Aridas, mea culpa. I thought I recalled the list from Starfleet Design matching up to Jane's.

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

Wow...just jumped ahead and read the Lynx entry. Excellent job making my head hurt by making timetravel incomprehensible to the outside observer. That, cloaked with the subterfuge of the project, really made that the one entry difficult to understand. You (the reader) come out feeling as what little you read was more than to which you should have been exposed.

Edit: that was a compliment, by-the-way, as I'm sure obfuscation was the intention.

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

Sorry for the absence... More recent versions now uploaded. Some reshuffling in Part I, and some rough artwork to better visualize the ideas.

Basically, I'm done inserting all the FASA stuff, and fairly happy with most of the eras now that there is very little new material coming in. The parallel universe in the new movies isn't really the subject of this Guide, but I'm including the small craft anyway, and taking a few liberties with the ships. Yeah, the older ones should be common to both universes, but I'm still keeping them at TOS size for the time being; the new ones already have their parallels in the regular timeline, mainly in the form of humungous "command cruisers" and "battleships" from computer games.

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

Yup, the link from page two of this thread still takes you to the Drive account.

Oh, and thanks for the semi-backhanded compliment, Revanche! I think the guide could use more weirdness overall...

...Not everything in there is directly lifted from canon, novel or RPG sources. The Kermit and her exploits definitely derive from elsewhere.

There's updates to this work? Dammit, it took me ages to read the earlier version, where am I going to find the time to do it again? In any case, this a very well constructed history of the future.

Glad to have you around again Timo, you have been very conspicuous by your absence.
