Starfleet – KD-56 Gryphon Warp Fighter

2 01 2015






While i’m not exactly a fan of the idea of Starfighters within the StarTrek Universe, I am all for them in Sci-Fi in general. And this one, as designed by Andrew Gillespie & GKD Designs, is pretty cool. Great lines and superb detail work.

Not sure if they have any other designs out there, but I would be curious to see what they are able to do with a Starfleet starship.

Starfleet Starfighters? A Starfighter Carrier that deploys from the underside of a Sovereign Class Starship? I dont think this idea sold too well. Not too sure who drew these, some of the ideas arent very original (a Sabre class starship morphed into a Starfighter?) Nevertheless, I thought it would be neat to include these…

Star Trek Online – Guardian Class Cruiser

23 10 2014

Guardian001 Guardian004 Guardian003 Guardian002Starfleet’s Guardian Cruiseris a Tier6 starship that was designed to be a very versatile starship capable of accomplishing nearly any classification of mission. It also features a hybrid Lieutenant Intel/Engineering seat.

The Guardian Cruiser comes equipped with a Particle Conversion Matrix. When activated, your shields will become significantly more dureable, allowing them to absorb more damage for a short time. During this time, any incoming energy weapon fire has a high chance of boosting your own energy weapon damage.

This console can only be equipped on the Guardian Cruiser and the Fleet Guardian Cruiser, but can be put into any of the console slots. You may only equip one of these consoles.

After acheiving level 5 in your Guardian Cruiser, you will unlock the Desperate Repairs starship trait. While this trait is slotted, each time your starship is critically hit you receive a Desperation Counter. Immediately upon receiving a third Desperation Counter you will receive a large hull and shield heal and will be unable to gain Desperation Counters for a while.

Star Trek Online – Dauntless Class – Experimental Science Vessel

21 10 2014

Dauntless001 Dauntless004 Dauntless003 Dauntless002

The original Duantless Class science vessel, discovered by the crew of the U.S.S. Voyager, was actually alien in origin. It featured Quantum Slipstream Drive technology, which was groundbreaking at the time, but ultimately this ship was created using particle synthesis to fool and trap the crew of the Voyager. In 2410, the blueprints for the original alien ship were closely examined and Starfleet Engineering Corps were able to recreate this impressive Tier6 science vessel.

The Experimental Science Vessel comes equipped with a Particle Synthesizer Universal Console which allows your starship to project a particle synthesis beam at a distant target that causes your target and nearby enemies to take on  your starship’s appearance, thus causing tremendous confusion amongst your enemies. Additionally, a photonic decoy of your starship is created near your position to draw the attention of your enemies.

This console can only be equipped on the Experimental Science Vessel and the Fleet Experimental Science Vessel, but can be put into any of their console slots. You may only equip one of these consoles.

After advancing to level 5 in your Experimental Science Vessel, you will unlock the Radiant Nanite Cloud starship trait. While this trait is slotted, causes all hull heals to heal for an additional 25% over 4 seconds in  a 3km radius.

The Experimental Science Vessel comes equipped with a Deteriorating Secondary Deflector MkX. This Secondary Deflector can be equipped on any vessel with a secondary deflector slot.

Star Trek Online – Personal Starship – Modified Exeter Class – U.S.S. Alexandra

26 09 2014

Alexandra001 Alexandra002 (2) Alexandra003




And so the adventure continues…Johnathan Able, now a Lieutenant in Starfleet, has been granted command of the cruiser U.S.S Alexandra, NCC-93062.

She’s named after my 2nd daughter’s middle name…sort of a tradition for this new STO character, as you’ll see with the next couple of ships.

I rather like this design…an upgrade to the old Constitution Class.

Oh, and her’s an updated look at a slightly older Lt. Able…
