Starships stuff: Merian class, Stargazer, and the Enterprise

A bit of starship stuff, starting with a sneak peak at a potential Ships of the Line image. Master starship designer Mark Rademaker posted the following image on Facebook, featuring the Full Circle fleet's Merian class ships USS Planck and USS Curie. This was an alternate idea he's been working on for his contribution to the 2015 Ships of the Line calendar, but he couldn't get it done in time. He might work on it for 2016 though!

Mark also posted several images of another configuration of the Merian class, a Constellation class-like quad-nacelle version. Here's one view, you'll find a couple more in Mark's Star Trek gallery on Facebook.

Speaking of the famous four-nacelled ship, The Official Starships Collection website has been updated with a new image of the forthcoming USS Stargazer issue:

Finally, going a bit further back in the timeline, Star Trek effects artist Daren Dochterman posted a new video featuring the refit USS Enterprise, apparently facing an invasion of alternate timeline lens flares! Continue after the jump to watch that:

On thing bugs me about these continuing updates on USS Curie and USS Planck. (SPOILER ALERT) I've read the recent Voyager novels and both of those ships have been destroyed. Soooo we're never going to see or hear from these 2 ships again. Why are they going to such trouble to bring their designs to life?

Why not? We regularly see ships from across the timeline, we don't have to focus only on the leading edge.
