Well, here's another addition to the TOS fleet. This is the U.S.S. Walker. She's what I'm calling a Ranger-class Patrol Ship. She's built from Pdmccool parts and modified Rawen warp engines, with some additional repainting and hull registries by me. The names "Walker" and "Ranger" are a play on "Walker: Texas Ranger" with Chuck Norris. The NCC-364 just looked good on the hull and because this is supposed to be an old ship by TOS time, I picked a number that is below the 500s used in the Star Fleet Technical Manual. I always liked it on Star Trek when we got a glimpse at ships that came before the Enterprise. I wanted to create something that would show how far Starfleet had come to get to the Enterprise we know. I could see some of the earlier ships would be very small with limited range and volume. Walker was one of the first to use the warp engine design we see on Enterprise. Her small engines can make Warp 3 max. Her compact design is sturdy, but limited. She has more phaser power than a Scout-class ship, but for a shorter duration. These ships formed the backbone of the young Starfleet until the larger capital ships came along. Old, but still useful, ships like Walker were eventually reclassified as Patrol Ships and given defensive duties for UFP territory. The Walker design is a little chunky on purpose to make her look like an older ship. I started this a long time before I started taking build pics, but she's a straight Rawen-type build. I modified some Rawen pylons to bring the warp drive closer to the hull. The engines are scaled Rawen parts with the Starfleet pennant redone to retain its size. The remaining parts are Pdmccool parts. I mounted the navigational deflector on the primary hull because it looked ridiculous everywhere else. And that's it!
