U.S.S. PHOENIX NCC-65420

NEBULA-CLASS STARSHIP


The Nebula-class Starship Development Project began in 2343. The project was a direct descendent of the Galaxy-class starship, with much of the Nebula technology based on the Galaxy-class. The project came about because Starfleet needed a starship with the capabilities of a Galaxy-class starship, but in a smaller package, allowing for faster and more efficient construction. The Nebula-class starship uses a saucer section based on the Galaxy-class design, attached to a smaller stardrive section. The Nebula saucer is not separatable from the engineering hull. The Nebula-class starships feature a large customizable equipment module on top of the engineering hull stardrive section. Depending on the mission of the starship, different modules can be installed. Most Nebula starships are usually configured for weapons and sensors.

The prototype starship U.S.S. Nebula NCC-60147 was commissioned in 2357 at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. The U.S.S. Nebula was destroyed by the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359 in 2367.
