I love the folding nacelles! I love the Captain's ready room.


 


The overall exterial design however, I think look like a giant sperm.

In my opinion, the best looking ship in Star Trek (exterior) is the Enterprise NX-01. The Vulcan ships are amazing too! That dark red color..

Rediculous opinions of a brat:


 


1. Landing a starship is just silly.


2. No need to be sleek in space, but perhaps needed more since Voyager could land.


3. Nacells were pretty cool. I just figured there was some advantage to lowering them when not at warp, perhaps for manoverability.


4. Only warp 10? Surely by Janeway's time they could exceed Kirk's speed.


5. Loved the interior, except maybe the engine room. Engine room kindof lost the mystery and vastness of the warp reactor.


Where did they keep that endless supply of shuttles?


TVless brat. (And you thought Neelix was annoying.)

The warp speed scale from Kirk's time was different from the one in TNG. That's why Kirk and the old Enterprise were over warp 13 (warp 20+ if you saw TAS)

smaller, more compact, quick and can definately pack a punch. I'd say those large galaxy class ships become too much of a pile of scrap parts keepin her afloat. Voyager was well designed.

I wouldn't say the Galaxy Class  was a bunch of Scrap parts.... Just look at The Excalibur.... With Mac Calhoun...... A Stinking God punched a Hole through the saucer section and beat the rest of it to high heven..... Albiet his ship is a souped up version of the Galaxy class..... But Still the Intrepid class i think could be Versitile if you need a wepons platform stip it of the luxury stuff and install the weapons.... if not keep it the way it is

The Excalibur isn't canon, but I agree the Galaxy class has good firepower. I think the biggest flaw with those ships is that they aren't very maneuverable. That's why the Odyssey failed - it wasn't fast enough to evade the Jem'hadar kamikaze attack.

What Would you classify as Canon..... And if all we talked about was canon then we'd have nothing to talk about..... And I'm not talking bout the one from STO I'm talking about the one from the books.... Still I'll agree with the not manuverable point... soup it up though and i bet you can get a bit more manuverability out of it

The Intrepid class is the best type of ship.  They had to make it tough to withstand 7 years of no yard time.  The bio neural gel packs are a plus too (fast response).  What if the Defiant had those?

A lot of books don't contradict what's been shown on the screen, but still, the official franchise policy is that novels, comics, short stories or anything along those lines is not considered canon. Here's an official quote from startrek.com:


"As a rule of thumb, the events that take place within the live-action episodes and movies are canon, or official Star Trek facts. Story lines, characters, events, stardates, etc. that take place within the fictional novels, video games, the Animated Series, and the various comic lines have traditionally not been considered part of the canon. But canon is not something set in stone; even events in some of the movies have been called into question as to whether they should be considered canon! Ultimately, the fans, the writers and the producers may all differ on what is considered canon and the very idea of what is canon has become more fluid, especially as there isn't a single voice or arbiter to decide. Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was accustomed to making statements about canon, but even he was known to change his mind.


In the publishing world, there used to be two exceptions to the novel rule: the Jeri Taylor-penned books 'Mosaic' and 'Pathways.' Many of the events in these two novels feature background details of the main Star Trek: Voyager characters and were to be considered as references by writers on the show. Now that the show is over, some of those events may never be incorporated into a live action format, so the question of whether details from these novels remain canon is open to interpretation.


With regard to the Animated Series, there are a few details from the episode 'Yesteryear,' written by D.C. Fontana, that reveal biographical background on Spock and planet Vulcan. Details from this episode have been successfully incorporated into the canon of Star Trek (such as in 'The Forge') and now that the Animated Series is out on DVD, we hope that even more can make its way in!"

Alright But I didn't ask For Startrek.com's Definaition Of Canon I asked For YOUR defintion of canon....... I'm just saying i don't understand why We can't incorperate EVERYTHING that's contributed by authors can't be considered canon..... Still I think New Frontier would make a Great Series if they where going to make a new series ever

Well the short answer is that you CAN't incorporate everything because with over 30 years of fiction, Authors tend to contradict one another. Take for example the Shatnerverse. No one thinks those books should be canon, at least no one I've ever met.


Personally I like to think of the Vanguard series as canon, just as much as TAS. TAS is an official Trek production, but VAN fits in perfectly with TOS, and the story an characters are much more engaging than any other original characters I've read. There's a few others that I like, but I don't have to think of it as canon or non canon to enjoy it. If it fits, and Trek will probably never officially contradict it, I don't see why  a fan can't think of it as canonical.

I like the sleek design and especially the movable nacelles!  Also, how many other Federation starships can actually land on, and take off from, a planet?  I never liked the biogel computers, though, so I'm glad they were replaced with the isolinear system.
