    Oh, good grief. We're talking about an illustration on a fake certificate in a fake museum display that's just to promote the show. It's not like it's an actual hero ship. It's an incidental detail in something that isn't even onscreen. I'm done wasting my energy arguing over something this stupidly unimportant.

    A bit strange attitude for someone who has made a career of writing stories about fake people on fake starships, but OK.

    You're assuming Eaves submitted it to be used specifically on that certificate, I find that unlikely. He most likely resubmitted it to be used in the modern period of show, and the artist who made the certificate probably just grabbed that art without thinking or knowing it wasn't appropriate for the era.

    I haven't seen the extended episode in question, so I don't know.

    Memory-Alpha says it was active in the 2320s like the Picard Museum does. So the episode probably gave some sort of indication of when it was.

    Some of the Info/art at the Museum also came from John Goodman's Picard Autobiography, this may have as well.

    Yes, that certainly is possible, even likely. And in that case it was that person's mistake.

    And yes, I know that it is just a background prop, but these props are the sole topic of this thread.

    interstellar travel has usually been treated more like getting on a ship, or at least an airplane, not something most people do everyday. The Navy and sailors in general still make note of crossing the equator for the first time even though people do it all that time. It's just part of traditions meant to develop service culture. The lightspeed club probably originated early on when warp was much more rare and stuck around because it's what Starfleet has always done and a nice way to note your first step into the fleet.

    Obviously, Artists come in a variety of molds, from a multitude of backgrounds and have different ways of going about elucidating their Art.

    Seems to me that this conversation is like trying to describe an elephant to a blind man...
    Depending on which part he happens to be touching.

    I'm not sure it counts as a mistake. Especially in a post-Disco world, Trek ship design is whatever they want for whatever era they want. Eaves probably submitted a ton of old sketches and a graphic designer probably dropped one at random into a certificate.

    Good point! The Navy also celebrates traversing the international dateline and other meridian lines in “Shellback Ceremonies”. As Starfleet is ostensibly a spiritual descendant of the US Navy, it makes sense that they would have similar onboard rituals for space-related first-timer “Pollywogs”. :)

    It’s too early to say that. We haven’t seen any ships from Picard yet except for what I assume are Romulan ships, and a Borg Cube.

    We haven’t seen the ships in lower decks either.

    Good. Now people who do find it important can discuss it without being annoyingly put down by you.

    We kinda sorta see the ship that Picard and his new "crew" fly into the Borg Cube in the trailer.
    (though it's quite a ways away from the camera)

    There's another shot from within the Cube that might well feature the hero ship. Perhaps by comparing that one with this exterior shot, we could spot the ship that isn't one of 'em level-winged BoPs.

    Ah, ok, I see it now. It is definitely small, but it looks like a runabout or shuttle with nacelles underneath.

    Yeah. I hope we get an official looks before the series airs. Maybe another trailer or something.

    A Borg Cube is Massive, even the Enterprise-E looked minuscule next to one.



    I would imagine that the supposed Freighter that Picard & Crew are flying in would be at least a bit smaller than the E-E.

    I doubt a five-person ship would be that big.
