Re: Uses of the Reliant studio model in Trek

I suppose I might be in the opposite myself, as the Oberth hull seems to be one of the few that looks specifically modular and also cheap to produce. I can easily see where it would have led to a number of different variants that could perform specific missions. It's hard to judge timetables for construction and how long an "average" lifespan is. 80 years might be a stretch, but I know of one other franchise (Battetech) where it's not uncommon for some designs to see decades or even centuries of service, in different models and variants.
