Default Post TNG Galaxy Class MSD

Hi folks,

New here, but I've been registered for a while, waiting for my account to be activated. Now suddenly I can post!

I thought I'd share my recently completed MSD with you as I think you will all appreciate it. I'll probably tweak it and add more LCARS to it as time passes, but for now I'm glad this 4 week project is finished.

Now, the story behind this ship is that it was on of the Galaxy Class ships speed built and pressed into service for the Dominion war with only 25% of its interior finished, the basic bits it needed to function.
Now, its just coming out of a 2 year refit that has seen its interior finished and is ready for exploration and patrol duties. So the interior will not exactly match that of the Enterprise D. But who says every ship must be identical?



Close ups of the detail:




Enjoy

In that second pic you have the Enterprise equipped with Charles Xeiver's Cerebro Chamber?

Actually there is nothing that says the ships must be absolutely identical, even if they are the same class. When a particular class of ship has been in production for a long time, you're usually going to find improvements and changes made after one batch of ships is produced.

You can just take a look at the Los Angeles class attack subs. There are literally 3 different major variations between them. With the Nimitz class carriers, there were apparently significant changes made when the USS Theodore Roosevelt was built that the Theodore Roosevelt and the carriers built after it are sometimes called the Theodore Roosevelt class althrough they are still officially Nimitz class carriers. The USS Ronald Reagan, one of the more recent Nimitz class carriers, has even further changes to it over her predicessors.

Perhaps the most unique example of ships would be the fleet boat submarines of the USN during WWII. Captains were given such a great deal of latitude in customizing their boats, that no two subs were exactly alike.

Now there's a thought. "Captain Picard, I'd like you to meet...Captain Picard?"

It's a really nice MSD. Certainly, there's nothing to say every Galaxy class would be identical to her sisters. The design's inherent flexibility was to encourage that.

What did McCoy say...Engineers, they love to change things.
