Class I Lineup

Hey all, as I’m getting close to finishing up the ‘State of the Fleet’ and about ready to dive into overviews by type (Cruiser, Frigate etc, if you’re familiar with the general format of SoTSF), I thought I’d shoot out the list of classes I’m planning to include (my ‘to do list’ going forward).  This is pretty well fixed and I won’t be making any additions.  If anything, I might remove or reclassify certain classes, but that’s unlikely right now.

Also, you’ll notice that I’ve included a number of stations at the end as well…….their inclusion is a tentative idea right now that I’m not sure I’ll stick with (have every one of them except Keppler/K-Type written up)

Aside from that, the only thing to note are some of the oddball classification abbreviations.  The London class has three, denoting its uses as a Troop Transport (TTR), Freighter (FG) and Hospital Ship (AH).  I also put down the Sherman class as an ‘FGD’ for Freighter-Drone befitting its general acceptance as a ‘cargo drone’.  For the Cahuya and Antares (this one) class Surveyors, I turned to wikipedia (link) and put both down as ‘AGS’ denoting them as ‘surveying ships’.

Also, it seems fortuitous that I went ahead and removed pretty much all of my material from TNG forward.  I’ve been trying to access longtime resource/file repository BCFiles and finally found my fears confirmed.  From what I’ve been able to gather, FileFront’s sites for games like Bridge Commander, Command & Conquer et al. were designed/built in a rather byzantine fashion and could not be easily upgraded/changed in any way – trying to fix/modify one thing, would break 3 or 4 others.  Finally after so long, they passed the point of no return and their masters took everything off line.  This forum thread spells everything out.  As I’ve mentioned though, with my new ‘enlightened’ philosophy on Starfleet’s evolution combined with the many excellent orthos and schematics already out there from artists and designers such as ‘admiral-horton’, Neale Davidson (Jaynz) and others, there’s really no need for me to go browsing through in-game screenshots for inspiration.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.
