(This info was posted in the Wolf 359 thread, but I just thought I'd make a new one to make sure everybody finds out...)

Captain Kyle Amasov of the TrekBBS e-mailed Gary Hutzel to find out the name of the mystery Galaxy from the DS9 Calendar. Hutzel replied that it was labeled as U.S.S. Ronald D. Moore, named for the famous SF admiral (naturally... [Wink] ) that we've heard about on all those dedication plaques.

Here's the BBS thread where it came up:

It can be added to your shiplists (or not, if you choose, since we still have no confirmation of it ever being in an actual episode) accordingly.

Well, we can be 99.99% sure this ship has never appeared onscreen, so its a delectable footnote to the holy writ of canon, but delectable footnote nonetheless.

Unforunate Coincidence of the week:

Yeah. In the end, it'll probably be about the same level as the Trinculo on the canon scale. Still interesting to know that someone actually labelled a model like that at some point, though.

I noticed that the registry of the USS Ronald D Moore has a registry lower than the Galaxy itself. Is it possible to have a class ship with a higher registry number. I know that the Constitution Class had this but since then I have always assumed that registry numbers were sequential.

If this ship is "official" could this Ronald D Moore be one of the ships that was not constructed in the first batch of ships. Instead the registry number was reserved for a galaxy class vessel.

Here is the text of Hutzel's e-mail, and a link to the pic he sent with it, courtesy of Capt. Kyle:

quote:
I am delighted to help you with your question.

Because the original composition is an 8x10 inch
negative, the name is clearly visible if you blow it up sufficiently.

The ship in question is the U.S.S. Ronald D. Moore, registry # NCC-70564.

This is, coincidentaly, the name of both a famous Star Fleet Admiral and a writer on a certain 20th century television show.

Attached is a close-up for your records.

Cool closeup. Sadly it's still docked at a location where there's no docking port [Smile]

Cool! So... What are we looking at here? I mean, is it the CGI E-D? The ILM revamp of the model? It looks like the latter to me, since the CGI model usually doesn't have the painted aztec scheme on it...

I can't say for sure. The general opinion was that it was CGI, but it damn sure looks like the physical model to me...

The model was last labeled as the Trinculo, though, so the name & reg might have been manipulated digitally for the pic or something to that effect.

Here's the full shot:

Hellooooo, new wallpaper!

And as for the Moore being docked all funny, remember that the USS Venture was docked in the same way, albeit to the other side. Obviously, later model Galaxy class ships incorporated a docking hatch on the side axes of the saucer. [Wink]

Which makes a whole lot of sense in case the saucers are docked by themselves or if both main airlocks are damaged or disabled.

I thought we'd established it was physical, seeing as Gary Hutzel was responsible.

The phaser array and the lifeboat hatches don't look right for it to be either Galaxy physical model. I'm guessing the Moore is CGI. The Defiant is certainly the physical model though.

The main phaser strip looks annoyingly smooth.

In the same vein, many of the windows seem clearly (at least to me) to be textures and not physically indented into the surface of the hull. For a small pic, that would be fine, but that close up, it appears to be quite certainly CGI.

I know nothing about 3-D modeling, so this is just a semi-educated guess.
