Thankfully, that is NOT the official refit of Voyager. Mark Rademaker, who created the Vesta and Merian class, is still working on it. That's just a bad photoshop for the German covers. I love the German covers, I really do. But that Voyager photoshop is just plain wrong.

Oh, what a shame! I was just about to post how awesome it was to finally see the new Voyager. I love that they gave the ship Sovereign-style nacelles (Voyager's stubby little ones always looked atrophied to me) and enlarged the hanger bay a bit. The only bit I dislike are the impulse engines, which look like they'd leave nasty burns down the sides of the hull if activated.

Until Mark finishes his and it's actually on a cover, this will be the refit Voyager in my mind.

Although I really dislike the impulse engines on this, it's the plastic looking photoshop nacelles that don't flow with the rest of the design that I hate the most. Although the impulse engines are a very, very close second.

Re: Picture the Novelverse - Characters, Ships and More !

I've been listening to the audiobooks for the Shatnerverse novels, and I got to wondering what his ship, the Belle Reve, looks like. I checked Memory Beta, but there was no rendering. Does anyone know what the ship actually looks like? All i know is that it looks like a civilian freighter, which could be one of thousands of designs...

As per the comments on the Facebook post of Unworty, the front ship is the U.S.S. Planck.

Those are pretty good. It will be interesting to see how different Mark Rademaker's version of the refit Voyager looks.

The Vulcanesque ship would be the Demeter. We've also got Voyager as well as the Vesta- and Merian-class ships.

I'd love to see the Galen, which had been described as Nova-class style in Miranda-class configuration.

We haven't seen Achilles yet, but I'd wager it looks a lot like a star cruiser from Star Trek Online.

Re: Picture the Novelverse - Characters, Ships and More !

I'd love it if the next Star Trek television series could canonize several of the starship designs from Star Trek Online. Not all though because I think Star Trek Online's sheer array of starship classes is too ludicrous to be realistic.

Thanks for posting! (Although it wasn't actually laziness that prevented me from clicking through... )

I generally love the covers Cross Cult comes up with, but I gotta say, their version of the refit Voyager (which I had actually seen before as a stand-alone image... I'm guessing on The Trek Collective?) just doesn't do it for me. It just makes the ship look ungainly and unbalanced. I'll wait for Rademaker's version.

For those who are interested in Mark Rademaker's Voyager Refit, he posted this in the Voyager section of the forum....

I'm reminded of the Excelsior- and Ambassador-class, with that deep drop at the rear, and the "tail".

My starship-description terminology sucks, I know.

That doesn't look like it's a quick upgrade at a space dock that could last a few weeks, it's looks like a refit in the same sense as the Refit Connie and would take Voyager out of commission for months, if not a year or so.

One bit of a question, what does the Vanguard Ops look like? It's the only thing in the book that I've had a lot of trouble visualizing because the writing was a bit vague on the matter.
