    But this one is kind of canon Mr. Probert! :p

    My favorite non-canon design is the Yorktown class from Star Trek: Legacy. I just love the heavy-duty warships.

    I forgot about that one! An all-time classic fan design (covered from head to toe in Ships of the Star Fleet, volume 2), which made it's way into the licenced Star Trek Legacy videogame. I suspect she influenced the NX-01's design, as well as ENT's "half saucer" Intrepid-type.

    I love the little Sagittarius-class from Star Trek: Vanguard, but ultimately, my favourite is Mark Rademaker's as yet unfinished Theophrastus-class USS Demeter for Project: Full Circle.

    Oddly enough I really liked the Ent F from STO the Odyssey Class is actually pretty true to the constitution design lineage. Also add another vote for the Vesta Class.

    Go ahead, caller. I'm listening...
    Well... we're only seeing her from the side. Who says there couldn't be TWO nacelles side-by-side up there? ;)

    (Yeah, I know - the book says it. But who cares? :D )

    What I think might be interesting is having a ship that deploys its nacelles before going to warp but otherwise keeps them concealed beneath additional hull plating, sort of analogous to X-wing fighters changing their configuration before an attack.

    Maybe the nacelles have "pair-wise warp coils" like they were described for the Freedom Class or the Niagara Class or even the All Good Things Enterprise D Refit

    Hey, if it's any help the top nacelle gets blown off by Klingons almost as soon as the ship is introduced.

    Reminds me of the Millennium Falcon losing its satellite dish in Return of the Jedi while traversing the Death Star superstructure.

    Alright, I'm quite certain that some people here at the BBS insist that this is the appropriate thread to post, after the other two (TNG & Fan Art) have been closed. :rolleyes:

    On the other hand, I still insist that "Redemption II" qualifies as a premise change which relocated "Yesterday's Enterprise" into a "parallel universe" (quote David Carson, 2008) and thus restored the authenticity of the conference lounge sculpture wall of the Enterprise-D which featured Andrew Probert's original Enterprise-C:

    So here is my favorite "previously not prominently featured on TNG" starship from yet another interesting angle. :)

    My God, will you let it go? You seem to bring it up in every thread you participate in at this point. :rolleyes:

    Nice looking ship and definitely non-canon since it never appeared on-screen.

    Apparently I missed something (havenĀ“t been very active at the BBS recently) but how is Andrew ProbertĀ“s design not canon? It has been part of that sculpture wall in the briefing lounge of the Enterprise-D until they changed the wall with the beginning of season five. Sure, it was a rather crude model and not fleshed out as perfectly as the CGI model above, but still it was on screen for four years and is thus part of on-screen canon!

    Welcome to the "happy few" (where both Enterprises-C are canon, once you accept "Redemption II" as a premise change enabling us to have cake and eat it, too). :)

    You can read in the corresponding TNG thread and the corresponding Fan Art thread that there are several BBS members that doubt the authenticity (and therefore canon value) of the golden wall sculptures aboard the Enterprise-D. It's really worth to read how some people try to discredit something that is so obvious and shouldn't require additional explanations, IMHO.

    @BillJ

    Was that another approach not to talk about the issue? The one thing that was obvious in the two aforementioned threads was that some fans apparently thought they could tell others what to talk about and what not. And in the Fan Art thread some guys, other than the OP (!), even asked the moderator to close the thread. :wtf:

    Actually, I visited yesterday the "Fan Productions" section and noticed that on 03-26-14 the above CGI image had been posted. Since the corresponding Fan Art thread was closed a day later and the Enterprise-C had become a forbidden subject, I wondered where I could share this nice CGI image. I then realized that this thread was the perfect option, especially considering how you and a few others feel about the subject (but obviously that's still not good enough :rolleyes:).
