[QUOTE]Originally posted by The Mighty Monkey of Mim: [QB] Sorry to dredge this up but it hasn't been [i]too[/i] long... I researched the issue and found that the NCC-45617 registry for the [i]Curry[/i] originated here on this very board with the speculation of a member named [b]Lindsly[/b]. It does [b]not[/b] come from a newsgroup post and was [b]never[/b] quoted by Okuda, nor by any other insider. Only the name was. Said Flare member watched the episode and tried to make out the number, and that was what he/she came up with. He/She sent this information to D.J. Creighton of the [URL=http://www.cs.umanitoba.ca/~djc/startrek/]Star Trek Archive[/URL] and he accepted it without verification, and it spread from there. Needless to say, the latest DVD screencaptures have proven this to be incorrect, showing the [i]Curry[/i] with the registry of NCC-42284. NCC-42284 is the same number borne by the model of a similar configuration to the [i]Curry[/i], labeled [i]Raging Queen[/i], pictured [URL=http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/articles/ds9tm.htm]here[/URL]. This model is theorized to be the ship seen in the background of the same shots of "A Time To Stand" (DS9) where the [i]Curry[/i] is seen. My question is this: [i]What exactly is the relationship between these two models?[/i] I basically see two possibilities: [list] [*][b]The [i]Curry[/i] and the [i]Raging Queen[/i] are the same model.[/b] After being filmed as the [i]Curry[/i], its configuration was modified, more battle damage was inflicted, perhaps it was minorly repainted, and the name was relabeled but the registry was not. The model was filmed as the [i]Raging Queen[/i] and composited into the background of the shots. [*][b]The [i]Curry[/i] and the [i]Raging Queen[/i] are not the same model.[/b] They are two separate filming miniatures (perhaps built by the same indiviual[s]) that just happen to have a similar configuration and were both used in the same episode. One registry was given to both ships. [/list] I really wonder about why they have the same registry if they aren't the same model. One might say that, given the "quality" of the craftmanship present, the modeler was just lazy. But then why are there two different names? And how would they end up with two identical sets of number decals? Dukhat says he doesn't think the models are the same, but is there any sure-fire way to tell by looking? -[b]MMoM[/b] :D [b]P.S.[/b] Jason: Did you ever scan the pic? It would be nice to have a slightly clearer version. [/QB][/QUOTE]
