Yep. Yet another ship based on a Jefferies sketch. When I was looking at the sketch, I thought it had a more Kelvin look to it than TOS, so I am taking visual cues and detailing from the Kelvin and Franklin in a sort of alternate Trek timeline, just for creative license.



The saucer is 600 feet across, but relatively flat. Probably going to be sliding side doors on the secondary for the shuttle bay.




That's about the gist of it. Piddling around with details as I go.

But wait, there's more.

Star Trek: Repulse teaser script.

My first idea of this being an alternate Trek design was that the hull number wouldn't have NCC prefix, and the name would have either S.S. or nothing as a prefix, and as I keep looking at it the ship, I thought about pirates. But how would pirates get such a ship? Like Khan got the Reliant? Well, that has been done. What about a crew going renegade? Not too bad, but why would that happen? Then it dawned on me. You know how in old Trek there was usually some anomaly or event that happened and the crew had to figure out what it was and how to fix it, and the show reset at the end? What if they did not know something had happened to them, and they slowly changed? No reset at the end of the episode. I wondered that if this was a show, how would I do it?

Keep it short. Three seasons. Maybe do 6 episodes a season. 2 episodes for a 3 act format. Season one: After a skirmish with Orions, an undetected malady effects the crew as they pursue and defeat the major antagonist. Season two: They are full on pirates, now trying to avoid Starfleet and the Orion Syndicate, while beginning to suspect their motivations. Season three: tensions on the Repulse flare as the captain tries to avoid capture of his vessel and captain's chair, while trying to uncover how this malady started and what will cure them.

    Nice nod to some of the preliminary sketches for TOS.
    Looks like something the shipyards could've quickly pumped out for the Romulan War and that would've ended up in surplus depots or shipbreaking yards or even be demilitarized and sold to private operators.

    The "impulse deflection crystal" looking part was inspired by DeLorean hubcaps. Hard to see the thin radials from these angles.
