Why does the Eagle look Like an older Variation of the Constitution-Class Starship (You know, it looks like a Pre-Pike Era Ship) The Nacelle Caps are almost the same as the ones on The USS Enterprise (NX-01).
well my cgi artist had only this model and I went with- Michael Stutelberg
Same ship as NCC-1719? Edit
Isn't this the same ship as USS Eagle (NCC-1719)? The article states "The Star Fleet Technical Manual gives Eagle's registry as NCC-1719, while the display in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country has it as NCC-956.", so it seams to me that (assuming the article's right) this is the same ship but with a cannon discontinuity as to what the registry is.
The article also says "Orion Press posited that the ship was not Constitution-class but Leonidas-class" and I think if we can condenser the Leonidas-class Eagle to the same ship as this one despite being of a completely different class, we can "ignore" something as inconsequential as a registry.Emmette Hernandez Coleman (talk) 06:58, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
- I think I may agree. Anyone disagree? --Hawku (talk) 14:18, August 12, 2014 (UTC)
- NCC-956 is the canon registry, according to Memory Alpha. It mentions NCC-1719 and NCC-1685 as Background Information, which, to me, deemphasizes the importance. I would keep them as two separate articles as we don’t know for certain if they are meant to be the same ship. Just keep the disclaimer (“For the xxx ship named Eagle you may be looking for, see yyy”) in the top of both articles. That’s my 2 cents’ worth, albeit 3 1/2 years late. —usscantabrian (talk) 10:23, March 28, 2018 (UTC)
I removed a mention about a Katy Garretson as commanding officer. Not sure what fan material it belonged to?
- In 2293, Eagle was conducting a colony re-supply mission in Sector 22858, under the command of Katy Garretson.. Had an assault code-named Operation Retrieve taken place to rescue USS Enterprise-A's Captain James Kirk and Doctor Leonard McCoy from Rura Penthe, Eagle would have been part of the task force.
