    You all know the story of the Defiant, right? What if, bare with me, it split into different versions of the ship? You saw one that ended up in the Mirror Universe (as seen in "In the mirror, darkly" and a few Season 1 episodes of Discovery), and another that was occupied by James Kirk in Star Trek Continues "Still Treads the Shadow"...BUT...what if one of them went back in time and went sideways, and crashed on Mars...before the Garmillan War kicked off? The result: This crazy yet exciting alternate adventures of Juno Okita, Susumu Kodai, Yuki Mori and the crew of the Earth Federation's symbol of hope: The U.S.S Yamato

    Supplied with alien technology from Iscandar, this Constitution-class starship (later re-dubbed the Yamato-class in honor of the battleship Yamato of 1944) would travel to the Large Magellanic Cloud and back to save the Earth in one years time while evading, and if necessary, battle against the Garmillas with its signature weapon: The Wave-Motion Cannon; located at the Deflector dish.

    Name: U.S.S. Yamato
    Class: Constitution (re-dubbed as Yamato-class)
    Registry: NCC-2199
    Weapons: 16x phaser strips, 4x duel phaser emplacements, 8x triple phaser emplacements, 3x photon torpedo launchers, 4x single phaser emplacements, 1x Wave Motion Cannon based off of Wave Motion technology
    Speed: Unlimited due to the Wave Motion Core

    Credits

    Parts used: MihoshiK
    New fonts: Me
    Star Trek: Gene Roddenberry, NBC/Paramount/CBS
    Yamato: Yoshinobu Nishizaki and Leiji Matsumoto

    I wanted to post their signature uniforms for this AU Series, but I'm limited to one post, so this will be my star

    If I'm not too late, here's my hastily scrawled entry inspired by the ship girls from the Kantai Collection game (amongst others):

    I went with an Osnullus as the subject because they have giant heads, just like a lot of anime-style girls :rommie:

    :eek: Whoa, a @Cyfa sighting! Funnily enough I was just thinking of you the other day, wondering if this contest wouldn‘t be something for you. Nice to have you back. Hope you‘re doing okay.

    Love your entry, by the way! And all the other entries, too. I could kick myself that I didn‘t find time once again. @Rekkert, do you need help setting up the voting thread? If yes, just let me know and I will help you out. :)

    Interesting...the credits states it was done in Blender, but it honestly has the look of traditional claymation, "Art Clokey" style no less!
