Category Archives: Constitution class

The Constitution-class was a Federation Class I Heavy Cruiser in the Starship-class. They were the premier front-line Starfleet vessels in the latter half of the 23rd century. They were designed for long duration missions with minimal outside support and are best known for their celebrated missions of galactic exploration and diplomacy which typically lasted up to five years.

Star Trek: Where No Man has Gone

Where No Man Has Gone Before

When the Enterprise attempts to penetrate a space barrier, it is damaged and creates a potentially worse problem. Two crew members, including Kirk’s best friend, gain psionic powers that are growing at exponentially. This leaves Captain Kirk with the difficult choice; either marooning them or killing before they get so powerful they lose their humanity and become truly dangerous.

Star Trek Orbital Space(Dry)Dock

I have not been idle, I have over the last week being designing a TOS orbital dry-dock, it has the look of Star Trek The Motion Picture in that its a frame, and I have a shuttle docks in the upper central unit, and Solar panels, normally around a planet / Star-base but it also has fusion reactors and other star trek tech you care to add, it has the same diameter as the Star-base inner working I made a few months ago.

Constitution-Class Registry Revisited 2

Someone rightly pointed out too me, that I neglected to include the USS Exeter in the other posted lists, so I have “again” revised this omission and I have added a little more information I checked out.

I cannot take any credit for the research that was done by others who I have listed the main sources I found in a few Star Trek books and websites..

But I will re-post here. click on too enlarge the image they are large

Source list
*. The Making of Star Trek, by Stephen E. Whitfield & Gene Roddenberry  1968
*. The Case of Jonathan Doe Starship by Gregory Jein April 1975
*. Star Trek Star Fleet Technical Manual by Franz Joseph:
*. Federation Ship Recognition Manual: FASA
*. Fan Optional build order
*. Paramount/CBS Canon list: Star Trek Encyclopedia
Debbie Mirek, Michael & Denise Okuda

Individuals whose tireless research and contributions to Star Treks expanded universe gives us much to enjoy and in my case less eye strain and a headache

D.C. Fontana
Bob Justman
Greg Jein
Ruth Berman
Debbie Mirek
Michael Okuda
Doug Drexler
Rich Sternbach
Franz Joseph
Stephen Whitfield
Bjo Trimble

Also my approach for selecting the additional names and Registry’s  is that it should appear in the original list of name suggested by D.C. Fontana and Bob Justman, also Greg Jein and Franz Joseph and official canon where possible.. but mainly to be included in the original Fontana and Justman suggestions. but if I could make changes I would rename the
VALIANT and MERRIMAC going back Fontana / Justman suggestion’s.. or go beyond that and add AmagiEuropa, Forrestal, Hermes, Searcher(?), or one I like Illustrious.

Star Trek Chain of Attack

“Art inspired by one of my favourite Star Trek Novels”

Star Trek: Chain of Attack, Novel by Gene DeWeese

Stranded in a hostile galaxy, the Enterprise is caught up in a deadly interstellar conflict!

While mapping a series of gravitational anomalies, the USS Enterprise is suddenly hurled millions of light years through space, into a distant galaxy of scorched and lifeless worlds… into the middle of an endless interstellar war.

With no way back home, the crippled starship finds itself under relentless and suicidal attack by both warring fleets! And Captain Kirk must gamble the lives of his crew on his ability to stop a war that has raged for centuries – and ravaged a galaxy…

The Enterprise is playing host to Federation Science Council representative Doctor Jason Crandall, an irascible bureaucrat who oversaw the creation of new sensors designed to detect gateways—portals in space, which the Enterprise had previously encountered. The Enterprise is investigating the gateways when it is thrown through one, and ends up in an unknown area of space with extremely dense star formations. After trying unsuccessfully to return through the gateway, the Enterprise sets off to explore the nearby star systems, in hopes of finding the gateways’ creators, and thus a way home. However, all they find are planets rendered uninhabitable through bombardment with fusion bombs, phasers and other weapons. Finally they come across a spaceship, but rather than responding to their attempts at communication, it just attacks. Armed only with lasers, its attacks are ineffective, and so it tries to ram the Enterprise and then when this is ineffective, detonates its warp core.

Background by NASA and manipulated by a friend (Tom).. a quick render.. but the background just set the scene for me.. 2nd and 3rd have minor lighting change.. I am not trying to be picture perfect space shot but to create and interesting image for a view to enjoy.
