Class Description

During the near 30 year long design process for the Sovereign Project several prototype hulls fitted with the prototype technologies were designed and mostly all were scrapped. The Ronin was one of these prototype hulls.

Constructed in 2365 the Ronin virtually ran out of gas whilst conducting its first test flight. The power required to maintain readiness of all weapons systems, enhanced warp core and test-bed technology was simply too much for vessel in its design to regulate. Virtually every second EPS conduit exploded. It was then determined a project failure and the sovereign project moved concentration towards the other hulls in production.

In the year 2376, after remaining for 12 years in mothballs; two Starfleet officers spotted the Ronin amid the Utopia Planitia junkyard. Captain Isaac Smith of Starfleet Strategic Operations, and Lieutenant Curtis Diehl a Starfleet security officer. It was noted that Curtis remarked upon seeing the Ronin's hull, "I want to make love to that ship." And make love to it they did, in a manner of speaking. Within 3 months the two officers had successfully gained approval for managing refitting the Ronin ready for active duty. Isaac Smith pulled as many strings as possible in selecting people to be on the refit team and for pooling resources. Curtis Diehl proved to be vital in the project for redesigning the weapons systems to reduce power consumption.

After technicalities and refit blueprints were printed, the refit team found they had more room to play with. With the successful run of the Sovereign class for several years, most of the technology had been streamlined in size and productivity since 2365.

Many basic luxuries were extended, every crew quarters was increased in size. The shuttle bay was increased in volume. An Officers' Mess and Crew Lounge were incorporated. A good portion of deck Eight was dedicated to hydroponics. Weapons systems were gutted and refitted or replaced completely within original casing, example - phaser lance's replaced with pulse phaser cannons and nacelle mounted Quantum Torpedo tubes re-purposed to be phaser arrays.

A secure Operations and War Room facility was made below the structural arm holding the weapons pod on deck 1. Office’s included in the war room area are intelligence and StratOps dedicated. The War Room itself can function as a command and intelligence centre with networking capability as well as a secondary command and control centre for the Starship.

When the refit officially began the ship was literally gutted inside and out. Due to the low priority of the project in starfleet's mind, the project was rather undermanned and became time consuming. This negative became a positive when the ship was finished in late 2379. Having been gutted and rebuilt by far less people than normal the ship seemed to be maintainable by a minimal crew complement.

In the end, due to the Ronin's base structure the vessel was still weaker than the Sovereign's which were also being refitted at the time. However, the Ronin is still heavily armed for a Starfleet vessel and agile. The Ronin hosts a thin layer of ablative armour and self-sustainability within a very comfortable environment. Nearly an entire deck is dedicated to crew recreation. Hence the vessel has been marked as a possible long ranged explorer and heavy cruiser. Ever since the Ronin's successful re-launch, the class under the new redesign is being put into production.
