    The images for the 2021 Ships of the Line calendar have been released.
    https://www.amazon.com/Star-Trek-Sh...+trek+ships+of+the+line&qid=1593208788&sr=8-1
    To review:
    Cover: Enterprise NX-01
    January: Enterprise A leaving Earth Spacedock, presumably from TUC
    February: MSD of NX class refit
    March: Enterprise E flying away from exploding Son'a ship in the Briar Patch
    April: Defiant and DS9. The Defiant is surrounded by something similar to the cover of novel Ascendance. Though unlike that cover, DS9 is the original TV show station.
    May: Movie era Enterprise in orbital drydock
    June: Two Starfleet officers standing outside a crashed Sabre class ship in the middle of a field
    Centrefold: Cutaway of TOS era Romulan Bird of Prey
    July: Enterprise NX-01 and a 22nd century Klingon ship
    August: Two Starfleet ships of unknown design flying by an exploding planet
    September: Another unknown Starfleet design flying by planetary rings
    October: Akira class ship fighting a Dominion battlecruiser
    November: The Phoenix sitting in a museum (the Smithsonian?) among other notable aircraft and spacecraft from history.
    December: Three Klingon D-7s/K't'ingas.

    Ohhh I want that NX Refit MSD

    The one on the right I think is a redesign of the Cardenas from DSC. The shuttle bay and impulse decks match. The ship beside it might be this, which appears to be their version of the Discovery

    He’s done deck plans for the refit now too, not sure when.

    The refit plans were finished at the end of last year. I was surprised when I linked to the site and saw how long ago the original NX-01 plans were finished, I only heard about the refit plans as they were nearing completion.

    I linked the left side one in a post at the top, but I can't find the right side one, I think he created it just for the Calendar. But based on the design of the rear, I think it's his take on the Cardenas class from DSC.

    Looking at this again, I think that Sabre is this fan redesign,

    It is. I remember seeing MKF working on both of them on his thread at F3D (which, after a promising relaunch, seems to be once again be having server issues). There are images in his parallel SFM thread.

    Lately he's been working on a Galaxy-class model. I'd assume it's for another SOTL image, but he's been oddly insistent that it has to precisely and perfectly match the six-foot model as it appeared when it was first built and painted for the series, not an anything-goes hybrid of the four-foot model and the series and movie versions of the six-foot model like most CG Galaxies, so there could be something else going on. Or maybe it's just a personal challenge the match a particular version since he doesn't usually clone existing designs.

    Yep, that's the same ship. Like the design but still hate the nacelles; I wish they looked more like Galaxy or Nebula class nacelles.

    I'm okay with the Phoenix version of the Saber. The level of detail suits me, and if they could post a listing of names and registries they went with for their published illustrations to date...?

    Wishing that I could view more than that one page on that forum. I hope it's not adblocker or tracker-blocker-related issues?

    Odd, works fine for me, and I'm not signed in or anything. You could always do it the old fashioned way, and change the page number in the URL.

    Probably won't tolerate adblockers and privacy add-ons...except even when they're turned off. My browser's probably too old for that system's liking.

    Anyway, moving along...
