Galileo Class Starcruiser SORM

Anyone have opinions on this fan-produced manual?

I like the depth of the material, but think it is lacking in not having any more illustrations of the ship itself.

Also, in looking for other works by the same people (they also produced the Starfleet Academy Student Handbook), I fould indication of more books in their "Starfleet Guides" series (Galileo and Starfleet Academy having apparantly been the first two): The Starfleet Marine Corps Handbook, The Starfleet operations Guide, etc.

My question: As far as I can tell, therese other titles were solicited to retailers (I found this info on an old Barnes and Noble link) and had ISBN numbers assigned to them, but don't seem to have been actually published. Does anyone know any different?

I don't know where Mysterion found it, but I came across the book in a Borders about ten years ago.

As did I, oddly enough.

I have a copy of the Book also and I'm of the same opinion that there could have been more schematics of the ship itself. I also have a copy of their Starfleet Academy Student Handbook. I thought I saw a section in the Manual saying watch out for Galileo class blueprints but I opened My issue up and can't find that reference. Like you Mysterion I've been wondering if they ever completed them or came up with new material.

^^^^^
That they don't seem to have done anything else after those two volumes is quite the pity. IMO. I applaud the thought and imagination they put into both the Galileo book, as well as coming up with an entire four-year curiculum for the Starfleet Academy.

And a set of Galileo blueprints would have rocked.

Old news, but I always wanted to know what the purpose of making that book was for. Was it for some roleplaying group set on that ship class? There was a lot of detail into ships procedures, rooms, and the like that one would need for roleplaying, but not much on the exterior of the ship.

Also no history of what happened to the ships themselves after assignment to their respective sectors. Also a potentally contradictory history involving the canon Constellation-class starships.

Well, here's a thread I'd thought we'd seen the last of.

Apparantly the folks that produced the Galileo manual are associated with this group: http://www.ss3f.com/

Guessing that it came out of material they produced as background for their fanfic.

Re: Galileo Class Starcruiser SORM

I see. I'd found my copy of that book a week ago and had to ask why I existed, as while it has some interesting details, is not exactly what I'm into. More into ship specifications, and the like, as well as class histories.

Even the Ships of the Starfleet volumes have an issue with me (aside from sometimes not identifying certain classed mentioned at the start) is that it makes mention of a few conflicts, including the Four Year's War, yet there are very few ships lost. Maybe the Cruisers and Frigates are luckier than the Destroyers and other class types, but there are very few ships lost...with most of the cruisers mentioned at being lost are ships lost in the Original Series (Constellation, Valiant, Defiant, and Intrepid).

The nacelles of that ship were from Jackill right? The saucer looks like a modified reliant hull...

Re: Galileo Class Starcruiser SORM

I'm not sure if there was ever a clear picture of how many losses Starfleet suffered during the Four Years War. FASA, who originated it as part of their RPGverse, stated that the Constitutions (and presumably some of their subclasses) were purposely kept off the front lines because they were among the most advanced ships of that era, and Starfleet didn't want to risk the chance of capture. FASA does say that some of the FJ ships, like the Siva destroyer subclass, fared poorly in the war and quite a few were destroyed.
