USS EQUINOX vs USS ENTERPRISE-E

I have been watching Season 5 and Season 6 of STAR TREK VOYAGER, and I noticed that on the last episode of season 5, that the USS EQUINOX looks very similar to the USS ENTERPRISE-E NCC1701-E. Does anybody else think this was a pre-draft to Enterprise-E used in the TNG movies?

Re: USS EQUINOX vs USS ENTERPRISE-E

From memory, I think the Equinox was an old design dusted off, but it was for what eventually became the Defiant.

Edit: Thanks to Memory Alpha:

"I was searching through piles of drawings for little ships just to get some inspiration and I came across a sketch that I had done for the Deep Space Nine Tech Manual of the original design for the USS Defiant before... [it] was given all of its armor and upgraded weapons, what we call the Pathfinder vehicle... and I thought, 'Well, we haven't seen this one yet, so maybe this design could turn into the Equinox and the drawing was approved and we fleshed out the Equinox for the two-parter." -- Rick Sternbach

Do you have any good pictures of the USS EQUINOX, that you could post here?

I'm sorry but the Admin recently decided that racy pinup threads objectifying sexual exploitation are not welcome on this board.

Oh Guy.

By looks, the Equinox could be the Minime of the Enterprise E.

To tell you the truth, I really don't see it.

Maybe the bussard collector only?

Re: USS EQUINOX vs USS ENTERPRISE-E

In the TNG Technical Manual, they had concept drawings for "The Road to the Enterprise-E" or some wording similar to that. They referred to them as early designs for a Nova Class Starship (Which the Equinox was). One of them looked somewhat similar to the Equinox.

Here's the image LeadHead is referring to, courtesy of Memory Beta. I think the original concept from the Tech Manual was that "Nova Class" was planned to be the successor to the Galaxy Class. Obviously what we eventually got as the Nova Class didn't really fit the same role.

Of course, IMHO, none of these designs were that great, anyway. I think the bottom left is my favourite, although I'm not sure what's up with the nacelle struts extending so far past the nacelles.

Maybe try again? The results I got back just using the search string "uss equinox" seemed to include some really nice-looking images.

Girls had their time in the sun.

Men have moved on.

It's all about chrome and pistons now.

I think the Enterprise-E would win.
