Norway Class Starship INCOMPLETE

Post by aurora-7 » Tue May 27, 2014 4:33 pm

Spent way more time on deciding a name than probably it'll take to build the kit.

Aurora, you recently contacted me about your account. I've tried e-mailing you via AST, but it bounced back. I've used another e-mail on Thursday to see if that would go through. As yet, I've had no additional bounced e-mails. If you're still having problems, please get back in touch with me.

General parts and a couple of notes. Originally posted these at Starship Modeler to kick off a blog but decided to hold back on the build until this contest got under way.

Overall:

Deflector?

I know I should know this but what is the Norway from? Was it the Equinox ship? Out is it a First Contact ship?

A First Contact ship. Probably the least seen/known canon ship in Trek.

I shall call her 'USS Sojourn'.

Thanks for the 'official' sourcing, moongrim.

The story I heard is that the design was never seen in DS9 or Voyager is that the data file of the CG model was corrupted/lost after 'First Contact' and was never redone so nothing of it was available to be used in subsequent Trek television production, although some improvised designs made it their way to light. The seem to favor some sort of navigational deflector mounted in the spade-shaped saucer.

Notice this kit version has no phaser 'stripe' or obvious photon torpedo ports but has some sort of phaser canon, judging by the movie still image from moongrim's site reference.
