    Ohh I thought they meant the front centre, not the bottom.

    I want it very badly in STO.

    But again, it will probably be in a Lockbox.

    Some ships have to look ugly for the pretty ships to be special.

    I hope they scale that USS Archer down to a appropriate size if you're only going to run it with 3 people.

    Having a look at the Archer, there aren't any windows/viewports on the ship that would suggest the ship would be too big for three people. It might not be that much bigger than a Danube-class Runabout of the 24th century.

    With only one nacelle, won't the Archer chase its own tail at warp speeds? Can it even generate a stable warp field? It's not a unicycle!

    Of course it can. Because this is all fake and the ship can do whatever the writers and producers say it can.

    Or the ship is mostly automated.

    According to Memory Alpha, two more ships are mentioned by name:
    SS Puget Sound, a colony ship. According to WIkipedia, "Puget Sound" is a real place located on Earth's Pacifica region in North America.
    USS Martin Luther King Jr. - Ensign Chin-Riley's assignment. If we use Una's biography from the novels into account, this ship was active in the 2240s. The ship is named for a 20th century civil rights activist in the United States, who was assassinated in the 1960s. Is this the longest canonical ship name ever?

    I hope Starfleet would keep their ship names down to three syllables or less. Imagine calling the ship for an emergency beam-out only to get gunned down before you can get to the sixth syllable! :eek:


    This is true. Good point. :)

    Wait, U.S.S. Martin Luther King, Jr but just U.S.S. Archer?

    If one nacelle is a problem, then how does one explain the USS KELVIN.
    (or the USS FREEDOM as well)

    I imagine that is why La'an called it the "King, Jr.".

    Propelled by Captain Robau's sheer bald awesomeness.

    Do you have a better explanation? :)

    Warp nacelles aren't conventional engines, only creating a warp field for the ship to travel in.

    Freedum? That is Yang worship word. You will not speak it. :lol:

    I always understood you needed a pair of them to warp space properly to provide thrust. I may be remembering improperly, but wasn't the NX-01 rendered dead in the water when one nacelle was damaged?

    Single nacelle ships remind me of outboard motors on boats.

    The two nacelle thing only became a thing when Roddenberry got jealous over the popularity of the Starfleet Technical Manual by Franz Joseph. We even get the name and NCC number of one of the scouts from the book in TMP.
