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..
