Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Just prior to the explosion on Praxis in 2293, Starfleet had finished construction on it's latest class of shuttlecarrier, the Ark Royal. Six months and one treaty later, Starfleet had a proverbial "white elephant" on it's hands. Not allowed to keep the ships in commission due to the stipulations of the Accord, Starfleet nevertheless did not want to simply send them to the breakers or stick them in a Boneyard to slowly rot.

What then, were they to do?

It was finally suggested that they be converted into exploration vessels. With 70%+ of the space allocated to small craft and their support systems reconfigured into labs, crew facilities, and storage space, the ships would still have more embarked craft than any cruiser or frigate, and science facilities comparable only to those found on certain starbases.

The robust hull construction inherent to shuttlecarrier designs would allow the weapons and shields to be downgraded, keeping the ship safely within the limits imposed by the Accord, and if anyone noticed that those last changes could be quickly and easily undone with minimal dockyard time (which would turn the ships into a highly effective super-heavy cruiser/battlecruiser, they didn't bother to bring the subject up.

The 12 ships of the "new" class, rechristened the Khitomer class all went on to have highly distinguished careers in the Galaxy Exploration Division, and are considered by many engineers to be one of the best examples of starship re-purposing ever completed, and certainly one of the most robust designs of the early 24th century.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Hi Ian
I like the Eldorado but I noticed that on the elevation view the Impulse engine is blocked by that Upper level on the secondary hull. I'd suggest that you relocate the impulse
engine either to the secondary hull further back or put a double set of impulse engines port and starboard on the saucer to clear that portrusion. Keep up the good work by the way

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Bernard: look again at the plan view. The impulse engine is in fact NOT blocked. I was very careful to make sure of that. It only looks blocked from the elevation view.

Knight Templar, I kind'a agree, but that's where she "wanted" to go. I'm thinking that she represents a "failed" design (poor warp performance and maneuverability, etc), that they maybe only made a handful of.
