Introduction

I remember when I was first invited to join this ship a little over a year ago by our CO; he told me our mission was to transport the President of the United Federation of Planets in a Prometheus Class Cruiser. I accepted the invitation and joined this ship and crew, but to be honest I hadn’t heard of a Prometheus Cruiser so looked into it and found it was a very powerful ship. It has the latest and greatest technology available and packs a very big punch and the amazing Multi-Vector attack mode that has countless possibilities.

But my interest was piqued and thus started this over a year long research project on this class of ship. In this manual we’ll cover the armaments, defensive systems, and support systems of this vessel and how it all interacts to make the ship as great as it is. We’ll also learn some its remarkable history, to learn where it came from and why it’s needed.

I‘ve enjoyed Star Trek for many years and read a lot of books, mostly from an engineering standpoint. I was an aviation hydraulics technician in the United States Navy, and now for a job I service and repair all types of aircraft carrier materials handling equipment; cranes and forklifts mostly.

So now that I have the ship operations down my research is far from over. My next endeavor will be to figure out all the tasks and maintenance needed, who does what and when so to speak, things like preventive maintenance, damage control, and fire fighting; the little things that keep a ship in fighting shape.

What you will learn as I have learned is we have an AWESOME piece of weaponry; it’ll take us to the fight and bring us back to tell the tale. For our writers in the crew, all this information should help with your story lines. And hopefully I’ve included enough pictures for you. If not there are plenty of them on the web.

Something else I found out is that there are a lot of variances with the information about the Prometheus, so I put together this information so as a crew we could be on the same page so to speak.

Acknowledgements

I have to thank any and all who wrote or created the pictures, models, and information throughout the WEB, as well as all of the fan fiction Trek sites where there’s a lot of imagination and gifted artists, plus STARFLEET the International Star Trek Fan Association and their support links.

I have to thank my Commanding Officer MGN Gary Hollifield, Jr. for the invite and letting me be the Chief Engineer aboard his ship. And of course a Great Big Thanks to Gene Roddenberry for giving all of us his dream of Star Trek.

One note before beginning this manual: I’m not going to get into the power requirements for any systems, there was just way to many numbers to make an accurate assessment of these requirements. If any power input or output numbers are mentioned it’s because it’s from a known good source such as the Starfleet Advanced Design Bureau (www.asdb.net) or similar. If you need these numbers pick a site and use theirs because you can pick a dozen and have that many different answers.

May all who read this have Fair Winds, Following Seas, and a star to guide by.

Ships History and Development

When the USS Odyssey was destroyed in late 2370, war with the Dominion looked inevitable. TACFLEET took a frank assessment of their position and the results did not bring them any comfort. Dominion polaron weapons had easily penetrated the Odyssey’s shields and the few times the ship could target and hit the Jem`Hadar vessel, even the type 10 phasers were surprisingly ineffective. TACFLEET knew that the Federation needed a vessel designed for one purpose- To hunt down and destroy any known hostile starship.

TACFLEET also knew that such a vessel would seriously upset the balance of power within the Alpha Quadrant. It was decided to develop, construct and test the new vessel in secret. TACFLEET provided the funding to Star Fleet Intelligence who could provide the secrecy needed.

Boeing-Mitsubishi’s Phantom Works was named prime contractor, as they had experience in building “Black” projects for Starfleet. There was some debate about what to classify the ship. Battlecruiser was considered but it was worried this might “tip the hand.” Instead, the long discussed Tactical Cruiser nomenclature was assigned. There has yet to be a design as radical as the Prometheus, which introduces the concept of “Multi-Vector Assault Mode” to starship design. The Prometheus can split into 3 fully warp capable tactical platforms that can then attack the target from 3 different angles, or while one section gets “High Priority Passengers” out of harms way, at high warp, the other 2 sections could engage the hostiles.

Each section of the ship has its own bridge for command and control in MVAM. The main bridge is on the primary or saucer section and the secondary and tertiary sections have battles bridges similar to the Defiant class bridge. Command of each section would be divided between the senior officers assigned, normally CO=Primary, XO=Secondary and either OPS or Engineering=Tertiary. This is not set in stone and may be changed at the discretion of the CO or Mission parameters.

The Prometheus class employs all the latest in Federation automation systems and therefore requires a markedly small crew; the ship can be operated with as few as 4 officers. The system installed on the Prometheus is the M-16 Tri-core Bio-Neural Gel Pack-Isolinear 3 with LCARS interface software. The layout is Distributed processors and distributed core for faster processing and also gives each section of the ship its own core for MVAM.

Facilities on board allow for the embarkation and training of Marines and other ground forces, as such the ship is a natural for assault and interdiction duties since we always have combat troops aboard, also handy for the President when he needs something handled discreetly.

The Prometheus is the first ship since the Peacekeeper class to mount 4 primary nacelles and unique to any vessel in mounting 3 separate warp cores driving a total of 6 nacelles. In normal flight mode or docked mode only the 2 directly feeding the upper and lower nacelle pairs are in operation, only when the ship is in Multi-vector (MVAM) does the third core, mounted between the 2 impulse engines come online to feed the 2 extendable nacelles located on the top and underside of the primary hull.

The 2 cores and 4 nacelles located in the secondary and tertiary sections, when in docked mode resulted in the fastest speed ever attained by ANY Federation starship-a stupendous warp 9.999.

The ship is rated for a steady cruise speed of warp 9.9, easily making it the fastest ship in the fleet. Maximum speed has not been calculated as of yet.

The Prometheus is equipped with all the latest Federation weaponry and defensive systems, starting with 14 type Xll phaser strip arrays and 5 quantum burst fire launchers; These are when the ship in docked mode. When the ship separates into MVAM there are 18 type Xll phaser arrays and 7 quantum burst fire launchers available.

Her defensive systems include Auto-Modulating Regenitive shield arrays. This unit is an upgraded version from the Sovereign and Intrepid classes; ablative hull armor type 3 and a regentive hull matrix, upgraded from the Intrepid class, gives her unparalleled hull strength. Regenitive shields absorb the incoming fire and incorporates it to another shield layer, while the Ablative armor absorbs the weapon impact and disperses it to decrease its damage impact. This makes the Prometheus the most powerful ship in known space, even when compared to the Federations mighty Akira class battle cruiser.

As you can see, Starfleet used only the best of its equipment on the Prometheus, using systems proven in earlier designs and configurations and packing them in a relatively small package and then enhancing those technologies with further upgrades and capabilities that surpassed even what they had in mind.

Accidental Live Fire Exercise

During her maiden trails; Romulan agents of the Tal Shiar stole the prototype killing the small crew during her maiden flight from Deep Space 5 to Utopia Planitia. Through help from the EMH’s of the Prometheus and Voyager the ship was recovered but not before she had heavily damaged several Starfleet vessels; a Nebula class, which some say was destroyed but that has not been

confirmed; Heavily damaged an Akira class battle cruiser

vessels while being attacked by Romulans and the only command and control were 2 EMH’s and yet still managed to destroyed a Romulan D’Deridex class Battle cruiser. Although she was heavily damaged herself, she was able to be returned to Utopia Planitia for repairs and further test flights before commissioning in 2376 at Beta Antares Shipyards. It was during this incident that EMH from Voyager made contact with Starfleet and informed Starfleet of the Voyagers status

Ships Aux Craft

The Prometheus has 2 primary shuttle bays just like the Intrepid, in the secondary section of the ship. We also have a large hanger facility in the tertiary section of the ship to support a full Marine squadron. Since aux craft can change depending on mission parameters I’ve decided to just give you an aux craft chart showing what’s available to us for this duty.

As you can see we have a lot of craft to choose from, and the next figure is of the Delta Flyer 2 this a great addition to any aux craft fleet. I didn’t cover the Marine Aerospace craft, their in a league of their own and with a full squadron on board, I feel for anyone who tries to commit any aggression in our patrol area, we in one ship bring a large force to bear.

Remember this ship is designed to be adaptable and can be configured for many different mission parameters. And of course this being a fictional ship a little imagination can go a long way. I just wanted everyone to know what we have to work with.

Amendments will be incorporated to the back of this manual as they are approved by the Commanding Officer. Crew Members should inform their department officer for input and submission to the CO.
