Norway class. "Fear the Wish Bone, Baby!" :D Norways look very sexy and fast. They have an Import Tuner look to them. And they turn and accelerate on a dime.
"Live fast. Die well. And may your last command from the Big Chair be...wait for it...
Helm, Ramming Speed. Engage!"

Norway Class, they look more dangerous. Must have something to do with there slightly pointed front while Steamrunners look like a square donut.

steamrunners just dont work for me, they just dont seem to be like anyother starfleet vessel

neither ship does it for me. Both designs look like they were rushed to fill space in FC. They don't have the .......thoughtful design progress that the other ships have.

I personally like the Steamrunner, I find its design to be sleak and besides a Steamrunner can kick ass a lot more than a Norway

A tough call, but I went with a Steamrunner Class due to its long range strike capability via Tricobalt ordinace and the fact that it has considerably more armor than the Norway. :cool:

I always thought the Norway looked like its nacelles were in danger of falling off so I picked the Steamrunner.

Really? How does that work out? Steamrunners are considered Frigates, Norways are considered Cruisers.
|#9 - Posted by: Firewarrior1705 (Member) on 02-23-2009 at 11:50|
well if you check DITL or ExAstris, the norway is more a research ship than a combat ship. The steamrunner on the other hand was designed as a support cruiser for the Federation's larger capital ships. Also durring the Dominion War they were reffited with type10 phasers and pulse torpedo launchers(like the ones on the akira) and so I'd say the steamrunner can kick more ass than the norway ;)

I personally don't like either ship. I would hold out for a luna or excelseor (I know it's misspelled) class ship.

give me a romulan cruiser anyday
|#12 - Posted by: Husnock (Member) on 02-23-2009 at 17:50|
Steamrunners are better armed (going by Ex Astris Scientia) and just look hardier, so I had to go with the Delmarva.

According to canon sources (Okuda grams and such), the Steamrunner and Norway are both the same size (if I'm correct 328metres-at any rate, I know it's between 300-400 metres) and like the Sabre (identical size) are classifies as 'medium cruisers' which are armed more like a light cruiser but can fill the secoondary and peacetime roles of a heavy cruiser.
But for me-I'd go for the Excelsior class USS Valley Forge (NCC-43305) anyday of the week.

DITL or ExAstris are unreliable, go with Memory Alpha. It is much better. Both ships have Phasers and nothing else.

Me, well I prefer a big juicy Omega Destroyer. To sit there on that artificial gravity bridge and feel the engines roar beneath you, as you head towards certain death against pretty much any class of ship :P has to be quite exhilarating.
|#16 - @14 - Posted by: Husnock (Member) on 02-24-2009 at 15:00|
The site doesn't really specify anything other than that both ships are armed with SOME sort of phasers. They also list apocryphal stats (probably for this reason), which ironically state that the Norway is in fact the better-armed of the two, with 2 additional Type-10 phaser strips over the Steamrunner.
|#17 - @#16 - Posted by: adm_tyler (Member) on 02-24-2009 at 18:30|
It soesn't specify because it only accepts canon information. There are a few specific non-canon sources (like tech manuals) allowed that are put in a 'Background' section instead of the main text. That makes it one of the most reliable sites because it doesn't make up stuff that was never shown.
|#18 - @17 - Posted by: Husnock (Member) on 02-25-2009 at 10:30|
I didn't say it wasn't a reliable site by any means. I was pointing out that they aren't armed with only the same amount of phasers and nothing else.

Personally, the steamrunner has always been one of my favorite ships. idk exactly why, i just think it looks nice, sleek, and powerful, something that can pack a punch and move fast to boot.
|#20 - Posted by: Raygen (Member) on 02-26-2009 at 03:00|
Norway is fast and agile with phasers as its main weaponry. Steamrunner is slow and sturdy with long range cobalt torpedoes. It's very simple. If I get the chance to equip my Norway with quantum torpedoes, I will take the USS Berlin. If not, it's the USS Delmarva.

Honestly, I'd go with the Courageous class ship, I know, not cannon, but there's not really much question why
