Specifications - USS Pandora


We are a Luna Class vessel, Starfleet's newest-generation of long-range explorer. We are a vessel designed for long-term, multipurpose missions into unchartered territory. Be prepared for exploration, investigation, skirmishes, and fun onboard the Pandora. Equipped with conventional tactical systems (deflector shields; phasers; quantum torpedoes, etc.), the Luna Class ship also boasts state-of-the-art propulsion and cutting-edge scientific equipment, as well as being a test bed for experimental science and sensor technology not yet available on other classes of starships.

Weapons & Defensive Systems

Shields • Class 9 Bubble shielding system, regenerative shielding system.
• Type: Molybdenum & Duranium Mesh
• Power: Two Graviton Polarity Generators, Warp Engine, Fusion Generators, and/or Impulse Power Plants (auxiliary)
• Field Strength: 550 Millicochranes

Output: There are 14 shield grids on the Luna Class and each one generates 157.35 MW, resulting in total shield strength of 2,202.09 MW, however typical shield configuration is 8 emitters with an output of 1,258.8 MW. The power for the shields is taken directly from the warp engines and impulse fusion generators. If desired, the shields can be augmented by power from the impulse power plants. The shields can protect against approximately 42% of the total EM spectrum (whereas a Galaxy Class Starship's shields can only protect against about 23%), made possible by the multi-phase graviton polarity flux technology incorporated into the shields.

Range: The shields, when raised, maintain an average range is 30 meters away from the hull.
Weapon Systems PHASERS:
• Phasers: 13 type-X phaser arrays

Phaser array arrangement: The dorsal saucer section is covered by four phaser strips; two of which extend from the aft curvature, along the length of the saucer and stop short of the auxiliary deflector incision. The aft firing arc is covered by two smaller arrays angled on the rear of the saucer section. The relative bottom of the ship is protected by two similar arrays as on the dorsal saucer section, extending to the rear of the saucer, and following the curve to the auxiliary deflector incision. Along with those arrays, are two small aft-angled phaser strips similar to the dorsal aft-fire strips. Additional protection is provided by a single array that extends laterally across the ventral engineering hull just fore of the warp core ejection port. Far-aft strips are provided on the underside of the mobile nacelle pylons and under the shuttlebay landing deck on the underside of the ship for a total ship’s complement of 13 arrays.

Phaser Array Type: The Luna Class utilizes the Type X array system, the new standard emitter. Each array fires a steady beam of phaser energy, and the forced-focus emitters discharge the phasers at speeds approaching .986c (which works out to about 182,520 miles per second - nearly warp one). The phaser array automatically rotates phaser frequency and attempts to lock onto the frequency and phase of a threat vehicle's shields for shield penetration.

Phaser Array Output: Each phaser array takes its energy directly from the impulse drive and auxiliary fusion generators. Individually, each Type X emitter can only discharge approximately 5.1 MW (megawatts). However, several emitters (usually two) fire at once in the array during standard firing procedures, resulting in a discharge approximately 10.2 MW.

Phaser Array Range: Maximum effective range is 300,000 kilometres.

• Torpedoes: 4 launchers (2 fore, 2 aft)
• Hellfire: 20
• Photon: 100
• Quantum: 80
• Transphaisic: 6 (TBC)
• Tri-Cobalt: 10

There are two fore and two aft torpedo launchers on the Pandora. Torpedo tubes one and two (fore) are located over the main deflector dish in the Stardrive section. Aft coverage is handled by a third and fourth torpedo launcher facing the rear of the ship in the upper engineering hull near where it meets the saucer.

Torpedo Range: Maximum effective range is 3,500,000 kilometers.
Armament Duranium microfoam and Tritanium plating composite.

(Partial) Ablative Armour
Primary: Two primary arrays (1 upper, 1 lower). Range of 18 Light Years. Can be set long, medium, or short range.
Secondary: Each primary array has a back up Secondary array. Range of 12 Light Years. Can be set long, medium, or short range.

There are 12 independent tactical sensors on the Luna Class. Each sensor automatically tracks and locks onto incoming hostile vessels and reports bearing, aspect, distance, and vulnerability percentage to the tactical station on the main bridge. Each tactical sensor is approximately 90% efficient against ECM, and can operate fairly well in particle flux nebulae (which has been hitherto impossible).
