    Thanks, Avenger!

    Do you think this ship was a good exploration vessel?

    Yeah, I agree, It was always a ship I liked to produce in droves on the Sins of the Solar Empire mod: Star Trek Armada III.

    I would just like everyone to know that I will be away for the next two or so weeks, unfortunately, that will mean two whole weeks without SFS.

    unfortunately no, but to make up for it next week will be one of the most iconic vessels which means there's loads to write about.

    Thank you for the write up. It was nice to learn more about this class of ship, I remember reading the book about Captain Picard's taking of command but cannot recall the name.

    You know the unexplained business with the 4 nacelles? Well it strikes me as the extra engines might allow it to work well as a tug boat of sorts, perhaps moving large objects such as starbases between systems.
    It sort of reminds me of the Nostromo from Alien, it seems to be a smallish ship that has disproportionately large engines for its size.
    My headcanon is that is was used primarily as a construction support vessel and all those hangers would help keep Worker Bees and shuttles etc close at hand if required.

    I agree Sul, before I wrote this two weeks ago I had always thought of it as a support and worker vessel, I think the reason I saw it as so was that of how I used it in the mod for Sins of the Solar Empire, Star Trek Armada 3. I always used it as a repair boat and would build 5-10 of them.

    As I stated in my last post just before I left for the states I would be covering the most iconic vessel in Star Trek, can you guys guess which one it is?

    Tune in on Sunday the 12th to find out!
