I thought it was just a bigger Orion engine. Anyway, the normal third engine of the CA is mounted to the bottom of the hull. I would assume the larger engine is mounted in the same location.

Captain's Log #3 details the upgrade of the Hammerfield and doesn't make mention of the engine being a non-standard Orion one or not. The text just specifies it being increased by 50%.

For some reason I remember it being a non standard engine. It was unable to double. I always assumed it was a fed recovered item. But it could be someone else's 15 pt engine.

More research must be done!! Very Happy Very Happy

The idea had to start somewhere

Want to thank you all for the input. 25 + years of ST & SFB fluff blurs at times. Not to mention the numrous beer laided speculation with fellow fans. Cpts Log #3 from 1984. I was 28 in Scheinfurt Germany, here I am about to turn 54 and the story still sticks out in my mind, All be it a bit fuzzy . Shows that good stuff passes the test of time. Think I will go with a Orion DN Class Engine. Make it stand out and strike fear like an enforcer should. Very Happy

I've always thought it was top mounted and never got the memo that it couldn't double. I've never really played that ship enough to know.

Having a lucid moment!!! Very Happy

I just remembed why I thought the Hammerfield could not double its engine. Some where I got it into my mind that it was a recovered engine. If memory serves me right. ( and it dosen't allways.) ships used by Orions but not of Orion construction can not double the engine.

Ahhh. That makes me feel a bit less stupit. But not by much. Embarassed

like the OK6 conversion ship. that couldn't double it's engines because they were Klingon engines.
