Well, unless I'm counting wrong, there are 27 ships which tallies with "18 plus 9 more on the way."

Anyone care to take a guess at what's there? We know for sure there are 2 Galaxy-class; 2 Defiant-class; 1 Sabre; 1 Prometheus. . . several Excelsiors, 1 Akira, at least 3 Mirandas I can see. . .

The siluette is pancake-flat, so it's probably a Defiant.

Or maybe a Cheyenne?

As regards the Nebula contingent, I say to you "duh," sir, "duh!" Next you'll be complaining I haven't included any Borg spheres in my count. I see at least one. 8)

The ship that looks tantalisingly interesting is the one above the sphere, to the left of the Galaxy: at first glance it looks like a New Orleans or even an Ambassador. It's a Nebula (I think) but one can dream. . .

Well, since you yourself mentioned the totally unknown Galaxy-class....

What is that ship to the left of the Nebula-class you mentioned?

Shit! Made a mistake. That's not a Miranda second in from the top right, it's a Prometheus. Sorry.

What I find strange is the position of the ships. We have ships that are going from left to right, right to left, side to top, and side to bottom. Only two ships are firing weapons. The majority of the fleet appears to be idle.

Ugh...this is just plain terrible.

And there are actually 28 ships because I keep forgetting to count the one firing the phaser beam. . .

Not me. Some Brit. There's a new Usenet group which features SF/Fantasy-related artwork including screencaps.

Oh, yeah: here's the link to a full listing of Endgame screencaps. There's some amazing stuff in there. . . Indices too. Check out the very last image in the list! 8)

Seeing as how I was totally disappointed with Endgame, I really didn't care about doing this type of thing. But now that it's been a few months, I'm willing.

1: Defiant
2: Galaxy
3: Miranda
4: Unable --- I'm going to say that it's an Excelsior, like the one to it's left, but the phaser beam blocks it. If that's not the case, then 4 has a companion ship to it's leftas well.
5: Excelsior
6: Galaxy
7: Galaxy
8: Galaxy
9: Miranda --- Centaur
10: Defiant

The one marked Sabre is a Galaxy Class [one could wish though].

These are all old school ships [save the Defiant and Prometheus]. I would say that the majority are ships that were late in getting back to Utopia Planitia from the war-ships which were only partly completed, or those ships that are new builds, or those ships that were getting refits/repairs.

I'm surprised there are no new school ships here [the Prometheus was probably stationed at UP, and those Defiants could be the new Mars Defense Perimeter ships], Akira, Norway, Steamrunner, and Sabres are built at Utopia Planitia. What are the odds that Utopia Planitia only had old school ships partly ready [and rushed launched them] at any specific point in time?

Notice that they all have the same "up is to Polaris" orientation? Jezuz - talk about "two-dimensional thinking".

Akira and Sabre:

http://www.mikes-images.com/misc/voyager/images/voyager1%20mq%20291raw.jpg

Also, note the number of Galaxies in this fleet shot - up to nine of them. It's interesting to note that the production of this class has probably been significantly increased since the Days of TNG.. Prossibly as a result of the War. We can combine this with two other bits of evidence:

1) In the Utopia Planitia flashback in "Relativity", we see at least three GCS in dock, with at least one of them in the process of being built.

2) In one of the fleet shots in "Sacrifice of Angels", we see up to eight Galaxies. There's also the infamous mention of "Galaxy Wings".

It really seems that the Galaxy Class has gotten a real boost in production, despite what happened to the Enterprise, Oddysey and Yamato. Having NINE of them in one place on extremely short notice in "Endgame" is kinda odd. However, you could say that most of them were the batch under construction at Utopia Planitia at the time... Alternatively, they could be the leftover batch of "Sternbach Galaxies" that were finished on the quick for the Dominion War, that were at UP in the process of being converted back into Explorers.
