Webber class civilian runabout Rum Tum Tugger, shown on the roof of the College of Astrophysics, Dewclaw University. This picture was also done for a scene that got cut, but it served quite well for another, closely related one in the final story.

Proposed design for Argus class deep space reconnaissance vessel: a Verne class hull equipped with a collapsible Class 3 Deep Space Hyper-Spatial Anomaly Detector array.

2002 Terry Knight

F.S.S. Argus, first of the Argus class of deep space survey vessels. The Stariionae attack on Chakona exposed a significant weakness in the Janus Project's array of fixed observatories. Therefore the Federation Science Corps approved the deployment of several smaller, mobile arrays to be mounted on Verne class hulls already under construction.

Balmoral class frigate F.S.S. Cumberland. 280.98 meters overall length, 35,121 gross registered tons, compliment 375. Max speed warp 7.6, max cruise range 1.7 years. Warp drive: Hamilton Industries SYD2K dual node system. Impulse drive: 8 Rolls-Royce/Turmanskii RT12 fusion motors.

Bayern class science vessel F.S.S. Sutherland. 272.06 meters overall length, 22,081 gross registered tons, compliment 145. Max speed warp 7.3, max cruise range 1.5 years. Warp drive: Hamilton Industries SYD1N dual node system. Impulse drive: 6 Rolls-Royce/Turmanskii RT10 fusion motors. Converted from the retired Glenrowan class frigate to extend the useful life of the hulls.

Changi class heavy cruiser F.S.S. Lijang. 362.45 meters overall length, 107,169 gross registered tons, compliment 850. Max speed warp 8.5, max cruise range 2.5 years. Warp drive: Hamilton Industries NA1A triple node system. Impulse drive: 6 Rolls-Royce/Turmanskii RT640 fusion motors. (Note: the size comparison on this sheet is slightly off.)

For the battle scene in Chapter 6 I needed detail views of what each type of ship looked like from the rear. Not to scale.
