Looks like we're Makin progress here!
If you look very closely, you'll see that the bridge module on that ship looks the same as the NX-01 bridge.
@ King Daniel Into Darkness No worries. Glad I could help.
@ Kruezerman - sure are!
@ Dukhat - Good observation! It could almost be a cross-between a Refit / Ent-A (Secondary Hull, Nacelles, struts), and the NX0-01 (Primary Saucer, bridge).
Going back to my FASA Federation Ship Recognition Manual, I was surprised to find that the original Makin-class was quite different from the version on The Star Trek Starship Tactical Combat Simulator On-Line Database and Archive, hence my not finding it on my search through!
^^^ great infographics King Daniel!
I'm wondering if the DB-5 designation stands for 'Docking Bay 5' perhaps, or something along those lines?
DB 5, huh? Is that a reference to Connery's Aston Martin from GOLDFINGER?
Okay, HERE is my annotated, perspective-corrected composite of the "powerwall". It's huge.
HERE is the plain version. Also huge.
HERE is the early prototype version, with annotations.
Enjoy! Feel free to point out any errors or omissions.
Can anyone identify what's written below the screen of the Narada hangar and Jellyfish? It looks Welsh.
1024x372 is huge?
Click the magifying glass in the corner. The annotated one is 5500x2000, 1.82MB. The plain one is 2227x1500, 1.38MB
I did, that's how I got the 1024, they were 500 before that. Somethings not going right.
You might have to click the magnifying glass one more time.
I got the big version just fine. Nice work!
I'm glad you like it (and that it works, I was cursing Photobucket for a second). It's got to be my all-time favourite Trek graphic. A million Trek nods and not one Buckaroo Banzai reference.
Fine work deconstructing and analyzing that, King. Ditto on the unmakin' the Makin.
Yeah - I concur: Great work King Daniel!
Suddenly had a thought: might DB-5 mean "Docking Bay Five" rather than refer to the name of the design?
^^^ @ Praetor - Yep, that thought occured to me a few posts back as well...
'great minds' and all that...
Great minds, eh?
That sounds like a good bet. (Besides, if it had been a James Bond reference, you'd have people grousing that the movie used a DB5 to show off Aston-Martin's newest model, while in the novel the chapter title was "Thoughts in a DB III".)
Interestingly, the designation next to the USS Enterprise appears to be VH-5 / VB-5 - so I'm not quite sure (if DB means Docking Bay) what this designation could mean...
(Vehicle Bay 5, Vehicle Hanger 5???)
The smaller constitutition class starship (the mini-connie) has what appears to be the designation: AF / AP, while the even smaller Excelsior starship has VB (?)
The plot thickens...
Separate names with a comma.
