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.

February 27: On This Day in Science Fiction History

As I've said many times before, I never much cared for Firefly or its subsequent theatrical outing Serenity.  It was all well and good ... just not my cup of tea.  But I love the work of Adam Baldwin.  He's been a terrific addition to The Last Ship on TNT, if you caught any of its first season.  Plus, I follow him on…See More

Alan's Work Bee

"Very cool. Have you considered trying to build a 2-man shuttle pod from Next Gen like the EL BAZ that Data would take once in awhile. It's not much bigger than a worker bee and is much easier to build than a full sized shuttle craft."

Steve Emirzian replied to Steve Emirzian's discussion Doomsday Machine questions
"Good point. We know the BRIDGE was uninhabitable so the hanger bay may have looked undamaged but was. I would have liked a line or two at least indicating the shuttles were not an option (something next generation probably would have covered). Then…"

February 24: On This Day in Sci Fi History

As I've mentioned many times, I was a slow convert to Syfy's updated Battlestar Galactica.  The chief problem I had with it initially was that I thought the pacing on the original miniseries was just plain awful: as it turned out, I watched it on DVD when it was released, and I found that it played better without…See More

"I believe it was Carl Sagan who came up with the "houseplant analogy". That was one of the reasons he didn't care much for STAR TREK (As he stated in his book "Broca's Brain"). He was just too much of a scientist to…"

"Hey, just because a guy is older, doesn't mean he's out of shape! Look at Kirk and Kruge's fight in THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK a few years later!"

Leland Frame replied to Steve Emirzian's discussion Doomsday Machine questions
"I don't know if the Constellation's shuttles were in any shape to fly, after all the ship had taken a hell of a beating, and even If the shuttles were intact, there may have been no power to the bay doors. Also, It probably would have…"
