    I enjoyed reading Shon’s speech, the ship its self doesn’t really appeal to me.

    That big grin on Shon's face looks so...bizarre. He doesn't strike me as the crowd pleasing type.

    Also interesting they put Captain Esser in an old pre-Odyssey 2409 uniform, and with black gloves no less. Wonder why they did that instead of giving him the Odyssey dress uniform. Section 31 operative, perhaps?

    I wouldn't be surprised, I'd imagine it'd be heavily science based, such a tree could be quite good for space wizards.

    "She's a quirky design, but she checks out."

    I actually thought they'd just lifted the name and 23rd Century version was going to be the Somerville class, but obviously not.

    I'm torn on this design tbh. I love the greebly details on the middle ring areas but those nacelles are WAY WAY too dammed big, it's like it's trying to compete with the Risan Corvette or something.

    Stats should be interesting to see, does it come with a spore drive or something? I'm guessing a fast, nimble science raider type ship; possibly like the Lukari one we saw from the colony world?

    I was watching some STO video about the Shran and the Magee, and in the comments section someone made a point of the insanity of this style of ship. Running the Power Transfer Conduits, and the warp nacelles themselves through the saucer section makes no sense. Having to cross THROUGH the nacelles to get to the outer edges of the saucer is stupid. That's not a problem in the case of the Somerville, but having the the Power Transfer Conduits running through the saucer is still craziness. It was also pointed out that the "Warp Core" and associated fuel supply and storage systems are massive pieces of machinery that would take up a substantial portion of the aft section of any 'saucer-only' design. As a point of reference, the MARS on the Galaxy Class cuts through 17 decks from the top of the main deuterium tank near the main photon torpedo launchers down to the antimatter storage pods at the bottom of the secondary hull. Most of the height is used for matter/antimatter stream compression. It can get very technical, and the weeds can get very thick. "Here there be dragons!"

    The gist of it is this: Given the specifications and theories of warp fields and power generation, ships like the Pilot Escorts are insane, unworkable, unstable, unlivable designs. As someone that loves and flies Pilot Escorts, I agree. (Except for the Defiant. The Defiant suffers from the same design stupidity, but she's just too awesome to dissect.)
    And THIS is why I'm 52 and single.
