Reverend: Hey, that's great! I didn't know the Fact Files had any information at all about the Centaur, since, being a Yank, I can't get them (and I know that ST:The Magazine hasn't given any info so far). Is it possible to either post or email a scan of the Centaur's registry information?

That's a striking similarity to the NCC-62043 of the Melbourne. I always believed it was an ordinary kitbash, but is it possible they modified the Excelsior model for that?

Why not? they had already CG'd the excelsior at that point so I don't think they needed the physical model anymore. The Centaur on the other hand, was probably a kitbashed modelkit, maybe thats why its Miranda roll bar/nacelle pylon was so large.

But..ehm...didn't they sell the Excelsior model on an auction or something?.. or is this just a dream of mine interfering with reality?

Well, aside from the fact that Atomic Bombs weren't invented then, and that it's a crazy revisionist's theory,...

The extra bits on the E-B were added on to the original Excelsior model, so they didn't have to cut into the original model to show the Nexus damage.

It's also a Blackadder quote. The follow up is

"Baldrick, what exactly did God do to the Sodomites?"

"I don't know my lord, but it can't have been worse than what they did to each other."

The original Excelsior model was modified into the Ent-B for Generations. It also showed up in "Paradise Lost". A short time later, Greg Jein (possibly) built a new Excelsior model for "Flashback". Don't ask me why they didn't use the original. Maybe it was harder to remove the extra bits that they had originally thought.

Anyway, this Excelsior, and the CGI model, has been the version seen pretty much exclusively since then. It differers from the original in that the black parts of the warp engines now glow blue (like post-TNG Federation ships). I'm not sure what colour the blue bits on top are now.

Maybe the Excelsiors on DS9 were uprated and upgraded versions. But we all know that the CGI models had some mistakes on them.

Another problem I've got is, history is written by the victors. We only have the Bible's word that the Sodomites were toilet traders. And who wrote the bible? The Israelites. Who were the Israelites the chosen people of? God. Who smote the Sodomites. . . you see where I'm going with this. So for all we know, all the Sodomites ever did wrong was worship the wrong idol. Maybe Sodomy was a local word for, uh, flower-arranging. But then they get FUBARed, and consigned to history solely for surfing the chocolate speedway. Pardon the pun, but that's quite a bummer.

Sorry, where were we? )

I was just looking at a screencap of the Centaur and I noticed something interesting that might support Dukhat's theory. If you look at the underside of the centaur, you can see what looks like escape pod hatches. Now correct me if I'm wrong but weren't the Rennaissance class, (according to TNG Tech Manual) the first starships to be fitted with asrv's like thoses on the E-D. That plus the fact that this ship can easily be classified a scout, like the Aries in "The Icarus Factor" which is a known Rennaissance, I think that the centaur may well be Rennaissance-class.
Does anyone know who built the miniature? maybe this ship was ment to fit in with the Rennaissance description, the same goes for the Curry being a Mediterranean-class freighter. Do we know anything else that supports this?
