I find it quite odd that the Centaur was not given a specific number and class when alot of other, never-seen vessels were. I mean, the Centaur was a big fixture to all us ship-geeks in that episode. It was clearly seen and shown up close for quite a while, relatively speaking. Even the Curry got a number and it only did a single fly-by. I have the same problem with the Raven's and the Insurrection Scoutship's missing info.

Aban: I agree. All they had to say was "Captain Sisko, there's a Federation ship approaching...Rennaissance class...it's the U.S.S. Centaur!"

*sigh* As if that'd ever be likely.

Especially since the script, in all likelihood, never mentioned what type of ship the Centaur was. It would just be the art department who deceided "hey, instead of using the Excelsior again, let's through lots of bits together, and use whatever we get. Cool eh"

Well at least it makes US happy when there's a new design instead of a re-use of the Reliant, even if no other info is forthcoming other than the model itself.

Well I don't even mean they had to say it on screen. I mean, the Ent E's class wasn't even said on screen (IIRC). But I would've thought they would've come up with class names for ships like the Scoutship (the bloody thing didn't even have a name!!), the Raven, and the Centaur. After making up all the names in the encyclopedia for ships we never even saw (and barely heard of), you'd just think they would've gone to the trouble for ships that we definitely and clearly saw on screen.

It's funny how over the past coupla years they've become really lax about even making up the classes and registries of ships mentioned on the shows. . . the new Saratoga, the Sentinel, the Grissom, the Strata and so on from DS9; The Billings from Voyager. . . all the Insurrection ships, plus the listing in the Enc3 of a Ticonderoga from the same film which as far as we know never appeared or said in dialogue!

It seems to coincide with a general feeling of disillusionment by Okuda - or so was implied when the Enc3 turned out to be nowhere near as good as the previous two, and that there might not be another edition. Maybe it's just the sheer volume of info. Maybe it's all these emails you keep sending him asking about the most nitpicky little things he couldn't possibly remember, that have given him the feeling "why bother?" Maybe someone should ask him how he feels about it all.

Ticonderoga? I've been meaning to ask about that. Is it, or rarther was it in a draft script or cut scene in Insurrection? I have the novel so I'll be skimming through it on the look out.
I hope that when Voyager ends and they get back to just doing movies for a while, Okuda and the like will probably go back and assign some regs & class names. Of course knowing our luck they probably won't, still we can always hope. Does anyone else think that Condor would make a cool name for the Insurrection Scout? Or maybe this is the Yellowstone-class runabout's final hull design.

Except that the Yellowstone never existed, except in Harry Kim's mind...

Wasn't it an alternative timeline, rather than a dream-sequence?

Yes. Though technically TSN is still correct, as the design hadn't been built yet, just sketched out by Harry and his friend.

I don't think that a couple of ensigns are the only people working on an entire class of starship. My understanding was that they were only responsible for the uprated engine design, this would mean that in the alternate timeline they were assigned to a project already underway. The same project could easily exist in the 'normal' timeline, but with harry's mate working on it instead of him. The fact that the ship was identical to the danube can be accounted for by saying that Yellowstone was a refit of the Danube instead of a new build, in the few years between that Voyager episode and Insurrection the ship could have been refited several times to the extent that the newbuilds were totally unrecognisable. The Danube platform could have only been a starting point, with the intention always being to change the hull design later. Sort of designing it from the inside out.

Okay, well, it's been a very long time since I saw... "Non Sequitur", was it? I think the only time I saw it was first-run, and maybe that season's summer rerun. I thought it was all in his head, though. I didn't think he actually went into an alternate timeline. Oh well. I'm probably wrong.
