    A while back, there was a thread about future ideas for a Trek series. One of my suggestions was the adventures of the first Bajorian/Federation starship. I know fans have designed starships before, I wonder if anyone has tried to design a ship like this.

    It would have to be built with Federation cooperation, considering the clunkers they showed in the series. Somehow I can't picture the Bajorans venturing too far out into space, away from the Prophets.

    I don't know. The Bajorians have become quite the interstellar player as of late. In the seven years of DS9, the Bajorians:
    1. Made peace treaties with Cardassia
    2. Begin colonies in the Gamma Quadrant
    3. Served aboard starfleet vessals.
    4. Went up against the Romulans on matters.

    I could just see a Federation starship being heavily designed by the Bajorians and reflecting their style. I imagive having the basic design of the Delta Flyer, Prometheus...etc. Slick and more streamline. Yet, in the color of bronze or dark gold. Also the hull would have a design of an ancient solar ship's sails on it. Seems like the Bajorians liked that style of color. The bridge would be inbetween the no-nonsense Bajorian resistence fighter configuration and a Voyager based science ship.

    The first federation ship to be purposly designed with the ablative armor from Voyager, that they got from the future.

    The main mission of this ship would be to explore the Gamma quadrant..seek out all the stuff that classic star trek did.

    With Kira in command, or someone else altogether? She would be the most experienced in first contact there.

    She would be my first choice. I could also see either Odo or a Jem'hadar elder serving onboard also. As a representative of the Dominion. Most of the initial exploration would skirt along Dominion space.

    What I would like to see:
    Captain: Kira
    1st officer: human (or Ezri Dax)
    2nd officer: Andorian
    Tactical: Bajorian
    Helm: Lt. Nog (would be good expierence for him)
    Doctor: Bajorian
    Engineer: Bajorian/former maquis
    Liason Officer for the Dominion: Odo or Jem'Hadar Elder

    Most serving onboard would be Bajorian. I could even see a young Vedek serving as a councellor.

    I wonder, though, how much they would get done if they had to stop and pray on a regular basis.

    Lol, well that would just be one more quirk in a majority Bajorian ship. I have a feeling that the Andorian and humans wouldn't understand maybe, but who knows.

    I don't think the human and Andorian would understand being fed hasperat all the time, though.

    The Andorian might like something hot and spicy.

    They'd better hope Odo doesn't find out, then.

    Well, thats only if you consider Kira hot and spicy...lol.

    Another addition to this crew should be a Cardassian orphan left on Bajor. Most of them should be old enough to serve now if you consider the ages seen when Garak and Dr. Bashir visited an orphanage.

    I'd think by now, though, Cardassia would be trying to repatriate orphans and other Cardassians to replace population killed off in the Dominion War.

    True, but I would think a great deal of them don't think of them as Cardassians anymore but Bajorian born. It could be a character trying to find themselves.

    Trying to find themselves? Sound like a talk show. "Tell Dr. Garak all about it."

    Well, every modern Star Trek series had a character that was trying to "find" themselves.

    Next Generation: Data mostly and even Worf
    DS9: Worf to a certain extent and def Ezri
    Voyager: Kes, Doctor and Seven
    Enterprise: Not sure, haven't got to see enough of that show

    I just thought a Cardassian born and raised on Bajor would be a character that would have alot of inner struggle. Quite a few members of the crew would have fought Cardis and might not get along with him. Of course, being from a people that terrorized Bajor and later sold out the Alpha Quadrant might put a krimp on ones ego.

    Any idea for a name or ship class for such a ship?

    Hmm. A Kira Class ship? Ha ha. I don't know, how about Resistance Class? Tribute to Bajorans and Maquis...

    Maybe; Opaka Class or Emissary Class.

    If Emissary class then the first ship (the first Bajorian/Federation ship) could be named The Sisko. Other future ships could be named after things that connected with the Emmissary; USS New Orleans, USS Yates, USS Defiant-C (I think), USS Akorem, USS B'hala..etc.

    The Opaka Class ships could be named after past Kais.

    They could create a Maquis class of small raiders that could serve as shuttlecraft on the ship. Think of a Delta Flyer modified with Bajorian designs.

    Would be a good excuse to bring O'Brien back. I could see him at Utopia Planitia as Scotty was before him.

    Prophet Class?

    That could be a good name, but what is the Bajorian name for the Prophets? That would probally fit better.

    I don't think they ever gave a Bajoran name for the Prophets. Would the ships have a saucer section?
