    That was a different, male Captain Shelby. However, Shelby and her first officer appeared on screen in LD 2x05 "An Embarrassment of Dooplers" .

    Going from Captain to Admiral in 20ish years isn't unreasonable

    Kirk was promoted to Admiral after 5 years of commanding the enterprise.

    Kinda interesting with the Excelsior comparison, since according to this video posted by Dave Blass, one of the Odyssey-class starships is the USS Hikaru Sulu NCC-92420. He got an even bigger ship! :D

    She was a 5 star fleet admiral.. Not a minor one. 20 years to go throigh the admiralty ranks is not unheard of.

    I don't hate it, I agree there's nothing to love and it's going to be thrown under the bus so soon, meaning it's hard to get attached to it.

    I agree with @Dukhat. It's a background ship and nice for that. '

    I don't really get why the ship at the centre of the ceremony had to be an Enterprise.

    Anyone else find it silly the Enterprise F's flybys were done in slow motion? Like they were intentionally trying to let the ship nuts have as long a look at the ship as possible.
    Huh, just looked up the transcript for the episode, and you're right, Captain Shelby is referred to as "he." Which is odd, Ron Moore said it was meant to be a reference to Shelby from TBOBW and it was after the episode aired that Pocket Books got in contact with the DS9 writers and said "what the hell? You told us we could use Shelby in the New Frontier books because there were no plans for her on the show." But if the character was referred to as "he" then why did Pocket Books get so upset in the first place?
    Frontier Day is the anniversary of the Enterprise NX-01's launch. Makes sense for the current Enterprise to be the main attraction at the celebrations.

    I was an outspoken critic of the Galaxy-class for a long time, but in recent years my view has started to change with CGI fan art showing it with more dynamic cameras and lighting than they were able to get in the show with physical models and a TV budget.

    Plus, it's now the only starship to have made me cry... :wah:

    Did anyone notice the reinforced prow on the Saucer?

    Almost like they have a feeling sooner or later one of those ships is going to pull a Worf/Deanna maneuver.

    :lol:

    Those look gorgeous. I can pretty much pin point the minute I thought the Galaxy class wasn't so bad.....

    The Odyssey class looks like the Sovereign went out for a week-long drinking binge and came back bloated as hell.

    Frontier Day is the anniversary of “Starfleet.” There is nothing at all in the show stating that it has to do with the NX-01’s launch. Unless they’re retconning the founding of Starfleet as 2151 instead of the actual date it was founded.

    Shelby literally called out the launch of the NX-01 being the reason for celebration.
