Was there any information given about these ships in the Fact Files? Background, etc?

Thanks,

Although I can't be sure, there probably wasn't any other info. Sites like Star Trek: Expanded are usually pretty thorough with that and it mentions nothing other than the source (Fact Files). Also, the level of ship-obsession here would have rooted out every drop of info about those ships. Though sometimes something can fall through the cracks.

[OK, trying to translate the text:]

'For this class there are currently the prototype, USS Akira NCC-62497, as well as USS Thunderchild NCC-65549, USS Rabin NCC-63293 and USS Spector NCC-63549, which helped to rescue the Prometheus-class prototype vessel captured by romulans in 2374.'

(Interesting to not that the Akira has the ability to seperate, according to the factfiles.)

What about the U.S.S. Jupiter... was that just for the CCG?

The USS Jupiter appeared in Armada, and was later given the NCC-71627 (?) registry for the CGC.

Close Ultra Magnus. The Registry of the U.S.S. Jupiter is NCC-71267.

It (the card) also said the ship was commanded by Captain Satelk, obviously a Vulcan. And it was equipped with the experimental Chain Reaction Pulsar, the standard Akira-special weapon in the game.

So now we have proof that the Fact Files are plain-old making stuff up.

Or, as everyone else can call it, conjecture for missing data.

...which would be fine if they called themseves the Star Trek Conjecture Files.

Next thing, those names get slid into someone's shiplist and get passed from person to person eventually precipitating a wild Trinculo-hunt for the actual appearance of ships by those names. Or a ship with the same registry appears in Nemesis and people start howling about how Berman hates tech fans and is destroying canon.

Or they were given information that we don't have.
There have been a bunch of Akiras seen in DS9 & Voyager, has anyone been able to get a registery off of any of these? they couldn't all have been the Thunderchild.

...and it begins.

We know-know-know that Foundation doesn't arbitrarily make up names and registries.

It's fine for the Fact Files to make up names and numbers, in the same way that it's fine for the Encyclopedia to make up class designations and registries. The idea is that these official reference materials can be a source of additional info where the shows are lacking. This is no big deal. With us as starved for new ship info as we are, I wish more of this were going on.

Give us new ships! Give us new ships!
