At last, a Federation ship worthy of some John Wayne type captain shouting, "Fill your hand, you sonofabitch!"
That's the Hestia class, from Star Trek Online. Gorgeous ship.
Love the Prometheus!
Looks great but I was never sold on the concept. Why would three small ships be better than one large ship with the same firepower? And if the ship could handle Romulan vessels with only the computer controlling it, why was it manned to begin with? Imagine the increase in firepower if they didn't have to devote power and space to living quarters, and life support.
Beats the ship from the Alien-franchise movie of the same name.
A beautiful little ship!
Hehe, I agree - I really love Thomas' model/design of the Hestia class - but it's not so little... the predecessor (the Prometheus class) was already 415m and this one is even a bit longer.
Still the Galaxy class, and many others were bigger. Which puts it on the smaller side, by comparison.
But is it a tough little ship?😉😋
If I'm not mistaken, I think it's that ship (I can't remember the name of) that splits into three. If it is, that it is a tough little ship.... Not as tough as the Defiant though.
You think of the Prometheus class from the VOY episode "Message in a Bottle". The ship in the pic is the successor of that class which is called Hestia class. And - like the Prometheus - it is bigger & tougher than a Defiant class.
I'M A DOCTOR NOT A COUNTER INSURGENT!
Looks appropriately badass for a Prometheus class inspired looking ship.
