Do we know how many ships, what classes, etc? I believe the end of Full Circle told us the names of the ships and their captains, but I don't recall classes.
There are two Vesta-class ships, I believe, and the prototype EMV. Other than that, I don't think classes were mentioned, no.

Man, we really need an official Vesta-class design. I hate reading a book where I have no idea what a ship's class is. This bothered me with the Titan series until we got the official Titan design in 2005.

We do have a Vesta-design. It's a bit like an Excelsior in a half-shell. It's pretty impressive.

But it's not official.

Oh. I thought it was going to appear on a cover next year? Or are they going to alter it further before then?

Re: Discuss: The Voyager Fleet

Do you have a link to this somewhere? I saw an early design back when the Destiny trilogy was still coming out (so last fall), but I believe it was only preliminary.

Sorry, no. There were pictures in the magazine a few issues back. I'll go see if I can find you a link...

Edit: I'm not even sure if its not the same prelim. design you were talking about...

Can anyone help out here?

The Vesta article on Memory Beta has a picture: http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/st...4/Aventine.jpg

That the one you're referring to?

Re: Discuss: The Voyager Fleet

Didn't they say somewhere in FC that there will be nine ships in the fleet? As for classes I hope we get to see some more of the other new classes from Voyager, like the Nova and the Prometheus. I'm also hoping that they will spend some time with the crews on the other ships instead of just Voyager, and the EMV. IMO it could be interesting to see the reactions of the people who've been the DQ compared to the ones who haven't.

OK, that's the picture I've seen before.

I would also like to see a Prometheus, as it is one of my favorite classes.

With it's ability to split into three, it would be a great defensive ship.

I would hope that the fleet has at least one or two ships designed for potential battles, considering how hostile the DQ was towards Voyager for years. Something like a Sovereign, Prometheus, or Galaxy class would work. Or we could settle for a pair of Akiras.
