What's a Class I Starship? Class I Starships are the designs included in the TOS Technical Manual.

Class I Heavy Cruiser / Constitution Class Starships

Class I Destroyer / Saladin Class Starships

Class I Scout / Hermes Class Starships

Class I Transport/Tug / Ptolemy Class Starships

Class I Dreadnought / Federation Class Starships


What they all have common features, the most common being the warp propulsion units. I'm going to start building these in Lightwave along with some interiors and auxiliary craft. It should be fun. So, pay attention to this thread.

I'm working on the one component that's the same across all Class I Starships. The Nacelle.

I think I'm done modeling the nacelle. I might do some fancy inner workings for the Bussard Collector and back sphere thing.

Nice. Sounds like you're building a lot of the vesels from the old Starfleet Battles tabletop game.

I don't know about that game. I'll have to look it up. This list is from the Star Trek Star Fleet Technical Manual.

I think the ships from the manual came from the game. I'll have to find my books.

Please do. I'd like to see scans of any images if you can manage it, or at least tell me the book titles and ship names so I can look them up.

That's the technical manual I have. My copy is falling apart though. Looks like shit.
