I would ask who requested that, but the scary part is, I'd actually get a legitimate answer.

Re: All my ships in 1 place

Yeah, I'd love for you to put together a TMP-era Springfield-Class vessel as I described earlier in the thread.

Kaiser: An NX-Class with dual overhead Abbe-Class / New Orleans-Class type overhead missile/torpedo launchers & Enterprise-A type nacelles. Designed as part of the "Home Guard" task forces, after painful lessons were learned the hard way during the Earth-Romulan War.

Rarely ever seen, frequently docked to trading bases as "last resort" vessels as they don't tend to last long in battle.

They're relatively heavily armed, but not especially maneuverable, thickly armored, or quick to re-load. Insufficient sensors, jerry-rigged computers, and completely unable to detect cloaked vessels. They're not heavily manned, mostly automated with skeleton crews, and the ship's armaments don't adjust to enemy movements once they're fired.

They're basically refit NX-Class vessels (some with the new secondary hull expansions, others without,) with big, loud sawed-off shotguns on the dorsal sides of their saucer sections or aft/engineering hulls, and scarcely-faster at a maximum warp of warp 7.8

The ship fires to a general area and hopes they nail something in the approximate area of their experimental weapons' discharge.

Copernicus-Class Frigate

Extremely controversial, as starfleet's mission is to explore and not be seen as strictly an imperialistic expanding military power. The Copernicus is often discussed in murmurs in the hallways as the "redshirt-class".

Re: All my ships in 1 place

Feel free to disregard this, but looking back over some of your ship classes, this is how I see them:

Toward the end of the Dominion War, Starfleet was getting desparate for ships to throw in front of the enemy, and started pulling as many good parts as they could off of ships in the scrapyards and museums and putting them together quickly into whatever would work and possibly have enough power to stand a chance. Shuttlebays reworked to fire torpedoes and smaller jury-rigged explosive-filled kamikaze ships (old shuttles and such), and tons of lower-powered old school warp nacelles strung together to provide modern levels of power. Each ship, or usually at most, couple of ships, formed their own class, and sometimes the engineers got a little silly with the names, which Starfleet left to them - but usually the names were of characters known for an ability to MacGyver things together like the engineers themselves were doing.

Sounds Good to me and it appears the Eugenics war didnt interfere with cartoons of the 1990's ^__^

Re: All my ships in 1 place

Can you kitbash this set of orthos of the NX-Class, with the torpedo / missile launchers from the Abbe-Class (or New Orleans-Class) & the nacelles from the Enterprise-A?

Re: All my ships in 1 place

Thank ~you~, Kaiser. I look forward to future designs of your's. I'd love to start seeing some freighter (civilian) drydock stations / orbital housing habitats, office complexes, your versions of trading bases, (land-based or underwater) science stations built by non-Human Federation members, etc.

I rarely if ever post on trek art because my lab (see avatar) has more art skills than I do. That said, there all interresting except the horse. Now if you'd constructed a large badger...
