Possible inclusion of the Mesopotamia class
« on: May 03, 2008, 05:57:02 AM »
OK, here we go again, since the server transfer nuked this thread of mine.

OK, so, first off, repeat my question: When do you all think that Ambassador class-like phaser strips could first appear on fed starships? I need this for the regs of the last batch of ships of this class.

Name: Mesopotamia class
Ship Specs:
--Type: Multirole Cruiser

--Length: 280.0 meters
--Width: 146.84 meters
--Height: 63.45 meters
--Decks: 18

--Max sublight speed: 0.399c

Embarked craft: 6 shuttles, 8 max

Short history:
The Mesopotamia started out as a medium science cruiser class to fill the gap in Starfleets arsenal of ship classes. But nearly over a year prior to building the experimental vessel, her weapon arsenal was refurbished from combat experience of the Constitution class. On tests, it was realized that the ship has more to offer than previously anticipated. She could carry out nearly any mission profile, be it scientific or combat in nature, making her Starfleets first multirole cruiser type (a task that later, 24th Century starships could do routinely). After the launch of the Enterprise-B, a new batch was ordered with latest technology upgrades of the time, and the surviving first batch ships where upgraded.

During the early 24th century, given the Mesopotamia's successful 30 year run, a new batch was ordered, incorporating the latest in technology of the time, including the then experimental phaser strip technology, that would in later become standard for Starfleet vessels.

Thanks for reposting!

I remember the only thing you may consider to fix would be the mass. Otherwise: a great design!

So, no objections on the phaser strip variants registry? As for the displacement, I used the Luxor's (870000 MT) as a guide, this ship isn't much bigger, but it's bulkier.

I'd make the registry much higher, but that's me.
