That way rather than maybe going to a special Non-Canon section and finding it there one could simply click Fed Ships --> Vesta Classbwith the Vesta Class button being a different color (or colour).
IanKennedy wrote:Nothing is impossible, however, I wonder what would decide the colour of the button. For example we already have ship classes where the class name is not cannon. This includes the obvious ones from the FJ TM, but also ones where the class name isn't known, like the Centaur class for example. We know that this class exists but we don't know that this is the class ship. Should the button be coloured based upon the class name "canonistity" or on something else?

Neither are canon but both are officially supported - both are ships that have starred in one or more official Trek novels, thus both are ships that we know or can extrapolate a reasonable amount about and get a reasonable entry on.
Including the events from those novels would also allow us to incorporate more character detail - the events of the novels, such as Picard marrying Beverly, Dax becoming a Captain, some of Riker's adventures on the Titan, etc. Naturally the canon colour coding system would let us show all this up as the non canon material that it is.
There is some precedent for this, as we include entries for Franz Joseph's non canon ships from the Starfleet tech manual already.
What say you? Good idea, or not? And any other candidates for ships to include?
