With 25 new vessels being turned out a year since 2365, the pride of the Fleet
is the Akira Class Heavy Cruiser. New vessels off the line sport a dozen attack craft in its throughdeck hangar and fifteen
torpedo tubes , making the Akira Class the most lethal fighting vessel ever to serve in the Federation, more so than the Prometheus
Class Tactical Assault Cruiser and the new Defiant Class Escort vessels. Fast, maneuverable, and sturdy, sixteen ships alone
were lost to the Dominion War.
In 2362 the Idaho Variant of the Eagle Class was developed, which can carry over twice
the fighter compliment and delivers Starfleet planetary assault ships. However, the Akira has proven over and over in simulations
that capital ship power always wins out over fighter attack capabilities. This philosophy was enhanced during the Battle for
DS9 during the Dominion War, when wave after wave of Peregrine attack fighters were annihilated by Dominion cruiser formations.
The Akira's heavy armament, defensive armor, and sheer mass mark it as the preferred ship of the line of the Federation Starfleet.
Presently, one hundred and five are serving throughout Federation Space, and no end is presently scheduled in the production
life of the Akira Class.
With the first Cardassian war beginning, Starfleet ordered new weapons designs to be tested
and new ships to be built. The Akira Class was one of the first ships to be fitted with the new systems being tested. These
included the rapid -fire photon torpedo launchers, the Type X phaser banks, and the starship separation system.
prototype photon torpedo launchers were located only in the aft weapons module in case of a malfunction in the rapid injection
system, protecting key systems such as the computer core, and more importantly, the warp core from danger of an internal explosion.
If a malfunction occurs, the torpedo will detonate inside the ship.
Compared with the Active production vessels, the
Separation sequence was very different, seen by the designers as more of a escape option rather than two separate
functional starships. This is shown in the design that the main bridge is located on the saucer, with no bridge in the Stardrive
section. The drive section could be controlled from main engineering if necessary.
The tests of the new systems proved successful, especially in the rapid-fire photon
launchers and a forth launcher was added into the saucer section as currently seem.
The Akira-class starship is classified as an Light Cruiser starship. It
is designed for deep-space exploration and defensive missions. Its advanced armament also make it a formidable warship. It
includes the new Type-XII phasers and Mark-X quantum torpedoes in addition to photon torpedoes and Tricobalt explosives.
Akira utilizes a new, more efficient warp design that allows it to safely travel at warp speeds without damaging subspace.
It also features the bio-circuitry and gel packs developed and refined in the Intrepid-class starships.
the Borg began an invasion of the Federation and a Borg cube set a direct course for Sector 001, Earth. Four Akira-class
starships, including the USS Akira and the USS Thunderchild NCC-63549, were part of Admiral Hayes' fleet. Along
with the new Sovereign-class USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E, they were instrumental in stopping the Borg vessel from
assimilating Earth. They also played a major part in the Dominion war in 2374.
Different modules available for rollbar pod:
Weapons Module - It contains, 3
Quantum, 4 Photon, and 1 Tri-Cobalt Torpedo Launchers. It has 450 Photon, 300 Quantum, and 12 Tri-Cobalt Torpedoes.
Module - The Habitat Module is used when transporting colonists or troops. It has room for 500 people and their belongings.
Transport Module - This is a very mission-specific module. It has room for 300 Ground Troops, a command HQ, and a subspace
relay with Starfleet Command.
Medical Triage Module - This very useful module is a completely sealed off hospital.
It has operating rooms, and ICU, medical labs, and it all runs off its own power, thus minimizing the risk of spread of infectious
Shield Module - A heavily armored module in itself, it includes extra shield generators, and metaphasic shield
generators, thus insuring the ship con go almost anywhere freely.
Cargo Module - The Cargo Module is just that. It
is big and bulky, but it adds and extra 100,000 metric tons to the cargo capacity of the ship.
Diplomatic module -
For special operations, this small module is attached. It has quarters for 50 people, negotiating rooms, and a small entertainment
center. It is designed to be a neutral area where negotiations can be staged.
Science Module - The Module itself is
nothing more then a big bundle of sensors with a hull and connects Gamma welded to it. It makes a science ship's sensor array
look like a tricorder.
