Specifications

Class: Discovery
Role: Deep space Explorer
Expected Duration: 100 years
Time Before Refit: 25 Years
Time Before Resupply: 2-3 Years


Compliment

Standard Compliment: 1,215
Officers: 320
Enlisted Officers: 720
MACOs: 175 (Company + Squadron)
Emergency Capacity: 8,000


Propulsion

Quantite Fusion Warp Core

The class is equipped with the same Quantite Fusion Warp Core that was first installed on the refit Excalibur-class, another large explorer type ship.

Like on the Excalibur-class, the four cores put out a significant warp signature which is difficult if not impossible to mask.

This issue is mitigated somewhat by new warp coil designs and a modified warp field geometry.

Due to the four core configuration, engineers can re-distribute power from any core at any time and even leave two cores in a hot standby mode for quick activation.

Under normal conditions the ship can operate on a single core at full capacity but would be limited to low warp speeds even with non-essential systems disabled.


Slipstream Drive

The Discovery class is equipped with a new model of the Starfleet Quantum Slipstream Generator. This model is designed specifically to propel a ship as large as the Discovery class through a slipstream tunnel.

As a result of the power requirements the drive cannot be used on any standard starship and requires at a minimum all four cores of the warp core to be operating at 50% of capacity; or two cores operating at 100% capacity.

Another limitation of the design which is mostly attributed to the mass of the starship is the recommended limit of 3-5 days straight travel through slipstream. Any longer could risk damage to the drive, or to the ship if the tunnel should collapse.


Impulse Drives

The Discovery-class has a total of four impulse engines which are each powered by large fusion reactors.

The additional impulse engines over the previous explorer type ship (Excalibur-class) provides the Discovery-class with much improved acceleration.
