(This article has a real-world perspective)
The Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 4: Starships of the Original Series Era is a sourcebook based on the Last Unicorn Games Spacedock! system and was written by Steven Long. It was released online after Star Trek RPG licence was transferred to Decipher.
Use in Star Trek: The Farthest Star
Several ship specifications, history and descriptions used in Star Trek: The Farthest Star are from this sourcebook. However, since this sourcebook was completed before the release of Star Trek: Enterprise there exists several conflicts with what is now canon. These sections will be ignored and/or adjusted to better fit the continuity of the TV series.
