    [2d20] Federation Spaceframes, 2245-2275

    Those of you who have been around here for the last 15+ years know how much of a gearhead I am. Of course, once I had the new 2d20 rules, you know it would only be a matter of time before I started converting all of my CODA entries over to Star Trek Adventures spaceframes.

    Here are the Federation ships, 2245-2275. Others will come along in a bit of a haphazard fashion, though I'll always post them in groups.

    Spaceframes in this thread:
    Andor-class "missile" cruiser (an Andorian design)
    Anton-class light cruiser
    Baker-class heavy destroyer
    Wilkerson-class destroyer
    Thufir-class destoyer (an Andorian design)
    Remora-class heavy escort
    Chandley-class heavy frigate
    Northampton-class heavy frigate
    Kiev-class fast frigate
    Nelson-class "scout" (light cruiser)
    Loknar-class heavy frigate (an Andorian design)
    Larson-class destroyer
    Oberth-class surveyor

    NOTES
    wf 6/7/8

    The Andor-class cruiser is a rarity of the 23rd-Century Starfleet; it is a purely military vessel, with little of the traditional multi-mission capabilities that most cruisers include. Designed in the wake of the Federation's belief that the Organians had lost interest in continuing their interdiction against Federation-Klingon conflict, the Andor-class was built to support fleet actions.

    Using a withering volley of torpedo fire to decimate enemy formations from a distance, the Andor can hang back from the skirmish lines and pick off ships while the front-line combatants slug it out at close range.

    The Andor is one of three Andorian designs in Starfleet service and all are named for Andorian military leaders. Most of these cruisers are almost entirely crewed by Andorians, and form the core of what is affectionately termed the "Blue Fleet."

    NOTES
    wf 4/5/6 (upon the 1st Engines refit in or after 2268, increase to wf 6/7/8)

    The predecessor to the successful Miranda-class cruiser, the Anton was at the forefront of the Federation expansion effort in the 2240s and 50s. Originally designed as a mid-range exploration vessel, the light cruiser performed the more mundane exploratory missions from many of the new starbases that were being built along the frontier.

    In the 2260s, Starfleet engineers designed an update the spaceframe's aging torpedo system and warp drive. However, engineers underestimated the frailty of the Anton's reinforced spaceframe, and the nacelles had a tendency to literally shear themselves off the struts under high-speed and high-stress maneuvers. These defects prompted Starfleet to completely redesign the vessel, resulting in the larger Miranda-class cruiser.

    NOTES
    wf 6/7/8

    The Baker-class heavy destroyer was initially designed as a cruiser, but a shortage of military vessels in the early 2270s prompted Starfleet to redesignate the class. A quick redesign was ordered, and the first Bakers left spacedock in 2272.

    The design incorporates powerful impulse engines that make it faster in sublight than any other vessel in production. This superior maneuverability in combat makes up for the destroyer’s insufficient firepower at long range. As such, Baker captains prefer to close quickly and pummel the enemy with its Type VII phasers.

    With a dual-walled internal structure that provides extra protection against explosive decompression during battle, the Baker has proven extremely hardy in combat.

    NOTES
    wf 7/9/12

    The second Starfleet vessel to mount the new LN-64 Mod 3 warp engine after the Thufir's successful test, the Wilkerson-class destroyer mirrors the Baker's speed and combat capability. Designed more as a troubleshooter, the Wilkerson is able to reach hot-spots quickly to support Federation interests.

    The Wilkerson also suffers from insufficient firepower at range, but again proves extremely capable in close combat. The destroyer has gained such a reputation against the enemy that Starfleet crews often refer to the ship's tactics as "The Wilkerson Charge."

    NOTES
    wf 7/9/12

    When Starfleet needed a testbed for the new LN-64 Mod 3 warp drive, they found a ship that the Andorians were designing for use in the ADF. The destroyer was rechristened the Thufir-class, and six vessels went into production. All launched in 2268 with Andorian crews, and tested the new warp drive to and beyond its limits.

    USS L'neru was lost when its warp field inverted due to a previously unknown interstellar phenomenon, vaporizing the mysterious phenomenon and the ship in a spectacular explosion. The remaining five test ships, however, proved the LN-64 an outstanding success, and the destroyer entered limited production.

    The Remora-class escort is a quick vessel that favors offensive punch over defensive capability. Lacking many amenities that other Starfleet vessels enjoy, the Remora is designed for short missions from a supporting starbase or station.

    The Chandley's design sequence essentially began on the heels of the Axanari Rebellion, resulting in Starfleet's largest and most capable warship prior to 2285.

    Starfleet conducted an extensive review of its actions and capabilities during the Rebellion, and determined that it most lacked a "troop moving" capability. It was under this initial premise that the Chandley program began, but Starfleet's move away from the idea of reestablishing Military Assault Command Operations prompted designers to shelve the design for the time being.

    But when conflict with the Klingons flared up again in the 2260s, the design was revived, updated, then shelved briefly again when the Organian Treaty was enacted. Skirmishes with the Klingons began to take place again in 2270, and the need for a heavy combat vessel was once-again readily apparent. The Chandley was revisited, altered, and approved for production.

    The frigate included Type VII phasers and a hardened operations system. The Chandley also departed from the traditional elegant Starfleet designs for a massive, almost-threatening look.

    The class ceased production in 2286.

    Before the popularity of "embedded warp nacelles" designs of the 2370s, the Northampton-class heavy frigate was one of Starfleet's initial forays into placing the nacelles under the protective armor of the ship's hull. Initially launched in 2275, the Northampton incorporated many lessons learned from USS Enterprise's 2273 refit and the Andorian-designed Andor-class missile cruiser and Thufir-class destroyer.

    The Kiev-class fast frigate was Starfleet's first platform to carry the newly-tested LN-64 Mod 3 warp system. Fast and nimble, the Kiev immediately assumed border patrol duties along both the Klingon and Romulan neutral zones, in squadrons of three and four ships. These "wolf packs" quickly proved their effectiveness in stopping blockade-runners and rogue elements of the Klingon and Romulan navies.

    The Nelson-class scout was at the forefront of the Federation's expansion efforts of the 2240s. Dozens of these long-range vessels scattered to the far reaches of the frontier, cataloging stars and planets, observing new life forms and civilizations, and occasionally making first contact.

    Unlike most of their contemporaries, the Nelson was not spacious, instead filling all available hull space with sensor enhancements and protection. This allowed the scout to scan larger areas of space faster than any other vessel previously could.

    The Nelson performed its job so well that Starfleet felt no need for a new class of scouts until the mid-2260s, when it was apparent that the Nelson didn't have the longevity of the other 2245-era vessels, despite upgrades to critical systems beginning in 2260. Many experts believed that the original twin-coil "single-down" nacelle design was flawed, reducing the hull's prospective lifespan.

    The Nelson was phased out in the mid 2270s, and Starfleet turned to the Oberth-class surveyor to fill the dedicated scout role for the remainder of the century.

    The Loknar-class frigate was the third of four major classes of vessels produced during the Federation expansion period of the mid-2240s, thanks to Andorian arguments that the new Federation frontier needed warships in case of another disastrous first contact (like the Romulans and Klingons in decades and centuries past). As such, the Loknar is the first popular "Andorian design," and its lengthy service is a tribute to the quality of Andorian engineering.

    The frigate proved its value during the Axanar rebellion, although Starfleet realized the need to add photon torpedoes to the ship (which it did in refits starting in 2253). One ship, the former USS Morgan City (NCC-2704), was captured by Klingon Admiral Kamato in 2255 and later used in an failed attempted coup of the chancellorship. Kamato later used the frigate, now called the IKSV Staav'eMara, to prey on shipping within the Triangle sector. The ship was last seen in 2278, but intelligence reports indicate it is still in active Klingon service.

    The Larson-class destroyer was part of the Federation's expansion of the 2240s. An efficient patrol vessel that carried a surprisingly capable science department, the Larson often operated independently in peacetime, performing many of the same functions as the Constitution and Anton-class cruisers.

    The class saw heavy action in the Axanar Rebellion, performing well above expectations. Various design improvements were instituted as a result of lessons learned in the conflict; however, Starfleet began to phase the Larson out as it moved away from the twin-coil single warp nacelle designs.

    The Oberth-class surveyor was built to follow up on the Nelson-class scout’s successful scouting service. While designed with incredibly capable sensors, the Oberth, as a survey vessel, nonetheless did not have the range and ruggedness its predecessor. As a result, Oberths were lost as high rates until Starfleet decided to scale back its ambitions regarding the surveyor’s capabilities.

    Once relegated to secondary scouting and surveying roles, the Oberth performed admirably, leaving Starfleet without a dedicated long-range scout well into the next century.

    I recently got the PDF from drivethru, went straight away to character creation and starship creation, still learning the game mechanics and reading through, but I like the look of the system so far.

    But I digress, this is some good looking work on your part and much appreciated !

    I hope to try the Luna, Vesta and Diligent (fan) classes soon
