Re: TOS' U.S.S. Valiant and Farragut....

I always though Kirk's Farragut was Constitution-class; according to the Star Trek Chronology he was posted there in 2254 - nine years after the original launch of Enterprise.

Perhaps the SS Conestoga was based on the design of the SS Valiant, launched 4-5 years before and a proven spaceframe - a logical idea given that at the time (2069) building starships was a relatively untried and expensive business with limited expertise.

Food for thought: perhaps the USS Valiant was the same class of vessel as our new friend the USS Kelvin?
