Star Trek c.2269

Posted in Star Trek on 08/04/2012 by patrickivan

This ship was inspired by the idea that Starfleet developed their own cloaked vessel based on the Klingon D-7 design after stealing the cloaking device from the Romulans. There are only 3 of these ships in Starfleet service. The first of these vessels was nicknamed Blackbird. One issue that starfleet has been having with these vessels involve the mattar antimatter engines held within the outboard warp nacelles. The problematic nature surrounding this is the warp signiture is difficult to mask while cloaked at warp speeds. As a direct result, speed is limited to a sleepy warp factor 2.9.
