USS Nelson in Early Voyages comic

2 posts in this topic

In one issue of Marvel's Early Voyages comic dealing with Starfleet's war with the Tholians' shocktroops, the Chakuun, the USS Nelson is shown as having four nacelles. What kind of connection could it have to the Constellation class, which I always assumed to have been named for the USS Constellation destroyed in "The Doomsday Machine"?

The USS Nelson was lost or destroyed by the later 2260s and replaced with another class ship.

The Constellation might or might not be named into the later Constellation class, but since that era ship would have been post 2330, it was considerably newer.

It seems to be a one off, although the design is similar to this later class, but would ultimately have an unstable warp field if all four were on.
