In its default configuration, a large secondary deflector and specialized set of sensors and emitters fuel the ship's scientific pursuits. However, by reversing its orientation, the ship's systems are redirected into a bulwark of defensive tactical capabilities that would not be out of place on its battlecruiser peers.
What, and I cannot stress this enough, the actual fuck?

My brain is trying to wrap itself around the logic of that description. The closest I can get is that the x-plus axis has the sensors and the x-minus axis has the shields… but even that makes no sense whatsoever. If they’re trying to say that it’s a science ship when flying “forward” and a warship when flying “backward”…. Well that’s just insane.

Those dinks come up with the dumbest bullshit to justify gameplay.

Anyway, obviously the big head part is the bow. It's got the fucking name & hull number on it.

Wait, they really called it a "science destroyer"? That's worse than the "fast attack frigate" & "penetration cruiser" nonsense from movie-era fandom.

But...they are right. Their description certainly destroys science.

Wait....it's a space mullet. Science in the front, battle in the rear.

Were this the Original Universe at all, I would simply note that in the 32nd Century, the Federation powers their vessels with the rotating corpses of earlier starship designers.

Yes, we get it, you hate everything in Star Trek that’s come out since 2001. [Roll Eyes]

Dude, are you okay?

I mean, just on this page we have this STO (a Trek *game*) concept sent up hilariously (and with well-placed cursing) by Lee and Shik, with you yourself calling it "insane", but I join in the pile and suddenly it’s unacceptable hatey hatefulness with fanciful fake continuity of hateyness thrown in?

Uncool.

(The most ironic part about your strange reaction is that we're talking about my favorite 32nd Century Discoverse design.

Sheesh.)

Sorry. The conversation was referring to the silly STO game mechanics, and I read your comment “were this the original universe at all” to refer to all the current shows and some other arguments that were overdone a while back.

In 'That Hope is You, Part 2' there is also a USS Yam... - unfortunately only the first three letters of the name are visible. If I had to guess, I would bet my money on the USS Yamato or USS Yamaguchi.

You can find the USS Yam... on the right side of the screen where the USS Discovery is returning to Starfleet HQ and the USS Nobel (Noble?) is on the left side.

Maybe root vegetables are extremely important in the far future, and it's just USS Yam.

At this point I can no longer rule this out for Discovery ...

Yam is a perfectly viable Asian last name, so...

I kinda want to go out and buy a yam, and carve a couple warp nacelles into it… it wouldn’t look all that out of place in the 32nd century.
