THE BATTLESHIP

39 Comments
1K Views
The classic Constitution class is one of the most, recognisable starships ever known. From the early days of Star trek to the modern film. In fact, recently a phase ii version resurfaced showing a missing link between the t.v show version and the movie version. 
Which is fine, but leaves me wondering with this thought. In the Star trek movies all the starships which featured have a armoured look to them. Hinting the fact, some sort of conflict or war had to happen. In order to get certain starships upgraded especially the Constitutions fleet.

Which leads me to this picture, the "USS LEXINGTON PHASE II BATTLESHIP" A phase ii Constitution class starship. This starship and her class has being changed, from science to military. It's shuttle craft replaced with fighter jets (F 36s) used for space and ground attacks. The shuttle bay itself, extended to the same length and style as featured in later Constitution refit (featured in the motion picture)
The starship itself, has upgraded weapons, harden plates and a more powerful advance shields. 

The comic will be showing this conflict, and hopefully explaining how the refit Constitution came to be!

Wait, wound't the enterprise crash towards earth? It doesn't have wings and it was establish in the show its dangerous to go in a planet's atmosphere. Oh well, its still good pic. :)

well that is a good question, maybe one day they have some anti-gravity unit?

Maybe like the JJ enterprise?

You're correct about the danger of entering a planet's atmosphere.  However, in the episode "Tomorrow is Yesterday", the Enterprise was in the Earth's atmosphere early in the show.  That's why the F-104 was able to approach it.  Yet, the show, "Star Trek:  Voyager" has the Voyager being capable of entering a planet's atmosphere even to the point of being able to actually land and it did so on a regular basis.

Huh, thought JJ wanted the enterprise act like star wars ship, but I guess TOS and Voyager did started it.

Well, in the episode I'm referring to, the Enterprise can be seen with a high angle of attack trying to return to space.  I believe that, despite her anti-matter engines, the pull of the Earth's gravity was almost too strong for her to break free, due to the danger of engaging warp drive while in a planet's gravity well.  That's the purpose of the impulse engines.  They are, as I believe, more of a reaction engine similar to rockets only significantly stronger.

I remember in the first Star Trek move, Captain Kirk said, in the captain's log, that they were going to risk engaging warp drive while still in the solar system so they could engage "the intruder" further from Earth.  Yet, I lost count of the number of times the different Star Trek ships engaged warp drive upon leaving a planet.  So, I'm still wondering what the facts are concerning warp drive.
