    Ship fanatics gather. What do you hope to see? Why kind of stories, relationships, dynamics do you want between these vessels?

    Well, I have a lot of ideas, but I'm not certain I know where the line between speculation/opinion and story ideas lies, and to avoid rule-breaking I'll sit this one out, I think. Well, at least until other people set a standard for me to follow! :)

    I think there should be an Intrepid class ship and an Akira class ship that try to start a relationship, but a Saber class ship gets all jealous and wants to go back home because it always had a crush on the Akira and now it's too late to do anything about it. But it has to stay in the fleet so it spreads gossip about the Intrepid ship and breaks up a longstanding friendship between the Intrepid class ship and its oldest friend, a Nebula class ship.

    Or maybe I don't understand the question.

    The Sabre and the Akira then have an affair, the Akira swayed by the Sabre's smear campaign against the Intrepid. The Akira soon regrets it, but to its horror finds it is pregnant with the Sabre's secret love shuttle. Unsure of how to explain itself, the Akira runs away and the rest of the fleet spend most of the mission looking for her. Eventually, they find her hiding in a Voth cityship, confiding in the local Minister. The Voth vow to put a stop to this silly endotherm ship bickering, and confiscate the fleet's slipstream drives. Then the ships all argue over whose fault it is.

    When two of the ships have a little shuttlecraft, they'll name it after her.

    Just a reminder folks... keep it very generic and non-specific. We've got authors here and story ideas aren't allowed in this forum.

    Thanks

    But then the Luna ship gets quite jealous because its slipstream drive is no longer a unique item so it cozyies up to the medical ship.

    Do we know how many ships, what classes, etc? I believe the end of Full Circle told us the names of the ships and their captains, but I don't recall classes.

    There are two Vesta-class ships, I believe, and the prototype EMV. Other than that, I don't think classes were mentioned, no.

    Man, we really need an official Vesta-class design. I hate reading a book where I have no idea what a ship's class is. This bothered me with the Titan series until we got the official Titan design in 2005.

    We do have a Vesta-design. It's a bit like an Excelsior in a half-shell. It's pretty impressive.

    But it's not official.

    Oh. I thought it was going to appear on a cover next year? Or are they going to alter it further before then?
