Yeah, come to think of it. It does look like a KITT bash.

I have to be honest and say that the simpler lines and smoothness of the original Galaxy design is what I prefer by far. It's a little severe and overdesigned for my personal liking.

Though I could see it as perhaps a mirror universe kind of Dreadnought. Especially with the Defiant escorts.

I don't know where the Star Wars Episode II quote came from. What the hay!

Sorry, but I find this design rather unpallatable. It's botched and frankly pretty ugly.

I think it's just trying to be a little too much like Sovereign.

I refer to the Dominion War refit as the Mk 3.
And this is the good looking Hidden Frontier Mark 4:


The Galaxy IV-class dreadnaught is a modification of the Galaxy III-class dreadnaught, which itself is a heavily-modified Galaxy-class explorer.
The Galaxy IV design has a number of design differences from its Galaxy-class forerunner, including:
  • A detachable phaser canon mounted on the underside of the saucer section.
  • A larger impulse engine mounted on the dorsal of the "neck" of the engineering hull.
  • Torpedo launchers atop the saucer section, in proximity to the bridge.
The Galaxy IV differs substantially from its Galaxy III-class predecessor as well. Prominent changes include:
  • The Galaxy III's third warp nacelle is replaced with a large wedge-shaped sensor module, akin to those mounted on some Nebula-class starships.
  • Substantial modifications are made to the power and propulsion systems to compensate for the loss of the third nacelle.
  • The torpedo launchers are moved further apart on the saucer section, addressing concerns that a "lucky hit" could cause substantial damage to the bridge.
In 2384, the USS Excelsior became the first Galaxy III-class starship to undergo this refit at Earth Station McKinley. It was intended to prepare the Excelsior for her participation in Operation Beta Shield. (Star Trek: Operation Beta Shield)
