Hey guys been reading the Tamerlane for a few years now and finally decided to join :D

i have been messing around with a setting and story idea for a wile and would like some opinions i was going to set it on a destroyer brought out of mouth balls near end of season 2 just before the Ultimate computer (i am using that for a plot point ship is not involved but what happens is) by the corps of engineers for warp field testing


my thought is starfleet like any organization would not want to just dump ships and try to make them viable for as long as possible and with it being close to the movie era a new set of refits are due. the Corps of engineers decide to Use a saladin-class for nacelle testing by adding in a second nacelle


the ship will be the USS Loki NCC-529 brought out of mouth balls

I think you might get better feedback if you cleared up what you said because I can't understand what you are saying. I was able to understand most of what you said but clearly you need to slow down and focus your thoughts and rewrite what you said before in a clear and concise form with proper punctuations and spelling.

Now as for the ship, are you thinking something along the line of the Akula class? http://images.wikia.com/startrek/images ... _Akula.jpg

nope but now that you mention it i do remember seeing that in starfleet command and is probably what gave me the idea. so i guess this would be a TOS version of that ship or at least starfleet's initial testing

i will try and clear up the first post that is an issue i have being clear and concise

written never done webcomic before i might mess with it and if i can get comfortable with ti might switch


so far today i started creating a crew based on my gaming groups old FASA/Decipher characters we used the USS Republic Constitution-class in the FASA/Decipher game we tend to run in about pike era pre-kirk

i used some ideas from starship saladin and tamerlane mainly the tac officer as the XO and the MACOs

edit added more to the crew

thank you :D


also thank you for a lot of the ideas i will be using

added a few more personnel to the crew and starting to get an idea of time period i want to set it and general notes. also started a horrible photoshop of a Saladin-class with a top Nacelle


found some neat deck by deck plans for a saladin that i will be using to reference locations on the ship. i am sure you guys have seen these before but if for some reason you have not here they are. only major change is the organic fabricators on deck 9 will be change to shuttle storage this will make the shuttle bays 2 decks instead of one and the arboretum on deck 10 will be change to the organic fabricators. other little changes will be most of the sci labs will be turned into armories except 2 and they will be basic science labs like a forensic lab. the med bay equipment will be used more often for any science-y things

interesting thing to note the cross section shows the "doppelganger" warp unit but the deck by decks show a physics lab there. sense i will not be using the physics lab not an issue. i do wounder who made these as they are really nice and would like to credit them

cross section

Image

decks 1-5 (command decks, science labs/armories, officer quaters)

Image

deck 6 (main living area)

Image

deck 7 (med bay and rec deck)

Image

decks 8-14 (shuttle bay and fabricators)

Image


going to take a break on people and start coming up with the back ground of the ship before it was brought back into service.

here are a few things about the ship

USS Loki
NCC-529 as constructed in 2246
NX-529 wile under going warp field testing in early 2267 changed back to NCC-529 after the testing was complete

circa 2255 and mid 2267 after the nacelle placement testing
Image


keel lade in 2244 commissioned in 2246 taken out of service in 2256 do to damage sustained at the end of the 4 year war from 2252-2256. starfleet preferring the newer Constitution-class over the destroyers puts it in the reserve fleet

because of this the interior and bridge are still like that of pikes Enterprise with the goose neck monitors no colored trim or railing except on the doors they are the same color as the alternate green captain tunics the mint green color

when the Loki was built it was to be as a troop deployment command center because of this it's shuttle bay is slightly larger taking up decks 8 and 9 so the larger troop transport shuttles could fit on board for boarding parties and ground deployments. because of this the Loki does not have a arboretum as that space was used to house the fabricators and work shop instead

the ship also still has the 2 side docking ports like the Tamerlane as the ship was never refitted only change that was done like the Tamerlane was the chemically propelled doors where disabled for safety reasons

wile getting the second nacelle installed most of the internal and weapon systems where brought up to current spec to help with compatibility. the ship also has a constitution-class warp core installed vertically instead of horizontally (like in a constitution) to help fuel the second engine.

even with the top nacelle the ship still has the "doppelganger" warp drive pole it is just not used

like some early Saladins the Loki does have science labs even though no where near as sophistacated as those on larger ships. for most heavy scientific analysis the medical labs have to be used or wait until a starbase can be reached

bridge
