Add some warp capability to the saucer section.

Ok we need someone to put the AGT cannon on that version above and a third nacelle and those weapon-pods as well. Also the fins.

We'll call it the EPIC FANBOY CLASS. Other ships in the class include the USS RAGING BONER, USS WET DREAM, USS ZOMGWTF and the USS ALL YOUR BASES BELONG TO US.

Re: Galaxy Class Starships 20 years later, What changes Occu

SquigglyFM, I laughed my ass off at that picture.

I think you're misunderstanding the reason why *I* like the AGT Refit.

It's not because it has a *gee whiz kewl* extra nacelle, which "naturally makes it go *like, infinity + 1 fast*.

No no no. The reason I like it is because (like many others have said as well) I do find the Galaxy Class to be very top heavy. It looks like it needs bottom mass to look even.

Adding that extra nacelle, at least to my eyes, adds that needed bottom mass, so the ship looks more symmetrical, in a sense.

The cannon doesn't bother me, since the Galaxy isn't known as a really powerful warship, but the cannon gives it that battle edge it needs. I could live without it though.

I definitely don't like the antennae on the top, I could certainly do without those. Overall I like the upgrade though.

Not quite. I know it's the same ship used in "Hidden Frontier" (the website) but I found out that there's no aft shuttlebay (thanks to registering). What's the use for a stardrive without a shuttlebay?

Re: Galaxy Class Starships 20 years later, What changes Occu

The Galaxy doesn't need much tinkering. Some better sensors and computer cores, newer phaser arrays and shield generators, quantorp launchers, some tinkering with the Warp engines to make them 'greener', and refitting of the main areas such as the bridge for style reasons (to lose the 'hotel lobby' look) - nothing to it at all really.

Hmm. Well, regarding crew complement, I do recall in "Yesterday's Enterprise," that Yar said the Galaxy-class was capable of carrying thousands of troops, so I can see a comparable increase in the Starfleet universe we know if families and civilians were no longer on board. Maybe they'd become even more multi-purpose, serving as troop carriers in some circumstances. Or maybe multi-generational ships for very long-range exploration/colonization to allow crew members to marry and have children.

True enough, she does have an onboard antimatter generator.
Huh?

Definitely agree. I think the three parts of the separable USS Prometheus -- the ship with the multi-vector assault mode -- all had warp capability. So it makes sense that capability would be incorporated into the saucer section in refit Galaxy-class starships. Maybe retractable warp nacelles. -- RR

Re: Galaxy Class Starships 20 years later. What changes Occu

I always wondered why they left the yard without warp for the saucer... maybe with the Cardassian stuff going on and a fear of further escalation it was decided to put several units out there as a show of force without fully installing everything and going through extended testing.

I gather that from the several lines of dialog about possible design flaws with the ship.

It could be that some of the hypothetical empty space in the saucer could be used to mount a small low-power warp-core, additional dedicated antimatter pods and an expanded deuterium tank (same one the impulse engines feed off of.) Instead of a retractable nacelle system I'd do the KISS approach of embedded coils near the outer rim of the saucer or possibly in a raised "hump" in line with the impulse engine.

Even better. You draw plasma from the impulse drives and inject it into a secondary reaction chamber where it interacts with incoming antimatter and crystal and the resulting product is piped to the warp coils in the hump...

I need a good top-down view of the E-D saucer so I can sketch this out...

Re: Galaxy Class Starships 20 years later. What changes Occu

The Kelly class superdreadnoughts featured in the GEC Logbook was essentially the Galaxy class but with two warp engines attached to the saucer section and triple torpedo tubes forward.

And forty six decks instead of forty two thanks to a slightly deeper engineering hull.
