Favorite non-canon ship

Star Trek fans have been designing their own ST ships since TOS. What are your favorites? Judged by "coolness factor" and fitting into the ST universe.

Vektor's Grandeur-class. Images of it are available over in the Fan Art forum.

Balson

It is the refit Dreadnaught, slightly stretched secondary hull.

I just want refit nacelle supports and a slightly wider saucer.

Quite a bit of Forbin's kitbashes.

And Franz Joseph's Destroyer, Scout and Dreadnought will always be part of my own personal canon.

Re: Favorite non-canon ship

The Vesta-class ships are my favorite due to them having quantum slipstream drive.

Re: Favorite non-canon ship

BolianAdmiral's Gemini-class (TOS)
Vektor's Vanguard (pre TOS)
My own Hercules-class (pre TOS)

Someone in the Art forum did a TMP era design based on a pre-production illustration that looked like it belonged right alongside the TMP refit design and the Reliant

There are also a few designs on Masao's Starfleet Museum website that are very cool. In particular his 22nd century Powhatan-class and his TOS era Predator-class destroyer.

I like the Phobos, the Copernicus, and the Churchill. Merian class is also nice.

Doesn't every ship have slipstream now?

If they do, I never heard about it. My understanding was that there were only a few ships with the drive installed.

Suppose you'd have a link for this one? Sounds interesting and I'm having a spot of trouble finding it on search.
