Specifications - USS Hera

« Back to Specs


The Specifications for the USS Hera Registery Code NCC-79010, a Nebula Class Starship with a heavy Intel refit. Nacelles have been completely replaced with new Venture series nacelles, granting higher warp factors. The pod has been replaced with a special Intel pod with similar tactical and sensor capabilities of the prior pod but with more Intel oriented equipment. New armor plating renders the ship virtually undetectable by most known sensors when polarized and has a purple-green dark pearlescence so even visual confirmation is difficult.

Refit Notes
-Tactical/Sensor Pod replaced with Intel Pod - capabilities are similar but with an added deck for Intel specific equipment and sensor systems. This includes the sub-quantum data encryption lab, S31 armory, and the Celium system.
-Deck 13 Intel Offices and quarantined computer core - In the old saucer blueprints was some spare space between the IDF generators and a cargo bay. Work areas for three dozen personnel are available.
- Bridge Module replacement - Rather than the normal Nebula bridge module or even the Galaxy bridge module we were formerly fitted with, we've received a Hope series bridge module with blue and grey decor and dedicated Intel workstations and seats for everyone.
- Warp Nacelles - The standard Nebula/Galaxy series of nacelles have been replaced with Venture series nacelles. The MARA has also been replaced with a higher output model. This upgrade may be finicky, but will allow minimal subspace disturbance and better efficiency at higher warp factors. Specs are modified to reflect this.
- Armor plating - The entire outer hull is now covered in a pearlescent plating that when energized will in theory completely mask the Hera's energy and sensor signatures. While active, you'd have to look out a window to locate the Hera.
-Point Defense System - All phaser strips not in normal use (anything other than the two main ones on the saucer) can have their programming switched to act as a series of individual emitters that can fire small pulses of phaser energy in the vicinity of torpedoes. Not powerful enough to do anything to really even a shielded shuttle, but enough to destroy incoming artillery.
