Better!

Now, what exactly are those big gun-looking things on each side?

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

They look like Saratoga-style sensors to me.

Nice work, BTW, Ian! I've been following this thread for some time and I really like what you've put together (and I've seen a LOT of these in my time!) Would you be agreeable to allowing me to put these on my Ship Schematics Database at some point?

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Indeed looks much better

Also i think your all forgetting that in the ep the Saratoga was in Phaser Like beams were coming out of those long pods which makes me think the Saratoga was a Normal Miranda then refitted with those pods later in its life.

Thanks. I didn't know those were sensors; all the plans I've seen of the Saratoga are unlabeled, and I haven't read much about it. I don't really remember what it did on screen, either.

By the way, I love your site. I've referred to it many times over the years.

So you're saying they are really beam weapons, and not sensors?

Would someone be willing to dig up a screen shot? I don't know exactly when it was that the ship was on screen.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

P.S. I just looked through the screencaps on TrekCore at the beginning of DS9: Emissary, and found nothing helpful; I don't have any DS9 on DVD.

Actually, the phasers were coming out of the lower planetary sensor dome, as seen here:

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

One more and I'm taking a break for a day or two.

The USS Samuel B Roberts [NCC-2413] is christened after the destroyer escort of the same name which fought in the Battle of Samar for the 20th century United States Navy during Earth's World War II.

The ship and crew were part of a task force assigned to protect the flank of ships landing American amphibious forces during the Battle of Leyte. Communication errors resulted in the task force being cut off from reinforcements and facing a far superior opposing force of battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy.

Despite being heavily outgunned, the Roberts threw itself at the enemy vessels, scoring multiple hits at extremely close range and remaining engaged for over an hour before finally being sunk. The shipbecame known as "the destroyer escort that fought like a battleship".

Well armed, fast, and known for both reliability and ease of maintenance, the Roberts-class destroyers are popular with their crews. Ironically, the most ardent enthusiasts are Andorians, who seem drawn to the "romance" of the class-ship's story, and a large number of the 70 Roberts-class hulls serve in units of the so-called "Blue Fleet".

With the angle of that particular shot, it could be a phaser bank right in front of the dome.

Better angle (from a second or so before the first cap)
