I believe V'ger became a space god so it and similarities to the Unimatrix are coincidental.

Playable? Definitely not.

As NPCs? I don't see why not. They would be huge, but we already have those ginormous Borg Command Ships.

Enterprise J is definitely out due to size, but smaller Enterprise H that looks similar to Enterprise J is possible. V'Ger has been mentioned by dstahl before that he would like to see it, but might be one of those might see it in a few years thing.

If you google V'ger images, the ship does look very much like the Borg Unimatrix Captial ships. Here is a Little V'ger back Story, The Race of AI that created it are known as "The Body Electric" They believe carbon base life is like how we view bacterial life, One led to the other but AI is the only "True life", and Carbon based life forms are just the precursor to "True life" The goal of the Body electric is to create a mathmatical symbol (like an infinity symbol) in the heavens by rearranging super clusters of Galaxys into a shape that could be seen from anywhere in the universe. So for the remaining existance of the universe all life would be able to see it and know that "True life", powerful life that can move Galaxies existed. So they bascialy wanted to spray paint a "V'ger was here message on the cosmos. So they sent a another V'ger type ship to the center of our Galaxy and started opening worm holes and sucking in Stars and solar systems and flinging them into the super massive black hole at the center of our galaxy. This goal was to increase the size and mass of our black hole and then open worm hole and connect it to the Andromeda galaxy to combine the 2 black holes. Part of it's uber galatic art project. Lucky for us Travler Wesley and Dr. Noonian Singh (he wasent dead, he pulled an Ira Graves and uploaded himself into a very nice andriod body) Were able to gather together other sentiant AI's from our galaxy and convince it to change its plans. For more to the story ready Cold equations book 1 and 3, skip book 2 its just about the Breen trying to take over the Gorn.

As interesting (and confusing) as that sounds, the novels aren't considered canon.

Then again, neither is STO.

I have no idea what we would use V'Ger for.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

The way things are scaled in this game V'ger would be the size of several planets parked end to end to keep it to scale with our ships, so the Borg Command ships are as close as we will likely get. The J is just too big and the H is almost as big. CBS has nixed the J so we won't being getting that, but that is just CBS's J. Our Enterprise F is a unique design made by Cryptic, not part of Star Trek cannon so any ships after F could also be Cryptic designs and bear no resemblance to any that may have been intended for one of the series. I don't see any more Enterprises being likely, maybe different variants, different ship class names etc., but the Odyssey is a brand new design that should last for fifty to a hundred years and any new ship couldn't be christened Enterprise as long as the current one exists.

I have. It saved my nacelles during a mission in the Cardassian story arc (because those Jem Hadar carriers are murder).

The Unimatrix Command ship is around 12,000 metres compared with a 3,000 metre Tac Cube.
V'Ger is 78.000 metres long.
The command ships look like the front half of V'Ger and mirrored.


A V'Ger system in the Gamma Orionis sector Block would be great, with the 'planet' at the centre been the ship, and the 'system' been the purple cloud.
Cryptic can make some really pretty backgrounds like fluidic space.


As for the Enterprise J, it has a length of what 2000 metres, the Atrox is about 1600 metres. Hell the Tarantula Class is larger than the J at 2070 metres.

Cryptic! Need some FREE KDF uniform options that you wont have to make? See Here.

JJ. Trek is just as canon and awesome as all other Trek, Get over it.
