02 December
Construction starts on the U.S.S. "Decatur" (NCC-2500) strike cruiser, the first Class One starship with LN-64 linear warp drive. The ship is laid down at Cosmadyne Corporation, Boston Shipyards, Earth [SotF, FRS, SsD].

About this time, Spock prepares to study for Kolinahr on Vulcan. He hangs two of Zar's paintings in his room. Spock's mother notices them and inquires about the artist. Spock tells her about Zar [TOS #39].

The "Pearl" class mobile repair facility enters service to replace the "Newport News" class facility which was not capable of rapid deployment or housing larger ships. Unlike the earlier facility, the "Pearl" facility is designed to travel under its own power at warp 6 and has enough internal bay capacity to hold no fewer than two "Constitution" class heavy cruisers. An asset in forward military operations, the facilities carry complements of 220 crew and 140 passengers, with warp 8 capacity. This ability to keep ships operational was decisive during the Four Years War with the "Newport News" class facilities. The "Pearl" class also features the ability to actually manufacture almost all components needed to keep warships in repair and is normally accompanied by several freighters and 18 shuttlecraft [FASA].

Starbase Command currently administers a total of 28 starbases, 17 deep space stations, 741 outposts and monitor stations, with a total complement in the area of 800,000. Seven Star Fleet Academies distributed throughout Federation space support a permanent faculty of 14,038 and a student population of 85,397 (2260 survey). Two Star Fleet headquarters, one located in the astrographic center of Federation space and the other in the Terran city of San Francisco, together house a permanent population of 18,500 [EOM].

The "Gagarin" (NCC-630) class research vessel is authorized for con- struction. The ship will have warp 8 capacity, a crew of 111, and 2 phaser emplacements. At least 93 ships of this group will be built (NCC-600- NCC-692) with two additional proposed ships. This small Class II science/ research platform will lead a long service life alongside her numerous off- shoots and upgrades, notably the "Garneau" class survey vessel (crew of 78 and 6 phasers) and "Komarov" class superscout--all possessing the same lead ship number NCC-630--and the "Glenn" class survey vessel (crew of 220 but having a maximum warp of 6 and only 4 shuttlecraft). Later vessels in the "Gagarin" series might be later downgraded to the "Darwin" (NCC-652) class scout vessels (a matter of severing their secondary hulls). In the 24th Century, the "Sagan" (NCC-20000) and "Oberth" classes will be based on the same general design [JRM2, FASA, LOR, SFD, SfP, GCP,

[reference stardate 2/1306]

The L-13A "K'el ri'anda" ("Dangerous Fat Man") class battleships enter service in the Klingon fleet. This, the first attempt by Klingon ship designers to construct a battleship, is no better in combat than some of the existing cruisers and frigates. The battleship carries a complement of 1,048 crewmembers and 392 troops with warp 6 capacity [FASA].

The Klingon K-6C class gunboats enter service. This "Administrator" class ship has more maneuverability, better than double the firepower, 50% more efficient shields, and its superstructure is capable of taking twice as much damage than her predecessor K-6A class vessel [FASA].

13 February (stardate 7912.04)
New Star Fleet uniforms are issued. Class B duty uniform colors now represent rank groupings: pale blue gray for senior officers' ranks, beige for junior officers' ranks, and brown for non-commissioned rat- ings. This color scheme is effective only for Class B uniforms. Class C and D uniform colors vary, while the color scheme of Class A dress uniforms becomes a gray green/white combination with the return of epaulet shoulder bars. Background colors on insignia and epaulets now reflect Star Fleet corps attachment and are greatly diversified. In addition, all uniforms outside of specific worksuit classes feature perscan biomonitor "buckle" emplacements. These new uniforms are materialized directly on the wearer while standing in a combination sonic shower/clothing fabricator. The Erati CMA (Clothing Materialization Apparatus) is installed aboard all new fleet vessels and shore establishments [FRS, ST-TMP].

March [reference stardate 2/1309]
The "Aaken" class freighter U.S.S. "Mundy" is found adrift near Starbase 21. The vessel's onboard life support systems are operating but there are no crewmembers aboard. The bridge area shows signs of a struggle, but nearly all computer files are lost with no recorded data to reveal what happened. The last entry in the Captain's Log, from about four months earlier, makes no mention of any emergency or possible danger. When the cargo hold is breached, it is found to contain millions of live tribbles, living on the food produced by a synthesizer that had somehow been left on. The "Tribble Ship," as it came to be called, is taken into Starbase 21 where it is learned that it had been stolen two years earlier [FASA].

The "Angueira" (NCC-6100?) class hospital ship is authorized. One of the first new ship classes based upon the "Gagarin" class, this ship has warp 8 capacity, a complement of 122, and minimal armament (2 phasers).

On her maiden voyage, the "Larson" class destroyer U.S.S. "Sheridan" (NCC-4463) experiences a critical overload in her warp drive system. All backup systems fail to correct the problem. It is decided to jettison the engine pod due to an uncontrolled matter-antimatter mix but the systems used to eject the engine also fail resulting in the total destruction of the ship. Only three crew members in a shuttlecraft survive [FASA].

The Z-4C "Deathgame" defense outpost enters service in the Klingon Empire [FASA].

20 April
The old style Star Fleet uniforms are withdrawn from service, including special purpose anti-exposure and environmental suits [URM].

A Klingon L-13A battleship escorted by six D-11Ds attacks a group of Romulan ships near the Triangle. The Romulan force consisting of a Type 1 V-6 ("Gallant Wing") class cruiser and three Type 7 T-2 ("Death Talon") class destroyers. The Klingon commander, confident with his new ship, presses an attack, only to find the Romulan cruiser his equal. After several exchanges of fire, the Klingon force suffers the loss of three D-11s, and the L-13 sustains serious damage. The Romulan cruiser receives moderate damage and one destroyer is eliminated. The Klingons, fearing the loss of the battleship, begin to withdraw from the battle. The Romulan commander decides to counterattack the retreating Klingons. The huge battleship disables another of the Romulan destroyers. At this point both sides disengage; the Klingon ships withdraw to Klingon space while the Romulan commander returns to the area of the battle and salvages what he can of the ships, taking in tow a disabled D-11. This skirmish proves to the Klingon Imperial Command that the L-13 needs improvements. The B model of this battleship will not be successful during its tests and will therefore not be put into production [FASA].

The "Hippocrates" (NCC-4600) class medical frigate is authorized. Basically a large-scale "Angueira" class hospital ship based upon the frigate design rather than the "Gagarin" design, this class will reportedly consist of 74 ships (NCC-4600-NCC-4673). The "Hippocrates" will carry a standard complement of 655, possess warp 9.2 capacity, and 12 standard phaser emplacements for armament. Ships' complement may be reduced and warp increased in the class' later years, and possibly her registry altered (NCC-1850?) [JRM2, LOR, SFD].

The U.S.S. "Orka" (NCC-100) class gunboat is authorized. This class vessel is a modified "Gagarin" class research ship built for high maneuver- ability to fill a defensive role. The "Orka" utilizes 3 nacelles (yielding warp 8.8 maximum speed), carries a complement of 75, and an ordnance of 2 megaphasers (4 fore/aft firing cannons) and 2 standard phasers. Small and easy to construct, the class will total 85 vessels (NCC-100-NCC-184). In later years of their service, the "Orka" class may be converted to the "Clarke" (NCC-100) class superscouts/diplomatic clippers with 6 phasers, warp 10 capacity, and complements of 61 [JRM2, LOR, SFD, SfP].

The U.S.S. "Enterprise" (NCC-1701) heavy cruiser is recommissioned. This, yet another variation on the original "Constitution" design, and the second Class I ship with linear (LN-64) warp drive, incorporates all of the latest advances in Star Fleet technology: 18 warp-powered phasers, two photon torpedo banks, warp 12 capacity, a cloaking device, new deflector shields and screens, Duotronic II computers, and a complement of 500. This starship class will consist of eight vessels, all rebuilt heavy cruisers. Possessing the best warp dynamics of all Class I starships, the "Enterprise" class starship's speed, long range, impressive ordnance, and the habitability gained from its size, make them a natural choice for extended exploration missions throughout the unknown frontiers of the U.F.P. Treaty Zone. On stardate 7067.42, the U.S.S. "Enterprise" will verify the existence of the Klingon D-8 "K't'inga" class warship "Losu" ("Cold," KL 40200) [FRS, SsD, SotF, FSF, LOR, SFD].

The first of two five-year missions of the new U.S.S. "Enterprise" begins with Admiral James Kirk in command [FRS].

June [reference stardate 2/1806]
The Mark II "Andor" class cruiser enters service in Star Fleet. This class will be the only operational missile cruisers in the Fleet, their overall design originating from Andorian design teams contracted to create a cruiser with photon torpedoes as its main weapons. The "Andor" class will form the core of all squadrons in the famed "Blue Fleet" becoming an integral part of front line forces for Star Fleet [FASA].

The "Hensley" (NCC-4300) class heavy transport/tug is authorized for construction. Unlike the "Ptolemy" class, the "Hensley" will be able to carry up to six transport containers by manipulating its warp field to cover the additional containers, but with a reduction of top speed--yet possessing double the towing capacity while maintaining the same power consumption. 96 ships are proposed for this class (NCC-4300-NCC-4395) and reportedly 70 ships will be constructed. Each transport/tug will have a complement of 354 (including 100 pas- sengers), warp 9 capacity, 12 phaser emplacements, 2 tow pads, and a heavy duty tractor beam designed for additional range and tonnage [JRM].

The U.S.S. "Jester" (NCC-200) class light corvette is authorized. Another "Gagarin" class variant, this starship is built to serve as an armed light escort and patrol vessel. She carries a complement of only 79, has warp 8.5 capacity, and is armed with an "Avenger" class weapons pod (4 torpedo tubes: 2 fore, 2 aft) along with 2 standard phaser emplacements. Cheap to construct, at least 82 (NCC-200-NCC-281) vessels will be constructed, out of an initially proposed 89. In their later years, the "Jester" class will probably be upgraded to the "Asmodeus" (NCC-200) class light corvette configuration: almost externally identical with a slightly larger comp- lement (86 crew members), greater warp capacity (warp 8.6 max), and greater ordnance (6 standard phasers) [JRM2, LOR, SfD, SFP].
