What is your thoughts about the Galaxy Class Design.... PErsonally I think with a Few mods and cutting away a bit of the fat would make it a Great class of Ship

Yes I know I spelled the Galaxy Class title wrong but I don't know how to change it

Not an overly bad design; my biggest complaint is that its saucer is too big. I like the Dreadnought from "All Good Things..." because that third nacelle helps to balance it out.

As with Voyager when TNG first aired it took some getting used to the new design but I really do like it. Honestly, while I don't think it is a totally bad design, I prefer the D to the E.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?

The E was the Logical evoloution of the galaxy if you ask me.... the E's more streamlined but it still mabages to do what the D did....and Mitchz95 I agree Tht third nacelle Made the Bttom look more propotional to the saucer

By that good you mean easy to change up the decals for another ship, just like the other built models?

Ok Granted there is that.... But they're one of the longest serveing desgins StarFleet has used is it not? ah yes it is...... Almost a Century of Excelsior Class Starships that has to be quite a few...... I think I've proved my Point that the Excelsior is one of the best All the way around no matter what you look at.....

I tend to compare the Excelsiors to the Mirandas...very big in their day, but now tend to get oneshotted during major battles. I think the two are more like Frigates than big useful cruisers.

I Don't Consider the Excelsior Class Frigates nessacarily.... After 100 years a good portion of the fleet is bound to be excelsiors.... kinda hard not to have them involved everywhere I would think

I could say the same of Mirandas. Though we did see more Excelsiors than Mirandas on TNG...I consider Excelsiors to be "multi-purpose frigates".

Why is the main bridge always right at the very top of the ship in the most venerable spot? Since they use a view screen and they are not actually looking out a window to see what's in front of them then why not bury the main bridge in the center of the ship. Somewhere safer in an attack. The Battle Bridge would be a more practical location in my opinion.

I keep reading that in novels. The explanations I read always are something similar to the symbolisim of having the bridge at the top.


I also suppose that Starfleet, being (at least on paper) more scientific than military, reflect a none-aggresive style in it's ship design. Could also be flat-out arrogance on the part of Starfleet...
