Intrepid Class

Max speed: warp factor 9.975
decks: 15
crew: 141

An experimental scout vessel, using the latest in Federation technology, from new space-friendly overdrive warp core to an Emergency Medical Hologram, from the latest in transporters to Bio-Neural circuitry, the USS Voyager is truly a remarquable ship. Built originally for shorter missions, the Voyager is now lost in the Delta Quadrant, 70 years away from Earth. Consequently, the crew has had to conserve resources as much as possible. The Voyager was on a mission to capture Maquis terrorists who had escaped into the Badlands, an area of the galaxy characterised by intense plasma storms. Both ships were 'abducted' by the Caretaker, a being from another galaxy. The crews of both ships were merged with the Maquis crew supplementing the dead crew members on Voyager, when the Maquis ship was destroyed by her captain, Chakotay, to save Voyager. The long journey home of the USS Voyager, under the command of Captain Catherine Janeway is the subject of the current television series Star Trek: Voyager.

Defiant Class

Originally built as a detterent to the Borg, the USS Defiant was brought to Deep Space 9 by then Commander Sisko to fight the Dominion and its Jem'Hadar troops. It was built under Sisko's watchfull eye at the Utopia Planitia plants, the same shipyard which produced the Enterprise-D. Officially classified as an escort, the Defiant is actually a battlecruiser. Its small size hides its true power. It is armed with standard phasers as well as a new type of phaser, which fires in pulses, and quantum torpedoes. The USS Defiant is also the first Federation starship to 'officially' use a cloaking device (the Pegasus was eqquiped with an illegal Federation cloaking and phasing device. It was briefly installed aboard the Enterprise-D TNG "Pegasus". Also the origianl Enterprise, while under the command of the legendary Captain James T. Kirk, stole a Romulan cloaking device from three Romulan ships which had surrounded the Enterprise in Romulan space TOS "The Enterprise Incident".) After its first year stationed at DS9, the Defiant was covered in ablative armor to better protect it from Jem'Hadar weapon systems which seem to penetrate Federation shileds rather easily. The Defiant is, at least, the second ship to bear that name. The first USS Defiant was one of the original Constitution class starships. It was lost to a parallel universe in the episode of the original Star Trek series, entitled The Web of the Tholians, which was also the first time the Tholians were encountered. The USS Defiant assigned to Space Station Deep Space 9, under the command of Captain Sisko, is frequently shown on the current television series Star Trek: Deep Space 9. It has been on DS9 since the beginning of the third season, first seen in the season opener entitled The Search. According to some rumors, the USS Defiant will be destroyed or critically damaged in the upcoming movie, Star Trek: First Contact, while defending Earth from a Borg attack.Her crew will be saved by the USS Enterprise-E

Miranda Class

The USS Reliant (NCC-1864) was a Federation Miranda-class, class X cruiser starship in service to Starfleet in the 23rd century. The Reliant was originally built as a Anton-subclass research cruiser. On reference stardate 2/1410, the Reliant was ordered to the Morena shipyards for a refit to Mk IV Anton specifications. While the ship was being dismantled for the engine refit, Starfleet Command decided to mount a different engine configuration unto the Reliant than was included on other Mk IV's. Due to this change, several external design changes had to be made, and Starfleet decided to make the Reliant the prototype of a new subclass: the Reliant-subclass. Following the extensive refit, the Reliant reentered service on stardate 2/1509. (TOS reference: Federation Ship Recognition Manual) By the late 2270s, the Reliant was under the command of Captain Clark Terrell. In 2281, the Reliant proceeded to the planet Halka after learning that they had been attacked by the Orions. Lt. Commander Pavel Chekov led a landing party to the surface and learned that a local boy named Lojur took up arms against the Orions, and was subsequently banned from his village by the Elders. Chekov took pity on the boy and beamed him aboard the Reliant. (TLE novel: The Sundered) In 2284, the Reliant was detached from active service and assigned to assist Dr. Carol Marcus and her Project Genesis team find a suitable uninhabited planet for testing. In 2285, Terrell and Chekov beamed down to a planet they believed to be Ceti Alpha VI. When they discovered Khan Noonien Singh and his followers, they discovered that they were, in fact, on Ceti Alpha V, and that Ceti Alpha VI had been destroyed. Using Terrell and Chekov, Khan took control of the Reliant and marooned the crew on Ceti Alpha V. After engaging the USS Enterprise and inflicting heavy damage, Khan took the Reliant to the Regula 1 Space Laboratory where he captured the Genesis Device. A cat-and-mouse game with the Enterprise in the Mutara Nebula led to the Reliant being crippled. At a distance of +4,000 kilometers, Enterprise warped out-as Reliant was ultimately destroyed by Khan's detonation of the Genesis Device inside the nebula. (TOS novelization: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) Following Khan's defeat, the Enterprise traveled to Ceti Alpha VI and recovered the surviving members of the Reliant's crew. From there they were safely transported to Starbase 12. (TOS comic: "The Wormhole Connection")

Nebula Class

The USS Kelvin (NCC-0514) was a 23rd century Federation starship of an unspecified class that was in service during the 2230s. In 2233, the Kelvin was under the command of Captain Richard Robau; his first officer was Lieutenant George Kirk. Kirk's wife, Winona, was also aboard the ship at that time while she was pregnant with their son, James T. Kirk. The Kelvin had a single ventral warp nacelle housing the ship's warp drive engine. Its shipboard weaponry included phaser cannons which could fire bolts of highly concentrated energy and phaser emitters which fired less powerful beams. The shuttlebay was located in the aft section of the upper pylon. On stardate 2233.04, the Kelvin was on a mission 75,000 kilometers from the Federation-Klingon border when it encountered a black hole created in 2387 by the detonation of a red matter device, subsequently creating an alternate reality. Initially the Kelvin believed that this phenomenon was of Klingon origin, although that theory was later dismissed. The time of the encounter also marked the birth of George Kirk's son, to whom his wife Winona was on the verge of giving birth. As the Kelvin was observing the black hole, an unidentified vessel, the Narada, a 24th century Romulan mining vessel commanded by Captain Nero, emerged from the future. When the Narada discovered the Kelvin, it quickly charged its weapons, and the Kelvin went to red alert and began fighting off torpedoes launched from the Romulan vessel. The first hit took out the warp drive and reduced main power to 38%. The second torpedo disabled Kelvin's atmospheric stabilization and collapsed its shields. The Kelvin was easily overcome, but the attack was halted by Nero's first officer Ayel, who requested that Captain Robau come aboard his vessel to discuss terms of a cease fire. Robau obliged the request and transferred to the Narada via shuttlecraft, leaving George Kirk in command. Robau's final orders to Kirk were to evacuate the ship using all available shuttlecraft, and to set the Kelvin on a collision course with the Narada, using the autopilot. During the meeting on the Narada, Robau was killed by Nero. Tracking Robau's lifesigns, the Kelvin crew became aware of Robau's execution instantly. George Kirk immediately ordered evasive action and the firing of all weapons, and the Kelvin began taking fire from the Narada. Knowing that the Kelvin would be no match for the onslaught of missiles from the Romulan ship, Kirk ordered General Order 13: the evacuation of the ship. Medical Shuttle 37 flees the KelvinOnce all shuttlecraft had been launched, Kirk used the Kelvin to cover their escape. With no other options left, he plotted a collision course, intending to use the ship's autopilot to ram the Narada. Kirk was, however, forced to remain on the Kelvin, rather than join his wife aboard Medical Shuttle 37, when it was discovered that the Narada had destroyed the Kelvin's autopilot function, leaving him to pilot the ship manually. The Kelvin was destroyed, but Kirk's sacrifice ensured the survival of the escaping shuttles. While Kirk only served as captain of the Kelvin for a mere twelve minutes, his sacrifice saved the lives of some 800 people, including those of his wife and new-born son. After the Kelvin's destruction, Christopher Pike wrote a dissertation on the Kelvin, and the actions of its commanding officer at the time of its destruction, George Kirk. Pike later made reference to this dissertation and his knowledge of George Kirk to Kirk's son, daring him to do better than his father and enlist in Starfleet (Star Trek).
