Class Description

Class Design Brief

USS Odyssey undergoing saucer separation test near Belor IV

The Odyssey Class follows the primary, secondary, and twin nacelles design that has become the standard hull arrangement for Starfleet ships. These ships also have the stream lined design that allows the ship's warp filed to be more energy efficient and lest damaging to the fabric of space.

The primary hull houses the ship's main bridge module at the top of the primary hull. The primary hull also houses the medical and science labs. The bulk of the ship's crew and guest quarters are located in the primary hull. The secondary engineering and warp core are also housed in the primary hull. This secondary core can be used as an auxiliary power source for the ship or to power the primary hull warp coils while the primary hull is operating in independent flight mode. With these warp coils the primary hull is able to cruise at warp 6 or maintain an emergency speed of 8.89 for up to twelve hours. There are two of the ship's four impulse engines that are housed within the primary hull allowing this hull to reach a top sub-light speed of 1/3 the speed of light. The ship's single shuttle bay is also housed within the primary hull

The two hulls are connected by two neck structures that extend from the ventral surface of the primary hull and attach to the dorsal surface of the secondary hull.

The secondary hull houses the ships main warp core. The Odyssey class carries a single Aquarius Class escort cruiser in a dedicated docking cradle at the aft most point of the secondary hull between the connect points between the secondary hull and the warp nacelle support pylons. The ship's second pair of impulse engines are housed within the support pylons. These pylons hold the twin nacelles so they flank the bridge module and the ramscoops have a clear forward line of sight. Major ship systems such as the main deflector dish and long range sensor systems are housed within the secondary hull.

The Odyssey Class is equipped with Regenerative Shielding System to protect the ship from hazardous conditions. These ships are also equipped with nineteen Type XII Phaser arrays spread across the dorsal and ventral surface of the primary and secondary hull. There are also six torpedo launchers where four of the launchers cover the forward firing arch and the other two cover the aft firing arch.

Class Service History

USS Aquarius approaching the USS Odyssey for docking after flight testing

The Design for the Odyssey class was submitted to the A.S.D.B. in 2378 and after review the ship design was approved in 2379. Construction of the USS Odyssey was started later that year. In 2384 as construction was nearing completion the USS Aquarius was docked with the Odyssey for the first time. This high lighted a design flaw with the docking system where the air locks between the two ships did not properly align keeping them from being used. This led to the system undergoing a review and design that led to the docking latches being modified to pull the Aquarius further into the docking cradle so that the air locks could properly align. The Odyssey was launched from dry dock in 2386 for a shake down cruise. During this cruise the ship systems were tested and modified until the ship was found to be ready for service. In 2387 the Odyssey was fully commissioned and launched for her first mission.

Since 2387 the Odyssey Class has been seen at the edges of explored space poking into the unexplored regions of space. While this ship is still new the Odyssey Class ships have been operating without any major problems. With each ship expected to have a life span of 105 years it expected to be in service well into the 2400's and might even prove to be a worth successor to venerable ship classes such as the Excelsior class
