I don't see the Akira...

...but, yeah, Starfleet probably has the Galaxy-Class in full production. How long do you suppose it takes to build a ship that large once its no longer in its first production run like the Enterprise-D? Also, like the Dominion War Galaxy-Class ships, the ones in this fleet have their saucer impulse drives running. I wonder why. Any thoughts?

For those interested, you can see the Akira on the top left in this shot:

Ugh, I'm sick of watermarks. They didn't use to always be there.

Ugh...this is just plain terrible.


hahaha

The rest of the ships probably didn't understand or interpreted the admirals orders differently:
"use what ever force"...hehehehe

They were probably wondering what that "force" meant.

There are some choice shots of that megahypertranstube structure. I wonder if the capturer would mind me borrowing them...

We also have a possible Nebula class rego:

NCC-70(9/3/8)(5?)

Probably the U.S.S. Leeds NCC-70352 model.

Well, last night I re-did the image as a GIF, and re-thought some of them. How about this:

(Hope it's not too large, if so I'll change it to a link)

Of course, now I'll have to re-do it again with Mark's contributions added, although there are one or two I'm not sure about. I still think that's a Sabre. No. 3 looks more like a Klingon ship than anything else. . .

As for the extreme tooled-upedness of this fleet, makes you think. . . Maybe after the Breen attack they've been trying to keep more capital ships near to Earth. They could be making Galaxies in the stripped-down version we hypothesized were in "Sacrifice of Angels," and then fully out fir them at their leisure. . .

1. Defiant
2. Possibly a Steamrunner
3. Miranda. The "thing" on the lower left of the silhouette is a star.
4. Galaxy
5. Galaxy. Compare with the Galaxy to its right, and the one on the right side of the image.
6. Steamrunner
7. Excelsior. Check with the excelsior to its right
8. Defiant

The Defiant you have listed right above #7 is a Galaxy. Also, the Akira you have listed has its sensor protrusion too far aft to be correct. I still think it's a Nebula. And the "Sabre" in the lower left is also a Galaxy. I really don't think the CGI guys kept track of what ships were where in the shots they made - they just made up some relatively simple shots on the quick. I don't think that there are an Akira or Sabre in the big pic at all.

Wait, the Leeds was never made into a CGI model. It was the actual studio model used. That ship maybe the ones used in the DS9 battle sequences or the one the Prometheus blew up.

So, all of the CGI Nebbies are called "Leeds"? Great...

That Nebula is the USS Bonchune NCC-70915...which was destroyed by the USS Prometheus in "Message In A Bottle". It appears they have yet to change the CGI model (although they removed all the stuff from it that said USS Honshu).

Looking at the length of the name, it appears that the name is Bonchune, and not Bogue as so many thought it really was.

which was destroyed by the USS Prometheus in "Message In A Bottle"

We have no proof that the USS Bonchune was destroyed in that episode. It is highly possible it was merely disabled as the explosions we saw were similar to the explosions that Deep Space Nine went through from the Dominion/Cardassian attack. Anyone else agree?

IMHO #3 is the Akira class seen from head on, hence the Klingonish look. #9 is a Defiant class seen flying towards the right in a slight bank towards the camera. #10 looks like a Defiant or Saber seen from straight on... I think... Everything else thats been IDeed looks good. The stuff thats left is gonna be pretty hard unless someone find or gets a cleaner screen cap. IDing ships from screen caps is almost always like looking for a certain needle in a big pile of needles!

I didn't think the Bonchune was destroyed by the Prometheus. They were only exchange phaser fire briefly. If you refer to the TNGTM, they talk about how the Type-X phaser, if properly used at warp has a ~30% chance of causing structural failure to the target vessel. I think that was what both ships were going for, since phaser is suppose to be useless at warp otherwise (ok, we know that rule's often broken).

I'd say the Bonchure would have suffered significant structural damage, but outright destroyed? Looked more like she was breaking off, and I have faith in Federation ships. They always put so much redundencies into their vessels that I think there would have been enough backup SIF generators to save the ship.

Towed back to the nearest shipyard for a extensive stay is more likely.
