No! I'm Spamacus!

Nope, it is the exact location of my room using a GPS unit. :p
Wesley: "Say good-bye, Data." Data: "Good-bye Data."
Can't remember which episode it was, but it was the one where he was trying to be a comedian but eventually gives up, but ends the episode accidentally taking something too literally.
An Intrepid-class vessel capable of holding 200 crew members, the U.S.S. Voyager is one of the fastest and most powerful starships in Starfleet. Although at 1130 feet long it is about half the size of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D, the Voyager is more technologically advanced than previous Star Trek vessels. Superbly equipped for exploration and research, the Voyager has an equally impressive array of defensive and offensive weapons, making it ready for action.
Voyager is the second of only four Intrepid-class starships built by Starfleet to date, launched Stardate 48038.5 (the year 2371).
My favorite quote of all time ;) 1130 feet long? sure... that would place the E-D at 2260 feet... im thinking no... and having it as one of the most powerful ships? uh, no... it's not really all that combat oriented... but the best part of it all, is that this all came from startrek.com
^ Now that's a good one! :lol: :lol: :lol:
gotta love the Trek discrepancies (uh... spelling?) :)
blurb23...that would place the E-D at 2260 feet... im thinking no...
The published length of a Galaxy-class starship is given at 642.5m, or roughly 2,108ft. For reference, the stated length of the original Constitution-class starships is 288.6m, or 946.8ft. NCC-1701-A was 301.9m or 990.6ft (there is some discrepancy over what class the second Enterprise was; some sources say modified Constitution-class, others say Yorktown or even Enterprise). At any rate, if scale models and drawings are anything to go by, then those numbers are accurate relative to one another (a scale model of 1701-D is approximately 2.12 times the length of a same-scale model of 1701-A). Anyway, 2,000 feet in length isn't all that much of a stretch for a Galaxy-class ship. But none of this changes the fact that Voyager was hardly intended for combat when she was built. So now that I've successfully jacked the thread, another one of my favourite quotes: "Your negotiating skills aren't bad... for a hu-man!" -Grand Negus Zek to Cmdr. Sisko, Rules of Acquisition (DS9) Also from the same episode: "Shame on you!" -Grand Negus Zek to Pel
the galaxy is really more than 2k feet? wow, i always thought it was around the 1.5k range... so then that makes the Warbird 4,000 feet then, since its twice the size
i dont get why there is so much controversy as to what kind of class the E-A was... it was a Connie refit, no doubt... why else would it look the exact same as it did in TMP?
ive always loved the way Ferengi's talk... especially when they babble on about some rule of aquisition :)
A Constitution Class (revision A) refit. Of the U.S.S. Yorktown. 1717. Such as the -B refit of the Excelsior class.
Kirk - Lock and Load. ST:VI The Undiscovered Country. :rolleyes:
Spock - Doctor, would care to assist me in performing surgery on a Torpedo? ST:VI ^ both from memory. :D
i love how (i guess im speaking for all of us) we argue with, with a fiery passion, about what is canon and what isnt, espiecially when this stuff isnt real... and especially since the entire timeline got screwed with Enterprise
blurb23i love how... we argue with, ...about what is canon and what isnt,...
Especially since the Roddenbery couldn't even keep it straight. :D Now Berman doesn't even seem to be trying. :rolleyes:
and we still continue to argue over, literally, NOTHING. :lol:
Monster_userand we still continue to argue over, literally, NOTHING. :lol:
Hey, if ya gotta argue... :D And FWIW, Mr Scott's Guide To The Enterprise states the following: "However, Star Fleet's Board of Engineers like the smaller and more customary design [of Leeding Engines, Ltd.'s transwarp nacelles], and it was decided that the new FTWG-1 would be testin on an Enterprise class starship. "The U.S.S. Ti-Ho was chose to be the host vessel for the new drive design. Ti-Ho was not a Constituion refit, but was built new form the keel up... "...on September 21, 2222, as Ti-Ho retruned from her deep-space trials, the "Whalesong" crisis took place. Admiral James T. Kirk and his command crew...had stolen and destroyed Enterprise...managed to resolve the crisis... "...In further gratitude, Star Fleed elected to return Kirk to the position of Starship Commander, and he was given a new ship; Ti-Ho was re-christened "Enterprise" and her hull registry was changed to NCC-1701-A." So, to continue to argue about nothing... not everyone agrees that 1701-A was a Constitution refit. Although it contradicts with most other sources, the above passage (in a section I think I failed to quote) suggests that 1701-A resembled the Constitution refits because the new nacelles mounted on the old pylons. Presumably, one can argue, that the overall Constitution-refit hull design worked so well that Star Fleet elected to build an entirely new class of starship based on the same hull. Or maybe beancounters at Paramount just wanted to save some money on building a new model ;) Now I need another quote, though not one that's terribly inspired (I do find the speaker to be relatively interesting, for some reason): "Rrrrr..." -Unnamed Gorn, Arena, TOS
