Class Description

Class Design Brief

USS Stargazer under tow from the USS Enterprise

The Constellation Class is a single hull design with four warp nacelles and four impulse engines. The ship's hull is composed of a forward saucer shaped forward section that tappers into a squared off aft section. The Constellation Class is one of only a handful of ship designs that have four warp nacelles. Other ships with this design feature are the Nimitz Class, Cardenas Class, Cheyenne Class, Prometheus Class, and Cerberus Class.

The sensor systems of the ships of this class are housed in three locations. The first location is the upper sensor dome located on deck one just above the ship's bridge. The upper sensor dome houses the majority of the ship's navigational sensor systems. The second location the lower sensor dome located at the ventral most point of the ship's hull on deck fifteen. This lower sensor dome houses the majority of the ships sort range sensor systems. The third location is the sensor pods built into the ventral surface of the ship's hull. These pods house the remainder of the ships senor systems. These pods also have space for mission specific sensor systems allowing ships of the Constellation class to take on a wider variety of exploration and research missions that would otherwise possible.

The ships of this class are equipped with six Type-VIII phaser banks with each bank equipped with dual phaser emitters. Three of these Phaser Banks are mounted to the dorsal surface of the ship's hull and the remaining three are mounted to the ventral surface of the hull. This class of ship is equipped with four forward facing torpedo launchers. Two of these launchers are housed in the upper torpedo pod that is held above the ship's bridge by a support pylon that extends upward from the dorsal surface of the aft engineering section. The other two launchers are housed in the lower torpedo pod. This lower pod is held at the end of a support pylon that extends downward from the ventral surface of the engineering hull so that the pod is held below the ventral most point of the ship's hull. To protect the ships of the Constellation Class from the hazards found deeps space these ships are equipped with Graviton Shielding System.

Ships of the Constellation Class are equipped with three shuttle bays and four cargo bays. The large main shuttle bay is located at the forward most point of the ships hull. The smaller two shuttle bays are located on the port and starboard side of the hull were the forward saucer section meets the aft engineering section. The cargo bays are located directly amidships with two on the port side and the other two on the starboard side of the hull.

The ship’s warp nacelles are divided into two groups of two. The upper dorsal nacelles is held so they flank the upper torpedo pod with one nacelle held at the end of a pylon extending directly to port from the upper torpedo pod. The lower nacelles are held at the end of a pylon extending directly to starboard from the upper torpedo pod. The lower nacelles are held so they flank the lower torpedo pod on pylons extending directly to port and starboard in the same manner as the upper nacelles. The impulse engines are located in the aft engineering section. Two of the impulse engines are located on the port side of the engineering section and the other two are located on the starboard side.
