    Boy, those people who think the Odyssey class is going to get canonized because of the STO Enterprise-F are going to be sorely disappointed.

    At this point I think an argument could be made for a lot of the fandom running on disappointment. It's no longer a bug but a feature.:ouch:

    That doesn't exclude the possibility of canonising the Odyssey class. I personally like the design well enough and it fits well in the era, especially with the previously canonised four STO ship classes.

    Lol, it would actually be fun if the opening scene of season 3 features an Odyssey class ship which after gracing the screen all pompously gets destroyed, to then cut to the true hero ship - the Enterprise F!

    BTW, am I the only one seeing a third nacelle on the leaked F pic? Hmm, I probably should check out the starship thread...

    I can see every single franchise which evolved into a pop cultural phenomenon and lived for more than a couple of years in there. Or to be more precise, every franchise that lived long enough to have more than one incarnation - that's where they get ya.

    Fortunately, it's almost always just a loud minority of the respective fandom being prone to disappointment... But hey, why not make the disappointment to a selling argument, haha!

    I have no problem with them using the Odyssey class on screen…as a generic background ship. Not as a new Enterprise.

    I would probably laugh at that one. I know fake outs are considered in poor taste but things like that do make chuckle.

    While the leaked MSD pic is pretty blurry, we can be sure that it isn't Odyssey class. The different pylon design is pretty easily discernible.

    But there's that weird part behind where probably the shuttle bay is supposed to be. Looks exactly like the back parts of the warp nacelles.

    I don't think that's a nacelle, unless it's mounted under the secondary hull.

    Nacelles are usually, from all the MSDs we know, hidden everywhere they overlap with the hull of the ship, ie Ent D. For that reason they're sometimes even pictured separately, ie Voyager.

    On the other hand, there's nothing preventing the third nacelle being mounted at the bottom. Might look really good if the primary and secondary hulls are rather flat, squished together.

    It's the aft nacelle. Duh!

    Inspired by the Protostar, huh? Including its performance? I could imagine it working...

    Transwarp drive? :confused:


    Does this make the Protostar Prime timeline? :confused:

    I believe it's a joke in reference to STID, where Khan threatened to destroy the Enterprise's life support by attacking "the aft nacelle," a line which has confused everyone since both nacelles are located aft.

    Aft of the support strut is how I took the line.

    Still makes little sense but I'll try any way.

    It... isn't? I'm fairly sure that it is Prime - some alleged time travel shenanigans notwithstanding, the ship's origins are still a bit murky, as are the circumstances of its stranding in the Delta Quadrant.

    But now that I think about it... we can't rule it out that the Protostar might be from outside the Prime Timeline. Hm. Thanks for the input!

    Ooh, I had no idea, thanks! I never watched the Kelvin movies, admittedly. Not that I don't like their concept, just never felt enough appeal - which could change with the release of the fourth movie, though.

    (Also... whoever needs to read this, you know who you are: I not once felt the need visit Kelvin fan threads, be it here or on Reddit or wherever, to shit on the Kelvin movies and their fans. Weird, huh?)

    Once you know Gene Roddenberry's writing style and the ideas he liked to constantly push, it's very easy to look at the TNG Series Bible plus the first 18 episodes (before he stepped down as Showrunner) and see who came up with what.
