Welcome to the new and improved Star Trek Intelligence 6.0. I apologize for the long neglect of the site, after the 'reported' death of Star Trek. Though with new life, I though it might might be time to also bring the old site back to life for the enjoyment of all.

Notes: The Excelsior class was originally designed as a test bed for Starfleet's first experimental transwarp drive. Having been sabotaged in the engines' first transwarp test and having failed in all subsequent attempts, the Excelsior prototype was refitted with a conventional warp drive. As full production started on the Excelsior class, the ship became the mainstay of the fleet in the late 23rd and early 24th centuries, replacing the older Constitution class as the flagship class. The Excelsior class remains in service today, more then 60 years after if was first launched, through a program of continuous enhancements to the ships systems, being the personal flagship of choice for many admirals. The Excelsior class has two major refit variants, the Enterprise-B type and the Lakota type. The Enterprise-B type, commissioned in the late 23rd century, has upgraded sensor and science systems. The Lakota type, commissioned in 2372 right before the outbreak of the Dominion war, brought the weapon and defensive systems up to standard with the Defiant and Sovereign classes.

Unlike the early days of space exploration when all crew and passengers aboard starships accepted certain dangers, the newest generation of Federation starships, such as the Galaxy class, have ample room and resources to support non-Starfleet passengers. Starfleet first designed saucer separation as a method to remove the crew and their families from danger in certain emergency conditions. Starfleet ’s largest starships are actually two space vehicle systems, the saucer section and the star drive section, that are capable of independent operation and combine to form a single operational starship.

Saucer separation can be used in a variety of situations; first if the starships warp core is dam aged beyond repair and headed toward a warp core breach, the saucer section can be used as a life boat to transport the entire crew beyond the blast radius of the exploding star drive section. Since the saucer section does not have warp capabilities the saucer section and crew will be stranded unti l rescued by Starfleet.

The starship can also be separated in anticipation of battle situations to remove non-essential personal from the battle zone, only a skeleton crew is left aboard the star drive section during combat. The ship’s star drive section contains the ships warp engines and majori ty of the ships weaponry; when relived of the bulk of its mass the star drive section becomes an effective battle platform and lives are not risked unnecessary.

A Galaxy class starship connects the star drive and saucer sections though a series of eighteen docking latches situated on the load beari ng points on the ship’s space frame. When saucer separation is initiated the latches will retract into the dorsal surface of the star drive section. While the latches are retracting, trubolifts and all other interconnecting supply and computer systems are sealed off, creating two independent vehi cles. Saucer separation can be accomplished at impulse or warp speeds.
