I never realized this but it reminds me of the Bonnaventure from TAS.
Well according to DS9's Visual Effects Supervisor David Stipes, the class is 190.5m long. But according to the DS9 tech manual, it's 365m long.
Typical DS9 conflicting sizes.
The DS9 tech manual is notorious for having wrong ship lengths.
It was also the first time I saw a number of the Wolf 359 and other frankenfleet designs that I thought were just random ugly-ass kitbashes someone put together in CorelDraw to fill page space. Little did I know they were based on real filming miniatures that were nothing more than 3-pixel blurs on the old NTSC (or PAL) TV screens!
Saber class is also on the lower ring, so it's not going to be on the same scale as the ships along the outer ring.
Have you noticed that we didn't see Captain's ready room on Titan-A?
That explains it. At first glance I thought it was smaller than the BoP.
The scale vis-a-vis the 1701-A and the Titan-A seems about right in the shots we see. The later ship is definitely about twice the length and her saucer section is much larger than the 1701-A's even though the windows on both look basically the same size.
We're not ready for it yet.
It's on the blueprints for the set, but they never built it.
The fourth one looks like the Insignia class (creator’s but unofficial name) / Chimer class (name from that Fluidic Space online game).
Anyone recognise the Akira class? Registry looks like NCC-73642.
Yep, that was my first thought. Since the ship was featured in one of the SOTL calendars, it’s not a stretch to think that’s what the silhouette was inspired by.
And the Insignia-class was itself inspired by a "future starship concept" from the TNG Technical Manual (bottom left), so it seems apropos.
Something was funky with that screen, it's unusually, um, wrong, for this season.
That is indeed really weird.
Thank you for straining your eyes go get the registries!
The Trekyards video review is just them clapping, which I thought was sweet.
I have it on good authority that the guy who made that display was smoking some kick-ass weed.
I thought it was cringy
I find those two incredibly annoying. The smugness is just too much for me. Out of morbid curiosity I checked out their livestream tonight and the first thing I hear is the declaration that this proves SNW is an alternate timeline, this is fixing the mistake of the Discoprise, bla bla bla....
Yeah, they're dreadful.
