    Thanks Praetor and Andymator :) Yep - that's what I was referring to.

    Gerbil - The red-hulled ship is shown onscreen (as I mentioned earlier in this thread, and in the thread I started a little while back, discussing the onscreen appearance of the mysterious red hulled starship - http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=213985), but it is not listed / shown on the Spacedock Manifest (on Marcus's display) - which is why I then went on to suggest that it might have arrived at the dock after the Marcus Office scene (hence why it didn't appear on the manifest).

    Hope that clarifies things. :)

    It's slightly misspelled, but there's metaphasic shields too! And well over a hundred years before the prime universe invented them.

    I don't think that's a misspelling, actually. I think the ship has a shielding device that prevents metaphysic radiation from distorting the crew's intellectual capacity.

    This is why on the USS Enterprise you will hear engineers say things like "hand me that wrench" while on the Enterprise-D it is not uncommon to hear "hand me that hex-bolt decoupler."

    I kinda like the idea of there being metaphysic shields.

    They have them, but deploy them internally. The lens flares we see are actually only 0.2% of those generated within the ship. Without the metaphysic shields, the crew would be blinded and boiled.

    The trouble on Andoria is interesting, I wonder if this "social unrest" within the Federation might be the start of problems that result in the Battle of Axanar? At least in this timeline anyway.

    More than likely a nod to the reproductive crisis that is going on in the 24th century Trek novels.

    Orci was a fan of Trek novels.

    Was?

    Seeing as the most recently-published favourite on his list was Ex Machina by Christopher L. Bennett, I'd be willing to bet he still keeps an eye on the novelverse.

    I can't speak for them currently.

    Plus, Ex Machina is nearly a decade old.

    Has it been that long already?

    Way to make me feel ready for the nursing home, guy!

    You and me both. Seems like yesterday I read that novel and I picked it up brand new the day it released and read it that week. :lol:

    I missed those. Are there some images of just them?

    Did anyone see this article on Trek Collective about the xBox Live exclusives? Apparently one item cut was this JJ Trek TOS Connie:

    I'd love to see if anyone can find anything else out about this.

    This would also bear out the non-canon Countdown to Darkness plot point that there was an Enterprise under April that was decommissioned before the ship we see under Pike in the 09 movie.

    ^The Trek Collective article got it from a little way up this very thread. We're not sure it isn't a hoax.

    None that I'm aware of, other than them schematically displayed on Marcus' display (to my knowledge) - just what can be seen from the Spacedock Manifest.

    For images from the display, check out page 15 of this thread - Locutus of Bored posted images of the display, and points out all these new starships.

    Here's one of Locutus's images (from that page), highlighting the ships in question (bottom right panel, and top right panel):

    THANK YOU!!! I spent ages searching through my FASA manuals, SURE I recognized it, but I must have skipped right past the Makin-class. The pages were probably stuck together or something. I'll put that on my infographic when it's done, and credit you!:bolian:
