Some of the unsung heros of the TNG Era, the New Orleans class frigate and the Cheyenne class light cruiser.
On-Screen these ships were only seen once in Star Trek The Next Generation as wreckages in the Wolf 359 graveyard scene in "The Best of Both Worlds".
Both physical studio models were mostly kitbashes from model parts of the Galaxy class in different scales and marker pens which were used for the four Cheyenne warp nacelles and the outboard pods of the New Orleans.

Beautiful ships that never got screen time.

Failure to follow what I call "front-loading". As in loading-up the front-end of the story, which actually helps the back-end payoff, but isn't done nearly enough these days. Do not just have random ship "Oh noes the USS Cannon Fodder is dead!!!" Introduce them in season 1. See them again in season 2. Meet their captains. Have a friend on the crew. Make them matter. Make the audience give a damn when they are obliterated.

The federation starships Daidalos (New Orleans Class) and Somalia (Cheyenne Class) going to the Wolfianian-Federation border (Anthropomorphic Wolf race i just made up)!

Hello:
 These are the ships they shoud have used in TNG and DS9 instead of keep re-using the Mirandas and Excelsior classes :( .

 Otherwise, very nice pic with such unused designs!

Yes, i wish we had seen more of these TNG designs. At some point it was a bit weird, seeing Oberth classes fight a Borg Cube, or old Miranda classes act as Red Shirt Ships in the Dominion War.

Hello:
 Indeed! They had ship designs, it was baffling that they never used them :( .

A shame they were never seen fighting in the Dominion war, a lost opportunity.
