Sovereign 4

Obtained via Google

The Sovereign-class starship was introduced in the late 24th century, showcasing some of Starfleet's most recent technological advances.

The Sovereign-class was introduced during the early 2370s, and was, at the time, the most advanced starship design in the fleet, though not as large as the Galaxy class starship.

Nearly seven hundred meters in length, the design of the Sovereign-class consisted of two hull sections: a saucer-shaped primary hull and a secondary hull which mounted two warp nacelles.

The Sovereign-class starship had several weaponry enhancements over previous starship classes, including quantum torpedoes as well as photon torpedoes, and numerous phaser banks and arrays.

NOTES:

1 - Depleting the MDC of the Engineering Section will put the ship out of commission. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity. If the Saucer Section manages to detach then it will have minimal ability to function with only the 2 Type X/200 phasers and 2 type X/50 Phasers and 1 photon Torpedo Launcher, and only impulse engines.

1B - Depleting the MDC of the Saucer section will render all systems in teh saucer section inoperable and probably destroyed and unsalvageable. Full control can be maintained by the enigineering section however from the battle bridge. The ship will however lose both Type X/200 phasers, 2 Type X/50 Phasers and 1 photon Torpedo Launcher as well as many of the primary Science labs, stellar cartography and main medical.

1C - Destroying the Bridge will automatically switch control to the battle bridge in the engineering section. ONce control is established in teh battle bridge efficiency of the vessel will only be marginally affected.

2 - Destroying the sensor dish will deprive the ship of all forms of long range communications, radar and targeting. The range and targeting capabilities of the secondary systems are equal to that of a shuttlecraft at best. The ship can still operate, but is at -3 on initiative, -3 to strike, and number of attacks per melee of the weapon systems are reduced by half.

3 - Destroying the main or secondary hangers will greatly impair the carrier's ability to deploy and recover aircraft. Under normal operations the carrier can launch or recover up to 4 shuttles per melee. If the main hanger is destroyed this number drops to 1. If both hangers are destroyed the carrier cannot deploy any craft until at least one hanger is repaired.

4 - Depleting the MDC of the the warp nacelles will force the ship to rely on its Impulse engines. Depleting the MDC of the main engines AND secondary engines will leave the ship adrift in space with very minimal movement allowed by its docking thrusters. If in an atmosphere, the ship will crash.

5 - Shields regenerate at 100 mdc per melee. Only if a generator is damaged will the ability for shields to regenerate be hampered


AR - 17

Armour - Stops the equivalent of Type V Phasers and Mk 5 Disruptors.
