I assume that Starfleet considered this class as a total failure and cancelled the construction of further ships. I don't know why they would come up with such a monstrosity to begin with. I guess the engineers who designed it were all under the influence of the PSI2000 virus.
So Pizza the Hutt says in this ship's outline-- and he's right. This is one truly ugly looking, truly silly looking vessel. The Rigel class is, by anyone's calculation, a joke taken too far. Ex Astris Scientia describes it as follows:
"A Galaxy-class saucer, attached directly to a Constitution engineering section (no connecting dorsal). Three Galaxy-style warp nacelles; the first two are about where you'd expect, the third is attached directly below the shuttlecraft bay."
Like most three-nacelled ships, this one's strictly for the "wtf?" factor. Pizza the Hutt also included some political commentary. Just ignore it and mod over it if you don't like it.
Worth a look. Just not a long look or you might go blind.
