BRAD'S COMMENTS:  The saucer and hull on this light cruiser are similar to the Reliant (Miranda) class, with the difference being that the single warp engine is mounted on a pylon that extends well beneath the ship in a direct line with the impulse deck.  When I first saw this ship I viewed it as a somewhat veiled ripoff of the Saladin destroyer from the old Star Fleet Technical Manual!  As a matter of fact, I have always been tempted to write up a whole new page for a TMP-era "refit" of the Saladin class, and just use this graphic as the image for the "refit" model since the Saladin and the Durrett are so damned similar looking
        Game-wise, the Durrett is a very light cruiser, and might qualify as a destroyer if it had more weaponry.  Shields are good, but the single warp engine does not give a player a lot of juice to work with.  If you try and power up phasers you invariably don't have much to spare for the shields, and vice versa, which limits this craft in extended battles with similarly-sized opponents.  On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being whoopass and 1 being limp-wristed, I'd give this cruiser design a 5.
        Again, thanks to fan/gamer Neale Davidson for his excellent re-draw of the Durrett!
