A small federation Task Force protect a Curry class Carrier during the Dominion War.

The Curry Class was developed in early 2310 using designs from the Excelsior and Miranda class vessels to create a carrier starship for mass transit. The Curry class was designed to carry multiple fighter wings and its personnel for operations past the support abilities of a starbase.

The Curry class appears in some later DS9 Episodes and was one ship of the Frankenstein Fleet like the Yeager, or Medusa classes.
Named after Dan Curry, a visual effects producer and supervisor in Star Trek TNG and DS9.

The studio model USS Curry (NCC-42254) was built by, and named after Visual Effects Supervisor Dan Curry. The kitbash model was constructed from the saucer section and engineering hull from the AMT/Ertl USS Excelsior model kit, and the warp nacelles and pylons from the USS Reliant model kit. Curry noted on his build, "We had to do a fleet of damaged ships. We got together (Gary Hutzel, and other people from Image G) and we kitbashed Star Trek models in ways that they were never meant to be put together. Just for fun each person who built a ship named it after him or her self. The USS Curry is not supposed to be a specific class, just a model I threw together."

The Curry class is not to be confused with the Raging Queen type. The Raging Queen had a similar component build, but the saucer section lays a bit more on the front of the ship and the warp nacelles are flipped to the side.

The "Curry" class is without a doubt the single ugliest Federation-built class of ships EVER!

Hehe, i know what you mean. But there are much uglier canon ships out there. Just look at the Medusa, Yeager or Elkins classes. I mean, mixing components from ship from the same era is weird, but i must say they grow on me. But mixing a TOS Constitution with an Intrepid (Elkins) or an Maquis Fighter with an Intrepid (Yeager) is more as just weird.

I have a dislike of the "Norway" class. It seems 'off' somehow.
