    If They think it's going to be really popular, it'll be in a Lockbox. :mad:

    I got a Lifetime sub when STO first came out and bought every ship They put in the Store.

    But once They started doing the Lockbox thing, I drifted away from playing.

    It’s in a lockbox. I bought it off the exchange with EC I had saved up

    It seems to be shorter than the length given in the Eaglemoss book, I’d say around 600 instead of 640, since the Gaiaxy is 640 and the Parliament is shorter.

    I saw this pointed out on TrekYards, but that not-quite Parliament class ship docked at Starbase 25 has a modified Centaur saucer

    I've said that ship reminds me of a cross between a New Orleans class (from those things sticking off the saucer) and maybe a Nebula class. YMMV of course. Def some similarity to the Centaur, which is one of my favorite on-screen kitbashes.

    Also, if this is a Centaur upgrade of sorts, with late 24th century warp nacelles and impulse engines and perhaps strip phasers but the same hull, the size makes sense in comparison with the Maquis raider and the Kumari variants both, being a bit over 200 meters long. Those are some tiny Daedaluses, tho...

    According to TrekYards, the designer of Vanguard designs does not have a name.

    They also didn't mention that it was used in TOS-Remastered

    The designer's name is lost to the anals of history?

    Somebody should go dig it up if they have access to the right resources.

    You're quoting the original designer ;)

    The Aeroshuttle was always canon. We saw it attached to the bottom of Voyager in literally every episode! :p :D

    TrekYards loves the word canon.

    Everytime one of the new show uses a TOS version of a design (usually Lower Decks) instead of the Discovery version Samuel loves to say it's been 'recanonized'.

    The latest Star Trek productions love to shove in Discovery Shuttles / Ships into everything where they shouldn't have been.

    Picard taking a Discovery Era Shuttle instead of a more recent era shuttle for a Taxi in ST:PICARD.

    ST: Discovery showing all the Discovery Era StarShips in the StarShip junk yard instead of more recent era StarShips.

    The Discovery production staff go out of there way to never show 24th century or even TOS designs.

    Where did LDS show a TOS version of a DIS design? I only remember PIC showing the Discoprise.
