    There were the very blurry Ptolemy class ships towing the Enterprise in Ep.1

    i have a feeling that great starship battle will amount to the enterprise swooping in to lend a hand. i know i'm not alone in that expectation.
    yes, thank you, i forgot about that one. we even got to see the interior, so that's something - as unsatisfying as it was.
    aw wishful thinking.

    actually, i'm not even sure i want to see the discovery fleet brought into line with TOS. i kind of like how distinct the designs are, even if a ton of them are hideous.

    I don't think I'm going to have a problem with seeing a mixture of classic TOS-style and DSC-styled Starfleet ships hanging around in this series over the next few years.

    Highly likely.

    The end ship battle could go one of two ways, if Control only has Lelands ship then it could end up being just Discovery plus one other ship against it, the Enterprise or a D7 most likely.

    If on the other hand we see a large number of S31 ships under enemy AI command then it could be the Discovery, Enterprise and the Klingons against S31 in a big fleet battle.

    It really depends on how much budget they had left over for the finale.

    They can go big or keep it to just a few ships.

    Has any star ship fired a single phaser this season?

    Discovery has fired torpedoes, but that's it.

    Maybe they were saving the budget for the second half.

    after last season's anti-climax (everyone has a bomb and no one's gonna use it), i expect fireworks.

    It doesn't need a giant ship battle to be climatic.

    that's not what i was saying. but still, as a change from last season's less than adrenaline-pumping finale, i expect they'll take the action up a few notches. and (as has been speculated here before), they're clearly saving the enterprise for something.

    At this point I'm completely at peace with this theoretical scenario.

    Only got one angle on the D7, disappointing
    I also really dislike the nacelles.

    Very much inspired by the K'T'inga, especially with those iimpulse engines.

    Looks like a heavily-modded Cardenas class, like the Buran but...meaner.

    Sucks they're in such bad lighting, we probably won't get our first real look until Eaglemoss does something.

    The design is nearly identical to the K't'inga from the front.

    It doesn't appear to have a bridge window, unless that's what the red stripe of lights on the top dome is, but that's also on the K't'inga in TMP.

    Good pics. The lit area at the front of the shuttle bay box also looks green instead of the traditional red. Most visible on the ship on the rightmost side of the wide shot.

    Almost every Klingon bridge we've seen has been lit in red.

    I like the nacelles myself.
