Maybe I'm missing something, but there's still one key detail we still don't know: Vengeance's registry number. This is important.
I just figured it has a skull-and-crossbones painted where the registry would normally go.
With a leading zero too! NCC-0[skull and crossbones]

I suspect the engineering section of the Vengence is the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Well, not the whole LLL. Probably.

I've seen better looking ships in the debris field of Wolf 359.

Re: SPOILER - Other Starship Revealed

I actually think the secondary hull looks like an Andorian ship.

I think it's reasonable to discuss how useful this ship would be in battle. We have seen in Star Trek how small ships are able to defeat larger ships, i.e. the Defiant against the Lakota
Didn't the Lakota almost destroy the Defiant in their fight.

There are similarities, but I find it also has a striking resemblance to the new Klingon ships seen in the movie.

It was a stalemate for both ships, but that's in another life.

The Vengeance staring down the Enterprise is a classic example of a david v goliath in space, you're never going to get a small antagonist shuttle craft sized ship to dramatically work no matter how much trek tech babble is thrown into it.

Re: SPOILER - Other Starship Revealed

The Defiant had major system failures on a number of decks and her shields were down. The Lakota was one good hit away from being space debris. The battle would end up as a Pyrrhic victory for the Defiant.

I'll bet Vengeance has one hell of a big beer brewery.

Re: SPOILER - Other Starship Revealed

As I mentioned in the other thread, for an oragnization that can build Spacedock the size difference between the Enterprise and Vengeance is trivial.

Say what you will, this version of Starfleet isn't messing around.

Re: SPOILER - Other Starship Revealed

The ship is a symbol for going into darkness? Instead of bright friendly vessels that embody peace and optimism, you now have starfleet expressing their bleak outlook of the universe with hulking gunships.
