Sorry, that is NOT "fraud", which means deception for financial or personal gain.
I have to presume you are referring to my earlier post.

If the publisher of this tech compilation issue (from this TNG fanzine) features a schematic where the NCC-1701-A from the original Shane Johnson bridge graphics is covered by the Enterprise-D and presented in a poor copy quality that suggests this might be genuine TNG Art Department material (somehow secured from a copy of a copy etc.), it most definitely is "fraud".

Whether to push the sales numbers of this fanzine (financial gain) or whether somebody wanted to push the "transwarp" idea (personal gain) is irrelevant, but "fraud" it is.
