NCC-542 Samuel Roberts Patrol Frigate . A light patrol frigate - based off of the design of the Okinawa class Frigate from the game "Starfleet Command" . Statistics Crew: 22 Armament: 6 light phaser banks, two photon torpedo launchers Shuttlecraft: One Assault Shuttle Concept Notes: Interplay's 1999 game "Starfleet Command" features the Okinawa class Frigate, light but maneuverable, great for hunting down Orion Pirates or tangling with the occasional Klingon Bird of Prey. The first time I played that game - I wished I could translate the sense of speed and style into LEGO, something impossible at the moment. Earlier this year, I dug the game out, blew the dust off of the CD cover, and played it once more -- and again felt the urge to try and translate that ship into bricks. This time, I thought I could give it a try. After much testing, I found that the only wedge plates that would fill a 360 degree circle were the 3x12 plates. Thus began a massive bricklink order that kicked off this build Because I am compulsive about including "functional" interiors to the ships I build, scale dictated that this would be a much smaller ship than the Okinawa, which was 77m wide (about 252 studs wide at the scale I'm using...) -- so it became a light patrol frigate with roughly the same lines as the Okinawa. Overall view of the saucer section -- a very difficult build from a stability standpoint. The saucer is held up by four pillars and the engineering hull. The center of the saucer section is the transporter room, ringed by a series of small rooms; lavatories, storage, damage control, weapons locker, shower, captain's quarters, and first officer's quarters. The crew mess & food replicator. Fortunately, they still serve pizza. The portside officers quarters The Crew dining area / common area Officer's Mess & conference room Recreation Room - with zero-G billiards :) Medical Bay & Science Lab Transporter room Bridge Brig - as a patrol frigate, handling light pirate ships would be one of its primary duties Airlock Shuttlebay Bridge (facing aft) Engineering Cargo Deck Warp Core & Secondary Engineering Photon Torpedo Chamber & Launch Rails Design Notes I used information from the game and from Memory Beta to help understand the shape of the Okinawa
