Non-Existent Ships

Note While the existence of some vessels in other sections of this database may be doubtful, the following ships were definitely just made up.

 

"Captain Proton"


"Rocket ship"
General description
This fictional rocket ship was created by Tom Paris for his holonovel series The Adventures of Captain Proton.
Gallery: Holograms
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The exterior of the ship was shown in VOY: "Bride of Chaotica!".
Class specifications
None available

 

"Incredible Tales of Scientific Wonder"


"Deep Space 9"
General description
In an illusory version of the 1950s Benjamin Sisko's alter ego Benny Russell based his novel Deep Space Nine to be published in Incredible Tales of Scientific Wonder on a drawing of this space station.
Known stations
DS/9
  Annotations
The station, quite visibly a retro version of Deep Space 9 in the style of the 1950s, appeared in DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars". It is the most bizarre item in this whole database -- it exists only as a fiction in an illusory story in a fictional TV series. The station's lettering "USAF" indicates that it is run by the USA. Several spaceships are visible on the sketch too.

Various rockets and spaceships, seen in the office of Douglas Pabst, the publisher of Incredible Tales of Scientific Wonder in DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars"
There were just too many sketches and magazine titles to  be listed separately. The red model rocket, on the other hand, looks remarkably similar to one featured in the Tintin comic Destination Moon.

 

Malosian


Ship
General description
Diagrams of this ship design were shown on a display in a simulator aboard Enterprise.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The simulation served to trick Degra, the designer of the Xindi superweapon, into revealing its location in ENT: "Stratagem". The monitors inside the simulator apparently showed status diagrams of the very shuttle the two were supposed to be in. Archer said that the shuttle was of Malosian origin. Most likely the Malosians really exist, but Archer may have chosen a race that Degra was not too familiar with, for any slight mistake in Malosian signage and language may have have blown the whistle on the ruse.
Class specifications
None

 

Museum of Kyrian Heritage


"Warship Voyager"
General description
This version of USS Voyager existed in records of the Kyrians for 700 years until the 31st century. "The warship Voyager - one of the most powerful vessels of its time. Armed with photonic torpedoes and particle weapons, this ship of destruction could wipe out an entire civilization within hours."
Known ships
USS Voyager
  Annotations
Upon the arrival of the real USS Voyager at the Kyrian homeworld a war with the Vaskans broke out that almost wiped out the Kyrian culture. Centuries later the Kyrians obviously followed a revisionist interpretation of history in which they put the blame for the war on the crew of Voyager. In the Museum of Kyrian Heritage historians created an alleged reconstruction of history in which Voyager was a heavily armed warship manned by a ruthless crew. A backup copy of the EMH could eventually rectify the role of his crew (VOY: "Living Witness").
Class specifications
Warship

 

Nexus Reality


Toy fighter
General description
In Picard's Nexus vision, his son Matthew is playing with a model of a fighter spacecraft or aircraft.
Known aircrafts
No name given
  Annotations
Matthew's Christmas gift is actually a Space Marines EVAC Fighter from the "Aliens" action figure line by Kenner (1992). It features firing "Alienator missiles" and a transparent "Alien capture pod" at its aft end. Nothing has been done to disguise the toy's true origin or to make it look like a Trek vessel, so we may safely decide that it is just as unreal in the real Trek universe as it is in the late 20th century.
Class specifications
None

 

Talaxian


Toy ship
General description
It is unlikely that this model was built after an authentic (Talaxian) ship. If it was, the prototype is not recognizable owing to the coarse finish of the toy.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
Brax, the Talaxian boy, holds a toy ship in his hands in VOY: "Homestead". It may represent an existing Talaxian vessel, maybe even one of the disassembled ships that brought the colonists to the asteroid. But it looks overall rather crude, not like an authentic replica, unlike the Malon model ship. The toy was put together using a metallic turned part, possibly a drill or similar tool casing, various fan grills and a transformer coil.
Class specifications
None available

 

Unknown Class

USS Lollipop, mentioned by Will Riker in TNG: "Arsenal of Freedom"
Riker made up this vessel when he noticed that he was talking to a phony Starfleet captain. We know that it's "a good ship", as Riker said. This is a tip of the hat to an old song about "The Good Ship Lollipop" performed by Shirley Temple in "Bright Eyes" (1934).

USS Titan, shown as a previous command (since stardate 47203) in Will Riker's fake future in TNG-R: "Future Imperfect"
Riker will really take command of a USS Titan around stardate 56844.9 ("Star Trek: Nemesis"). Stardate 47203 would be almost ten years sooner, and corresponds to the early 7th season of the real timeline. It is questionable whether the Titan mentioned in "Future Imperfect" is the same ship and whether the alien who created the fake future included the Titan because of precognition. 

USS Vortex, fictional ship in the Doctor's version of Photons be Free, interior seen in VOY: "Author, Author"
On the USS Vortex the poor EMH is suppressed by his humanoid crewmates.
"Capt. Jenkins" murders a crewman just because she wants "Lt. Marseille", the EMH's inveterate enemy, to receive preferred treatment. We know little about the ship itself, but we may assume that it looks not unlike USS Voyager and that it belongs, let's say to the Intrigue class.

USS Voyeur, fictional ship in Tom Paris' version of Photons be Free, interior seen in VOY: "Author, Author"
The USS Voyeur is an overall more pleasant place than the USS Vortex, only that it suffers from the arrogance of its EMH. We know little about the ship itself, but we may assume that it looks not unlike USS Voyager and that it belongs, let's say to the Intimate class.
