Steamrunner Class Heavy Frigate

on Tue Oct 07, 2014 1:48 pm
~ Start Entry ~

Authorized by the Perimeter Defense Directive in the 2360s, the Steamrunner-class vessels were designed for patrolling the Federation borders, responding to border incursions, and for intelligence gathering.

Ships of this class saw action at the Battle of Sector 001 in 2373, where several were lost. Several other Steamrunner-class starships were involved in the Dominion War, and participated in Operation Return in 2374 and the second Battle of Chin'toka in 2375. Several ships of the class were stationed near Deep Space 9 during the war.

(There's not much information on the Steamrunner, and I'm a bit pressed for time so the information posted is from both the Memory Alpha and Memory Beta articles on the Steamrunner)

- Specifications -

Length: 375 Meters
Beam: 270.9 Meters
Height: 79.5 Meters


All other specs are kept in constant with standard retrofit procedures.

It looks great! Very Happy The underside seems a little plain to me but it's still great there and a great everywhere else!  The Steamrunner is a cool ship, it's a lot more unorthodox than the Akira, but they both have that Federation-y feel to them.

Wow.... getting all those angles to line up must've been hard. That alone is commendable, never mind you made the rest of the ship look really good too! Razz The steamrunner is one of my favorites from a design perspective (even if it makes no sense Razz) and you caught it beautifully here. Great job!

Good work, J-red! I'm not very familiar with the Steamrunner Class, but as a ship, this thing is great! I'm excited about your releasing of so many of your classic ships in Perfect Grade. You've done an excellent job!

Pure awesomeness. Just pure awesomeness. I'd look up Steamrunner pics and find SOMETHING inaccurate about it, but nothing wrong with it. So I don't feel like messing with the awesomeness. NICE work J-red! I love the Steamrunner...

Epic ship! I'm not really into classic ST, but this is awesome. Very Happy The building techniques you utilized in this model are really cool. Great job!

@ Talmid - Thanks! Though, you must admit, when you look up the Steamrunner, you'll notice, the underside is already pretty plain to begin with. Razz

@ Scare - Glad you like it! I've got more to come as well!

@ Dino - High praise coming from the man that knows everything about canon starships. Razz I will say, I'm pretty sure the deflector section is smaller than it should be, but it really couldn't be helped honestly, I don't know how I could've made it bigger but kept everything else in scale.

@ PXR - Danke! I wouldn't consider this "classic" ST. Razz This is from the Next Gen era. If I recall, they're most noticeable in Star Trek: First Contact and in the "Fall of Angels" episode in Deep Space 9. It's a shame they weren't more prominent, I wish that fleet action was used more in the ST series, because seeing massive fleets engaged in conflict is so much cooler than seeing ships go one on one. Even though that can be pretty cool too. (See Battle in the Mutura Nebula) Razz
