Finaly, I was able to get more completed on the Enterprise-D/Galaxy Class Project. I have added a little more to the design and construction history of the Galaxy Class:

The design layout was an updated version used on the Ambassador Class. This modern design had also been applied to other vessels such as the New Orleans Class and the Nebula Class. Spaceframe construction pieces were fabricated and then assembled on the surface at the Utopia Planetia Fleet Yards surface construction docks. During the debate over how the final design would be played out, construction was halted several times. While agreements on the final designs were being finalized, the overall spaceframes were finished on the Galaxy, Challenger, Enterprise and Yamato. After the debate ended, the Galaxy was finalized as each system was placed and frequently upgraded. Work on the other vessels continued, but at a slower pace.

            After the Galaxy was deemed appropriate, she was launched into orbit to be furbished and completed by the orbital construction teams. After some testing on the Galaxy, main construction was continued until ready for launch into orbit on the other three vessels. The Galaxy, after final completion, was launched as a prototype vessel. After a maiden voyage and several test voyages, the Galaxy was brought back into drydock for final systems upgrades and refit before launch into full service. Soon after, the Challenger, Enterprise and Yamato were launched, respectively. Construction on the final two vessels, Odyssey and Venture, were completed and launched rather quickly.

            Six additional frames were fabricated and set, however full construction orders were put on hold until it was deemed necessary to bring more Galaxy Class vessels into service. This was due to the gigantic engineering feat the Galaxy class was to build; Starfleet simply didn’t have the resources or need to apply such a major engineering project. Construction on these vessels continued after the Borg invasion threat of 2364, as well as an additional two vessels (though one project was scrapped and the frame later become one for a vessel in the 3rd Construction Group). These starships were constructed mostly in orbit, and the last vessel of this series, the Oraidhe was launched in 2371.

  1. Technically the star drive sections was destroyed, the saucer was abandoned & scuttled

  2. True, but the saucer was damaged beyond salvageability, classifying it as destroyed. Listings like this are not that specific as to how the ship was destroyed.

    Thank you for your comment!
