Re: USS Aventine

This may be better suited for TrekLit, but there are no design specifics set for it yet according to an earlier post in TrekLit.

Re: USS Aventine

Well it's new big and shiny... and has quantum slipstream (or the potential for it), so I'm imagining it like a bigger version of this (from next year's Ships of the Line):



And the novel specified it's shuttlebay 1 is on deck 12...

Re: USS Aventine

^^When I first saw that SotL calendar image back at Shore Leave, my first thought was that maybe it could be the Aventine. But then I got a closer look at it and saw that it's maybe only a few times the size of a runabout.

I just noticed... how come that ship has a tailfin?

Me too. I was a little bit disappointed when I realised it scale was wrong, but it's stuck in my head as the basis for how I see the Aventine.

Did you spot the tiny wing at the front too?

Interesting. Aside from the scale, not bad. I don't know that I'm 100-percent sold on this, but I could see it working.

Yeah, make it bigger, add some kind of elongated saucer (maybe arrowhead-shaped) to the front, and for Cochrane's sake get rid of the fins, and you'd have something.

That's really funny. I had the same thoughts--that the ship's basic configuration was a good direction for the Aventine.

It could be that it's a proof-of-concept model; a smaller-scale version of the full ship for testing purposes like the Constitution mock-up seen in the picture for December.

It needs a couple more fins for style.
