1701-C nacelle nomenclature?

Howdy. For kitbashing diagram purposes, have we ever come up with a designation for the 1701-C's nacelles? As in, TOS was PB-32, TMP was LN-64...

Also, I know I've asked before, but I have the same question for the 1701-D's nacelles.

Thanks.

I think only Andrew Probert can answer this.

Might take a while..

Re: 1701-C nacelle nomenclature?

A certain recentish fan publication decided to give all the modern warp engines "LF" numbers... IIRC, Ambassador was "Leeding Energies LF-10".

Personally, I'd prefer at least four distinct series. The Ambassador ones might be closely related to the Excelsior ones (what with the "uppercut" thing), while the marker pen nacelles of the "BoBW" shipwrecks deserve their own letter designation before the Galaxy engine copies roll along (the Akira ones could be closely related to those in turn), and then finally we get the family that includes Sovereign, Nova and Prometheus at least.

Re: 1701-C nacelle nomenclature?

Todd Guenther and I started to do 1701-D plans in 1988, but they never went to press and were never even completed. My plan was to continue the evolution we had already established-- circumferential> linear> advanced circumferential> circumlinear

So, the 1701-D nacelles would have been circumlinear-- essentially combining the functions of both kinds of nacelles in one.

I don't remember if it ever got more specific than that, with a model/maker/issue number etc.

I'd call them BFN-9000 (Big Frigging Nacelles 9000)

Re: 1701-C nacelle nomenclature?

I actually arbitarily once referred to them as "LH-47" in a fanfic when I couldn't find an answer online...

Re: 1701-C nacelle nomenclature?

Back in the day, I arbitrarily called the Galaxy-class starship nacelles LN-100s.

Given the long stretch from TMP to TNG, that might crowd the nomenclature to the point of being incredible. My whole theory on warp drive evolution was that linear warp drive nacelles (like those of the TMP refit Enterprise, Reliant, Grissom, etc.) were the Federation's way of playing catch-up with the newer, svelte linear warp technology (linear means "fourth power" warp drive, distinguishing it from the cruder "third power" tubular circumferential nacelles) used by the Klingons. A linear-warp-driven starship traveling at Warp 4 would outrun a circumferential warp-driven vessel flying at Warp 6. Hence, during "Elaan of Troyus", when Spock said "their speed is better than Warp 6," it was because the Klingon attack cruiser was operating at Linear Warp 4. And when Spock finally got the refit Enterprise's new engines to work properly, Kirk ordered the ship to Linear Warp 7, it would've been seven times faster than traditional Circumferential Warp 7.

I'm assuming that the nacelles on the refit Enterprise, Reliant, Grissom, Excelsior and all subsequent starships classes clear through TNG and DS9 and even VOY (transwarp/slipstream not withstanding) were all evolutions of linear warp drive. So perhaps the Galaxy's uber-big nacelles should be called LN-500s, or LN-5000s or somesuch.

Re: 1701-C nacelle nomenclature?

The RPG publication Starships, by Decipher, identifies the warp nacelles for Ambassador-class Starships as LF-17.

In the DS9 episode, "One Little Step", Captain Benjamin Sisko states that the U.S.S. Defiant has a class seven warp drive system.

: Then we will move up to basic engineering theory for a class seven warp drive.

Re: 1701-C nacelle nomenclature?

FASA's TNG Officer's Manual calls the Galaxy-class nacelles "FVWA1".

The FASA Ambassador is totally different from the TNG version (a Connie saucer, a weird sender boxy hull and Excelsior nacelles below) so it's not much use.
