Well, as long as were talking about Mirandaized ships, here's my Tolkien, a Mirandaized Ambassador:

There was a very nice Nebula-ized Ambassador a while ago, known as the Apollo class. Does anyone know where that is now? Speaking of the Sovereign, I'll bring up my ORIGINAL Sovereign picture again that I DLed from the AOL Star Trek Forum.

Hey! I had the idea of a Sovereign like that a while ago, except it had no secondary hull. Kind of like the Centaur.

TSN: Not bad. I would have expected a smaller engineering hull, but now I like the compact arrangement.

Fed: You're talking about the ship that can be seen when the Saratoga explodes in "Emissary"? It was commonly supposed to be the Apollo class Gage, although the Encyclopedia suggests that the Vulcan ships in "Unification" are Apollo class ships. Anyway, the ship in "Emissary" does look like a Mirandaized Ambassador.

What, you mean the wrecked saucer? How could that look like anything?

Hey all! I noticed you guys talkin about a NEBULAized AMBASSADOR, and I saw exactly what you're talking about at Wolfpak359.
Check it out!

At least, there is a saucer and a pair of nacelles. If the Apollo class is supposed to be a Mirandaized Ambassador, I could believe it is the depicted ship.

BTW: Who said that the Apollo is an Ambassador modification in the first place?

There aren't any nacelles, just wreckage. They wouldn't build a new model only to have it show up once briefly, and then never again.

Weird thing. . . I found an old message I sent to The Vorlon in which I commented on how the Monarch is actually a Nebulaised Sovereign, not a Mirandaised one! It was that that actually started me working on another Sov variant, working name the Regency class, which then had its concept hijacked by the Mirandaised Akira I mentioned in another thread. . . and then went off in yet another direction entirely. All this without putting a single thing on paper! 8)

I do see the nacelles and I think it's an Ambassador saucer turned upside down, so the ship is probably Mirandaized. Some day someone will come up with an Apollo class schematic, maybe in the Fact Files. Then I'll have to revise my current opinion about the Apollo.

ONCE AGAIN: Why would they build a new Ambassador saucer, attach nacelles, and put it in the corner where nobody would see it?!

It's junk! It's not meant to be anything! In fact, The Making of Deep Space Nine implies that it's supposed to be the wrecked saucer of the Melbourne!

And the Vulcan ships from "Unification" were Apollo-class, according to the encyclopedia.

I blew up the pic and flipped it over, and it looks a lot more like an Excelsior saucer - very blunt-edged, not at all the sharp edge of the Ambassador.

Frank: More than half of the Melbourne's saucer was blown away, while only "small" parts of the saucer in question are missing. Of course it's junk like anything in BoBW and Unification. They would never build a detailed model and waste it in such a way. It was only one suggestion that it could be an Ambassadorish ship.
