History Of Constitution-Class Starships



CONSTITUTION-CLASS STARSHIP
U.S.S. ENTERPRISE NCC-1701
U.S.S. ENTERPRISE NCC-1701-A
USS Enterprise-A In 2220, the Federation Council formed the Starship Design Bureau (SDB), a division of Starfleet, to oversee design and contruction of new Starfleet starships. The Constitution-class vessel was co-designed by Vulcan and Earth. The first Constitution-class starship construction began in 2225 at Earth’s San Francisco Fleet Yards. The starship was designed with two primary goals: deep-space exploration and to defend the Federation from the Klingons, Romulans, and Tholians.

Constitution-class starships used duotronic computers based on a design developed by Dr. Richard Daystrom in 2243. The computer operating system is usually referred to as the Duotronic Computer Library Database (DCLD).

The U.S.S. Constitution, Starfleet registry NCC-1700 was commissioned by Starfleet in 2343, commanded by Commodore Matthew Decker. The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, the first production vessel, was commissioned in 2345, under the command of Captain Robert April, then Captain Christopher Pike, and finally Captain James T. Kirk in 2264.

Due to advances in starship development, the Constitution-class vessels were slated to receive a major refit in 2269. The refit of the Enterprise NCC-1701, supervised by Captain Willard Decker, began in 2269 and completed in 2271. After the success of the Constitution, design of the Excelsior-class began.

The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 was destroyed at the planet Genesis in 2285. James Kirk ordered the auto-destruct to prevent the ship from being captured by the Klingons. The refit U.S.S. Yorktown NCC-1717 was recommissioned as the U.S.S. Enterprise

All Constitution-class starships were decommissioned from active service by 2295.

August 31: On This Day In Science Fiction History

What?  You say you've never seen Returner?  Well, I can't say as I'd be all that surprised.  It's a Japanese time travel flick -- pretty cool, if I don't say so myself -- that opened over there on this day back in 2002.  It's a lot of flash and glam, that way most comic book films are, and the story involves a young woman…See More

"Some might argue that Frankenstein was THE 1st science fiction story ever written. Personally, I think that one could go all the way back to the story of Icarus & Daedalus, or is that too much of a stretch? "

What I've Been Up To

Hey shipmates, Yeah, I haven't been around much lately, sorry about that. There's been a lot of personal nonsense going on that I won't go into; I come to Trekspace to take a break from sh** like that. Once the dust settles (I hope), I'll be here so much that you'll get sick of me! On a cheerier note, I've also been busy writing the 3rd entry in my Paul Murdock thriller series, and it is now available on Kindle! This is the first time I ever wrote a novella, rather than a novel or a short…See More

"@Mike: You are correct, sir.  Dinklage had a good presence, but from what I remember he was all attitude with little else to do.  Good program that hinted of a great idea, just never really caught fire the way some shows do."

"You're not the only one. I thought that Threshold was an interesting take on a familiar premise; it was also nice to see Brent Spiner acting sans the Data makeup. If I remember correctly, didn't this show also feature Peter Dinklage long…"
