Class Description

Class Design Brief

The USS Winchester on deep space patrol

The Engle Class is composed of a saucer shaped hull. There is an expanded section along the aft end of the hulls ventral section that houses the ships four shuttle bays and impulse engines. The shuttle bays are arranged with two of the bays facing forward and two facing aft. This class is equipped with twin warp nacelles. Each nacelle is held directly to the side of the hull by two nacelle pylons. The ships primary diflector dish is located a the forward most section of the hull in a location similar to ships of the NX Class from Earth's early days of space exploration.

As a Heavy Cruiser ships of the Engle Class are expected to undertake a wide verity of missions primarily missions of exploration and research. To accomplish such missions the Engle Class is equipped with a full complement of research facilities. These are divided between Science,medical, and engineering labs. These ships are also equipped with an extensive suite of sensor systems.

The Engle Class is equipped with sixteen dual emitter phaser banks with eight of the banks mounted to the dorsal surface of the hull and the remaining eight mounted to the ventral surface. There are four photon torpedo launchers mounted so that two cover the forward firing arc and the remaining two cover the aft firing arc. To protect ships of this class from the hazards of space or attack the Engle Class is equipped with standard graviton based shields.

Class Service History

The USS T'Plana-Hath under attack during the Battle of the Binary Stars

In 2232 the design for the USS Engle was proposed to the Advanced Star Ship Design Bureau by the Antares ship yards. Upon review of the proposed design was returned to the engineers with requested changes that included strengthening the warp nacelles contention to the hull and increasing the number of phaser banks from twelve to sixteen. These changes were made and the updated design was resubmitted in 2234. The design was accepted by the ASSDB in 2235 and construction of the USS Engle was started in 2236 in a short keel laying ceremony. In 2238 construction was halted when a fault in the warp core was found that would have resulted in the core operating at a output level fifteen percent below the required levels. The core redesign was completed in 2239 and construction resumed. In 2241 the USS Engle left dry dock for a shake down cruise. In 2242 the Engle was fully commissioned while at docked at starbase ten and the Engle Class was put into full production.

The Engle Class were tasked with conducting missions of exploration beyond Federation borders. Ships of this class proved to be well suited to missions that found them lingering in newly discovered systems mapping the system and conducting cataloging newly discovered flora and fauna of M Class worlds.

While the Engle Class was primarily tasked with missions of exploration they also were equipped to handle combat operations with at least one ship of this class present at the Battle of the Binary Stars in 2256. During the the resulting war ships of the Engle class could be found along the front lines in the war with ships of this class conducting combat operations and paroling contested sectors of space. When the war ended these ships returned to exploration.

By 2226 the Engle class was a respected but aged ship class and the decision was made to decommission the class. The ships of the Engle Class were removed from front line duty and tasked with missions within the Federation. In 2339 the last Engle ship in operation was returned to the Antares Ship yards and removed from service.
