There was a USS Liberator (undoubtedly a Blake's 7 reference) which was lost at Wolf 359. However we never saw the actual ship, only one of its shuttles, also wrecked. Linky
Seems a bit jingoistic for the Federation, don't you?
They already have the Vengeance class...
although, IKS Vanquish and IKS Scourge would make great Klingon ships!
USS Temuera Morrison.
Although in that case it'd be Jangoistic.
Sorry, you made me…
USS Surprise (Starfleet cloaked ship prototype)
I'm surprised the future Federation either TNG or Disco didn't revisit the Vengeance design it was rather oool.
I loved the guns that come out of the saucer on the Vengeance
Since the Vengeance class is largely automated, it would be a massively useful ship for disaster relief and colony support missions. Starfleet would be extremely foolish to just discard it simply because of its wartime origins.
I think it could have been fully crewed as well the automation could probably be scaled back
Oh, yeah? At least Roddy McDowall's death scenes are on camera. Not so with ROSEMARY'S BABY or BENEATH THE PLANET. And like certain many politicians, Zaius ignored critical facts when it suited him. He might win an arm wrestling match with Cornelius, but that doesn't bring negate his dishonorability.
USS Mattie Ross with detachable metallic-limb extension.
Cornelius (not McDowall) ran when then going got tough in Beneath the Planet of the Apes (which was actor David Watson in any case), but Zaius--despite attempting to talk down Ursus from leaping from a militaristic ledge--did not run, or even try to, as Taylor launched the missile. Boss move, deserving a ship named for him. On the other hand, Stafleet would not look too strong naming a ship the U.S.S. 'Got The Hell Outta There, aka the Cornelius.
And there was a previous Bellerophon that was destroyed at Wolf 359. We see it in DS9's pilot ep.
Every time the Bellerophon comes up I am annoyed all over again that the C-57-D doesn't have a real name.
I thought that WAS its name.
Separate names with a comma.
