"Dockmaster's log, Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards - The four-months long refit of the USS Enterprise is now complete. After their battle over Veridian, we had to re-assemble the wee lassie from scratch. I always said the best way of diplomacy if a fully loaded phaser bank... and the Enterprise's new Type-XII phasers are guaranteed to make a good impression. Not to mention these new quantum torpedoes... if only we'd had them in my time..."

In my series of stories, the Galaxy Class Starship was eventually upgraded with Quantums. Along with most ships. Photon Torpedoes just don't really cut it most of the time, so it's nice to have that option on hand.

It makes sense. In classic pre-ENT fanon, the TOS ships were built with acceleratos canons and lasers, only to be upgraded with photon torpedoes and phasers later on.

Yeah, but in my stories. It's to counter the Borg Invasion that they suspect is coming. (think the Destiny Novels, but later on. It's only implied in-universe, but out of universe, it is coming.)

Mr. Scott is who I assume is talking.

The big D ready to fly once more.

I would really love to see my ship done by you!

How does your ship look like?

My ship is the Century-class USS Endeavour NCC-81923, launched in 2410. 

There are images of her in my gallery done by Jetfreak (with more to come), along with an MSD created on commission by larundel.
Jetfreak will have the model of the Endeavour on file, and unusualsuspex will have the Century-class model as well  (he did an ortho for me).  I can ask Jetfreak to send you the model if you want?

Guess he was not to old to fall in love again after all.

This could technically co-exist with the NCC-1701-E, although maybe not as a museum ship like the NCC-1701-A became.

It's actually in my Polaris universe, where the D survived the Battle of Veridian. The Ent-E as we know it was never built (or, more likely, the ship was built under a different name and hull number).
