- To get off subject a minute, it is unfortunate that a member of the
group has chosen to leave over this issue. It is evident by the
number of members we have here that we all love Trek, some of us are
dare I say passionate about it. But let us remember that everyone is
entitled to his or her opinions. Remember the saying: "To explore
stange new worlds, to seek out new life and civilizations". This
applies not only to the physical but the mental universe. I enjoy
some of the sparring sessions that go on here, but noone should feel
like they should leave the group because his/her opinion is different.
Now...to my question. One of the baddest ships I ever saw was on an
episode of Voyager. The Romulans were trying to hijack it, but the
doctor and the Holographic doctor of that ship stopped them. The ship
was called the Prometheus and could separate into 3 different ships
in times of battle. Has that ship or style of ship appeared anywhere
else besides that episode?

I recall that, after the airing of the episode, John Ordover stated on
the Pocket Books Star Trek BBS that he was thinking of replacing the
Excalibur in New Frontier (then still a very new series) with a
Prometheus-class vessel, which led to speculation around the time of
RESTORATION that Shelby's USS Trident would be Prometheus-class.
I imagine there's a USS Fluffy out there somewhere....
I'd like to see Riker's Titan turn out to be a Prometheus.

Language is a lie. Yes! Language itself. A stone is a stone, the
word 'stone' is not a stone, it is a token, a linguistic banknote
that we exchange to indicate the idea of a stone. It saves us the
trouble of having to haul one out of the ground to show our
interlocutor what we mean.
