I am of the opinion that the Antares
-class starship is no longer a conjectural class. I believe that there is now a design for this ship. For DS9, an Antares
was built as a background ship. This ship had the registry NCC-9844, which places it below the NCC-10376 of the Hermes
. In appearance, this is a variant of the Miranda
-class with a Nebula
-class sensor pod.
