In September 2385, Captain Riker was promoted to rear admiral. After being promoted, Rear Admiral Riker retained Titan as his personal flagship. Upon his assignment as Sector Commander of the Alpha Quadrant frontier zone, he made Titan the sector command's mobile base of operations.
In 2386, Christine Vale was promoted to captain and assigned as the ship's permanent commanding officer, after having served as acting captain since Riker's promotion.
This is beautiful. In my sixth Star Trek: Fortitude book called Afterburn, I had a Luna-class ship named the USS Blackmore, named after Rear Admiral Edward 'Boxer' Blackmore. I suppose I subconsciously did a mix of Star Trek and Star Wars by casting the character in my mind with Mark Hamill. Anyways, this is really great work and a great beauty.
The Luna class is a thing of beauty. I was so afraid that they'd change the design in Lower Decks to be something else and it absolutely made my day when I saw that hadn't. Actually it probably made my week, I was giddy for a long time after seeing it swoop in and save the Cerritos.
I loved the design so much that it was the first Eaglemoss miniature I ever bought, and I'm not really a person that does 'merch' like that. I've always just been content with just saving pictures to my HD and looking at them there. But with the Titan, I had to have something physical.
