    Can't take credit for the idea, DC Comics did it years ago... :)

    I replaced the Grishna image with one scaled properly.

    Funny you should mention combat, because the Stemmonds in my fictional universe represents a rare failure as a combat vessel.

    Long story short, Stemmonds was one of half a dozen ships from the Miranda class that was tapped for field trials of various hull rebuilds from the original (TOS) configuration. This program would eventually spawn the Avenger and Soyuz subclasses as a result.

    Stemmonds was actually rebuilt BEFORE Avenger, and represents the first attempt with the "roll bar" weapons array. The oversize pod put too much strain on the structural integrity and inertial damper systems in combat, so it was redesigned into the smaller "Avenger" pod which also had the redesigned roll bar configuration.

    The Stemmonds herself was retained in service and re-tasked with less demanding scouting and survey duties with half of the pod launchers reconfigured to launch sensor drones an buoys.

    I really like the design of the Flemming class, it reminds me of a perimeter action vessel. I like the phaser turrets around the ventral spine. :bolian:

    Thanks!

    Two Connie variants. First one is from a model seen in a couple of TNG eps.

    next one is one I remember first seeing in a very old issue of Starlog. I've since seen it a time or two around the Internet, but at the moment can't find it again so I had to give a "generic" credit.

    any help IDing the rightful designer of the 2nd variant would be appreciated.

    I have that Starlog issue, will dig it out tonight. If i remember correctly it was to show the Enterprise fitted with trans-warp engines.

    Yeah, it was a bunch of solicited fan designs back around the time of ST III/IV as I recall for the new (at the time) Enterprise.

    I don't know about that...though I've read so many Trek and Treknical books in my life I may have and just forgotten it...I don't recall any Kestrel that was based on the Decatur class at least... :)

    Ok, revisiting the concept of a 2280s Galaxy class I think for the last time:
