ALL SALES FINAL! NO EXCEPTIONS!
(“Geez, this guy’s worse than a Ferengi…”)
Some of you may know about the Cory Belote-style starship PDFs I’ve presented as a resource on these forums. I hope you found (and continue to find) them useful. Now I want to present the Modiphius forums with another STA resource I’ve been creating and adjusting for the better part of a year: my fanmade write-ups for lesser known starship classes, especially the old FASA starships. After the publication of the Utopia Planitia sourcebook and Star Trek Minutiae recently updating their Starship Size Comparison images, I took it upon myself to make STA write-ups for a few starbase classes as well. I’m proud of these write-ups and wanted to share them, so here they are.
You can find my starship write-ups in PDF form here. There are 30 starship designs as of this writing, mostly FASA write-ups of my own design along with a few assorted others, like the Freedom-class and Leningrad-class that I designed as Earth-Romulan War era starships.
You can find my starbase write-ups in PDF form here. They include the Alexandria-class (a combination combat starbase and repair yard introduced just after the Dominion War), the Helios-class (the class of the Jupiter research station seen in VOY), the Lotus-class (fanmade TMP era large starbase), Watchtower-class (TOS era starbase), and the Sigma-class (the class of SB 375 seen in Season 6 of DS9, a pure combat defense/border post).
I’ll likely add more write-ups in the coming months (and years?) as I get more inspired to draw them up. For now, they’re yours to peruse as you see fit.
Ok, that was weird, the link for Star Trek Minutiae had an extra “https” thingie in it. Derp. Just fixed it.
…Odd that 5 people clicked on that nonfunctioning link and didn’t say anything. Welp, it’s fixed now.
After seeing the Expansive Department Talent in the Utopia Planitia book, I just got inspired to make write-ups for the California and Parliament classes. I should have them ready in a couple of days and I’ll add them to the starships folder for download.
The California write-up is ready for download (and its pre-statted Cory Belote style PDF is also ready for download in the other thread). The Parliament should be ready in a day or two.
I had to slightly adjust the California class’ overview text and its Department Points; I’ll be putting in the new PDF in my GoogleDocs later today.
The Parliament class is getting closer to completion. After seeing Chris Sham’s previous work on the Parliament class at FjordsofAfrica, I remembered to design the orbital platform seen in “Cupid’s Errant Arrow” from Lower Decks as part of the Parliament’s write-up. The stats are done but I still have to finish the Overview and Capabilities of the Parliament. With luck, it’ll be ready for download at the end of the day.
The PDF write-ups of the California and Parliament classes are now ready for re-download and download, respectively, at the OP’s starship PDF download link. The Parliament write-up includes a supplement detailing the orbital platforms seen in “Cupid’s Errant Arrow” episode of Lower Decks. Their counterparts in my Cory Belote-style starship PDF folder have been updated as well. Enjoy!
