Background informationEdit

  • Sean Scott's centerfold entry, "Fleet Museum", contained a canonical continuity error: depicted as the USS Enterprise-B was a standard Excelsior-class vessel instead of the refit version. The reason for this was that a suitable digital model version of the refit configurations did not yet exist, the original ILM digital model being both unavailable and unsuitable for the print franchise. Scott had to make do with the model Ed Giddings had previously constructed of the standard configuration.
  • For the 2014 edition of the Ships of the Line, Bonchune's "Buttoned Up" was re-named to "Armored Voyager".
