Took the time and wrote a bit of background Stargazzer811  Colourbrand bigwhitehound Majestic-MSFC 
  • Phase II of the Declaration project. As the technology barriers of the Sheppard class were being overcome StarFleet saw value in commissioning a large number of auxiliaries, landing, logistics, and support ships built around a common space-frame, power plant, and warp drive. The advantages of having a ship with a common design would allow for ease of use in terms of spare parts fabrications, crew familiarity, and ship handling characteristics. 
  • The light cruiser warp drive and power plant was selected but scaled back for economy purposes. These ships could make Warp 6 when launched ten years after the Shepard class in 2210 which is incredibly fast for a support ship and were uprated to warp factor 7 by the 50's.
  • This ship was roughly 7/8 the size of the Nimitz class and had a core crew of 200 but significant excess life support capacity for its various mission profiles.
  • Over 100 ships were built, roughly 90-100 units in service as of 2250 across several major and minor variants.
    • 10 Planetfall Assault Ships -for the MACO Battalions
    • 10 shuttle carrier or multipurpose auxiliaries.
    • 10 Fleet multi-store supply ships
    • 10 Fleet Tenders
    • 20 Fleet Tankers -that can be fitted for anti-matter and deuterium deep space tanking
    • 10 Fleet Tugs, Search and Rescue ships, or Salvage ships depending on the mission package. 4/3/3 typical composition.
    • 2 Fleet or Sector command ships
    • 2 Hospital ships -StarFleet Medical Command also includes 2 modified Daedalus class ships AKA Nightingale class
    • 2 EW/ELINT ISR monitoring ships -Mobile Large-scale Early Warning and Signals monitoring ships. These work in conjunction with the Long March class 
    • 2 Mine-Layer/Mine-counter Measure ships
    • 10-12 other unspecified special mission ships

 I though the T'Plana-Hath was an Engle class.

 That said, maybe they should have you on the design team for Discovery. You manage to prevent them from looking too fucking slab-sided.

Keep it up guys! Can't wait to see if you do a TOS version of the Disco herself (pssst, Manos, make sure you fill in the negative saucer space plz)

*looks at Tricorder, does best Spock imitation* Captain, I am detecting a vast quantity of what you would call, sarcasm, in that direction.

When I asked HandofManos to do this ship and the Nimitz the idea was drawn from these ships were the descendants of Earth-Romulan War-era designs which were an emergency war program construction which emphasized utility and quick construction over specialization or optimization of warp design. Additionally, limitations to starships manufacturing and fabrication led to the clunkiness of the design. The trend continued for nearly a century until the Constitutions were introduced in the 2240's 

The ship's namesake is an early Mexican intellectual José Vasconcelos who coined the concept of the cosmic race in the Americas (This is a homage to the TNG practice of naming ships after central American revolutionaries en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jos%C3%A…)

Its scaled roughly 3/4 to 7/8 the length of the USS Nimitz with Hands previously did NimitzTOSStyleS 


The class is extremely versatile built around a light cruiser power plant and warp drive it can keep pace with the heavy cruiser battle group, top speed roughly warp 7. Probably around ~240m or ~790feet in length with a core crew of ~200

The design flexibility allows it modified extensively some roles include; medium-speed auxiliary cruiser, or a high-speed fleet supply ship or tender, Deuterium or antimatter tanker, salvage/Search and rescue ship, fleet tug, Minelayer/countermeasure ship, shuttle carrier, cargo tug/ carrier (if the under mounted hull is removed for the Starfleet Transport command, Franz Joesph's design nicely done  Ptolemy class ortho [updated] ) a MACO planetfall assault carrier, a hospital ship, EW/ELINT ship, or fleet/sector command ship. It is basically the Miranda class of the early 23rd century. I figure at least 110~ were built across 7-8 different variants some like the tankers 20+ were built others like the hospital ship or sector command ship only 2 pairs were built. But having a ship with a common design would allow for ease of use in terms of spare parts fabrications, crew familiarity, and ship handling characteristics. Conversely, only 10-11 Nimitz class Heavy Cruisers were built which were later reclassed as Auxillary cruisers with the commisioning of the USS Constitution and USS Enterprise.

Philbob84 Thanks for the explanation very insightful and has given me a new admiration for the design (STD version included).

I'm glad you liked it! I always try to apply this to ship design.. even in Syfy 😂 please take a look at handofmanos auxiliary cruiser also.

Yes I saw it as well. A huge fan of both designs. I might try and model my own TMP inspired designs from both of them. :)

philbob84 Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2018
Both designs are really well done and can be pulled forward easily into the 25th century. I would of sworn most of the ships from STD are TMP era if I was coming into this out of a coma lol.

it is a star trek Discovery design redesigned for TOS usage. Since it is a supply ship it is not well armed but beyond that I am not very familiar with the design specifics as in internal specs ;)
