Hood Class Battlecruiser commissioned!

After eight months, Bill Krause has finished his next incredible model...namely the U.S.S. Hood battlecruiser!

Bill generously allowed me to use his images for one of my FASA stat sheets last year and I decided to try and update it in honor of the launch of the ship from his Tycho shipyard.  Some minor cosmetic changes were made on the build compared with the initial prototype images I used on my sheet and I wanted to reflect those when possible.  Scott Bell-Fleitas recently put out the official deckplans for Bill's ship through his Starship Dynamics company and also generously allowed me to adapt his updated images of the Hood as well.

While I wasn't able to follow Bill's official fluff and stats now available exactly in my FASA stat sheet, I did revise the sheet from the previous version to better reflect them.  In the FASAverse, the U.S.S. Hood has a storied and tragic history that doesn't extend out of that expanded universe timeline and I instead fit the stats to make sense within that scope.  Without further talk, here is my revised (and hopefully final!) Hood Class stat sheet for the FASA Star Trek Combat game.


  1. Lost me a bit, probably means I will have to hand in my ST street cred membership card, but where does this fit in the timeline?

  2. It's totally fan made by Bill so I wouldn't assume anyone would know automatically. It's late TOS era so just after Kirk and friends' five year mission on the original show.

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Defiant and as the ship lost to the interphase anomaly, not Hood.

  5. In the FASA game universe, the Hood was also lost specifically to an interphase anomaly.

    Since I'm making rules for that particular game universe, I try to stay true to that canon as well even if it has been abandoned in the 25 years since it went out of production.
