FASA Star Trek Bonaventure Class Cruiser Sheet

I'm still on a bit of a Star Trek high at the moment (despite a tempered reaction to Star Trek Beyond) so I decided to work on another set of ship fan rules.  First off, thanks to Mia_36 on the Wolfs Shipyard Forum for graciously allowing me the use of her art for this stat sheet.  She's got multiple versions of the ship from an NX era looking variant to a TOS to a refit design!

The Bonaventure class was introduced in the Ships of the Line Calendar as a single image (not even detailed underneath by the artist since it wouldn't be shown!) and the look definitely intrigued me.  It reminds me of a 1950's style jet fighter ala the F-86 Sabre with the hull incorporated down the midline of the saucer section making it an appropriate predecessor to the 1960's Constitution Class aesthetics.  I took some liberties in the fluff for this ship as there frankly is almost nothing official beyond that it was on the drawing boards during the Enterprise novel era (post Romulan War).  I also decided to go for a more FASA style black and white bold outline image effect as well.  So as not to keep any FASA old fogies like myself waiting (or potentially any Star Fleet Battles old Foleys either!), here is my fan take on the Bonaventure in the FASAverse.  :)  To get the full sized picture suitable for printing, right click and open the image in a new window.
