Ramses Class (2366)

Since there was no need for large warships, only few starships of the Akira class were built at first. However, a few years prior to the battle of Wolf 359 Starfleet began construction of a new type of starship instead that could serve as escort and light warship, the Ramses class. Unlike other starships the Ramses class has a small bow module that includes the bridge, the officers' quarters and a small scientific department. Battle stations are distributed throughout the ship in order to reduce vulnerability. In addition, a number of redundant systems are installed, e.g. a second independent impulse reactor and EPS. The Ramses class features foldable warp nacelles for optimum warp field geometry adaptation. With a maximum speed of Warp 9.92 these starships were the fastest of the fleet until the Intrepid class was introduced. 29 units have been completed so far. The Defiant can be regarded as a competitive design. However, while the weapon systems of the Defiant class are more advanced, the Ramses class is superior with respect to non-military assignments. Like many other vessels, several starships of the Ramses class are undergoing repairs after the Dominion War, and they receive the latest attack and defense technology, including multiphasic shields and quantum torpedoes.
