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.

The Bussard collectors, also known as Bussard ramscoops, are the primary backup fuel replenishment system on board Federation starships when deuterium tanker resupply is not an option, the starship is out of resupply range, or the starship is in distress.

The Bussard collectors are mounted on the front of the warp nacelles on all Federation ships. The collectors are designed to trap the small amounts of free interstellar hydrogen to replenish the ships diminishing reserves of deuterium, thus staving off disaster until proper resupply can be accomp lished. Even though the density in interstellar matter is very low, approximately one atom per cubic centimeter, traveling at warp velocities can produce sizable quantities of deuterium. The Bussard collectors are also designed to work in conjunction with the navigational deflectors which normal ly sweep away small particles in the path of the ship such as deuterium atoms.

The collectors work by emitting an ionizing radiation beam that changes the charge of the surrounding neutral gas; at warp velocities this beam can be emitted into subspace so it propagates out in front of the ship. The Bussard collectors also emit a shaped magnetic field around the ship to funnel the now charged gas into the collectors. Finally the collectors separate the useable fuel from the low grade matter, the deuterium is then transferred to the deuterium storage tanks for use by the warp engines.

Other nonconventional uses of the Bussard collectors have included emitting matter streams into space and as a defensive weapon against attacking ships.
