Ages Of the Federation is a new series of total conversions to Sins Of A Solar Empire: Rebellion starting with "The Four Years War". The first mod in the series takes place between the Enterprise and Original series eras, focusing on the conflict between the early Federation and Klingon Empire. A Resurgent Romulan Star Empire, angry and still licking its wounds after its defeat to the federations waits in the shadows, ready to take advantage of a misstep by either the warring powers.

Really. Section 31 is unknown in DS9, yet public knowledge in STD, a century plus prior.
Holographic technology rivals or even surpasses TNG, despite being 110+ years in the past.
Shall I go on or have I made my point?

Spock has an adopted human sister.

Klingons apparently not suffering any symptoms of the Augment virus.

Klingons have cloaking technology.

Spore-drive derpiness.

The D-7 apparently being two completely different classes of ship.

Mudd is apparently a murderous sociopath.

First direct contact with the Mirror Universe.

Major war ending with the Klingon fleet literally within sight of Earth, never mentioned again even though Kirk is a cadet during the years in which DSC takes place.

The Federation ending the war with a threat of genocide.

Spock is apparently a dyslexic shaman who sees visions.

Constitution-class being 25% different from the original design for legal reasons.

'Time crystals' on Boreth.

Potential (but unconfirmed) Borg origin story.

Thank you, Orion, for listing some, but not all the problems all the older fans such as myself have with STD.
Seriously, this is why Kurtzman needs to be fired, why STD should just be considered Picard's nightmare and why I have to watch The Orville every time I watch an episode of that failure as therapy.

In my opinion the inconsistencies in aesthetic and canon aren't DSC's biggest problems.

Compared to every other iteration of Star Trek, DSC is dark, angry, violent, uninspired and uninspiring. It completely abandons the core premise of Star Trek - that humanity can rise above its petty squabbling and reach for a better future. There is nothing aspirational about Discovery.

Some might disagree with me and enjoy the show, and that's fine, but at some point you just have to accept that CBS could just as easily have created something entirely new and original without the Star Trek name.

Could have and SHOULD have. Instead, they basically pulled a Stargate Universe.
Except worse, because SGU was actually watchable and STD is angsty to the point where I'm surprised I'm not seeing goths.

I found SGU completely unwatchable, it lacked the heart of SG1 and SGA. Discovery season 2 i have for the most part i have liked. The one thing biggest thing i cannot get over though is the advanced tech the fed has in this time, AI's ships with holoscreens to hide ships, spore drives, Time crystals!!!!! Also the possible borg origin which should not be done! it was established in Voyager Dragons teeth that that the borg begun in the delta quadrant.

But the shows producers have said that by the end of season 2 discovery will fit into the TOS timeline, but the only way i can see this is by either Michael going back in time and some altering time so the fed is less advanced and the connie looks like the cage connie, or the Discovery is in its own universe and somehow jumps to the Prime timeline. I am scared by the season 3 rumors of the Borg being in it along with Kirk and the return of Jason Isaacs.

@RonTheTrueFan,You've made your point, but some people just like to ignore the facts. changed lore is changed lore. Adding things to change them is changing lore. This guy doesn't seem to like that, so dismisses it. STD isn't very civilized with it's changes honestly.

It's added to the lore, it hasn't contradicted anything in the lore.

They've made a few small changes to the visuals. But not the story/lore.

Story trumps visuals for me.

You can add to lore and contradict other parts, which is exactly what they did.

// Starfleet Temporal Investigations : Temporal Incursion Log - 37-Gamma //
// Temporal Command, Earth. 3052. //

Earth Years - 2256 & 2276
Involved Starships:-
USS Lexington NCC-1709 - Constitution Class (MK-III Post-War Refit)
Launched: 2249, Refited 2269.
Commanding Officer: Commodore Robert "Bob" Wesley
Current Status: Consigned to Starfleet Museum, Earth

USS Republic NCC-1371 - Consitution Class (MK-V Class Overhaul)
Launched: 2250, Refitted 2270.
Commanding Officer: Captain Stephen Garrovick.
Current Status: Training Vessel, Starfleet Academy c2374

Temporal Incursion experienced druing a Chroniton Burst Event (Temporal Event Class: III) at the Pulsar identifiedas PSR J0108-1431. Caused by the warping of space/time by the Pulsar's stellar mass interacting with leaked chroniton particles from a cloaked Tal'Shiar vessel on long range recon.

What occured?: USS Lexington was allowed to view the USS Republic as she appeared in 2276, twenty years in her future.

Action Taken?: Not Applicable. Chroniton Radiation prevented scans of either ship to take place.

Glossary:
PSR - Stellar Classification shorthand for Pulsar, a type of Neutron star.

MK-V Class Overhaul - Commonly called the Constitution Class Refit or Refit Class introduced in the dawn of the 2270s.

MK-III Post-War Refit - "White Duranium" appearance of the Constitution class introduced in the 2260 after the Klingon-Federation war of 2254. See Glossary Appendix for MK-I, MK-II and MK-IV Definitions below. Tritanium/Titanium Alloy replaced with Duranium/Polytanium alloy for a "Cream" finish. H.C.S removed following incompatabilities with new generation of Duotronic systems.

MK-I Constitution Class - Initial design of the ship. Featuring "Antennae pylons" protruding from Buzzard collector ports.

MK-II Constitution Class - Introduced in 2254 based on modifications made to USS Enterprise. Introducing a Tritanium/Titanium alloy for a silver finish, necelle pylons "Split" in the middle for dual-channel EPS lines with reduced risk of interaction, and the introduction, and quick removal of the Prototype, Holographic Communication System (H.C.S).

MK-IV Constitution Class - Nicknamed the Phase-II and was shortlived. Was considered a "Mid-Step" leading up to the introduction of the MK-V, introduced 2268, phased out in 2270 with the USS Enterprise returning to the Earth, San Francisco Fleet Yards as the First MK-V.

What do you think would happen if the Lexington tried to go through the anomaly. Would it end up in the future, or destroyed?

Depends what science you apply. Real world science would get weird. Chronitons are hypothetical, so we don't fully know how they'd interact with anyone or space/time if they were concentrated enough.

In Trek science. There have been many examples of Chroniton fiels allowing people etc to pass through time unscaved for the most part.

Considering the proximity toa Pulsar, there would be a risk of the Lexington or Republic being torn apart. Or even being cleaved in two if the window inexplicately closed.

For the most part the ship would likely become stranded in the future until Starfleet or Temporal Investigations decide what to do. Send her back via Time Warp, go back and prevent the two ships going to the system, or swear them to secrecy and refit the ship/scrap it.

Holy sh...you made me spit out some good apple cider. Now I would be rather irritated normally, but since it's a Connie Refit it evens out.

Is this part of the mod? I thought the TMP stuff was FAR later down the line.

The Connie Refit will not be appearing in AotF - this screenshot is just a bit of fun. It will be a major part of AotF2, though. ;)

As a lifelong star trek fan i know the original enterprise design is sacred and we all love it for the legacy of fantastic ship designs it spawned however it is a product of 1960s ingenuity and so is limited by its time. While it rightly deserves it place in the mod i wonder if you would consider a separate add on that perhaps changes the skin or even perhaps the model and skin to something of your own design in line with the other ships within the mod or even, dare i say it, Discovery?

Nope. It's already in line with the other Federation ships in the mod
