I have a few questions on the updated list post two pages back. I skimmed over the list and found some interesting things I would like to be clarified.
1. USS Enterprise D - Was it not docked at Deep Space Nine in "Emissary"? If so I think you should add "Emissary" to your list as one of the appearances.
2. USS Enterprise E - When and how was it mentioned in "Life Lines" (VOY)?
3. USS Essex - In the past I remember an Ambassador Class USS Essex being mentioned somewhere. Was it canonical or not? It's just a vague memory I have.
4. USS Hiroshima - This is the first I have heard of this starship being omitted from the Encyclopedia. Do we have an explanation as to why it was omitted, and were any of the CGI models on-screen labelled Hiroshima?
5. USS Lantree - When was it mentioned in Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country?
6. USS Voyager (NCC-73602) - When was this ship mentioned in "A Time to Stand"? If it was given this registry, someone should be shot.
It would be great to get those things clarified.
1. You're absolutely correct. I'll update.
2. I can't remember specifically. That came from Spike's list, where I got a lot of my episodes from.
3. No. There has been an Ambassador-class Exeter and an Excalibur, but no Essex. Thus was the basisi for a small theory of mine that you can read about in the thread labeled 'Museum Ship.'
4. As far as I know, it was a 'mistake' in the second Encyclopedia, and wasn't in FC, but I'm just including it to be as complete as possible.
5. The Lantree was listed on a display chart on the Enterprise bridge in TUC.
6. This is a somewhat controversial issue. In the Deep Space Nine Technical Manual, there are several ships depicted which are 'kitbashes,' or ships made from bits and pieces of others. Among them are these:
(a.) A Constitution-class Variant.
(b.) An Excelsior-class Variant.
(c.) An Intrepid-class Variant seen in several DS9 episodes including "A Time to Stand," to which the DS9 Art Department refers to as the Yeager-class.
(d.) Another Excelsior-class Variant, seen in DS9 "A Time to Stand" as the U.S.S. Centaur NCC-42043
(e.) An Excelsior/Constitution-class Variant, seen also in "A Time to Stand" as the U.S.S. Curry NCC-45617
(f.) An Intrepid/Constitution Variant.
Now, while only three of these could be clearly seen in the episode "A Time to Stand," Mike Okuda has told inquirerers(sp?) that all of these designs were in fact built as models and filmed for the episode.
It just so happens that that last one, the Intrepid/Constitution variant, bears a striking resemblance to the original Intrepid-class study model built in pre-production for VOYAGER. Pictures of it appeared in The Art of Star Trek:
Some people have theorized that it is likely that it was that study model which was used for background shots in "A Time to Stand," and that it is what the picture in the DS9TM represents, rather than a completely new-built model. I happen to agree with them, and so that is why it is listed as it is in my shiplist.
