Which is a rambling way of asking 'when are we going to see what Paris one/Federation one/Starfleet one looks like?
Well, the vessel called Starfleet One
appeared in The Chimes at Midnight
in Myriad Universes
Volume II. It was just a shuttle, and the scene was set in the mid-2280s, so presumably Starfleet One
resembled one of the shuttles from Star Trek IV
or Star Trek V
. However, that novel was set in an alternate timeline.
appears in a fan series and has never been referred to in the novels.
has only ever been referred to in one novel, A Singular Destiny
. I'd be interested in seeing what it looks like, too. Personally, however, I like to imagine it as being a Federation government-registered but Starfleet-crewed Galaxy
-class starship, because I've always seen the Galaxy
class as being the most "stately" of the Federation's ships. I see it as being the starship equivalent of the 747. I like to imagine Paris One
as having the words PARIS ONE
written across the hull, with the Federation emblem painted in bright, vivid blue directly below it where we're used to seeing the registry number.
But before we see Paris One
, I'd really rather see the Palais de la Concorde.
