Since it’s been a while since I have regularly posted new content, I thought I would try to get started here today with this superbly detailed MSD of the Centaur Class, rendered by Aexander Richardson (http://lcarsgfx.wordpress.com/).
The Sovereign class‘s first major engagement was the Battle of Sector 001 in 2373, when the U.S.S. Enterprise-E led the fight against a Borg invasion near earth. The Sovereign soon became the standard for which all Assault Cruisers were measured. Now this hallmark ship class gets a upgrade and sets a new standard — the Assault Cruiser Refit: Regent Class.
The Regent Class comes equipped with a Metreon Gas Canisters Console Mod. Metreon Gas is highly unstable, but when properly stored it can be safely replicated and transported. This Console Mod allows you to vent the gas from your Bussard Collectors and ignite it at will. The resulting explosions can be extremely devastating. This Console Mod can be equipped in any console slot. It may only be equipped on Sovereign variants, including the Assault Cruiser and Assault Cruiser Refit.
The Assault Cruiser Refit: Regent Class also comes with a Wide Angle Quantum Torpedo Launcher. This torpedo launcher has been upgraded with a Wide Angle targeting system that allows the torpedo to lock onto targets that would normally be outside of standard firing arcs, providing a 180-degree targeting arc. This launcher can be equipped on any starship, but you may only equip one.
The Assault Cruiser Refit configuration includes the Regent, Sovereign, Noble and Majestic classes.

The original Akira Class Heavy Escort was envisioned as a light carrier and torpedo boat. Although it could be equipped with several torpedo launchers, it never lived up to its full potential, and Starfleet never felt much of a need to engineer its starships as carriers. But a war on multiple fronts have inspired Starfleet engineers to re-envision old designs. Building upon the Akira’s latest prodigy, the Thunderchild, Starfleet has released the latest in a proud line: The Heavy Escort Carrier: Armitage Class.
The Heavy Escort Carrier lives up to pedigree, and finally fulfills its predecessors original role. The Heavy Escort Carrier comes with a single hangar bay with a wing of Peregrine Fighters. Other hanger ships can also be equipped if desired. It is also a powerful torpedo boat that is equipped with a Photon Torpedo Point Defense System. This Console Mod fires a massive photon torpedo barrage at multiple targets in all directions. The Photon Torpedo Point Defense System can only be equipped on the Heavy Escort Carrier. It may be placed in any console slot, but you may only equip one of these mods.
The Heavy Escort Carrier configuration includes the Armitage, Akira, Oslo, and Zephyr classes.

Suricata, check his blog out at suricatafx.com, recently released this updated Evolution Chart of the esteemed U.S.S. Enterprise. He has included the latest addiditon to the family, the Odyssey Class NCC-1701-F from Star Trek Online. Also in there is the Constitution Class from the JJVerse.
Having progressed to Lieutenant Commander within Star Trek Online, and enjoying the newest additions that came out today, I thought I would take this opportunity to show off our current starship: the Federation Science Vessel U.S.S. Rembrandt, NCC-93276. Her design consists of a combination of components from the Aurora Class, the Quasar Class, and the Rhode Island Class starships. We also outfitted her with my Prototype Red Matter capacitor, Enhanced Plasma Manifold, and the new Photonic Dsiplacer Module.
The only Tier3 specialty vessel currently available in the Star Trek Online C-Store, comes the Thunderchild Class. The first U.S.S. Thunderchild was an Akira Class starship that fought the Borg at the Battle of Sector 001 in 2373. The Heavy Escort Refit: Thunderchild Class pays homage to the brave men and women who served aboard that vessel. This ship comes equipped with a Point Defense System. This console activates an automated Phaser Turret Point Defense System designed to defend the vessel from small craft, mines and targetable torpedoes, but that will also target larger vessels as well. This console can be equipped on any escort in any console slot.
The Exploration Cruiser Refit configuration includes the Venture, Galaxy, Celestial and Envoy classes. Unlocking the Exploration Cruiser Refit: Venture Class also unlocks the Venture Class costume for the Exploration Cruiser, the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit, and the Galaxy Dreadnought.
Moving into the Tier 4 specialty starships, we begin with the new Bellerophon Class Long Range Science Vessel
A variation of the Inrepid class, the Long Range Science Vessel Refit: Bellerophon Class takes its name from the U.S.S. Bellerophon, an Intrepid class vessel commanded by Admiral William Ross during the Dominion War. The Bellerophon Class comes equipped with a Nadeon Detonator Module. This console modification allows you to alter a Photon Torpedo so it generates a Photonic Shockwave upon impact. The Nadeon Detonator Module may be equipped on any Science Vessel in any console slot.
