    But her mannerisms have next to nothing in common with Jurati. The only thing they have in common is that they're both blonde white women with frizzy hair.

    I get that you’re not seeing what I saw.

    It's not there. The closest any SNW character comes to resembling Jurati is Uhura. And even that's pretty tenuous; none of the SNW characters have the combination of introversion, loneliness, and self-loathing Jurati has.

    I don’t know what to tell you. I saw something that you didn’t. I’m not sure what else to say about the matter. The only thing that seemed different to me was that Chapel wore a tight-fitting Starfleet medical uniform, while Jurati wore some large mumu-looking scientist uniform. Everything else seemed similar to me. I can’t help that you didn’t see what I saw. Making an absolute statement such as ‘it’s not there’ is irrelevant to me if I saw it and you didn’t.

    Yeah, Jurati is a whole other kettle of fish. She lacks that swagger that Chapel has, and even when nervous Chapel still manages to assert a confidence during crisis situations throughout the season. Jurati, well, that's a whole other topic.

    But you haven't said what similarity you saw other than their hair. You just keep repeating that you saw it without defining what "it" is.

    The Maddox had this to say about Chapel and Jurati.

    I did say it. Her look and her mannerisms reminded me of Jurati. The actresses resemble each other (and not just their hair color), and the way Chapel was speaking to other people gave off a Jurati vibe to me. If you don’t agree, that’s not my problem.

    Both actors are also from former British Colonies. :shrug:

    I don't see anything similar between them personality wise either.

    What mannerisms?

    I mean, they're both white women with dyed blonde hair. That's about it.

    In what way? I'm honestly trying to see what you're taking about and I have no idea where you're coming from. What specifically about the way she spoke was similar to Jurati?

    Jesus Christ, dude, get over it. It’s how I felt. I don’t need to justify my feelings to you. Let’s get back to talking about starships already.

    That is a very cool Miranda design variation. Don’t think I’ve ever seen that one before.

    Cool kitbash. I would've thought a hospital ship would keep both shuttlebays though.

    Yeah, I’m not quite sure how getting rid of one shuttlebay and adding a little fin on top suddenly makes a standard Lantree-type Miranda a hospital ship, but that’s me ;)

    If I were to guess, the second shuttlebay area was repurposed for planetary mass-casualty events requiring LOTS of multi-level bed spaces, high-volume industrial transporters, and special-needs applications for more alien environmental considerations than the usual Ox/Nit atmospheric requirements. You couldn't provide that kind of customized emergency support inside a conventional shuttle bay.

    As for the little fin on top? ... Um... I got nothin'. :D

    Edit: Well, now that I look closer, this vessel doesn't appear to have any weapons to speak of. Not even a single bank of defensive phasers. So, I suspect that the fin (along with the other bumpy bits on the dorsal side) is probably an enhanced deflector shield booster, just in case they come under attack from superior forces while performing an evacuation. These objects probably also have the ability to extend shields around other nearby disabled ships being cleared. It could buy them the extra time they need to save everyone and pop smoke. That may be the kind of ship you would want to take into a Kobayashi Maru simulator. It's possible that it could hold its own against 3 K't'inga's before going foom.

    While unseen through the outer skin, this ship may also possess thicker under-armor to prevent kinetic attacks as well.

    In an alternate timeline where Pike remains in command of the Enterprise during the Romulan incursion of 2266, Kirk was given command of a starship called USS Farragut NCC-1647.

    The class of that alternate future Farragut is coming to Star Trek Online and has received a name: the Farragut class!

    For gameplay purposes, it is the tier-6—rated Farragut Temporal Cruiser. Weblink: https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11527973

    I have a feeling that it wasn't actually Farragut Class, and Paramount just didn't have a name for it yet, so Cryptic had to come up with a name.

    But hey, you never know, maybe someone at production did call it the Farragut Class.

    Yeah I feel the STO Dev's chickened out here in that we didn't also get the single nacelled USS Archer Scout ship from the premiere episode of SNW.

    (IE They don't want to risk the anger of fans of the Gene Roddenberry Starfleet Two Warp Nacelles Rule instituted after he found out Franz Joseph wanted a royalty fee to use is designs from the original Star Trek technical manual in Star Trek The Motion Picture.)
