Re: What class ship would you want to serve aboard?

Well, I'd expect to serve on multiple ships. A Connie / Connie refit is de rigeur, but I really kinda like the Federation DN / DN refit. At some point a Karekh would be interesting - although I'd never want such a small ship in real life. PCs are a hideous amount of work. Treknology reduces a lot of the labor aspect.
I've always liked the Chandley.
In later eras, I like the Excelsior, Akira, Defiant, and Sovereign.
If I had to pick just one, I'd go with the Fed DN, as I prefer that era anyway, and there's access to longevity enhancers that'd let me see everything later anyway.

I didn't get this until I realized that you were talking about the Abrams films, not the Mirror Universe. There you'd need to grow a goatee, or get a scar.

Me, I'd go for the Sovereign. Love the design, but also just as comfy as the Galaxy but a bit more modern, uprated tech and no kids wandering the corridors. Don't get me wrong, I love kids. But they have no business on a starship.
My choice for the same reasons. The Galaxy is nice and comfortable, but all that Beige and kids wandering around would get to me eventually...
That was the Enterprise D. Who is to say the later Galaxy class ships didn't have different interior designs?

I have to wonder if the Probert "C" wasn't used because it was so good-looking. They might not have wanted to put a guest ship onscreen that was essentially a better-looking version of the hero ship....

I'll always prefer captaining the ship I got when I became promoted Captain: the IKS Haqtaj, a scientific vessel (refitted Negh'Var class; of course we kept the weaponry). Our mission is to find a substitute for a certain substance, popular in the Empire, that originates on Terra, thus making the Empire independent of Terran imports.
Our Mission's motto is: nuqDaq yuch Dapol?
I'm also the Science Officer (and the one who gets to try all the new samples )

You are a naughty boy (that's how Andrew Probert felt about the Drex Files commenters saying the same thing).

But you obviously have good taste (that's what I'm saying but Mr. Probert would probably only agree 50%)

It would only be good form for Probert to be modest about the situation.

D'deridex class Warbird

I'd definitely be a Romulan in the Trekverse

The only reason it wasn't used it because of time constraints. The design had to be simplified so they could build it quickly, and that meant having a lot of simpler shapes.

I'll let my avatar speak for me on the matter.
Sooooo, Yesterday's Enterprise aired years before Generations. I think they backed themselves into a corner with the design. Very little they could do in Generations to roll that backward from an evolution perspective without edging right up to the refit design. Makes Enterprise B seem out of place in context. Problem is, E-B makes sence. E-C doesn't.

Good taste indeed. Probert's "C" was a beautiful ship.
