Star Trek Ships

I thought I would finally do some FT SSDs of the more typical Trek ships. First, a few words about the FT conversion.

I have a NSL fleet from GZG. I use this as my reference fleet for determining mass for ships from other ranges. Basically, I compare the size of the different models and pick a rough mass range.

For the Trek ships, I have used the models from ADB. I use the fleet scale ship diagrams to determine the weapon fit for the ships, adjusting size and arcs within the mass limit.

I use FT beams for Trek phasers and pulse torps for photon torps. Note, all my ships also have a couple of shuttles. These come free with the ship, like crew. They are not troop transports etc as described in he FT rules. They represent life pods, small interface craft, or a limited bording capability.

Here is the Federation Constitution Class Heavy Cruiser aka Enterprise.

The box with the "L" inside it represents the science lab facilities. Believe it or not, I do not have a painted, assembled cruiser.

I do, however, have a couple of related ships.

The "Strike Cruiser" is a minor variation made more for war than exploration.

The "new fast Cruiser" is another ship built for war. Specifically deep raiding.

Some smaller Federation ships.

For now, my enemy fleet only consists of Klingon F5 frigates.

Seltorian Ships

Some more FT SSDs. This time for the arch-enemies of the Tholians: the Setorians. Note, as for many of the Trek ships, the class (FF, DN etc) is based on the Trek description, not the FT mass rating. I have opted to use the Kravak K-gun to represent the Seltorian particle cannon.

Revised Tholian Corvette

I have made a minor revision to the Tholian Corvette to keep its mass an even number in line with the current convention. Its total mass has dropped by one and I have removed one armour box.
