Enterprise: Isn't it two minutes?

The Royal Sovereign class existed long before the Sovereign class, so let's just get rid of thatrumor that was broughty in here.

Why should anyone care about stuff that's not canon?

Why? I'll tell you why, Frank. It's because there can be a lot more stuff that's non-canon. If people want to make stuff up, and Enterprise would like to include fan-made Sovereign's, let him. He's not doing any harm, and it should be alright just as long as nothing's contradicted by the show.

BTW- Federation Shipmaster-The U.S.S. Bozeman II NCC-1941-A is a Roderick-class destroyer. It's the first one of the class. It used to be the U.S.S. Roderick, but it was renamed to commemorate the crew of the Bozeman. Also, the first Bozeman, NCC-1941, is permenantly docked at Starbase 12. Source-Star Trek: The Next Generation Ship of the Line

Why make stuff up, though? If you want it to be relevant, come up with your own sci-fi continuity instead of mixing up what's already established.

No, I'm not asking for cannon stuff. I was just curious as to what Sovereign's people have made up.

As I may or may not have mentioned, I'm writing/creating my own Star Trek series based on a Sovereign-class ship, aptly named Star Trek Sovereign. It takes place on the Sovereign (and I named the captain after myself). I was thinking of adding a guest appearence of other Sovereign's and was at a lost for a name.

I was referring to the comment that the Royal Sovereign was around long before the Sovereign. Since that isn't canon, it isn't a good reason to say that the Sovereign class ship wasn't called Royal Sovereign. And, actually, even if it were canon, they could still use it, since the class is Sovereign, not Royal Sovereign.

HE ASKED FOR NON-CANON AS WELL AS CANON, PEOPLE!

How do we know the Roderick was a class of itself? I remember the Roderick was mentioned...

Interstingly, like Enterprise I have been mulling over a ST:Sovereign. Basically I think we all want to sit in that brown chair and command such a smegging awesome ship as a sovereign.

On registries, you pick a number you fancy.
I personally chose NCC-75089 for the USS Sovereign, because I wanted to use the new class to kick the numbers into the 75000s since seen on Data's scout ship in Insurrection. Any number will do, since none are canon. I do insist that people try and find obcure private reasons for picking certain numbers though....

I am not a believer in the NCC-1305-E, etc stuff.
I prefer to think that only the Enterprise has been so honoured. It would explain why the endless Lexingtons and Potemkins have always had new numbers. It'd be a slight to a crew if their exploits or deaths weren't sufficiently glorious to merit a letter-suffix.

Oh, and I hate long names. Even USS Dwight D. Eisenhower is a mouthful, and tricky to rattle off in the midst of battle, or if you are talking about lots of ships engaged in a battle:

"Sir, the Grand-Emperor-Constantine-of-the-Eastern-Roman-Empire has been hit, and the Antony Worral-Tomkinson reports heavy flooding in the galley!"

It ain't practical!

Incidentally, in "Spectre" (that mirror universe novel by everybody's favorite author, Bill Shatner), the Sovereign is mentioned, as such.
No Reg. #, tho.
