I read somewhere that the VFX work was completed only last week (the week before the last episode aired)- is it possible that they planned to have multiple ship classes, but due to time contrains were forced to concentrate on just one class?

Imagine if they fix that in time for the DVD release, and suddenly Riker is in command of a Vengeance-type behemoth...

I'd buy that. Look at the shot where we see all the ships from behind; they couldn't even be consistent on what to have lit up as impulse engines, the outer or inner walls. Sometines it was one of both.

I hope the Enterprise-E is still around. I don't trust them to come up with a decent looking Enterprise-F for Season 2.

According to the the talk page on the Zheng He article at MA, the ship is meant to be an Inquiry-class vessel. The others that were supposed to be there were to be Equity & Seeker classes.

So, add this on top of "Curiosity class" & I submit we take naming rights away from Michael Chabon as well.

I dunno. I might approve of a Seeker-class, but only if there's a USS Starscream, a USS Skywarp, a USS Thundercracker... [Razz]

The forward view definitely shows that the primary hull features a forward-facing shuttlebay (though some have suggested it’s a NX-style deflector, I think it’s set too far back and features a short landing/take-off apron). No amount of looking REALLY HARD at pictures of either variant suggests one saucer is more prongy than the other.

I don't think the others made it in.

So we have the Inquiry-class, then... and, what about the other nacelle variant? Would that be the Enquiry-class?

Thinking about this then, rounding it all up, all we’ve got out of this show as starship nerds is:

- One and a half new classes, if you treat the Inquiry & Enquiry (!) sub-types as one, and while we have the name of the Curiosity-class we basically only have a top view of it...
- OK, we’ll say two classes...
- Two ship names, the USSes Ibn Majid and Zheng He
- One registry, NCC-75710

Worst. Season. Ever!

Don't forget the Wallenberg-class tugships.

Also don’t forget La Sirena itself (wish we’d gotten any details at all about it), plus the new Romulan warbird.

All we know about La Sirena is that she's a Kaplan F17 speed freighter.

Ah, yes, the new Romulan warbird. That manages to be even more uninspiring than the ones we saw in NEM. And with the same nice huge picture windows in front that all ship bridges seem to have now - have always had, if the Discoprise retcon is any indication. I suspect that with a larger budget, Picard's dream wouldn't have been in Ten Forward, it'd have been on the E-D's bridge - with added picture window!

And the Romulan one is SO large, it could just as well have a nice patio and maybe a few deckchairs added on.

3 additional Starfleet ships

USS Leondegrance (from Picard's award plaques)
USS Coleman (Ijeb's assignment)
USS Reliant (technically first mentioned in the extended cut of "The Measure of a Man")

Inside Straight (Captain Crandall's ship)
Shaenor (Romulan scout ship)
