    Wrong! That was designed by Joshua Samuelson, A.K.A. Madeinjapan1988, not Galen. I am very surprised that no one noticed this. This design sort of later evolved into the Perception class.


    Apparently, A.K.A. the Explorer class.
    http://www.sttff.net/explorer.html
    And it appears that it wasn't quite as abandoned as you determined, because the images on STTFF show what appears to be a more complete model.
    But a model this detailed would most certainly still be in use unless something happened before the artist managed to get her up for downloads or before enough downloads were made to back her up from if the model was lost.

    I've been wondering where more images of this rather enigmatic ship class might be. I've also managed to find some more images here. It appears that the Explorer/Chimera has gone through more than one design phase:
    http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/file/Chimera;15997
    http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/file/Chimera;31174

    Ah yes, the good ol' Refit Excelsior routine. This wouldn't be the first, and probably won't be the last.
    Most of you here probably familiar with the Queenstown sub-class, so I,m not going to bother with that one, but some of you might not be familiar with the Krakow:
    Year: 2010
    Developer: Doctor_McCoy 11, however base model and nacelles come from two different designs developed by WickedZombie45.
    Status: Completed and available for Bridge Commander play download.
    http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/file/Krakow_class;112195

    Now for some more rather enigmatic designs I've found on STTFF, in the faint hopes that some of you might know where to find more images. I've looked but had intermittent to little success.

    The Falkirk-class battlecruiser
    Year: Unknown
    Modeler: Marc Benjamin Rouse
    Status: Apparently completed, but the model appears to have gone off the grid. If the model wasn't lost, it appears to not be available for use.
    http://www.sttff.net/falkirk.html

    The Type II Workbee
    Year: Unknown
    Modeler: Jeff Mackenzie
    Status: Unknown for sure. It looks finished enough to me, but I haven't seen this model anywhere else, so perhaps the author wasn't quite satisfied with it, ended up never finishing it, and it was never put up for others to use (?).
    http://www.sttff.net/workbee.html

    And finally, the Valiant-class escort cruiser/destroyer:
    Year: Unknown
    Author: D. Bates, A.K.A. D. Bates
    Status: Apparently completed. However, I don't see these around very often, suggesting that the model was once available for use, but was lost as one point.

    Thank you! Yes, the Discovery isn´t from Galen, but from Madeinjapan.

    You pointed us some cool ships too. The Queenstown is, in fact, the Excelsior-B, designed and built by Tachy (Cirylle Lefevre) looooong time ago. I still have that mesh, and a Lightwave conversion is available online: http://www.foundation3d.com/index.php?categoryid=38&p13_sectionid=307&p13_fileid=576 ;)

    About the one from Skye Dods, I´ll talk to him and see if there are news. ;)

    Never mind your ship was so old too. :D In fact, from Starfleet´s point of view (if I can say that), Nee´s version looks like a previous version, and yours an evolved, updated version. I say this cause the naceles design. Both ships looks cool, but I think the flipped naceles configuration of Nee´s ship fits better with starfleet standards. ;)

    Ah, but I wanted to buck the standards and do something unexpected!
    Actually, I was gonna say his looks like the more modern ship - more detail and angles, like a post-TNG ship.

    Fom... before 1998 (don´t know exactly the year), the Elsonprise
    Author: Peter Elson
    Status: Finished

    This isn´t, in fact, one of the biggest trek fan-ships, but is an in memoriam hommage to Elson´s work.
    Peter Elson was one of the main influences in my childhood that made my interest in sci-fi to grow up. In my oppinion he was one of the greatest scifi illustrators from all the times. A great miss. If you want to know more about him: http://www.peterelson.co.uk/
