    So she's a Tactical Cruiser now? I guess that makes her more of a competitor or alternate class to the Nebula class than a true successor to the Miranda class. Out of curiosity, have you figured out the registry of the U.S.S. Broadsword?

    Ooh, and I almost forgot; I love the 4th image down and the text that went with it.

    Any chance of a Star Trek Legacy mod?

    Are you kidding, this should have been the Nebula Class!

    Haven't thought of other registries, no. in fact, i think I should have mafe this one in the 7XXXX range, 6XXXX might be too low for a Galaxy class contemporary!

    The 4th image - heh. I was fiddling with Bryce and that... thing...sort of started forming all by itself. :) I don't know what it is, why should the captian?! ;)

    I don't know what "Star Trek Legacy Mod" means.
    And, I agree with your last sentence! :)

    ^ Legacy is a game and Draco wants to see someone whip up a (more or less) low-poly CG model of this ship for use in that game in place of the stock ships. And I don't blame him. THis would make an excellent addition to the already large STL modding community. Awesome ship, as always. :)

    Actually, considering that the Claymore is in the 69XXX range, and that the U.S.S. Galaxy has a registry of NCC-70637, the two are actually pretty close together. The U.S.S. Galaxy was probably well within the planning stage at the time that the Broadsword was laid down, and by the time that she was launched, the Galaxy might have been laid down at the time. So the Broadsword could have been a contemporary, but still launched first due to being less complex. Besides, I see ships as early as the Challenger class as existing partly to test components that would later be used on the Galaxy class. The New Orleans, Challenger, Nebula, and maybe a few other classes that I've forgotten, all have registries lower than the Galaxy, and so were most likely made earlier, but are still considered contemporaries non-the-less.

    And I just loved the sense of humor that the text for the 4th image down had. And I'm with the captain; I can't wait to see who that thing belonged to, though I doubt anyone is going to come forward to reclaim it. Attacking a Starfleet vessel unprovoked is a serious offense.;)

    It's probably another First Federation buoy. Those things sure are annoying!

    What are you talking about?! The UFP and First Federation had diplomatic talks after their first encounter.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the First Federation later became a member(s) of the Federation!

    And everybody cleans up all their mines after they're done with them?

    Not exactly.

    In terms of spare parts for kitbashing, the matchbox Sea Arrow is a toy plane with a tail that would make nice warp nacelle pylons.

    Unfortunately, that is so true. In which case, the First Federation has two options: deny that it is theirs, or admit that they made a mistake.
