Class Information

Antares class aft view

The Antares class freighters are civilian cargo vessels that are currently in operation. These ships are ruggedly and economically designed which has led to ships of this class being observed in operation not only within Federation space but beyond with several non-federation world operating cargo services with one or more Antares class ship in the fleet. These ships are also used by private individuals working as freelance cargo haulers.

Ships of the Antares class all have the same angular, box like appearance on the outside but many of the interior spaces, such as the bridge can vary greatly depending on the needs of the vessel's owner. One of the more notable design features of ships of this class is its lack of warp nacelles. The warp coils that would normally be housed within the nacelles are housed within the upper section of the ships hull with a set of coils located on the port and starboard section of deck one. This arrangement allow for a smaller warp field adding to the ships efficiency.

The Antares class is equipped with landing gear allowing these ships to land and take off from a planets surface. Meaning that planets that do not have any form of orbital cargo facility can still be served by ships of the Antares class. It should be noted that to maximize the cargo capacity of the Antares class these ships are not equipped with shuttles or shuttle bay.

The first ship of this class was commissioned in 2328 at the Luna ship yards after a successful test flight. Since then these ships have proven to be dependable ships that are easy to operate resulting in ships of this class being in operation for the last sixty years with the expectation of seeing ships of this class to continue to operate for at least another sixty years.

  • The Antares Class Cargo vessels are civilian ships used throughout Federations space. While the exterior appearance of these ships appears the same the interior could look different from ship to ship. Depending on the needs of the owners of each ship.
  • Ships of the Antares class are capable of making planetary landings.
