Masterson Class Frigate Finished by HandofManos Masterson Class Frigate Finished by HandofManos
The Masterson Class is the TMP version of the earlier topdown versions (ENT/TOS/TMP) I uploaded earlier.

Mainly used for internal patrol/defense the Masterson (named after sherrif Bat Masterson) can be found in many core and outer systems of the Federation patrolling the main spacelanes as well as performing a police role in the more crowded orbits of major worlds.

Armed with 2 dual phaser banks and a single fire torpedo tube the Masterson is capable to stand its own against most smugglers and pirates but lacks the firepower needed against warships like the D7 or Warbird. It does have its own shuttle (2 person) and is the ideal rearguard ship in Federation held space

i had a design in my head, after seeing an image, and saw a couple of similar style starships on google. i had someone called sean tourangeau do a design for me, but even though the ship was good, he didnt really follow the brief i gave, and the ship wasnt really what i wanted. if you pass me your email, i can forward on to you my brief, and images etc. mine is baylis_andrew@hotmail.com

many thanks

you're welcome. The reason I love the nacelles so much, is they remind me so much of the refit 1701's nacelles from the first 6 movies....

Now, here is My version of the refit 1701 [link] ....

Thanks and that is actually good that they remind you of the movies since it was/is my intention to see this ship as a unit being used in that era. Ah and your ship would be for the alternate trekline sort of speak

sorta. More like what JJ and crew should have done for the exterior in the first movie. At least they got the saucer; interior, uniforms, and shuttles right....

This makes me think of a Centaur updated to the Sovereign class era (very compact to the point of being nacelles stuck onto a saucer, but with features in common with the sovereign, namely the curvature of the secondary hull and the side lobes where it meats the saucer at the bottom) in much the way I think of an Akira as a Galaxy class era Miranda (A saucer and a roll-bar with nacelles at the bottom and torpedo launchers at the top).

Of course since these is a sort of stubby secondary hull, I guess the centaur has it beat on compactness since it is just saucer and nacelles.
Love it, but for some reason it looks more elegant from the top than the side.

Have to agree the top was more streamlined then the side turned out but wanted it to have a shuttlebay :D as such it needed some space

you could have two roll bars on dorsal one ventral to beef up its offensive capabilities

When I saw the name, my first thought was of Chase Masterson. I guess Bat makes more sense as the inspiration, though.

Wow this is a very cool design. I always wondered how law enforcement would be handled by the Federation and Starfleet. It would make since they would have ships specialized for policing Federation territory.
