impolite names that Starfleet would (probably) not have approved on any of its ships. In any case, everyone worked so hard that I felt it would not be appropriate to attempt to impose "authentic" names or numbering, especially since there was no chance that any of it would be legible on screen." -Mike So it looks like the Centaur and the Curry do not, and will never have, official class designations, so my hypothesis about the Rennaissance and Mediterranean classes may be as good as anyone else's ideas. I am curious, though, as to what those impolite names were for some of the ships...
