Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

During this year’s Comic Con San Diego- a major announcement as part of the 50th year anniversary of “Star Trek” celebration, as part of the same month the release of “Star Trek Beyond” in which gave tribute to the Late Leonard Nimoy also Anton Yelchin…  As part of the tribute to Anton whom plays the reboot version of Pavel Chekov, original played by Walter Koenig in The Original prime Universe… in the fourth reboot film of the following Star Trek film they’ve decided not to recast the late Anton Yelchin role…  So hoping they will cast for a different character Yeoman Janice Rand..  Hoping that they’ll cast Gal Gadot (Diana Prince- Wonder Women) for the role..

As Star Trek- Discovery airs on 2017 … The second trailer in this features Ralph McQuarrie’s version of the Enterprise for Phase two in which features some more crew additions as seen in the Motion Picture, a larger more delta engineering hull with a traditional saucer section version in which the design is Vulcan inspired from the IDIC-Infinite Diversity infinite Combinations symbolism…  “USS Discovery” is featured as a Ariel Class a very much twice as large lengthwise of the Constitution class retro-refit Enterprise..

Star Trek Discovery -USS Discovery – named inspired from NASA- national aeronautics and space administration Space Shuttle Discovery Orbital Vehicle- OV-103

At this stage it’s a unknown of what the crew is, guessing that CBS-Paramount wants to allure us into what’s to come, hoping for a female Captain commanding the USS Discovery.. As I watched more into the trailer it looks like the Ship is constructed as traditional Ralph McQuarrie painted out, the ship is constructed in the manufacturing yard within the protection of asteroid…..  With a few cosmetics alterations in giving an in between era look between the post five year mission to The Motion Picture look with the more of the USS Kelvin hulling design heritage to Discovery..

It should be interesting to see how the thirteen episodes of season one would be scripted, screenplay, written as it’s unlike the previous series in which as storyline flow to it, but with different episodic storylines, like a mini movie with a new crew, different ship type,  that comes with traditional and new species of worlds……….

As you watched “Star Trek beyond” in which hit movie screens this week… when I looked at the USS Franklin it reminded me of more the NX series Starships that was seen on the Enterprise series with Captain Johnathan Archer exploring for the very first time which that exploration led towards the formation birth of the United Federation of Planets..

Looking at the USS Franklin, is like looking at the larger, bulkier harden version of the NX series Starship. The primary saucer hulling is very much tanked up, so as the NX type nacelles. As a challenge, what would a modern Star Trek online USS Franklin look like…?  Looking at the details of the Franklin… Using the various parts and components of heavy carrier escorts..  The closest version of that vessel class would be a heavy escort carrier class… Thinking using a Altai Class saucer section with the Arkia hull with Armitage nacelles in getting the stretch sleek look in which nacelles …

Noticing the Franklin is a small very nibble moving ship with it main form of manoeuvrability is reliant of heavy retro’s thrusters… so the best choice is using a tier six Alita heavy carrier escort class as a main platform with all forwarding cannons torpedoes and after turrets in maximizing go in quick, lock, load, fire and dive out in any battle situations..

As “AIR NEW ZEALAND” keeps awarding excelling in its winning inflight safety video’s, as award winning from the iconic themes of Lord of the rings and hobbit trilogies, with the men in black representing the team “All Blacks”… this year it’s about Comedy and Hollywood.. The #SafetyinHollywood is based on many ionic film genres from police investigations in New York to romantic streets of France to where two couples played by New Zealand Comedian Rhys Darby calls fellow actor Anna Farris on what genre will take to win awards in Hollywood each of them brainstorms various genre like the New York Police, the French romance, to the scary thriller traveling to the classic western where they have to Draw in a gun sling in an open street..  Also as Phys Darby also Anna Farris play their many parts in roles as the two well-known Air New Zealand Flight attendants Sophie and Daniel presenting Chester the Chihuahua… The    #SafetyinHollywood inflight video was film in the back lots of the Universal studios Hollywood in Studio city where most of the in studio production stages magic takes place……

 

On 18th July 2016,  “ Space X” is on it ninth resupply mission to the International Space Station on “Commercial Resupply Services number nine CSR-9“…. The morning launch from launch complex 40 went without any problems in which the window of launch went on as normal at 12.45 am eastern date time (0445 UTC). Orthough this flight will be relativity textbook easy than the off shore drone ship landings it’s been the first for a while when Space X tries to perfect the process in landing on landing pad with lots of parameters hence using the offshore landing ship to learn from in getting it right..

As into ten minutes of the flight heading into orbit Dragon Nine with its supplies, of research, equipment, vital supplies in which the crew and the International Space Station need  with various experiments ranging from Magnetic Levitation to Frozen wax with highly modified  Bio molecule Sequencer that’s design for the space station.. also for long term to see how DNA responds for the long term travel beyond the moon.. Dragon Nine is expected to arrive at the International Space Station within two days’ time…

STAR TREK ONLINE - The Ranger Class

STAR TREK ONLINE – The Ranger Class

 

The Ranger Class- battle cruiser is one vessel next to Tier up from a Tier two Constitution Class to a Tier five ship… given its size its smaller length than next to Constitution Class given that if you want to upgrade from that unless you waiting for the Constitution Class retrofit.  The Ranger Class is more tougher even though its hull strength is three times more than the Constitution Class (12,000) with a base hulling rating of 36,000… having finding this ship is pretty small in compare what I’m used to now with larger heavier ships like the T6 Star-odyssey class.. it’s like a relearning back what I used to fly when I first started out with medium small ships..

The Ranger Class even though it’s doesn’t fashionable fit the 25th century,  but when you look at the baseline specifications it’s a very tough modest ship given the four forward and rear weapons consoles, in which it can be utilized with all forwarding dual cannons with one torpedo also with all after turrets given that you maxing out on all rapid fires on you bridge officers abilities… with a modest distance in mind when approaching your target.. The Ranger is basically a Tactical, Engineering ship, with science that comes to mind with LT. Commander Science Bridge seating …

 

The Ranger class

The Ranger class

As I was looking at the stats, and as I was modifying the Ranger its design to have maximum weapons firepower due to plus ten onto weapons and engines power so a fleet engine to weapons warp core should provide a best choice for a rapid weapons cool down, in which this ship is highly maneuverability in all cases so cannons and turrets are the best prescription for the Ranger given the ships centre mass is so very closed.. Unless you have a different skillset in mind..

The Ranger comes with a Universal Console – Photonic Decoy Beacon.. in which it sends out a decoy only a short distance behind its existing position least five kilometers away giving that your enemies that you’re there..
