Pacifica Class (2350)

The Pacifica class was intended as a supplement to the aged Excelsior class. With about the same size the Pacifica-class ships are more powerful and faster. The warp nacelles have the same appearance as those of the Tenochtitlan class, but have undergone a complete redesign. The construction of the primary hull is also similar, however, it can be detached and operate separately with its own impulse drive. It was originally planned to equip the saucer with a warp drive or at least a warp sustainer, but this would have required a completely new design of the saucer section and would have prolonged the development time and increased the costs. Instead, an extensive scientific equipment was installed. Hence, the starships were commissioned as science vessels in contrast to their original assignment. For this purpose the Pacifica class also has an exchangeable sensor pod. After 13 units production was discontinued in favor of the larger and better equipped Nebula class.
