Tanganyika Class (2334)



The light cruisers of the Tanganyika class fit into the gap between the heavy cruisers of the Ambassador and Excelsior classes and the frigates of the New Orleans class, for instance. At the time they were first commissioned the Tanganyika-class ships were the fastest in the fleet with a maximum velocity of Warp 9.4. The Tanganyika class has two shuttle bays which usually hold 23 shuttlecrafts, three more than the larger Excelsior class. Exploration and securing the Federation borders in the Alpha and Beta Quadrant are among the primary assignments of this ship class. Some ships were also employed for science missions in remote space regions. 23 ships were commissioned until 2357, and proved to be very reliable. Most of the ships are currently being equipped with multilayer shields and quantum torpedoes.
