Re: My homebrew kitbashes

I know I keep saying this project is done, but this time I think it really is. One last tinker on my Galaxy, changing the scale and some detailing.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

During the period between 2313 and 2344, the Cerberus class light frigate was the exemplar of Federation defensive strategy. It was a period of peace in the Alpha Quadrant. The Khitomer Accords were holding. The Romulans seemed content to mind their own business behind the Neutral Zone. It had been ages since there had been any aggression from the "lesser" Threat powers such as the Gorn or Kzinti.

Consequently, Starfleet Plans and Policies structured the balance of active forces to favor routine patrol and "policing" duties. Such assignments called for fast ships that relied more on strong shields than on raw firepower for defense, which was exactly the combination designed into the Cerberus and her sisters. Able to sustain a Warp 7 cruise on the re-calibrated "Okuda scale", they were easily able to move from system to system as needed. Upon arrival, their heavy shielding was more than a match for any known ship type available to either the Minor powers or pirate bands, which allowed the aggressors to be disabled with precision phaser fire or a well placed photon torpedo.

The time of peace came to an abrupt end with the sudden re-emergence of hostilities with the Klingon Empire, with whom the Federation fought a brief but bloody conflict in the late 2340s. Hard on the heels of that conflict came the "brush-fire" wars with the Tzenkethi and Cardassian Union. As a consequence, SP&P refocused the fleet back towards a posture that permitted more aggressive response utilizing heavier weaponry. As a result, the Cerberus class was eventually withdrawn from front-line service and relegated to secondary duties starting in 2351.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

But which is better? The "supersaucer" Connie derivitive or the Excelsior saucer (as modified)?
