From a thread... a long long .... long time ago, back when the poor still used dial-up for internet. There is this little nugget about the Plunkett that I didn't know before. So there was development history for the Plunkett class! I knew about the design document, but never this story. It looks like there is more information to this story as well. Would be great to include on the WC wiki; at least in the trivia section or as part of a non-canon section. Also a spent a little time fixing up the Plunkett entry on the wiki. Suggestions are welcome. http://www.wcnews.com/wcpedia/Plunkett-Class_Cruiser Edit: So, the ellipses made me think there was a portion removed. There wasn't. This is whole story. Still a nice bit of history.
