Brings back fond memories. How I hated fighting the Republic when I first played ST: 25th anniversary. I could have sworn they didn't set their phasers as low as the Enterprise did. But then it was quite sad when she was found dead in space with loss of all hands. :(

Love the use of the Pilot Episode Constitution design and the Franz Joseph Starbase from the Star Fleet Technical Manual! Nice work!

I'm a bit confused. Based on the first pilot episode of Star Trek, wasn't the enterprise older than 5 years? Like maybe around 18 years or more?

I`m not sure if it`s canon, but the was a Capt. Robert April before Pike.

Yes, but Connies were designed for five year missions.

But still, it's not really cannon if you are trying to do so.

lol. Back when the view screen was actually a hole in the bridge hull. Those pilot ships were a bit scary.


What, no love for the Defiant?

Another awesome render! Republic is another one of those Constitution-class starships that didn't get much time in the limelight like the Enterprise did.

Wasn't Republic Kirk's first ever assignment?

And it's also the ship that he had Ben Finney reprimanded for leaving a circuit to the atomic-matter piles open when it should have been closed. If it was left unattended ffor a few more minutes it could have proved catastrophic as it would have destroyed the Republic.
