I see where you're coming from, Unicron
. It's like don't tell me there are four other flavors of cake, and these are their names, if you're not going to let me eat them?
That said, I do somewhat admire the effort to try to expand the universe via this method beyond what budgetary constraints allow.
The problem with kitbashes, inherently, is that they're, well, kitbashes. Things are scaled weird. We can either choose to think of logical in-universe reasons why, or disregard certain details. (The latter being a slippery slope.) Given that the Trieste
was not seen onscreen, it makes that choice here somewhat easy.
