Hey buddy, do you really want to start a discussion of what areas of our nations we're from? :P

I'm from Teesside which is actually such a bleak dystopia that it was the inspiration for Ridley Scott's Bladerunner. Imagine Necromunda...that is here. Most of the population are Ugnaughts.

At least they're your own Ugnaughts, rather than the Niebelungs that form the cast of "Jersey Shore."

Equally as bad, we have Geordie Shore now...

And people wonder why we don't want to leave where we live to join the city life.

It's the opposite - we've got these space-wasters coming from the city and making people think that they're representatives of what things are like down the shore.

I want Mikey in Geordie Shore with a T-shirt saying ''Mudd's women are the only women I want''.

We've gained some city folks now where my father lives. The families have been in the process of teaching them about the area ways. Though it was to late for their house which they built broadside to the mountain.

I just got an audial image of Rick Springfield singing, "I wish that I had Harvey's girls..."

Anyhoo, I think I want a Constellation-class.

A Constellation class??? I didn't even know they were around back then.

Memory Alpha has the Constellation-class USS Hathaway in service as of 2285, per TNG: "Peak Performance;" it is shown with a distinctly different bridge layout than the later USS Stargazer has. The actual USS Constellation is mentioned in TUC.

True enough, so a long range explorer. Not the best in a fight but she can sure run like hell.

Looking at the design components and the canon statements - assuming, of course, it's the earlier version - it looks like she'd be just barely shy of a refit Miranda-class in overall strength: similar weapon power but slightly less range and somewhat weaker shields; but more maneuverable, faster, and probably a bit more physically durable thanks to redundancies and a generally heavier build. I'd say something like a light cruiser to the Miranda's D-E, the Excelsior's heavy, and the Polaris' frigate. As far as speed, one of the TNG eps had her max warp at 9.0.

Likely by the standard I'd place the Ex as the battleship of the UFP for the time since the Connie was the battle/heavy cruiser according to STIII.

Still, you've got a nimble little thing with plenty of room for phasers but is she packing any PTLs?

4 PTL's judging by the models.
