Select 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 6.0 ... Online

Welcome to the new and improved Star Trek Intelligence 6.0. I apologize for the long neglect of the site, after the 'reported' death of Star Trek. Though with new life, I though it might might be time to also bring the old site back to life for the enjoyment of all.

As a first step, I've updated most of the interface to a larger format. Secondly, I've replaced all of the starship images with newer higher resolution versions. In the coming months I hope to add more content from Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, and the Star Trek: Kelvin timeline. Along with refreshing the existing database and descriptions.

Sincerely, Defiant.

Notes: The Negh'var is the Klingon Empire's newest ship design and flagship class, they are also the most powerful ships ever produced by the Klingon Empire. The Negh'var is equipped with 26 ship mounted disruptors and one large forward mounted disruptor. The Negh'var can also carry 2500 troops and crew. Because of its mass and heavy armament, the Negh'var loses the high maneuverability of other Klingon ships. There can be only one purpose for this weapons platform, to take down planetary defenses and space station shields followed by the ability to transport thousands of Klingon warriors into battle.

Impulse engines are the main form of sub-light propulsion on board Federation starships. Impulse drive is mainly used within solar systems or areas of space where warp drive is no available. Normal operation of the impulse engines will propel a Federation starship at up to speeds of 0.25c. Depending on the size and number of impulse engines available, ships such as the Galaxy class, can obtain emergency speeds up to 0.75c when required from the impulse engines. The impulse engine reactors are also the main source of power for the ships EPS power systems.

Onboard Federation starships there is normally one main impulse drive mounted on the rear of the secondary hull. This drive is used for the primary propulsion of the ship during standard operation. On larger Federation starships there may secondary impulse engines mounted on the primary hull to provide additional propulsion for the ship.

The impulse engines are composed of four main parts. The first part of the engine is one or more fusion reaction chambers. These reaction chambers are supplied deuterium from the ships primary storage tanks; here it undergoes a fusion reaction producing high energy plasma. The plasma is directed out of the chamber into the accelerator/generator stage. During times when the impulse engines are not being used to propel the ship the output of the reaction chamber are directed into the ships EPS system. When being used to propel the ship the plasma is accelerated and passed into the driver coil assembly. The driver coils are similar to those found in the ship’s warp engines; these coils have the effect of reducing the ships apparent mass allowing the reaction to drive the ship. After leaving the driver coils the plasma is sent though the v ector exhaust ports, driving the ship forward.

Prolonged use of the impulse engines are not recommended due to the effects of special relativity, especially at speeds higher than 0.25c.
