If I could include any ships I want for TNG-R, I would replace two of the Oberths with something new (or maybe the Raven?) and perhaps two or three of the Excelsiors with Probert's Ambassador.

I'd like to see more Ambassadors floating around in any hypothetical TNG-R. Seems to me if the Excelsior is still around, the Ambassador *must* be. FFS, the Ent-C was only a destroyed, what was it, 27 years before "Yesterday's Enterprise"? 22?

I always figured the Ambassadors were off doing what they were built to do: exploring. Minus the few we saw or that were mentioned,

We did see the Excalibur and Zhukov, iirc, so they were floating around in TNG, some of them even on screen.

I reckon it's only a matter of time before a fan does their own TNG:R project, if it hasn't happened already. But to be done well it'd have to be a community project, or be very time consuming for an individual. And that's just a few episodes, nevermind 7 seasons. It'd really hinge on whether they used existing models or started from scratch.

Actually, I just want the most glaring errors to be corrected in a TNG-R. For instance, a phaser beam coming out of a torpedo launcher is a no-no.

One of the thing's I'd change is substitute the HUGE Klingon BoPs with something new (to match the K'Vort dialogue) and/or a Vor'cha.
As for the reason why we saw more Excelsiors than Ambassadors floating around is simple. There's probably about five times as many Excelsiors in the fleet as there are Ambassadors and most of them are on workhorse duty, so of course they're the ones ferrying people and stuff to the frontier.
Even then, most of the time it was the Hood anyway, which seams to have been assigned as the Enterprise's backup.

Well, maybe the Enterprise actually did have a small associated flotilla of support vessels. Don't most ships IRL? Of course it's funny they never mentioned it... [Razz]

I'd want to see the first two seasons cleaned up visually. Those black cards pasted to the glossy stuff on set to block the c-lights, for instance, need to be edited out; and I don't know if they make the whole thing look a bit more "modern"...I mean, I don't know if they were using cheaper film or if it as just late-80's cameras, or if the film has deteriorated, or what, but something seems off to me in those early eps.

I'd like to see the awful profile shots of starships that were used in the first few seasons go away. Watch the Enterprise go right. Now watch the Enterprise and another ship go left. Later seasons used much more dynamic shots that the earlier seasons couldn't match, either because of technical skill or budget constraints.

Just as long as it's none of the First Contact ships.

Are you telling me you wouldn't like to see a Steamrunner or a Saber show up here and there? Shame on thee.

I kind of like Steamrunner. Looks squat and tough.

Well ,if we follow some peoples hypothesis that Steamrunners, and other First Contact ships are refitted older, but recent designs, them appearing in TNG-R would make sense. But, a Cheyenne, or New Orleans would be nice too.
