"If you're lucky enough to check out the October issue of ST: The Magazine, it has an article about the E-E and how it is equipped with Type XII phaser arrays."

I always thought The Magazine was about as canon as the Fact Files. Or was this article written by Sternbach or someone?

Yes, you're despicable, and... and picable... and... and you're definitely, definitely despicable. How a person can get so despicable in one lifetime is beyond me. It isn't as though I haven't met a lot of people. Goodness knows it isn't that. It isn't just that... it isn't... it's... it's despicable.

No, it's part of their monthly briefings. They also have the ship's library not seen in the final cut of ST: I.

However, there is a nice interview with Sternbach about his work over the years on Star Trek, and it includes some drawings he made of things he designed such as the Negh'Var and Galor.

One last interesting thing to note about the E-E tactical article is that it shows a picture of the supposed layout of the shields. They extend in a straight line from nacelle to nacelle at the stern instead of curving back in...also, if you look closely at the actual photos of the E-E Main Engineering, notice the diagram of the ship on the "pool table" master systems display console. It's from the original design of the E-E, not the final one (note the Bussard collectors).

If the Enterprise D had type X and Enterprise E had type XII what happened to type XI phasers?

They're on the Cobra Mark II.

(If no-one gets that reference, can I get an award?)

Type-XI are/were used on planetary defense platforms and stations. Assumably because they were the only locations that could provide the energy production necessary to power them.

I'd have to see the ST: Magazine myself to believe that Type-12... and if ST: Magazine did have that I would have to ask where they got it from. If it is from that worthless poster then I'm trashing my stack of ST: Magazine.

Isn't that a teeny, tiny bit over the top?

That would be wrong?

Does anybody know how to get something back out of a mailbox?

Well, i don't mean to brag, but I have Type XV phasers. They're in a storage unit downtown. I got them off of Admiral Janeway's shuttlecraft.

Hey what's Starfleet going to do with all that future sh*t the silly b*tch brought back with her? Voyager still had Batmobile shields when it got back. Maybe they'll hide them to avoid breaking the temporal Prime D. Or maybe they'll just use them.

They should reclassify Voyager as a Bat-Cruiser or a Bat-Explorer.

Actually i read that Voyager was a Light Cruiser, but that was before the show ever premiered. Explanation given (or inferred by me). The old Constitutions were heavy cruisers, but since Starfleet ships are bigger in general now, they would actually be considered Medium Cruisers, or more simply Cruisers in the face of the Heavy Cruiser quality Excelsiors, which are likewise not big enough to be Explorers by current standards. So Voyager would be smaller crew than a Constitution, so therefore a Light Cruiser. Logical? Well throw logic out the window if it isnt canon.

Hey how come the future Nova didnt need its extra deflector dish?! Maybe Harry doesnt like unnecessary redundancy. Or he's just wistful for the days when ships hid their saucer deflectors like a dirty little secret. (Remember ol' 1701 with the three circles right on the front, or the Galaxy's four window sized deflectors?)
