I have a 24" x 36" poster titled " Federation Starship Recognition Chart " that is probably from around the time of Star Trek III ( because it has Excelsior on it ).

This poster has a 2D silhouette of a ship that has a deflector nacelle on top and warp nacelle on bottom. Since it is 2D I can't tell whether it has ONE or TWO warp nacelles, but I will assume it has one. The caption for the ship is... Pytheas Class -- MKIII/01 Light Cruiser.

While this link looks similar to the ship on my poster, there are some differences. The warp nacelle is a bit further back on my poster and the one in the link is closer to the saucer, so the link DOES have TWO warp nacelles.

This one is close...

The next TV Series should be called STARFLEET!

It's clear, the U.S.S. Kelvin was high class. I never heard any distinction given in extraneous materials, but maybe I just glossed over it.
There have been men before … who got so interested in proving the existence of God that they came to care nothing for God himself… as if the good Lord had nothing to do but to exist. There have been some who were so preoccupied with spreading Christianity that they never gave a thought to Christ. - C.S. Lewis
