The recent number of Starfleet designs had called for larger, more expensive and time-consuming vessels capable of performing a number of roles. The Intrepid-class was designed to counter this way of thinking and return to the formation of smaller, faster, more effective starships that could continue the exploration of the galaxy. The Intrepid-class used many unique designs, among them the first ship of its size to be capable of planetary landing and flight. This class also introduced the bioelectric gel-packs: a new way of transmitting computer data quickly and efficiently. Although not designed for heated combat the Intrepid-class is designed to take a considerable beating and still be able to flee the scene for help. Ten ships of this line have been built and another eighty-nine are proposed.

One of Starfleet’s most advanced designs to date, the Intrepid-class Light Explorer comes equipped with a host of sophisticated technological advances designed to help it perform its mission, and to give it the effectiveness of ships much larger and less maneuverable than it. These include: multi-spectral shields, bio-neural computers, special SIF reinforcement grids along the hull, an auxiliary deflector, and an advanced warp propulsion system. Supplemented by a “spare” warp core (actually a sufficient collection of parts to build a replacement core if necessary).

The Intrepid can attain extremely high speeds not only because of its advanced warp core, but also due to its variable geometry warp nacelles, which allow the ship to adjust its warp field for maximum efficiency. The vessel’s streamlined shape also allows it to project an unusually efficient warp field. To ensure that the ship does not experience a catastrophic warp speed collision, it has two navigational deflectors – a main one on the forward end of the engineering hull, and a much smaller auxiliary deflector on the forward dorsal end of the saucer section.

The Intrepid’s bridge module can separate from the main hull, and has its own maneuvering thrusters so that the crew can steer it.

Since the class’s primary mission profiles involve exploration and scientific experimentation, it possesses an extensive complement of laboratories and scientific facilities. Each ship has two laboratory slots, which are particularly advanced; Starfleet’s engineers decide which labs to place in those slots (and thus which scientific tasks the ship excels at) when building each vessel. Most laboratories are on decks seven and eight.

The captain’s yacht attached to the Intrepid is a special ship known as an “Aeroshuttle.”  Patterned in part after the Danube-class run-about, it is slightly larger and more maneuverable than a typical yacht.

Although not intended as a front-line combat vessel, the Intrepid has powerful tactical systems.  These include multiple phaser arrays and four high-yield torpedo launchers. 

Most intriguingly of all, the Intrepid has atmospheric and planetfall capability – making it the largest Starfleet vessel with those abilities.  When it lands, four large articulated “legs” emerge from the ventral side of the engineering hull to support it.
