    I'm sure most, if not all, of you remember the amazing Star Fleet Technical Manual that Franz Joseph created back in the early 70s. Since that time, many artists have expanded on Mr. Joseph's works, but few did so to the extent that Neale Davidson did in the early 2000s.

    Neale produced nearly a dozen Technical Manuals under the 'Jaynz' name that included hundreds of new schematics and technical specifications on various Federation starships, stations, and other vessels. Sadly, Neale passed away in early 2017, but his work lives on.

    I've recently uploaded nine of Neale's very best technical manuals, which are available in both JPG and PDF formats.

    You can access his collection here: https://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars/blueprints-main2.php#B21

    Enjoy-

    Jaynz? Wait, did Neale Davidson happen to produce drawings and ship specs for Star Trek: The Role Playing Game's support magazine Stardate back in the 1980s? They had a regular feature entitled "Jaynz Ships of the Galaxy", if I recall, with some imaginative entries.

    No Neale borrowed the Jaynz title from the FASA game

    Well, they're all based, of course, on the "Jane's Reference Series" which I've read copies of from as far back as World War II (Jane's Fighting Ships of the World). A nice tip of the hat to the definitive reference, in my opinion.

    I do miss Neale. He was a gifted ship designer. Thank you for sharing these.
