I think the Centaur is a pretty neat looking design. Exploring that one more would have been very cool.
Me too. I like to think it's the non-canon Mediterranean class.
Yeah, I can see the similarities, if that's the ship class you're talking about. But I think the Centaur looks more streamlined and elegant. And I somehow think Centaur is a pretty good name for it. Don't ask me why, I just think it is ...
The Mediterranean class was only mentioned in the Star Trek Encyclopaedia and has never appeared in canon. I'd guess that that image is a fan creation.

It is indeed... The Centaur is more elegant to me too. I think the Centaur is to Excelsior what Miranda is to Constitution... although no doubt in smaller numbers. The similarity to the fan-created Mediterranean makes it all the more easy for the 'real' one to take its place, IMO.

I'd be very happy to be able to fit most of those kitbashes to those names from the Encyclopedia... not sure that it's very feasible, though. I would quite like to make a table of the ships from the 'pedia, then compare it to the canon info from Memory Alpha and then try to reconcile that with the kitbashes...

I believe that the class name was present on the Starship Operations screen in the Conference Room.

Re: DS9 Kitbashes

Really? It's not on this one, but others are. I'd like to assume as much 'speculative info' from the Encyclopedia as canon as possible, except where we know better.

I wonder what other names might have appeared on displays...

I don't even know what a 'kitbash' is.

But anyway, I really LOVE your avatar, NCC-1701. One of the more creative DS9 avatars I've seen in a while.

Yeah, I didn't know either before I joined the board and visited the Trek Art forum. It does apparently mean that you're using parts of different commercially available model kit to build a new model.

Aww, thanks, PK! It's a nice image, isn't it? Somehow it reminds me of my own childhood. It also brings back nice memories of early DS9. It's kind of an iconic image for DS9, methinks. I was inspired by one of the caps in the Trek Screencap Game thread in General Trek. I just had to transform it into an animation.

It's when they buy a ton of AMT trek kits and use parts from differant ships to make a new class of vessel, they were quite common in DS9. I prefer to call them what they ''really'' are. The Frankenstien Fleet!

^ A kitbash is where you take a model kit/s and rearrange the parts into a new design, eg sticking Galaxy class nacelles on a Constitution class, that type of thing.
