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 NX prototype class was created to test the first Earth Warp 3 engine, the immediate predecessor to the Warp 5 engine.
In 2143 the NX Alpha was destroyed shortly after it reached warp 2.2; a couple days later the NX beta broke warp 2.5. Eight
months later the NX Delta broke warp 3 completing the goal of the program. The NX proto type shares a direct design lineage with
Earth's first warp ship, the Phoenix, with the fold out nacelles replaced with solid pylons
The main computer core is the primary computer processing facility on board any Federation starship or space station. The computer core is designed to run every system onboard a start ship from weapons to propulsion systems. The computer core and its functionality can be access by the crew of a starship through the Library Computer Access and Retrieval System, or LCARS, which provides verbal and keypad interfaces.
Standard Federation computer system design includes three fully redundant computer cores on board most Starfleet starships. These cores are cylindrical in shape and may be as large as ten decks depending on the size of the starship. Two main computer cores are normally placed in the primary hull that are 100% redundant, if either core fails the other core can assume the full load of computer processing with no interruption. A third core normally placed in the stardrive hull that serves as a back up to the first two cores and controls the stardrive section when separated from the primary hull. In the event of a failure of any of the cores, each core it able to control all primary systems onboard the starship.
Each core has a series of subspace field generators, similar to those in the warp engines, which create a warp field around the computer core. This field allows the core to operate at faster than light processing speeds. On larger Starfleet vessels like the Galaxy class, computer processing power is provided by FTL nanoprocessor units distributed throughout each level of the core. Long-term and short-term computer storage memory is composed of 2,048 memory modules each composed of 144 isolinear chips. This storage can be accessed at a rate of 4,600 kiloquads/sec and has a total storage capacity of 630,000 kiloquads. Smaller Starfleet ships may have smaller main cores and less processing power and storage. Each core is tied to the ships optical data processing network.
Computer processing power is supplemented by quadritronic optical subprocessors distributed throughout the ship. These subprocessors do not operate at FTL speeds but improve the response time of the main computer system and are primarily intended to monitor the operating status of the ships systems. The subprocessors also provide redundancy to the main computer cores in case of core failures.
