So going off the premise that older, smaller ships would have been spared the most damage....has anyone ever seen tje Earth-Romulan War ships on the Starfleet museum page?

I was hoping to get a Ptolemy class tug, myself.  Despite being a cargo hauler, it is substantially smaller than most 'modern' vessels.  She herself is only ~222 meters, a touch longer with a cargo pod attached.  Even with a full pod, an Ambassador class would be multiples of her mass.

USS Fitzgerald NCC-1611 - Missing during mission to carry 10,000 metric tons of anti-deuterium slush to Deep Space Station K-6 in 2267.   Upon arrival, drama might include emergency repairs to the cargo pod to keep its magnetic containment from failing.  The old tug would be kept with the fleet (and desperately protected) because it is the only ship capable of carrying and transporting so much fuel safely.  (Not to mention its utility in antimatter based weaponry, such as photon torpedoes.)  Perhaps commanded by a Lieutenant Commander ranked individual.

I was also thinking of rebooting my Cellan character for this thing, and including one of their battleships...for which I haven't chosen a design... if we are going with the "fleet" premise.. which I like.

Does the tug idea sound okay to you, boss?

It could at that. Who knows?

So is everyone down with each character COing their own ship then? Or shall we just PC a few ships?

So thus far, the following people have expressed that they are definitely in:

Kyan Mackenzie
Dylan Torngate
Ser Conley
Solluk
D'Vid
Kinley Garrison
Jettis Jyur

I think we can officially declare this a go, and begin the story! So the setup is as follows.


1. The anomaly that brings all of our characters to the graveyard appears once every X years. It transports random ships (and small stationary structures) to a distant galaxy. [MACS0647-JD, which is 13.3 billion light years from Earth.] The anomaly drops all ships & small stations into a single location, which is known as the boneyard. It is 2 light years wide, and contains several hundred ships from various races and time periods. Each cycle, the anomaly grabs 55 ships from a specific area and deposits them. (So all of our ships will come from the AQ, or BQ) It grabs them from the entire time spectrum, so there could be an ancient Preserver vessel, or a Brand new ship. (No future ships. Current time and backwards.)

Facts about the anomaly that we can know (In Character)
   
       - Each new ship is deposited at the same moment in time.
       - Larger, more complicated designs seem to take more damage from the trip, and are generally derelict upon arrival.
       - The anomaly presents as a space time distortion. Can be scanned from a few light years away. Once a ship stops to investigate, it grabs them.

With that said, do we all have characters and ships in mind?

My Characters:

Either my NX mission character (Charles Tyvon) in his NX class ship, OR My borg mission character (Alex Torngate, know known as 3rd of 20),

Only issue with the Borg one would be that he'd be displaced from 2400, only five years past what we currently are, on a sovereign class ship.

I'm fine with either character. I could even do a completely new family member of Dylans :)

I would be very interested in this.

I would propose, something you mentioned like the Valiant to have a Cadet ship, since all of the characters are trying to figure out who's in charge and all that from the get go.

So in short most of us can be from different era's?

We can always, bring the Excalibur and bring all those characters.

I have two characters in mind, either Jettis, obviously, or his mother.
In Jettis' history his mother vanished strangely without a trace, and was assumed dead, so obviously she'd also be a good pick. But I just love Jett's character so much I might need to pick him  :P

As for ship, still looking.

Kinley (From either the main or Borg mission timelines) can be great, or I can use Grace if we need another NX type character. I can use whichever character we need.  :)
We're in Starfleet here. Weird is part of the job description.
