Design History

The Luna-class was designed by Dr. Xin Ra-Havreii, it was conceived initially for scientific exploration of the Gamma Quadrant (Its design beginning in the year following the discovery of the Bajoran Wormhole) The project was later sidelined by the impending threat from the Dominion (and Starfleet’s desire to focus on more defense orientated starships) and wasn’t restarted until the cessation of hostilities and Starfleet was once again able to focus on more scientific endeavors.

After a lengthy design and testing program the Luna-class was introduced into Starfleet in 2378, and in keeping with its original design brief of deep space exploration the class is fitting with some of the most advanced scientific equipment and state of the art propulsion technology. While the Luna class is capable of defending itself, being fitted with the most advanced defense technology Starfleet has to offer, its mission profile is geared toward science, this is reflected in its armaments and its compliment of auxiliary craft.

The pod on the dorsal of the Luna-Class houses not only dedicated probe launchers, but the most advanced sensor suite fitted to any federation vessel to date.

It is hoped that the Luna class will be able to pick up where the century old Excelsior Class will leave off at the end of its service life, that of a long distance explorer capable of long term deep space assignments that will push forward the boundaries of the Federations knowledge.

Aerowing Runabout

The AeroWing Runabout docks to a port on the ventral surface of the saucer section. It is possible that later variants of the class may be fitted with a newer class of ship, but no new design for the Luna Class has gotten past the drawing board to date.
