Someone played around with the shape of the impulse module and the side profile of the torpedo deck. Apparently that's enough for some to slap a new class name on it.

Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

^^^ Seems the big changes are the impulse engine redesign and the torp launcher. Not just redesign-- this Enterprise lookalike has an AFT firing torp launcher.

I am sure it will soon appear as an original design in the "design the next Enterprise" contest.

I'm tempted to submit one of Matt Jefferies preproduction sketches, just to see if anyone catches it...

Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

Great work, Dennis.

I would have loved to see some variations show up on screen within the Constitution Class. It's been well established that Starfleet vessels undergo refits. It's very unlikely that all refits happen at the same time across the fleet. It's also easy to believe variations would creep it. After all, "I know engineers, they LOVE to change things." With apologies to the purists out there, remastering The Ultimate Computer would have been a great opportunity to do this. Show us a Phase II Connie, perhaps a 2nd ship with low slung nacelles as on the Ambassador class, etc. Alas, to quote Lord Scrumptious, "Too late. Had your chance. Muffed it."

Re: "Star Trek: Phase II" Enterprise

Thanks, Cephas.

I agree that The Ultimate Computer was a missed opportunity, given what the ST-R producers were willing to do with the Tholian ships in The Tholian Web.

Mind you, I didn't like what was done in The Tholian Web - but if the producers were willing to take that revisionist an approach to the show's effects (different from the stance they appeared to have started out with) they could have put it to much better use with The Ultimate Computer.

The only place where this might be interpreted to run aground vis-a-vis TOS continuity would be Kirk's statement in Tomorrow Is Yesterday to the effect that there are "twelve like [Enterprise] in the fleet," but then only if that's taken on the most literal level.

That was fantastic! Would the series have aired with Kirk as captain or admiral?
As envisioned, Kirk would be captain for the first 13 episodes, grooming Decker to take the center seat afterward. Shatner would then be hired on as a recurring Commodore or Admiral for a handful of episodes per season.

The long term goal would be, in fact, to replace most of the expensive established cast members with cheaper newcomers as the series progressed.
