Very true...the D'Kyr-type ship would be simply a heaviy armed science vessel. They were by terms Combat Cruisers that were used for combat while having equal capacity of a science vessel. So more likely a another Recon vessel-type. Though hope it does have some small ability like to carry dual cannon (and not the heavy type), give the science type and tacs something to fly worthy of combat nature.
Cannons i doubt but I could see it being a recon style science ship since the nebula is an engineering styled science ship(regardless of how good or bad people thing it is). Maybe make it a science flavoured excelsior with a LT Com tac.
I wonder if the Warp nacelles will move when out of combat, according to mem-alpha...they should.
"When the warp drive was not in use, the ship's annular-warp nacelle was dropped into the vertical position; when the engines were powered down, or preparing to launch its auxiliary craft, the nacelle was folded horizontally into the primary hull."
..... don't be so literal. Ifs not an exact recreation, its a "remake"
Do Vulcans really seem like the type to throw away a good design?
Remake, is that what they now call re-re-reusing ships?:p
They used to be called magic "refits" but now the magic word is "remake".
Appearently they do otherwise the Vulcan ships in "Enterprise " would have looked
like the T'Pau type...or the other way around if you prefer.
But obviously the Vulcans recognize when a design needs to be replaced instead of
reusing it to death as an excuse for a lack budget that prevents them from getting new
And they do stop using ships
