Subject:
Compiled Starship and Technology Report

As requested, selected starship and technology intelligence reports transferred from the Central Records Archive located at Starfleet Intelligence headquarters. Per regulations all information in this document is considered classified and is not to be shared with individuals without prior clearance.

You may now use this PADD to review intelligence information obtained from the major powers of the galaxy translated into standard Federation English for your convenience. To review, click the button at the top of your PADD. Further database structure and usage information can be found in the database guide.

Please select the starship intelligence report of your choice. It should be noted that because of the nature of intelligence gathering, only a limited amount of information may have been obtained due to an increase in security or the reassignment or untimely death of one or more undercover agents. However Star Fleet Intelligence is committed to gather the most complete intelligence possible, no matter the cost.

Star Trek Intelligence is proud to announce a brand new web site, ST-I Wiki. ST-I Wiki is the companion wiki to Star Trek Intelligence that will allow visitors to freely edit any of the information found on ST-I, or add additional information that has not been included on the main site, without the need to editor review. As with ST-I, ST-I Wiki will remained focused on creating the most in depth source for Star Trek starships and technology; itís our hope that the two web sites will share the best and most accurate information between them.

Why is ST-I Wiki being created?
Over the years visitors like you have asked for many changes to the information contained on ST-I. One of the most common requests is to add non-cannon starships or split refit classes. ST-I Wiki should give visitors a free hand to create the web pages they want to see along with adding numerous small details not covered in ST-Iís briefing format. Finally this should improve the overall responsiveness to user submissions to ST-I and eliminate lengthy delays.

We hope you enjoy this new resource from ST-I.

Notes: The Excelsior class was originally designed as a test bed for Starfleet's first experimental transwarp drive. Having been sabotaged in the engines' first transwarp test and having failed in all subsequent attempts, the Excelsior prototype was refitted with a conventional warp drive. As full production started on the Excelsior class, the ship became the mainstay of the fleet in the late 23rd and early 24th centuries, replacing the older Constitution class as the flagship class. The Excelsior class remains in service today, more then 60 years after if was first launched, through a program of continuous enhancements to the ships systems, being the personal flagship of choice for many admirals. The Excelsior class has two major refit variants, the Enterprise-B type and the Lakota type. The Enterprise-B type, commissioned in the late 23rd century, has upgraded sensor and science systems. The Lakota type, commissioned in 2372 right before the outbreak of the Dominion war, brought the weapon and defensive systems up to standard with the Defiant and Sovereign classes.

The navigational deflector is designed to sweep dangerous particles, ranging in size from single atoms of hydrogen to small asteroids, from the path of a starship while traveling at relativistic velocities or warp speed. Without the navigation deflector even the smallest practical could possess large amounts of energy causing extreme damage to a ship ’s hull integrity if a collision were to take place.

The navigation deflector is normally mounted on the front of the secondary hull on Federation starships in a large dish shape depression. The deflector system consists of redundant graviton polarity generators that supply subspace field distor tion amplifiers. Mounted directly behind the deflector are the long range sensors that are used in conjunction with the deflector to scan for objects along the ships flight path.

The navigational deflector operates using two main components. In the first component the deflector emits a series of static low powered shields extending up to two kilometers in front of the ship. These deflector shields are designed deflect single atoms and other small particles from the ship’s path. The second component consists of a high powered deflector beam that is controlled by the long range sensors th at is used to deflect any large objects from the ship’s path.

The deflector system has also been known to be modified to emit high powered tractor beams or as a high energy weapon.
