The Class J Cargo Ships were civilian cargo vessels operated under the authority of the Earth Cargo Service The first of the Class Js were put into service in the late 2090's.Each ship's name was prefixed with E.C.S.The ships of the J class consisted of two sections, the forward Command Section and the aft Cargo Section.Unlike the Class Y cargo ships which were a solid unit the Class Js were capable of detaching the forward command section from the cargo section.
The forward Command Section housed the bridge, crew quarters, and ship systems. The Command section also housed the ships mess hall which served as the central meeting area for the crew during their off time. The lower decks of the command section housed the ships systems such as life support, Impulse and Warp propulsion.
The aft Cargo Section housed the central access corridor and the cargo modules. Each of the cargo modules were labeled with a numeric designation painted on the outside of the ships hull. Like the command section each individual cargo module could be disengaged from the rest of the ship should the need arise to jettison any of the modules.
The Class Js were able to maintain a cruising speed of warp 1.5 and could achieve and maintain a top speed of warp 2 even when fully loaded. Both the warp and impulse engines were housed in twin nacelle like pods slung under the forward Command Section with one pod on the port side and the other on the Starboard side of the ships hull.
The Class J Cargo Ships were equip ed with twin plasma cannons with one mounted to the dorsal surface of the hull of the cargo section and the other mounted to the ventral sufferance of hull of the cargo section. These ships were also equipped with hull polarization systems to provide an extra measure of protection to the ship.
