On her shakedown voyage the Clarke sets a new speed record for her tonnage class, reaching the galactic rim in record-setting time. Once there she pulled into the supply and repair depot at Stoffels III for a complete astronautics and engineering systems analysis, as well as a thorough hull inspection. In Captain Peters’ mission debrief, she reported even fewer problems than the engineers had expected after her sister ship’s troubling shakedown.

However their sensors reported a curious subspace anomaly at extreme range, 36 parsecs back. The data signature has aspects of what Federation science has come to recognize as a Preserver subspace blind. Once all systems have been checked out, the Clarke will return to the location, try to reacquire the signal, and pursuer further investigation.

All an excuse to a) keep using this cool Century class model, and b) throw it together with the Nemesis dry dock (awful movie, neat tech!). Plus 8 Distant lights and 17 spotlights - YEE-HAW!!!!

The drydock thing never gets old.

Agreed! It's always a potent slice of technoporn ;)

Thanks. I wish I'd made it a LITTLE more populated, but I guess it still makes a nice impact.

Yes, that's getting pretty nostalgic--in a futuristic sort of way... :)

Nice work, she looks very impressive in the dock. . . . .

Yeah, it's interesting how the anglular dock somehow DOESN'T interfere with her graceful lines.

But then, as LM Ant points out above, maybe that's just a product of my being a bondage aficionado? ;p

Star Trek ships are between the most beautiful ones in the sci-fi history, in my opinion....
