Star Trek Starship and
Starfleet Intelligence Central Records Archive (SICRA)
Compiled Starship and Technology Report
As requested, selected starship and technology intelligence reports transferred from the Central Records Archive
located at Starfleet Intelligence headquarters. Per regulations all information in this document is considered
classified and is not to be shared with individuals without prior clearance.
You may now use this PADD to review intelligence information obtained from the major powers of the galaxy translated
into standard Federation English for your convenience. To review, click the button at the top of your PADD. Further
database structure and usage information can be found in the database guide.
Please select the starship intelligence report of your choice. It should be noted that because of the nature of
intelligence gathering, only a limited amount of information may have been obtained due to an increase in security or
the reassignment or untimely death of one or more undercover agents. However Star Fleet Intelligence is committed to
gather the most complete intelligence possible, no matter the cost.
Star Trek Intelligence is proud to announce a brand new web site, ST-I Wiki. ST-I Wiki is the companion wiki to Star Trek
Intelligence that will allow visitors to freely edit any of the information found on ST-I, or add additional information that
has not been included on the main site, without the need to editor review. As with ST-I, ST-I Wiki will remained focused on
creating the most in depth source for Star Trek starships and technology; itís our hope that the two web sites will share the
best and most accurate information between them.
Why is ST-I Wiki being created?
Over the years visitors like you have asked for many changes to the information contained on ST-I. One of the most common
requests is to add non-cannon starships or split refit classes. ST-I Wiki should give visitors a free hand to create the
web pages they want to see along with adding numerous small details not covered in ST-Iís briefing format. Finally this
should improve the overall responsiveness to user submissions to ST-I and eliminate lengthy delays.
We hope you enjoy this new resource from ST-I.

Notes: The Ambassador could be considered Starfleet's first modern class design. Designed to replace the aging Excelsior
class, and to fulfill an expanded mission role, the Ambassadors were equipped with upgraded scientific and diplomatic resources.
The new role reflected a mission of exploration for Starfleet after the Kithomer accords created peace with the Klingon Empire.
Though no longer needed to defend the frontiers, the Ambassador class was also equipped with upgraded weapons systems to relieve
the outmatched Excelsior class in battle situations. History records that an Ambassador Class starship, the Enterprise-C,
finally cemented relations between the Klingon Empire and the Federation while defending a Klingon outpost against a Romulan
attack, at the cost of the destruction of the Enterprise-C. Today the Ambassador class is limited to service in Starfleet's
military wing surpassed by more advance classes.
There are times when a starship maybe required to land on the surface of a planet, and return to oribit. Such situations include emergency landings, inoperable transporter systems, and extended repairs when space dock is not available. Currently only smaller Federation starships, such as the Intrepid and Defiant classes, are equipped with landing systems.
After entering the planet ¬ís atmosphere the ship will extend landing struts from the bottom of the secondary hull that are capable of supporting the entire weight of the starship. When a landing site is selected the starship comes to zero forward velocity and descends vertically. The final decent is slowed by the ships n avigation thruster, such that it comes to a soft landing on the surface.
Landing a starship is not a recommended procedure as stresses can be extreme and unpredictable on a starship when entering the atmosphere. Use of transporters or shuttlecraft are the preferred method to reach a planet¬ís surf ace.
