    When you manage to get more pictures for this, are you going to be fan-publishing or just leaving it online?

    Umm...

    Well, yeah, I've done entries on the DSC designs, including an excuse or two for the hero ship herself. But the new fact that there has been no Klingon war before 2257 sorta outdates 47% of everything I have written on the 23rd century ships, and I'm still struggling with that. Let's see if I'll work up the courage to put up an update again nevertheless.

    No, I won't publish. It's just masturbatory desk drawer writing, on a subject that outdates itself every second month anyway. This one will never get finished, although I currently still plan on having it truncate around 2380, so that the Lower Decks ships are all there but most the Picard ones (or DSC S3 ones!) won't be, which slightly limits the scope and the outdating issue.

    I believe this quote answers you: "No, I won't publish."

    I believe that was his response to my question about Fan-Publishing as opposed to updates.

    Ah, I will update. One of these days. But all the DSC stuff is still a bit too much for me to chew. If I get suitably agitated again (and have the time), I might move the goalposts and include Lower Decks and Picard era ships after all, plus revamp the whole backstory to properly accommodate DSC. But for now, I really don't have any good ideas on how to insert all the DSC facts.

    How about something like an 'Alternative universe' section, Starfleet's Department of Temporal Investigations and a number of other dedicated bureaus that have collated and declassified records about other universe' technology once any possible danger had passed?

    Starship Timelines might be a good new title.

    Issued by Temporal agents, the Constitution class from different time lines is shown.

    Bonaventure for a larger TAS ship, Daedalus for TOS, NX-01 for Disco Enterprise.

    The two agents have dissenting views.

    All an excuse to get as much fan art on the page as possible of course
