According to that MSD, the ship seems awfully well-stocked with dune buggies.

Okay, I can get behind that concept (re: the yellow strioe).

So why didn’t the USS Pasteur have blue stripes then? Or are they saying it’s just this one hitherto-unseen class which did it?

It had the cadeuceus, which maybe overrode it. Also, maybe these ships were started at the end of the war.

Or maybe, y’know, it’s a stylistic decision that changes as often as Starfleet changes its uniforms? [Wink]

That, basically. It just feels like one of these half-arsed things that gets thrown into the canon and then is never mentioned again. Like the Doctor (no, not the EMH) being half-human, that kind of thing.

To be fair, the USS Pasteur was part of a future in which the E-D was still around and had a third nacelle stuck onto it (assuming that it was even a real timeline and not something Q was implanting directly into Picard's head). I think it's okay to contradict anything shown in the future parts of AGT at this point.

Episode 4 features the California class USS Merced NCC-87075 with Science blue livery. I think this is the first NCC-registry starting with 8 (not counting the ones from TNG Conspiracy).

Captain Freeman served aboard the USS Illinois at one point in her career.

That’s quite a jump in registry numbers considering the show takes place only one year after Nemesis. I hope that when PIC season two happens and they show more Starfleet vessels, by 2500 they will have had a new registry system in place. I’d much rather see registries of NCV-25 than NCC-103564.

And next week, the USS Vancouver NCC-70492.

Yes, that’s correct: every ship in this show so far has been named after a place in the Americas. Potentially even just North America - there is a Quito in the USA, too. Come off it, CBS.

Yeah, I’m an American and even I’m getting annoyed about that. Although I’m pretty sure the Quito is an Equador class starship [Wink]

...A Tellarite named Durango? What's next, a Vulcan named Bob?

Don't you dare besmirch the good name of Bob of Vulcan.

I'm slightly annoyed at Hobbes' rather rude decision to be much more attractive than me though. That's just rude. - PsyLiam, Oct 27, 2005.

I do like the idea of the color markings that denote the function of the ship.
