Your logic works both ways. What's to say that the Concordia and Bengal calsses didn't take desings aspect from this class?Quarto said:This carrier is supposed to be older than either the Concordia or the Bengal classes, right? And yet, what you've done is taken these two classes and fused them together into one design. Unless there's something I'm missing here, this makes no sense at all.
Well, sure, but then again, anything works if we use a little imagination . My problem with this goes a little deeper than just the question of which design inspired which - see below in my reply to Brad.Marc said:Your logic works both ways.

The thing is, I recall disliking most of the Pioneer ship designs for these exact same reasons (although IIRC, I didn't publically complain about them, because you guys had made it clear that you wouldn't making any fundamental changes to any of them): they all looked so great, but... they were all just so darned in-bred (i.e., they were all mixtures of WC1 ships, even when it made no sense at all).BradMick said:Ah, I gotcha now Qaurto. I dunno, I don't really remember why to be honest, I just know I told mark what I had in mind, he took the 'Old Carrier Class' as the inspiration, and as it progressed and morphed, became that. I can't really pin down a definate logical reason behind it, just that when the design series was going, thats what it became. I remember saying 'throw bengal wings on it, and see how it turns out', this is what was born.
Actually, according to the Handbook the Bengal has been around since 2619. So it's very possible for a ship which predates WC1 to have the wing dealies. McAuliffe happens in 2634. So, I guess that would be the only explanation I can give.
