This build is taking a slingshot maneuver into the past (or is it the future since their past is our...oh forget it) to build a ship from the early days of Star Trek - the Daedalus class U.S.S. Essex by Diego Cortez. The Daedalus class has never been seen onscreen, so there is no "canon" version of the ship. This model is based off the model of the U.S.S. Horizon seen on Deep Space Nine and the model built by Greg Jein for the Star Trek Encyclopedia. I made further alterations by redrawing the windows, hull markings and warp drive ends. The secondary hull is a simple cylinder. I glued the ends to 1mm chipboard for strength and used a dowel to press the tabs flat against the rear end. Then added the cone and what I assume is the navigational deflector to the front. When I redid the hull markings I changed the "United Federation" to "United Earth Space Probe Agency." UF sounded strange and has never been used onscreen. Since this supposed to be one of the oldest spaceship designs and likely pre-UFP and pre-Starfleet, it made sense to me that Essex would fall under the original governing body of Starfleet - the UESPA.
