NX Intrepid Class
|Date Entered Service:||
The NX Intrepid Class was commissioned in 2153 during the height of pre-Federation Starfleet. The Intrepid class was conceived of as a replacement for the older Jupiter class. The Intrepid design was based heavily on the NX class leading to the ship class often being referred to as the NX-Intrepid. This moniker is also useful in distinguishing this intrepid class from the intrepid class operated by the Federations Starfleet centuries later.
The basic layout of this class of ship follows the design layout of the older Franklin Class and the NX Class that would be launched in 2151. The ships bridge is located at the top of the ships saucer section. There is a small secondary engineering section directly attached to the ventral aft section of the saucer. The nacelle support pylons extend upward from near the aft end of the engineering section to hold the nacelles above the saucer section.
The NX Intrepid Class is equipped with eight phase cannons positioned so to cover all firing arcs. There are also two forward facing torpedo launcher. Ships of this class are equipped with hull polarization systems to proved defensive against enemy fire.
There are four shuttle bays located along the aft surface of the saucer. The two larger bays house the ships shuttle pods and the the smaller two bays each house the ships two observation pods. The ships two impulse engines are located at the outer most point of the aft surface of the saucer section.
Ships of the NX Intrepid Class are equipped with a full complement of science labs along with long range and short range sensors. This gives these vessels the needed capabilities to carry out missions of Scientific research and exploration.
