It's Steve allowing Mogoose to "run wild" and design a ship that is their version of a Klingon.

In SFU game-terms, it's a never-built cruiser design. It was in the Stellar Shadows Journal Vol.1 product (all of which was "conjectural" fun-but-not-real things).

More explanation is here:

Personally, I don't think it looks like an SFU Klingon at all. To me it looks like a FASA K-23 and a Next Generation Vor'cha got drunk and made an ugly baby. However, there's no rule saying I have to buy it when it comes out.

I actually kinda like it. Seems megatronish.

Are they going to make an F15 and C19, too?

I thought the D-17 was a FASA creation?

FASA might have used the same name for something they did (it's an obvious name-derivation from D-7).

The D17 is basically a modified D-7, Phaser arrays and the hull were rearranged to change the firing arcs ---

Mongoose did it's version (changing the boom also), to see if it would draw interest from an audience other than current SFU customers ---

Did we do an F-15? Oh well, I guess we can. C-19? Hmmm.... C-17? D-15? E-14? The mind boggles.

No, I am pretty sure an F-15 (and so forth) have not been done. However, I can't imagine it would take any real effort to do so.

My point is more on the miniature front. If Mongoose wants differently styled Klingons (as an alternative to the traditional Klingons), then providing at least an F-15 in addition to the D-17 would be beneficial, as it lets buyers have different sized ships to choose from. Giving them a D-17 by itself gives them a ship. Adding in an F-15 and C-19 would give them a fleet.

I for one really like the Idea of the Klingon 10s fleet.

Just stick a boom on Galactica and paint it up like the Partridge Family bus. THAT will attract new players Rolling Eyes

I don't know what that looks like Cowboy. But it sounds really ugly.

I like the D17 - it is nice to have a couple of different units in the fleet (and in SFB terms you could say it was just too different to allow ease of logistics & maintenance compared with the more traditional designs).
