Archer Class Starship
« on: 16 August 2008 12:41 AM »
Here is my Starship design. Hope you guys like it.


Ship class: Archer Class

Ship Name: EB-01 Endeavour

Service years: 2162-2174

Purpose: Originally designed to be the Ship of the Line for Starfleet during the Romulan War, after the war it was refit with a new warp drive system and impulse drive and was converted to a ship of exploration.

Length: 3000 ft.

Beam: 700 ft.

Height: 96 ft.

Number of Decks: 12

Max Warp Factor: 7.4 for 1 hour - (after refit) 7.9999 for 6 hours hour.

Cruising Speed: Warp 6.7 - (after refit) 7.5

Max Sublight Speed: 120 mmps - (after refit) 180 mmps

Max Crew Compliment: 224

Weapons: 16 class III phase cannon ports, 8 forward photonic torpedo tubes, 4 aft photonic torpedo tubes.

Defense systems: Polarisable Hull Plating Version 7.3, Prototype Primary Shields - (after refit) Version 4.3 Primary Shields, Primary Deflector, Duranium Hull Composition.

Number of ships in service: 14

History:
The Archer Class ship is most famous for It's outstanding maneuverablilty, which is the reason most historians say that the Archer fleet (composed of 6 fresh-out-of-drydock Archer class ships) conquered the Romulan War Bird fleet (composed of 7 War Birds) in July of 2163, without losing one ship. This victory caused morale all through the Federation to lift, and all the admirals of Starfleet to send the Andorian Imperial Guard their thanks, as the shield technology they released to Starfleet had won them the battle. Only 2 ships of this class were ever lost, thanks to the prototype shields, durable hull plating, and all the photonic torpedo launchers.

The class was named because Admiral Archer, who was the Captain of Earth's first deep exploration starship, the NX-01 Enterprise, had plenty of battle experience from 2153, when he had entered the Delta Quadrant to fight the Xindi.

Other Contributes:
With the help of Captain Reed of the Starsearcher, the tactical systems were deemed 69% more effective than the previous weapons systems. Before Commander Charles Tucker of the NX-01 Enterprise died in an attempt to save the Enterprise in 2161, he left some very helpful notes about the Transporter, which was able to beam people from site-to-site, The Anti-Matter Injectors, which helped calculate out the efficiency of the next Engines, and the Protein Resequencer, which is now able to convert energy to matter. All of this technology was installed on the Archer Class.

This is an intresting design, but I have one problem with it- the ship it three times longer than the heavy crusers built in the TOS era. I was under the inpresion that Starfleet did not have the resources and facilities to build a ship that big untill almost TNG.

Just a note, you might want to correct the reference to the Xindi being in the Delta Quadrant. It was actually the Delphic Expanse.

I do agree about the ship size. A bit big, but nothing a few numbers being changed wouldn't cure.

Other than that, nice ship!

The NX-01 was a small vessel and the design actualy was used to be of a later Era beginning with TNG. She was either the origin of ships what had followed. So the Endeavour is a equivalent to small dimensions ships the Defiant class.

Maybe Cpt. Archer is the reason why the Romulans had to start a war with Cpt. James T. Kirk & the UFP.

Everyone thanks for the advice. I cannot change numbers around right now because I am VERY busy, so busy I couldnt finish or release my next ship desgn. I will in a few weeks, rest assured. (And a note, I thought the Delphic Expanse was in the Delta Quadrant. Sorry, I stand corrected.)
