Beyond Veridian by thefirstfleet Beyond Veridian by thefirstfleet
"Captain's log, Jean-Luc Picard reporting. To be honest, I do not know whether to congratulate Number One for his unorthodix method or not. Following the catastrophic failure of the Enterprise's weapon szstems, he ordered the Duras Sisters' ship to be rammed. He saved the ship and the crew... he saved me. But somehow, I feel that I have left something on Veridian, or maybe beyond it... in the depths of the Nexus..."

"Captain's log, Suliko Metlesits reporting. Dad would laugh his uniform off. We're being pulled off the Cardassian border just to escort the Enterprise back home. Some flagship, getting beaten up by a D-12. I remember dealing with those on my old Sieglinde... the glory days... Personal addendum: must get some time to visit Jolia."




Okay, here's the deal: In the Polarisverse, Riker had his balls in place and they rammed the frag out of that BoP. The Enterprise-D survived and was repaired later on. Picard never went to the Nexus, Kirk is still there. Why? Because he will be needed one day, when Mankind's Bane returns. And yeah, in the 24th century, Suliko got a bigger ship than the trusty old Centaur class.

 Don't get me wrong, I've loved the Enterprise-E since I first saw her on the big screen in 1996 (hard to believe it's been 20 years), haloed by one of Jerry Goldsmith's variations of his Enterprise theme helping to introduce her.

 But either the Enterprise-D should have been outgunned and outmaneuvered by nothing less than a Vor'cha (preferably, the Duras sisters had the connections in low places to get them a Negh'Var), or THIS is what should have happened.

 And with that damage to the portside nacelle, I'm surprised it's even still active, let alone fully lit up.

Pretty cool.
This is how it should`ve happened but the writers of Generations WANTED to destroy the Enterprise-D mainly because they used the 6 foot model from the first two seasons of TNG and they were like "Screw this let`s just destroy it."
Ramming the Daras sisters Bird of Prey makes better sense because of the size comparisons and no bird of Prey can survive a collision from a galaxy class. 
Also the Enterrprise-D SHOULD have bombarded them with a damn barrage of phasers and torpedoes instead of just one phaser shot and one torpedo shot considering the Galaxy class has like 12 phaser arrays (14 but that's only on the U.S.S.Venture).
That also occurred in DS 9 with the Oyssee if they bombarded the Jem Hadar fighter with multiple phaser hits they probably wouldn't have been kamikazied in the stardrive and went back through the wormhole with just a busted up warp nacelle instead of being destroyed outright.
That was the major problem with TNG. The Galaxy had major firepower but wasn`t really given the opportunity to show it.

An ending to Generation that doesn't make the heroes look criminally incompetent?  I don't know how to feel.  

I love the texture you gave both ships--though the lifeboat hatches are a little thick for my tastes, but I find it hard to care about in the face of the amazing detail.  Beautiful job.  I hope nobody was in Ten-Forward.

I'm glad you like it.

I have to admit, the last Trek movie I hold for canon is TUC. The TNG movies are all bad. Even First Contact! It made the Borg ridiculous and Cochrane a major asshole.

Beyond
The rim of the star-light
My love
Is wand'ring in star-flight
I know
He'll find in star-clustered reaches
Love,
Strange love a star woman teaches.
I know
His journey ends never
His star trek
Will go on forever.
But tell him
While he wanders his starry sea
Remember, remember me.

"Boy Number One, it's a good thing you thought to ram the tiny Bird of Prey... Imagine what would've happened if you had wasted valuable seconds trying to finesse it with some harebrained maneuver only AFTER handing helm control of the ship to the untrained COUNSELOR..." Picard mused.

Riker chuckled good-naturedly, but it gave way to a frown. "That's... oddly specific, captain. Are you sure you're alright?"

Picard shuddered some. He had brushed with the Nexus and peered into other universes ever-so-briefly. Why, in one of the other universes, his entire family was wiped out offscreen as an emotional hook!

Hehe, I like this version MUCH better. D's got the absolute crap knocked out of her but she's intact and kicking, just not warp capable. Surely the Trafalgar's engines have got enough arse (read: a$$) to lug the Enterprise along at a nice warp speed using the tractor beam as well right, that's why she's there?

Side by side, you can see the difference.
The Galaxy-Class is disproportionate,
but you reconfigure the same saucer, engineering hull and nacelles and boom, a much better looking ship---Nebula-Class.

From that Log entry it would seem Picard did go into the Nexus, however instead of seeing his ship exploding in the Xmas decoration he saw the D ramming the BoP? Perhaps then it was Riker that Guinan guided him too to help him emerge rather than Kirk? Not only that but when he emerged ("at the place you came in" instead of 'any time, any where') he found Riker and co waiting with Doc Loony in custody?

Thing is in the Polarisverse I can imagine them having rotating shield frequencies all the time post Borg so the Duras sisters plan would not have worked? Perhaps they had La Forge bring a bomb on board? Or a hypnotic suggestion that made him blow the core? Or simply had lots of fire-power and jumped the Enterprise as she warped in for a more Epic battle??

Well, this is how it happened:

Picard was in the Nexus, but never met Kirk (the old badass is still in the ribbon, awaiting the Polarisverse version of Ragnarok). Riker had his balls on maximum and when the Enterprise's main systems failed because of the Warp core damage, he ordered the Helmsman to ram the frag out of that BoP. Geordi managed to eject the Core, which detonated, but doing slight damage to the Enterprise. The Duras Sisters were mashed in their BoP, the Enterprise was trashed, but survived. Picard had enough sense of strategy to know he could simply ambush Dr. Loony. and instead of coming back to the wrong moment, he chose a better point of time, and ended Loony's plans with a fractured jaw.
The damaged Enterprise limped back to the nearest Starbase, under protection of the Trafalgar, with Suliko secretly laughing her ass off about the Flagship being so trashed by an obsolete Bird of Prey.

You're quite right, there's no need to resort to harsh language.

What I should have said was the Enterprise E is a homely, putrescent, graceless piece of detritus, whose "design-by-committee" nature is all to apparent in it's chaotic lines and unpleasant dearth of aesthetic theme.

Better?

Like how you saved the D. I will admit the crash sequence in the movie made me wonder. If the saucer section can glide that well unpowered, why was it not designed with landing gear? Data could probably parallel park her on the Federation headquarters lawn, right next to Kirk's infamous HMS BOUNTY. :lol:
