Star Trek Starship and
Starfleet Intelligence Central Records Archive (SICRA)
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 Defiant class is Starfleet's first true warship, though officially designated as an escort class. The Defiant
design project was started after the initial Borg invasion, which left the Federation feeling vulnerable to future attack, on
an extremely accelerated schedule. Designed from the ground up as an extremely maneuverable weapons platform featuring quantum
torpedoes and rapid fire pulse phasers, the Defiant class is Starfleet's premier class. As thoughts of the Borg diminished,
the Defiant program was scraped after the ship proved to have excessive power and weapons problems. With the coming of the
Dominion threat the U.S.S Defiant was stationed at DS9 to hold the Dominion at bay until reinforcement could arrive.
The warp core and antimatter pods are the most dangerous objects carried by a starship. The warp core ejection system is designed to prevent the starship from being destroyed if the core takes damage that compromises its structural or safety systems.
When the command crew or the main computer automatically orders the warp core to be ejected all fuel supplies are automatically cut off from the warp core. A series of force fields is then established to isolate the core for the rest of the ship. The hull plating on the bottom of the secondary hull is then detached followed by the warp core being ejected by explosive charges; the antimatter pods may also be ejected. In combat situations the core can be remote detonated when the ship is clear from the blast wave. If the core is salvageable the ship can return when the core has stabilized.
Ejecting the warp core will leave the ship without warp capability possibly thousands of light years from help and leave the starship extremely vulnerable to attack.
