USS Columbia NX-02 by kavinveldar USS Columbia NX-02 by kavinveldar
Columbia (NX-02) was a Terran NX-class heavy cruiser in service to the United Earth Starfleet in the mid-22nd century. She was commissioned in 2154, and her commanding officer was Erika Hernandez.
In 2156, while escorting a mining convoy from the Onias Sector the Columbia was attacked by a group of Romulan starships. The Romulans used their telecapture system to take control of the Columbia and use her to destroy the convoy. The crew of the Columbia then faked a self destruct by detonating a photonic torpedo simultaneously with a brief warp jump, allowing the vessel to escape destruction itself. The Columbia was severely damaged in the attack, its warp drive and communications systems were irreparably damaged. The disappearance of the Columbia became one of the most enduring mysteries in Starfleet history for over two centuries, known only to have been last reported near Tau Ceti. In 2373 the mystery took a new twist when the Columbia was discovered at its final crash site on a planet in the Gamma Quadrant by the crew of the Federation starship USS Defiant.

nice work.

any other major structural differences from the NX-01?
kavinveldar Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2011
Yep... armored nacelles, larger, more square-structured deflector dish, armored plates over certain doors... larger engine mount. Lots of little improvements.

can you do a side by side comparison piece, with the NX-01 to NX-06?

seperate images for side, top, and front comparisons to keep the image size managable?

I can do that... give me some time to figure things out.. I just had surgery, and am still heavily medicated for your protection!
