The wrecked Connie at Wolf 359, does anybody know, was it ever "officially" given a name. I'm thinking of naming a PL Refit after that ship.

Thanks

I don't remember seeing a Constitution Class at Wolf 359. :confused:
Got any pics that verify that? :)

Links don't work, but I do remember seeing the quick shot of a connie secondary hull just before commercial.

here ya go

The first pic is an engineering hull, the other 2 are a wrecked primary hull, the destroyed Enterprise from ST3 was used for these shots, or so they say.

I've never heard any official or unofficial identification of it. Heck, it's shown in such a fleeting fashion, I'd be amazed if anyone bothered to give it a name.

Me neither.

An Enterprise-class ship, however... :D

I've actually seen it described either way, a refit or redesigned Constitution, or Enterprise class, depends which publication your reading.

If it is an un-named vessel, I'll make up a name and story to go with my model

I'm open to suggestions.

thanks

Yeah, I’m just trying to stir up trouble. ;)

I personally prefer the Enterprise-class nomenclature, but I have begrudging accepted the Constitution-class refit designation as well.

Not meaning to get off-topic, but I do find it ironic that the very use of the term "Constitution-class refit" is an acknowledgement that the design does indeed need to be differentiated from the original Constitution-class. Yet, many (most?) fans seem to argue against the Enterprise-class designation.

Is that the McQuarrie Enterprise in the middle of the 2nd and 3rd screencaps, and an Excelsior proto in the top right of the 3rd cap?

I have numerous good screen captures from the DS9 battle with the Borg at Wolf 359. The shot the concerns me is the suicidal crew in the Oberth class that went up against the Borg.

I know that the following class of ships were at the battle of Wolf 359 - Excellsior, Nebula, Miranda, Oberth, Chyane (?)

To me it looks like a modified Galaxy, and an Excelsior with the engine struts put on upside down.

The pics I posted are from theTNG ep "Best Of Both Worlds". I wasn't a big fan of DS9 so I'm not familiar with any references to Wolf 359 that they may have made

They look great! Two sets just in case you have problems putting the first on, I guess?

As to bring up an old thread, I don't have a problem with it. If you're referring to my being perturbed a couple days back about old threads being brought back, it was because four threads about the exact same subject were brought back to the surface.
