Like the Constitution Class, the Constellation's requirements, issued in 2272, called for a vessel capable of long duration exploratory, scientific and diplomatic missions. Introduced in the late 23rd century, the Constellation Classstarship was similar in overall size to a Constitution Classstarship. (Star Trek Encyclopedia) 1 Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 1: The Ships of Starfleet 2 Starbase23.net 3 Notes 4 External links The Zodiac-class cruiser entered service in 2365. A few Constellation class vessels remain in service; as is often the case with past-their-prime designs the ships are now used for general support duties. References Part 1 of the Constellation class cruiser. In addition, the Constellation's â¦ This gave the Constellation-class four forward photon tubes, each capable of firing a two torpedo spread for a very respectable total salvo of eight torpedoes. I started it waaaay back in 2011, and then abandoned it for a long time, Picked it up again recently and completed all the materials and rendered in Redshift. This went ahead as scheduled, and the Constellation class became the mainstay of the fleet. This would allow much duplication to be avoided, freeing up space for extra equipment and improving the efficiency of the design. The Constellation class starship was a Starfleet Light Cruiser serving from the late 23rd century through the 24th century.. Unlike most Starfleet Designs, the Constellation Class had its main shuttlebay at the front of the ship as a part of its saucer. The class' successor design were the Ambassador-class â¦ These pallets contained special sensor equipment that befitted her role as a deep-space explorer, most of which could be exchanged for mission specific equipment at a starbase, and could be accessed from the deck above. The Constellation was soon followed by two others, with construction beginning soon thereafter on the USS Stargazer and another sister ship. The first ship of this class, the USS Constellation, was commissioned under experimental status in the year 2275. The Constellation class starship was kitbashed together in 1987 for the first Season of Star Trek, the next generation. With the Constellation it was thought that SIF technology had advanced to the point where a Heavy Cruiser class could be fielded within a single hull. This class was designed for operating independently of Starfleet Command in the remote reaches of the Federation. These variations can be recognized between the USS Hatâ¦ The Victory had a long service in Starfleet, and this is how its bridge looked like when it was brand new, at the tail end of the 23rd Century. Calculated from the scale diagram assuming a length of 231. Scaling of bridge module and impulse engines to the refit Constitution class gives a figure in the 230 - 260 range. Jump to: navigation, search. Hathaway and the U.S.S. Cabins aboard Constellation-class starships were of typical design associated with Federation starship of the era, providing spartan accommodations for the crew. Many had already been entirely decommissioned and rendered "warp inactive", which included removing all antimatter but did not include removing the warp core. This quick burst of coherent warp travel facilitates a Federationtactic known colloquially as the "The Picard Maneuver." Including , but not limited to the USS STARGAZER, Captain Picard's first command. The new ship was to be able to perform this role over the longer ranges called for now that the Federation had acquired new members beyond its previous borders. The Constellations have had a generally undistinguished career, with one notable exception being the USS Stargazer. warp: warp 9.2: Armaments: 4 Type-VIII phaser arrays 2 photon torpedo launchers: Defenses: Deflector shields: Crew: 350 One of the most unique starship designs of the Linear Warp era, the Constellation(CA 1974) class Cruiser was the first to successfully incorporate a quad-nacelle arrangement as well as the first to be designed expressly for operation in extremely remote regions, independent of anyStarfleet support, for â¦ Also included is multi-view color schematic sheet. In 2364 the ship was recovered, 16 x Type VIII phaser bank, total output 7,500 TeraWatts, Standard shield system, total capacity 418,500 TeraJoules. Captain Picard's former command, the Stargazer, was of Constellation-class.Other notable ships of this type have included the U.S.S. There are currently no ships in ST:SFO using this class.
