The current flagship of the United Federation of Planets, the U.S.S. Enterprise-E, is a vessel of a new class and type, the Sovereign-class Heavy Explorer.The most powerful and technologically sophisticated starship ever created by Starfleet (except perhaps for the U.S.S. Prometheus), it represents the pinnacle of over 200 years of advances in starship design and technology.

 

The Sovereign-class was designed following the Battle of Wolf 359, where Starfleetís staggering losses forced it to approach starship construction with a new appreciation for the defense aspects of its mission.A task force composed of personnel from the Office of Strategic Operations, the Theoretical Propulsion Group, Spaceframe Design, and the Tactical Operations Group labored for years in conjunction with Starfleet Research and Development to create the technologies needed for a new, more powerful, group of ships.The results included the pulse phaser cannon, ablative hull armor, bio-neural computer systems, the quantum torpedo, and many new spaceframe designs.These systems were incorporated into the new ships of the Perimeter Defense Directive and, in many cases, into the Sovereign-class as well.

 

Incorporating advances in spaceframe design and ship mission conceptualization, the ASDB created a hull for the Sovereign-class which was sleek and powerful, like an arrow shot into the wilds by an errant explorer or a dart aimed at the hearts of the Federationís enemies.Working from the baseline of the Galaxy-class Explorer, they lengthened the frame while reducing its height, thus decreasing its profile to enemy attack.The saucer and Engineering hull merged into each other seamlessly, with no saucer separation feature since this ship would carry few, if any, civilian personnel.Rather than follow the lead of the Defiant-, Saber-, and Steamrunner-classes, which draw the vulnerable warp nacelles into the body of the ship, the Sovereign Design Group chose to employ a traditional nacelle pylon configuration to improve the shipís warp profile.

 

The Sovereign-classís weaponry is similarly advanced.Its 12 phaser arrays incorporate new, experimental Type XII ship phaser emitters, making them the most powerful phasers ever mounted on a starship.Its three torpedo launchers fire the new quantum torpedoes.

 

Following a successful launch of the testbed U.S.S. Sovereign in 3/05, Starfleet began work on the first fully functional Sovereign-class vessel, the U.S.S. Enterprise-E.Two years later that ship launched under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, and so far shows all signs of living up to, and even surpassing, the glorious record established by the ships to bear her name previously.
