Yet you list the New Orleans class as a kitbash, despite the fact ...

http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/New_...s#Studio_model

It was build FROM a USS Enterprise-D model kit with customs parts, no use from other model kits (there is no Su-27 in there).

If you mention it as a kitbash but the Nebula not then you are flip-floping, their studio model history is almost the same.

You should actually be using this link:

The term "kit-bash" is a behind-the-scenes term used to describe a ship or a station created by the production staff from already existing parts of other ship, and station studio models, and/or additional model kits (not necessarily Star Trek-related). Kit-bashing has been a common method for creating filming models in the science fiction genre, such as in the movie Alien, where they served as the hero models. In Star Trek, however, kit-bash models served primarily as (deep) background elements, the method lending itself for quick and cheap assembly when additional elements were required in a very short time.
So if you want the view the Miranda and such as a Kitbash, who am I to stop you. After all I said it was my opinion a few posts ago.

No that's not the one.

Basically, it was the same as the original TOS Connie with the glowing sensor dish instead of the one with the antenna. I believe there were some other minor alterations (the secondary hull was more rounded, as it ended up on the final model), but not a great deal.

As I say, it was something the modellers came up with and dubbed the Excelsior class. As it predates all the other versions, I tend to think of it as the most authentic version (though still not canon).
Once, I was simply called Mojo. Now, I'm forced into a new name, but don't be fooled, I'm the original STO Mojo!

1. It's fanfiction. So it isn't. Even in the fictional Star Trek univerese it's fictional.

2. I was referring to the "other" fanfiction stats the person above me linked to:

Well I'll have to look at it. Sounds promising if we could mix match the Consitution and Refit section parts in the starship modeler.
