Hey all, back again with some more TOS goodness for you. After fighting to maintain some semblance of motivation and focus, I’ve finished my take on Antares. Now here, with such an infamous name, I think it bears repeating that everything I present here on this blog conforms to my own personal interpretation/view of the Trekverse. I don’t try and pass it off as gospel, nor would I. The beauty of this ‘fanon’ realm we all inhabit is that there’s room for infinite interpretations of just about everything.
So with that said, here’s my take on Antares.
Also, for a quick review on just why the name is so infamous and just how much baggage is attached to it, head on over to the ASDB’s Antares page right here.
As I mentioned in my annotations, it’s not covered in the Hobbyist’s Guide………. but a Corvette derivative (Procyon) is instead. After some thought, I’ve decided to include that too, as a replacement for my Romulan War-era Mercury (I’m not really a fan of the Oberth-derived ‘Class II’ designs). There is also a clearer path forward from here – going to Okinawa and finally, La Fayette.
All that aside though, I think the next class I’m going to focus on is the Federation class Dreadnought. This, then Procyon (or whatever I decide to call it) and that should be it for TOS stuff.
