Starfleet Starships - Alien Starships - Charts and Listings

Beginning in 1994, I have designed several starship classes from the foundation of Starfleet to the end of the 24th century. All starships depicted in this section are non-canon. I hope I was careful to fit the new designs into the timeline, complying with the various technical requirements for Starfleet vessels as well as the registry scheme. What you won't find here is fanboyish überships with overblown armament or with extra nacelles in every corner.

Support

I made my starship drawings with Micrografx Designer 4/6/8, and unfortunately there is no possibility to convert them to newer formats without extreme information loss. But I can provide larger bitmap image files if requested. If you are interested in designing starships, you should check the Technical Support about using drawing software and my Starship Design Guidelines with rules for what may be considered good starship design.
