New Orleans Class Frigate Specifications






OVERVIEW: Soon after the development of the Galaxy and Nebula-class starships, Starfleet saw the new design style as innovative, but requiring large amounts of resources for each of the ships to be constructed. Starfleet Command issued directives to shipyards across the Federation to design and produce starships for various mission profiles using the same design elements of their newest vessels, but keeping the crew sizes smaller than the Galaxy and Nebula classes. The New Orleans-class heavy frigate was the first design submitted for approval by the San Francisco Fleet Yards. This ship was considerably more compact than most vessels in service at the time, and its non-modular primary and secondary hulls made construction easier and took nearly quarter the time to build compared to a Nebula class. The New Orleans class has begun to replace Miranda-class vessels in active service, but construction rates imply that this full change over won’t finish until 2377.

CAPABILITIES: The New Orleans class is primarily assigned to patrol and planetary survey missions, similar to the Miranda class. The design has two main features that make it highly desired for these missions: a mission adaptable pod on its ventral secondary hull, and two interlinked subspace and EM sensor strips down the side of its secondary hull and along its warp nacelles. The mission pod closely resembles the two photon torpedo / probe launch systems on its dorsal primary hull, but It contains its own isolinear computer core and as many planetary sensors as a Galaxy-class ship typically carries. In addition, this planetary survey pod contains six fully automated remote sample probes that can enter a planet’s atmosphere and return biological and geological samples to isolation chambers that are physically separate from the rest of the vessel, making contamination highly unlikely. The two subspace sensor arrays along the hull and the warp nacelles allow long-range and highly detailed sensor scans on star systems dozens of parsecs away through interferometry. These same sensor networks allow the New Orleans class the ability to have a detailed map of subspace fluctuations and turbulence around it, allowing its warp coils to tweak power output in such a way that it mimics the variable warp geometry of an Intrepid-class starship without the adjustable-pitch warp pylons.

Specifications Determined by Mission Pod Type

Mission Pods

Most Star Fleet vessels are designed to handle a wide range of mission types. While this allows those vessels to handle most situations encountered in the field it is not feasible to equip every ship to handle every situation. The inclusion of mission pods into the designs of several ship classes has allowed those ship classes to respond to a wide range of mission than would be normally possible.

While there are many types of mission pods available the pods listed below are examples of the most often used pods.

Mission Pod Types

Fabrication: Meant to be used to assist with large scale construction or repair missions the fabrication pod is equipped with industrial replicators, and machining facilities to fabricate the required parts out of preexisting materials. These pods are also equipped with tanks containing consumables for the industrial replicators and work bee storage.

Sensor: Equipped with lateral and long range sensors the sensor pod works to supplement the ships standard sensors. The sensor pods can be equipped with specialty sensor suites to study phenomenon not normally encountered by Starfleet vessels. This pod is often equipped with supplemental computer systems to handle the increased sensor data.

Tactical: The tactical pod is used to increase the offensive capabilities of the ship. Housing extra torpedo tubes and storage for extra torpedoes along with supplemental Phaser strips. The pods can also be equipped with extra shielding systems to increase the defensive capabilities of the ship equipped with the pod.

Medical: Equipped with extended medical facilities on par with the facilities located at a Star base the medical pod allows the ship to handle extreme medical emergency situations. The Medical pod is equipped with dedicated transporters, operating rooms, medical labs, and wards to house the patients as they recover.

Auxiliary Craft




Type:  Medium short-range sublight shuttle.
Accommodation:  Two; pilot and system manager.
Power Plant:  Two 750 millicochrane impulse driver engines, four RCS thrusters, four sarium krellide storage cells.
Dimensions:  Length, 4.8 m; beam, 2.4 m; height 1.6 m.
Mass:  1.25 metric tones.
Performance:  Maximum delta-v, 12,250 m/sec.
Armament:  Two Type-IV phaser emitters.

Like the Type-15, the Type-16 Shuttlepod is a two person craft primarily used for short-ranged transportations of personnel and cargo, as well as for extravehicular inspections of Federation starships, stations and associated facilities.  Lacking the ability to obtain warp speeds, the Type-16 is a poor candidate for even interplanetary travel, and is traditionally used as a means of transport between objects only a few kilometers apart.  The craft is capable of atmospheric flight, allowing for routine flights between orbiting craft or stations and planetside facilities, and its cargo capacity is slightly higher then that of the Type-15.  Ships of this type are stationed aboard various starship classes and stations, both spaceborne and planetside.




Type:  Light long-range warp shuttle.
Accommodation:  Two flight crew, six passengers.
Power Plant:  One 150 cochrane warp engine, two 750 millicochrane impulse engines, four RCS thrusters.
Dimensions:  Length, 6.2 m; beam, 4.5 m; height 2.8 m.
Mass:  3.47 metric tones.
Performance:  Warp 4.
Armament:  Two Type-V phaser emitters.

Based upon the frame of the Type-6, the Type-8 Shuttlecraft is the most capable follow-up in the realm of personnel shuttles.  Only slightly larger, the Type-8 is equipped with a medium-range transporter and has the ability to travel within a planet’s atmosphere.  With a large cargo area that can also seat six passengers, the shuttle is a capable transport craft.  Slowly replacing its elder parent craft, the Type-8 is now seeing rapid deployment on all medium to large starships, as well as to Starbases and stations throughout the Federation.




Type:  Medium long-range warp shuttle.
Accommodation:  Two flight crew, two passengers.
Power Plant:  One 400 cochrane warp engine, two 800 millicochrane impulse engines, four RCS thrusters.
Dimensions:  Length, 8.5 m; beam, 4.61 m; height 2.67 m.
Mass:  2.61 metric tones.
Performance:  Warp 6.
Armament:  Two Type-VI phaser emitters.

The Type-9 Personnel Shuttle is a long-range craft capable of traveling at high warp for extended periods of time due to new advances in variable geometry warp physics.  Making its debut just before the launch of the Intrepid-class, this shuttle type is ideal for scouting and recon missions, but is well suited to perform many multi-mission tasks.  Equipped with powerful Type-VI phaser emitters, the shuttle is designed to hold its own ground for a longer period of time.  Comfortable seating for four and moderate cargo space is still achieved without sacrificing speed and maneuverability.  As is standard by the 2360’s, the shuttle is equipped with a medium-range transporter and is capable of traveling through a planet’s atmosphere.  With its ability to travel at high-warp speeds, the Type-9 has been equipped with a more pronounced deflector dish that houses a compact long-range sensor that further helps it in its role as a scout.  The Type-9 is now being deployed throughout the fleet and is especially aiding deep-space exploratory ships with its impressive abilities.



9.2.7 WORK BEE


Type:  Utility craft.
Accommodation:  One operator.
Power Plant:  One microfusion reactor, four RCS thrusters.
Dimensions:  Length, 4.11 m; beam, 1.92 m; height 1.90 m.
Mass:  1.68 metric tones.
Performance:  Maximum delta-v, 4,000 m/sec.
Armament:  None

The Work Bee is a capable stand-alone craft used for inspection of spaceborne hardware, repairs, assembly, and other activates requiring remote manipulators.  The fully pressurized craft has changed little in design during the past 150 years, although periodic updates to the internal systems are done routinely.  Onboard fuel cells and microfusion generators can keep the craft operational for 76.4 hours, and the life-support systems can provide breathable air, drinking water and cooling for the pilot for as long as fifteen hours.  If the pilot is wearing a pressure suit or SEWG, the craft allows for the operator to exit while conducting operations.  Entrance and exit is provided by the forward window, which lifts vertically to allow the pilot to come and go.

A pair of robotic manipulator arms is folded beneath the main housing, and allows for work to be done through pilot-operated controls.  In addition, the Work Bee is capable of handling a cargo attachment that makes it ideal for transferring cargo around large Starbase and spaceborne construction facilities.  The cargo attachment features additional microfusion engines for supporting the increased mass.

One of the newest Starbasees to enter service in the Federation DS 3-9 (pronounced Three Nine) has only been operational for a little over two years. It is truly on the frontier and it's nearest support is Starbase 173 some 18 light years away.

DS 3-9 is located on the very fringe of Federation space to galactic east, beyond the mass of both the Klingon Empire and the Romulan Star Empire, at the entrance to what is called The Norse Corridor a sector of space dominated by the Bifrost Nebula, first mapped nearly a half century ago by the eccentric Scientist-explorer Hansi Magnuson. (See separate entry on The Norse Corridor). DS 3-9's mission is to support the exploration and protection of federation interests in the area.

The base is commanded by Captain Zhao Gui


Five Starfleet Vessels are assigned to DS 3-9 (See below)

Aurora Class Star Base Description


With the Earth Stardock almost completed, Starfleet began to realized a significant problem: the Spacedock-class was costly to build, in resources and time. If Starfleet was going to continue production of these, they had better find more resources. The answer was reached, when the R&D teams proposed the Aurora-class. This starbase, though smaller then the Stardock, would be able to support as many ships, and provide a solid defense for a planet, system or sector, while carrying out all operations starbases usually carry out.

Because of the size of the station, which was almost half that of their Spacedock-class counterparts, the interior space of the starbase was doubled by adding more doors, and also larger inner towers for placement of the necessary facilities. This way, it could be built faster, yet have the same abilities of the Spacedocks.

One of the other improvements of the Aurora-class was an outer ring, which held some smaller shuttle bays, and pads, and also held residential areas. The ring area, later dubbed the "Habitat Ring" also had infirmaries, and recreational facilities such as gymnasiums, dojos, and replimats. Also, some scientific facilities where placed here as well. This design would again allow for more space inside the starship bay.

The main section of the starbase, held the Starfleet facilities, and even more residential areas. Mostly, the inner station remained a spaceport, with a mall, flight control "towers", and observation lounges. In all, the station was a success. Starbase 102 was the first. By the time these where done however, Starfleet had gathered enough resources to continue production of the Spacedock-class. The Aurora was still used, though more were only built in few numbers, since it lacks the same tactical and logistical abilities that the Spacedock-class possesses.

When the Federation came under a rapid expansion, these stations were again looked at. While small and not able to house larger ships internally, the Aurora-class still had use as a front-line station where smaller ships could be produced and launched. Other advancements over the years, and the addition of new technologies, kept the design current, but underused. Eventually, a larger variant was designed, but this venerable design has withstood criticisms of being too small, but still showing that its design philosophy of smaller, yet capable is still going strong, almost 100 years after its first roll-out.

The Sagan-subclass was a Federation class V research vessel starship, a variation of the Oberth-class , in Starfleet service in the 24th century. These vessels were produced until the mid 24th century.

The Sagan vessels crewed 80, with space to carry 10 mission specialists. Additionally, the Sagan could carry 5,000 metric tons of cargo, rated at 100 SCU (standard cargo units). Unloaded, the Sagan vessels weighed 59,335 metric tons and measured 180 meters in length, 105 meters in width and 62 meters in height.

The Sagan computers were of the M-1 type, and the vessels were loaded with two standard (6 person) personnel transporters, five 12 person transporters and four cargo transport stages (2 of them small scale, 2 of them large scale). There were also 4 Federation shuttlecraft standard to these vessels' shuttlebays. These vessels were designed for deep-space scientific research, intended to represent an improvement over the earlier Gagarin-subclass series of Oberth research scouts, with better defenses and power levels. The Sagan ships were equipped to perform studies on various subjects, such as planetary cartography and geology, biological surveys, and studies of astronomy.

The Sagan warp engines were FWB-2 type, rated to cruise at warp factor 8 and max out at warp factor 9 (old scale measurement). The impulse engines were of the FIB-3 type, and Sagan had 3 FH-8 phaser emitters, in three phaser banks, with arcs of fire to fore and aft as well as port and starboard. The vessels had no launcher weapons, but were defended by FSF model deflector shields.
