Was?

Seeing as the most recently-published favourite on his list was Ex Machina by Christopher L. Bennett, I'd be willing to bet he still keeps an eye on the novelverse.

I can't speak for them currently.

Plus, Ex Machina is nearly a decade old.

You and me both. Seems like yesterday I read that novel and I picked it up brand new the day it released and read it that week.

The smaller constitution-class starship is intriguing, as is the enlongated 'excelsior-esque' starship (smaller ship, below small Connie ship). My curiousity is officially at max!!! Also - the other Nova / Voyager looking starship with the refit-style swept back nacelle struts is an interesting new design.

I missed those. Are there some images of just them?

Re: concept art and set photos!

Did anyone see this article on Trek Collective about the xBox Live exclusives? Apparently one item cut was this JJ Trek TOS Connie:



I'd love to see if anyone can find anything else out about this.

This would also bear out the non-canon Countdown to Darkness plot point that there was an Enterprise under April that was decommissioned before the ship we see under Pike in the 09 movie.

^The Trek Collective article got it from a little way up this very thread. We're not sure it isn't a hoax.

None that I'm aware of, other than them schematically displayed on Marcus' display (to my knowledge) - just what can be seen from the Spacedock Manifest.

For images from the display, check out page 15 of this thread - Locutus of Bored posted images of the display, and points out all these new starships.

Here's one of Locutus's images (from that page), highlighting the ships in question (bottom right panel, and top right panel):

^^^ in regards to the 'New Type of Heavy Starship" that Locutus pointed out in those images, I just found this online, which looks like quite a similar design (visually speaking) in terms of it's silhouette:

THANK YOU!!! I spent ages searching through my FASA manuals, SURE I recognized it, but I must have skipped right past the Makin-class. The pages were probably stuck together or something. I'll put that on my infographic when it's done, and credit you!

If you look very closely, you'll see that the bridge module on that ship looks the same as the NX-01 bridge.

@ King Daniel Into Darkness No worries. Glad I could help.



@ Kruezerman - sure are!



@ Dukhat - Good observation! It could almost be a cross-between a Refit / Ent-A (Secondary Hull, Nacelles, struts), and the NX0-01 (Primary Saucer, bridge).

Interesting...

Going back to my FASA Federation Ship Recognition Manual, I was surprised to find that the original Makin-class was quite different from the version on The Star Trek Starship Tactical Combat Simulator On-Line Database and Archive, hence my not finding it on my search through!

^^^ great infographics King Daniel!

I'm wondering if the DB-5 designation stands for 'Docking Bay 5' perhaps, or something along those lines?
