A few of years ago, a number of very talented artists on
started creating future versions of the enterprise, all kicked off by Picard's
line when he ordered the abandonment of the Enterprise-E (paraphrased):
"...There always are more letters of the alphabet..."
"To boldly go where no one has ever dreamed
of going before"

Commissioned by the Universal Sentient
Federation in the 401st century - Launched Universal date
Class – Only one ship was commissioned
used the most advanced technology of the time.
The Pi-Meson class's chaos-engineers
entirely did away with both baryonic and fermionic matter, as well as energy
fields, as inadequate for the mission requirements.
The hull was a standing soliton wave of coherent 11-dimensional
space-time. It could scale to any
arbitrary size from just above Planck Length to just below the size of the
Visible Sentient Universe. In the
illustrations above the ship is 10000 meters long.
Here is a short video of the ship following it's ancient
ancestral namesake on a mission of information collection. <<video>>
The ship could duplicate itself.
The exact copies worked in perfect synchronization on many missions and
independently on parallel missions. The
duplicates were reabsorbed without loss of data after the missions were
finished. On one mission the ship
created 10^968 copies of itself, although this was not considered the maximum
number of possible duplicates the ship could create.
The ship could also change configuration in Planck Time as the
mission required, or as needed to accommodate the universe visited. The
pictures above are considered the "alpha mode" of the ship. The alpha mode
is the base resting form. The first picture below is the "beta mode" that the ship used in
it's second mission to the Zargonias in the Smektar-Three universe. (Insert

The ship’s main drive was a symbolic
transaction system of the 81st generation.
It was capable of travel to and through any universe up to Type V,
alternate realities of up to Type-Iota-Prime, temporal movement from the
Big-Bang to the Big-Crunch (or Heat-Death) in any universe, and near
instantaneous space travel within any universe.
The ship transcended through e^pi^(i*2.48828) alternate universes in less
than a pico-second. This is the
fastest recorded speed for any symbolic transaction type ship, and badly
strained the drive system requiring over 2 seconds of recovery and regeneration

The ship could hold any number of other
beings of any physiological description for any desired missions.
The crew and passengers were stored as information matrices within the
ship’s transfinite bounded manifold, in a process distantly related to the
ancient transporter. The passengers
and crew could reconfigure their experience of the internal layout and time
frame of the ship as needed for any particular mission.
They could rematerialize in any environment required by the mission
without fear of harm from the environment.
The crew consisted of a captain.
The initial captain was a gestalt entity of four sentient beings from the
Milky Way Galaxy: a Human from the
Alpha Quadrant, an Mechanoid from the Beta Quadrant, a Great Link Member from
the Gamma Quadrant, and a Metaphasic Entity from the Delta Quadrant.
The crew was chosen for their ability to smoothly interface with each
other and with the ship’s Wisdom Concept System.
Below is the captain in the Central Mission Awareness Node,
immediately after launch deciding on the appropriate translation vector to the Ovaltine Universe. The node is the distant
evolutionary descendent of the hopelessly limited
command bridge on ancient starships. The display in the center of the
group is created by the Wisdom Concept System. (Insert

In the three pictures below you can
see the crew in their normal duties. First, the Mechanoid captain
adjusting the salient ignition totient elements of the symbolic transaction
system drive before launch. Second, the Great Link captain achieving
transcendental union with the Wisdom Concept System as it copies the entire
Universal Sentient Federation database. Third, the Metaphasic Entity
captain performing a critical maintenance activity that cannot be described in
normal language (Insert

Below is the Human captain in
negotiations with the Toxic Xenomorphs of Invidia Prime. (Insert
Memory Implant 32lkklweif9slaisod32nkkw for details) You can see the Ambassadorial-Gamma mode as the Wisdom
Concept System unerringly translates between the parties. The success of
the negotiation added the largest amount of information to the Universal Sentient Federation up to that time, the
universal database increased by almost 0.00002938829%. (Insert

Because violence was entirely abolished
in the 250th century throughout the Universe, the ship was not
designed with weapons or shields. However,
the ship was a critical factor in the conflict with B-Concept-Entities from the
Blue-Dimension. These beings were
mimetic beings that invaded the thought processes of a wide variety of life
forms in our Universe. (Insert

The ship withstood influx negative gravity energies of over 10^10^8
ergs, and generated a beam of coherent nullions of 10^10^150 ergs creating an infinite
number of new universes that trapped these beings permanently.
The Enterprise Aleph Null is entirely
specified by the Engineering Meta-Language Level Three statement:
ENt(giga-find^e)*forth-going(38843)-Infinimax(quaork)+Aptanotic = 0.
It was decommissioned in the Universal
It was superseded by the Enterprise
Aleph One, a ship that could invest an entire space time manifold using the
quantum-foam-viral method. The Aleph
One’s specifications cannot be described in any language less complex than
Meta-Language Level Five. (Insert
