Ship Sources

 

loknarFASA

As a FASA starship combat website, the prime source for ships and the history is FASA, while dates have been tweaked to match the current Okuda chronology, the history is an embellished version of FASA’s. The design of some ships has been modified as some linear warp drive equipped FASA ships were too early, so ‘retro’ versions have been created.


dwStarfleet Battles

Another unique universe, some ships from this have been slotted into this variation of the FASA universe, although with modifications to dates and to equipment.


Star Trek: Remastered

Designs from Star Trek: Remastered will be used were appropriate


bonaventureStar Trek: The Animated Series

The ships from this exist in this version of the Universe


kelvin-1The Kelvin Universe

Given the existing complexity of merging disparate technologies and timelines into one in the Prime Universe, I’ve opted not to include the Kelvin Universe with two exceptions, one being the Einstein Class (Kelvin type) and the other being the Franklin type, as both classes exist prior to the  divergence of the timelines.

However, to keep the Einstein in line with the prime universe, it’s size has been reduced and its technology has been tweaked to make it resemble its contemporaries such as the Horizon (2190).


nxEnterprise

The Enterprise TV series seems at first glance to seriously contradict the conjectural technical histories of  FASA, the Starfleet Museum and other Treknical sources. However a number of these contradictions can be rationalized as being the result of the NX class being an experimental vessel in many ways (for example the Warp 5 capability and matter/antimatter reactor), other contradictions can also be rationalized quite easily, perhaps the the Phase Cannons are actually less advanced in some way than the FL lasers of FASA technical history. Some things do fit in well, the polarized hull plating is clearly an ancestor of deflector shields.

The current position of the site is to follow the FASA chronology (albeit with corrections made to the years) as combined with the events from the Starfleet Museum it gives the best picture of events between 2161 and 2245. The chronology will of course evolve as the Enterprise series progresses, but as of the end of the first series there are no insurmountable problems for the Earth/Federation histories and technologies. The biggest problem is of course the Klingon D-7 design which has appeared in Enterprise, 90 years before the FASA conjectural commissioning date, but this problem to can be overcome by treating it as a smaller predecessor class (the D-1) that the D-7 later evolved from.


Discovery

The Discovery TV series is at present an unknown quantity, but it should provide a rich hunting ground for new material, but again steps may need to be taken to reconcile it with the conjectural technical histories of  FASA, the Starfleet Museum and other Treknical sources.


Axanar

The Axanar fan film is likely to be included as the timeframe it is set in sits perfectly the era covered by this site


yorktownThe Starfleet Museum

The Starfleet Museum is a project started by Masao Okazaki to document the early history of the Star Trek Universe. His ships were not designed with FASA rules in mind, so although the conversions are as close to the spirit of his designs as possible, some ships have slightly different weapon fits and mass characteristics.

To accommodate some of the ships from the site, there are a couple of instances of class names being repeated (such as the 2206 Horizon Class, which fortunately works given the existence of the Archon class as a refit for the 2190 Horizon class), or sub variants of classes existing (for example a Variant Federation Class)


kremlinEx Astris Scientia

Ex Astris Scientia is Bernd Schenider’s Star Trek site, he hosts the Starfleet Museum, and also has some early ship desigs of his own. Again his ships were not designed with FASA rules in mind, so although the conversions are as close to the spirit of his designs as possible, some ships have slightly different weapon fits and mass characteristics.


baton_rouge_1Space Flight Chronology

This book was published in the early 1980’s by Pocket books. It was the first (and indeed) mass published attempt to fill in the gaps in the Star Trek universe history. Although its dates are incorrect, and many of the designs do not fit with a modern conception of the Star Trek universe, it is still a highly important source as no other book has attempted to replicate the subject matter, and because much the FASA history was taken directly from it. Much of the content of the book is online at The Guardian of Forever.


coronado‘Treknical’ Publications

This site also incorporates a number of ships from Treknical publications such as Ships of the Starfleet, these designs have been fitted into the overall picture where possible without major changes to backstory, there are however sometimes ‘tweaks’ necessary to fit into the FASA Universe.
