With the onset of the Dominion War in the mid 2370s, Starfleet was faced with an urgent need for more combat capable starships. Several vessels already under construction were rushed to completion using the limited resources available. One such example is U.S.S. Mareja, a new Intrepid-class scout. She was completed with warp engine nacelles of the type used on New Orleans-class frigates in place of the more complex variable-geometry nacelles typically installed on Intrepid-class starships. She also received armored hull plating over her window openings to conserve transparent aluminum.

U.S.S. Mareja is named after the province of Mareja on the Federation member world Aeryth.

Model notes:

This model was built by Markus C. Nee and was completed in July 1998. It is in 1:1400 scale, and is approximately 11" long.

The primary and secondary hull components are from the Monogram Voyager 3-Piece Set. The warp nacelles are from an AMT/Ertl 1:2500 scale Galaxy class model. Nacelle pylons are scratchbuilt from sheet styrene, and impulse engine grills are from a Cannon and Company diesel locomotive detail set.
