BBs Ranks

TREKCORE > OMEGASECTOR BBS > BBs Ranks

The Omega Sector rank system is a unique and somewhat complicated one that departs from the traditional rank system of most Star Trek centric bulletin boards. Rather than use the fairly common Starfleet Officer ranks, we've created a system that utilizes a variety of the vessels of Star Trek. How exactly did we develop the system? That is where the 'somewhat complicated' comes in.

If you where to rank ships throughout Trek from multiple time periods either on chronology or technical capability alone, you would come up with a fairly flawed system. However, by combining the two you get a considerably more accurate picture. Which is just what we have done. This page not only lays out that system for you to quickly and easily see, but provides some brief information about each rank to help explain it as well.

Another reason for this page is to serve as a guide for those who choose to display their Omega Sector Fleet. What is an Omega Sector Fleet? A small collection of rank images displayed in an individuals signature, designed to serve as a place for individuals to showcase either their favorite, or most powerful ranks. An individual user may choose to display three of their past rank images - ranks they have already held - including or up to their current rank - side by side in their Omega Sector Signature. Substitutions of either alternate images of an Omega Sector Rank ship, or use of ships not within the Omega Sector ranks, is not permitted.

The 'proper' layout for these ranks consist of one rank image (complete with it's UBB code as seen below each rank further down this page), followed by a single space, the second (or middle) rank image, another single space, and then the third and final rank image. Above those images, designed to line up exactly with those three rank images in 'proper' configuration, is the following animated banner:

The Phoenix Identification: The Phoenix; Prototype Warp Ship
Affiliation: Human
Time Frame: 2063
Advantages: First Warp Capable Human Vessel
Rank: 0 to 25 Posts

On April 5, 2063, this vessel - Earth's first warp capable ship - was launched from Bozeman, Montana by it's creator, Doctor Zefram Cochrane. Cochrane himself piloted the simple craft on it's sole space flight that morning at approximately 11 AM (local time) and successfully broke the warp barrier. This accomplishment not only ushered in a new era for humanity, but captured the attention of a passing alien ship, which then altered it's course to make peaceful first contact.

NX-Class Starship Identification: NX-Class Starship
Affiliation: Human, Starfleet
Time Frame: 2150s - 2160s
Advantages: First Warp 5 Capable Human Vessel
Rank: 25 to 50 Posts

In the early days of human space exploration, the NX-Class represented the first true opportunity for humanity to explore the galaxy. The first ship of it's kind, the Enterprise NX-01, made monumental strides in expanding the role of the human race into the interstellar community. Equipped with the most advanced technology available to humanity at the time, the NX-01 under Captain Jonathan Archer was key to both the defense of Earth from the Xindi threat, as well as the formation of the United Federation of Planets.

Andorian Kumari-Class Identification: Kumari-Class
Affiliation: Andorian Imperial Guard
Time Frame: 2140s - 2180s
Advantages: Tractor Beam, Particle Beam Weapons
Rank: 50 to 100 Posts

Superior in comparison to the most advanced human vessels of the time, the Kumari-Class warship was the pinacle of the Andorian fleet. Capable of reaching speeds above Warp 5, and equipped with such advanced technologies as particle beam weapons and tractor beams, this class of warship was named for the first ice cutter to circumnavigate Andor. In 2154, the prototype Kumari herself was commanded by Imperial Guard Commander Shran.

Vulcan D'Kyr-Class Identification: D'Kyr-Class
Affiliation: Vulcan High Command
Time Frame: 2140s - 2200s
Advantages: Warp 7 Capable, Deflector Shields
Rank: 100 to 150 Posts

Of all the vessels in the Vulcan fleet, the D'Kyr-Class combat cruiser was easily the most advanced and most often utilized by the Vulcan High Command. Though similarly equipped to the rival Andorian Kumari-Class in terms of weapons and composition, the D'Kyr-Class was superior when it came to both speed and defensive systems, capable of speeds up to warp 7 and equipped with deflector shields at a time when only hull polarization was common.

Daedalus-Class Starship Identification: Daedalus-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2160s - 2190s
Advantages: Warp 7 Capable, Deflector Shields
Rank: 150 to 200 Posts

Many changes and advances came upon the birth of the United Federation of Planets. The Daedalus-Class Federation starship was just one of them. As the NX-Class was retired, the Daedalus-Class took on the mantle of interstellar representation and exploration on behalf of the newly formed Federation. The first vessels to bare USS and NCC, the Daedalus-Class was also the first ship constructed with cooperation and shared technology between the various allies - such as Vulcan, Human, and Andorian - that made up the Federation.

Romulan Bird-of-Prey Identification: Bird-of-Prey
Affiliation: Romulan Star Empire
Time Frame: 2260s - 2300s
Advantages: Cloaking Device, Plasma Torpedo Launcher
Rank: 200 to 250 Posts

What the Romulan Bird-of-Prey lacks in versatility, she makes up for in stealth and fire power ten fold. Equipped with a cloaking device, a device which the Romulans claim to have invented - though the claim can not be substantiated - this vessel can be rendered, for all intents and purposes, invisible to both sensors and the naked eye. However, this massive advantage comes at an equally massive consumption of the ships power supply. Additionally, her single weapons system - a sole Plasma Torpedo Launcher - can inflict more damage in one shot than most ships can with their entire weapons array.

Constitution-Class Starship Identification: Constitution-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2240s - 2260s
Advantages: 5-year Mission Capability, Advanced Mission Facilities
Rank: 250 to 300 Posts

The legendary Constitution-Class starship served as both the backbone of Starfleet, and as the most advanced class of Federation starship, for the better part of a half century. Equipped for long term 5-year missions without support, unheard of crew accommodations, and state-of-the-art scientific and diplomatic capabilities, the Constitution-Class represented the best the Federation had to offer. Of course the most famed vessel of this class was the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, which was made legend by her equally legendary Captain and Crew.

Klingon Battle Cruiser Identification: Klingon Battle Cruiser
Affiliation: Klingon Empire
Time Frame: 2260s - 2300s
Advantage: Cloaking Device
Rank: 300 to 350 Posts

The classic and intimidating design of the Klingon Battle Cruiser has survived and been recycled for over a century. The first battle cruiser to use the design was the Vorok-Class of the 2150's. The second, the famed D-7 battle cruiser of the 2240's through 2260's. Finally, the K'tinga-Class of the 2270's through 2290's, of which the Klingon Flagship Kronos One belonged to. Though equipped with cloaks, Klingon Battle Cruisers rarely used them, favoring the bold and intimidating direct approach.

Miranda-Class Starship Identification: Miranda-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2270s - 2280s (Cntd. Service, 2370s)
Advantage: Maneuverability
Rank: 350 to 425 Posts

The versatile and nimble Miranda-Class cruiser was one of the backbones of Starfleet for the better part of a century, serving in a variety of configurations and duties. Originally tasked for border patrol and survey missions, the Miranda-Class evolved to fit Starfleet's ever-changing needs. This adaptablity ensured the class continued operation well into the mid-to-late 24th century. At it's prime in the 2280's the Miranda-Class helped to bridge the gulf between the aging Constitution-Class, and the (then experimental) Excelsior-Class, when neithers fate was certain.

Refit Constitution-Class Starship Identification: Refit Constitution-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2270s - 2290s
Advantage: Firepower, Versatility
Rank: 425 to 500 Posts

Originally the backbone of Starfleet from the 2240s through the 2260s, the Constitution-Class underwent a complete redesign and refit in the 2270s. Still equipped for long term 5-year missions without support, unheard of crew accommodations, and state-of-the-art scientific and diplomatic capabilities, the refit Constitution-Class was a stepping-stone towards future ships such as the Excelsior-Class, and remained a capable part of Starfleet's forces through the 2290s.

Klingon Bird-of-Prey Identification: Bird-of-Prey
Affiliation: Klingon Empire
Time Frame: 2280s - Present
Advantage: Landing Capability, Cloaking Device
Rank: 500 to 600 Posts

Some variant of the Klingon Bird-of-Prey has been in service since the 2150s. Though it was not until the introduction of this particular model in the 2280s that the Bird-of-Prey truly reached it's apex. Capable of atmospheric flight and planetary landings, and equipped with the all-important cloaking device, the Bird-of-Prey can be operated by fewer than a half-dozen personal, or service dozens. The basic design has been re-used in a variety of sizes and scales to keep itself viable through the decades. It's agility and versatility of form and function make it a staple of the Klingon defense forces.

Excelsior-Class Starship Identification: Excelsior-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2280s - Present
Advantage: Advanced Design Capabilities
Rank: 600 to 700 Posts

Designed as a replacement for the aging Constitution-Class of vessels, the Excelsior-Class was originally the test-bed for Starfleet's first (unsuccessful) attempt at transwarp drive. After the failure of that project though, the Excelsior was ushered into active service as the new backbone of the Federation. Her advanced design and system capabilities allowed the Excelsior to serve in that roll longer and with more distinction than and other class of vessel in the history of Starfleet. Though considered an 'old war-horse' by the 2250s, having been surpassed in function by numerous other vessels of various scale, the Excelsior remained the tried-and-true definition of a Starfleet all-purpose vessel for nearly a century, and continues in service to this day.

Constellation-Class Starship Identification: Constellation-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2280s - 2295 (Cntd. Service, 2260s)
Advantage: Maneuverability, 16 Phaser Banks
Rank: 700 to 800 Posts

Like the Miranda-Class, the Constellation-Class helped to bridge the gulf between the Constitution and Excelsior classes of starships. Likewise tasked with scientific and border patrol assignments, the Constellation-Class was a capable and nimble vessel best described as a spit-fire. With a compliment of 16 phaser banks, she was most than capable of holding her own in a hostile situation. It was her sensors and scientific systems though that where the true heart of the Constellation, and allowed her to continue Starfleet's mission of interstellar exploration.

Ambassador-Class Starship Identification: Ambassador-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2230s - 2350s (Cntd. Service)
Advantage: Phaser Arrays
Rank: 800 to 900 Posts

The successor to the Excelsior-Class in design, the Ambassador-Class was a critical stepping-stone in continued evolution of Starfleet explorers. The Ambassador was the first vessel to be fit with phaser arrays over phaser banks. The arrays, distributed in strips of emitters across the hull, allowed for rapid heat-disipation and multi-vector firing arcs that revolutioned Starfleet's old standard defensive weapon. Quicker to recharge, capable of covering a greater area, and less consuming of ship's energy, these arrays would become the standard on Starfleet vessels to follow. Though limitted in production compared to the Excelsior-Class, the Ambassador paved the way for the next generation of Starfleet ships.

Cardassian Galor Identification: Cardassian Galor
Affiliation: Cardassian Union
Time Frame: 2340s - Present
Advantage: High-Power Forward Phaser Bank
Rank: 900 to 1,000 Posts

The flagship of the Cardassian Union, the Galor-Class cruiser were the primary class of warship by the Cardassian Guard during the latter half of the 24th century. The arsenals of Galor-class warships vary, though typically they are armed with numerous phaser arrays. Although decidedly inferior to the Federation's Galaxy-class starships, they proved to be very effective against Miranda-class and other older Federation starships, and capable of holding their own against other opponents such as the Klingons.

Intrepid-Class Starship Identification: Intrepid-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2370s - Present
Advantage: Bio-Neural Computer System, Maximum Warp of 9.975
Rank: 1,000 to 1,200 Posts

Featuring many innovations for her day - including tricyclic input manifolds, variable-geometry pylons, and the first starfleet vessel to incorporate bio-neural gel pack computer systems - the Intrepid-Class boasted the best navigational sensors, and the highest top speed of any Starfleet vessel until the development of the Prometheus-class. Its multi-mission design was backed up by a main computer processor capable of simultaneously accessing 47 million data channels and sustaining 575 trillion calculations per nanosecond. It's smaller size and crew requirements, as well as general purpose capabilities make it a ship adept in any situation.

UBB Code: [img]http://theomegasector.com/style_images/trekcore/folder_team_icons/Intrepid.png[/img]

8472 Bio-Ship Identification: 8472 Bio-Ship
Affiliation: Species 8472
Time Frame: Unknown
Advantage: Bioarmor Hull
Rank: 1,200 to 1,400 Posts

The advanced vesseks utilized by Species 8472 share their unique genetic makeup and adaptability. Literally living organic vessels capable of warp speed, they are heavily armed and shielded against all conventional weapons. Though native to fluidic space, these nimble and lightly manned vessels are able to function as well in the organic matter of fluid space as they are in the vacuum of normal space. They are also equipped to detect the pressure wave created when a vessel crosses into fluidic space. Only photonic warheads equipped with specially modified Borg nanoprobes have been effective against them in combat.

Akira-Class Starship Identification: Akira-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2360s - Present
Advantage: 15 Pulse Fire Torpedo Tubes
Rank: 1,400 to 1,600 Posts

Boasting six type-10 phaser arrays in addition to 15 pulse torpedoe launchers, the Akira-Class is amongst the most heavily armed vessels in all of Starfleet. One of a number of vessels designed for tactical purposes - specifically, to combat the Borg collective - her design harkens back to the early days of Starfleet on the outside, and the most modern times within. Balanced in speed and power, the Akira-Class is able to keep a top speed of Warp 9.8 for a maximum of 12 hours and is capable of carrying a large compliment of auxiliary craft.

Ferengi Marauder Identification: D'Kora-Class Marauder
Affiliation: Ferengi Alliance
Time Frame: 2350s - 2370s (Cntd. Service)
Advantage: Cargo Capacity
Rank: 1,600 to 1,800 Posts

Equipped with a form of energy weapon emitted from the aft of the ship, detectable by a marked power surge prior to discharge, the resulting electromagnetic pulse was capable of weakening the deflector shield power of a Galaxy-class starship, as well as the capability of depleting the fusion generator and batteries by as much as thirty percent in a single discharge. Though at one time believed to be an equal to Starfleet's Galaxy-Class, the Ferengi ability to inovate has left them behind as they pursue profit over power.

Nebula-Class Starship Identification: Nebula-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2350s - Present
Advantage: Adaptable Mission Specific Configuration
Rank: 1,800 to 2,000 Posts

The 'little sister' to the Galaxy-Class, the Nebula-class was designed to serve a more supportive and scientific role compared to the general purpose missions of the Galaxy. Designed using the same athestic scheme, the Nebula features the ability to support a variety of mission-specific modules atop it's superstructure, ranging from added sensor abilities, to enhanced weapons, to cargo accomodations.

Klingon Vor'Cha Class Identification: Vor'Cha Class Battle Cruiser
Affiliation: Klingon Empire
Time Frame: 2340s - Present
Advantage: Cloaking Device, Ground Troops
Rank: 2,000 to 2,500 Posts

The Vor'cha-class attack cruiser was initially limited to missions at the disposal of the Klingon Chancellor and various other ranking officials. The class would quickly become fully integrated into the Klingon Imperial Fleet over the next five years and maintain a strong presence during both the Klingon-Cardassian War and second Federation-Klingon War of 2372-2373, on through the Dominion War and beyond. Capale of supporting a large compliment of ground troops, unlike it's more agile and smaller sibling, the Bird of Prey, the Vor'Cha is the modern equivilant to the classic D-7 or K'Tinga-Class cruisers of the late 2200s.

Galaxy-Class Starship Identification: Galaxy-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2360s - Present
Advantage: Size, Saucer Seperation
Rank: 2,500 to 3,000 Posts

One of the largest and most powerful Federation starships, the Galaxy-Class was designed as both a renaissance and rejuvenation of starship design. Built with an abundance of redundant facilities and specialty labs, they also boasted unique features such as civilian accommodations and school facilities. Conceived of and deployed at a time when nothing seemed beyond humanities reach, these colossal ships where the first equipped with a functional re-integration system allowing the saucer separation ability built into a multitude of prior ships to become a functional alternative in high-risk scenarios. Like many other ships, her greatest strengths would also become her greatest weaknesses, as her large crew requirements would later serve as a resource draining liability in times of conflict. Though many of the class remain in service, her high-profile losses would deter Starfleet from continuing the class long-term.

D'deridex Class Warbird Identification: D'deridex Class Warbird
Affiliation: Romulan Star Empire
Time Frame: 2340s - Present
Advantage: Cloaking Device, Ground Troops, Size
Rank: 3,000 to 3,500 Posts

The D'deridex-class Warbird, classified as a cruiser by Starfleet, was one of the most advanced vessels in the Romulan Star Empire and served as the backbone of the Romulan fleet from the 2260s through late 2270s. Roughly twice the size as a Federation Galaxy-class, these starships where an imposing and intimidating site - though their size contributed to a lower overall maximum speed than her Federation counter part. The primary directed energy weapons array of a Warbird was located in its 'head' and consisted of a disruptor array capable of firing both beams and pulses which also appears to have been shared with a torpedo launcher. Like earlier Romulan ships, D'deridex-class Warbirds were equipped with cloaking devices, which protect them from detection in most evasive situations. The D'Deridex also utilized a forced quantum singularity as a power source.

Defiant-Class Starship Identification: Defiant-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2370s - Present
Advantage: Ablative Armor, Pulse Phaser Cannons
Rank: 3,500 to 4,000 Posts

Officially considered as an escort vessel, the Defiant-class starship is unofficially the first Starfleet 'warship'. The class began development in 2366 as a small, highly-powered, heavily-armed vessel intended to defend the Federation against the Borg. Heavily-armored with 18 centimeters of energy-depleting ablative hull armor, the stripped-down starship incorporates the latest in Starfleet weaponry and defensive technology and was equipped with a class-7 warp drive. Lacking the creature comforts common to the majority of Starfleet ships, such as holodecks, individual crew quarters, and large open spaces, the considerably smaller than normal Defiant-Class is one of the most powerful combat vessels ever constructed. In the only publically acknowledged encounter between a Defiant-Class ship and the Borg Collective, the namesake U.S.S. Defiant proved herself in a trial by fire in direct conflict with a cube during the Second Borg Invasion. One of the first ships amidst the Starfleet task force to be sent against the Cube during that conflict, the vessel was not disabled until 18 hours later.

Dominion Attack Ship Identification: Jem'Hadar Attack Ship
Affiliation: Dominion
Time Frame: 2360s - Present
Advantage: Maneuverability, Phase Polaron Beam
Rank: 4,000 to 4,500 Posts

The back-bone of the Dominion fleet, the Jem'Hadar attack ship is a lean utilitarian craft capable of performing any task to which it is ordered. Requiring no more than a dozen Jem'Hadar and a single Vorta commander to operate, but capable of carrying additional troop compliments, the sturdy and reliable crafts origins are shrouded in mystery, like much of the history of the Dominion. On par in size and strengths with the Federation Defiant-Class, the ships primary weapons system is a phased polaron beam - a weapon thought to be impossible to create by the Alpha Quadrant until it was first encountered in use by the Dominion. Also housing a sophisticated sensor network that employs a polaron scanning method, the Dominion can accurately penetrate most cloaking devices and other stealth shielding.

Prometheus-Class Starship Identification: Prometheus-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2370s - Present
Advantage: MVAM, Regenerative Shields, Albative Armor
Rank: 4,500 to 5,000 Posts

Continuing Starfleet's development of leaner, tactically-centered vessels is the Prometheus-Class. One of the fastest Federation starships ever built, the Prometheus-Class is capable of sustaining warp factor 9.9 for an indefinite period of time. The ship is a pioneer amongst Starfleet ships. The first of her kind built with the ability to separate into multiple strategic smaller vessels for coordinated attacks, the Prometheus allows the craft to become three independent ships, capable of either local of central control. This 'multi-vector assault mode' as it was dubbed, is a strategic break-through that greatly improves the ships battle-field worth. The Prometheus is also home to the first series of auto-regenerative shield generators, enabling the continuous repowering of in-use shield emitters.

Klingon Negh'Var Class Identification: Negh'Var Class
Affiliation: Klingon Empire
Time Frame: 2370s - Present
Advantage: Size, Cloaking Device, Ground Troops
Rank: 5,000 to 6,000 Posts

The largest class of Klingon warship ever constructed, the first of her kind and namesake for the class, the Negh'Var, was first encountered by the Federation as it lead a task-force of over 50 Klingon warships in an invasion of the Cardassian Union in 2372. The flagship of the empire housing the Klingon High Chancellor, the vessel is not built with maneuverability but rather sheer fire-power at mind. Capable of supporting a troop force of up to 10,000, the Negh'Var is closer to a warp-capable space station in practice than to the typical starship. Indeed, her shields and weapons systems where designed to account for her lack of mobility and based off of those that protect the Quo'Nos.

Refit Galaxy-Class Starship Identification: Refit Galaxy-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: Future - 2390s
Advantage: Cloaking Device, Advanced Warp Drive
Rank: 6,000 to 7,000 Posts

Reconfigured from top to bottom, the refit Galaxy-Class boasts an arsenal of additional systems that make it a fierce heavy battle cruiser capable of vanquishing even the mighty Negh'Var-Class Klingon warship. Sporting a collimated pulse-phaser cannon under her primary saucer and an upgraded engine system with both additional impulse reactors and a third warp nacelle, this more heavily armed variant of the old Galaxy-Class puts her predecessor to shame. Also outfitted with an additional shuttle bay and twin long-range sensor antennae's, the refit Galaxy is faster, tougher, smarter and more capable.

Sovereign-Class Starship Identification: Sovereign-Class Starship
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2370s - Present
Advantage: Auto-Modulated Shields, Ablative Armor
Rank: 7,000 to 8,000 Posts

First introduced to service in 2370, the sleek and highly maneuverable Sovereign-Class ushered in a new era in Starfleet ship design. The streamlined Sovereign is outfitted with the latest in combat systems such as energy-dissipating ablative hull armor, sixteen type twelve phaser arrays, four burst-fire and four standard photon torpedo launchers and a rapid-fire quantum torpedo turret. Enhanced engine systems allow it to sustain a maximum warp of factor nine-point-nine for thirty-six hours. Being leaner than the bulky Galaxy-Class and equipped with enhanced automation systems allows it to operate with forty-percent fewer crew.

Dominion Warship Identification: Jem'Hadar Warship
Affiliation: Dominion
Time Frame: 2360s - Present
Advantage: Phase Polaron Cannons, High Density Armor
Rank: 8,000 to 9,000 Posts

Equivalent in size and specifications to the Federation Galaxy-Class or Romulan D'Deridex, the Dominion Warship makes up what it lacks in engine or armor enhancements with its array of phase polaron canons and its sophisticated Dominion sensors. Housing a troop compliment equivalent to the Klingon Negh'Var while maintaining its maneuverability also contribute to the warships edge in combat. Believed to be a relatively new addition to the Dominion fleet, over fifteen hundred of these ships where brought into the Alpha Quadrant prior to the Dominion War.

Scimitar Class Warbird Identification: Scimitar Class Warbird
Affiliation: Reman (Subject of Romulan Star Empire)
Time Frame: 2379 (Destroyed)
Advantage: Cloaking Device, Thalaron Radiation Emitter
Rank: 9,000 to 10,000 Posts

Described by Captain Jean-luc Picard as a 'predator', the Scimitar-Class warbird is one of the most heavily armed and shielded vessels encountered in recent memory. Equipped with 52 disruptor banks, 27 torpedo launchers, primary and secondary shielding, as well as the most sophisticated cloak yet encountered, the Scimitar is beyond intimidating. But beyond her ship-to-ship combat abilities, which also include a full compliment of Scorpion-class attack fighters, the Scimitar posesses a secret weapon capable of planet-wide genocide. Once considered only theoretical, the Thalaron radiation core at the heart of the Scimitar allows it to obliterate all organic life across an entire world.

Borg Cube Identification: Borg Cube
Affiliation: Borg Collective
Time Frame: Unknown
Advantage: Transwarp Drive, Adaptability, Auto-Regenerative
Rank: 10,000 to 12,500 Posts

Though deceptively simplistic in design, the cube-shaped vessel that makes up the backbone of the Borg fleet is one of the most frightening and intimidating vessels one could ever encounter. This impressive class of vessel houses as few as 5,000 and as many as 180,000 drones. It's tactical compliment consists of high energy tractor beams, plasma beams, warp field destabilizing weapons and laser cutting beams. Highly adaptable and auto-regenerative, Borg cubes have been observed to remain operational even if up to 70% of the vessel where rendered inoperable. Simply put, the Borg cube is one of the most fearsome and tactically advanced ships ever encountered.

Starbase Identification: Starbase
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2345 - 2365 (Cntd. Service)
Advantage: 100 Phaser Arrays, Internal Docking Bay
Rank: 12,500 to 15,000 Posts

The back-bone of Starfleet's long-term presence in the frontier, the Federation starbase has seen multiple setups and variants over the centuries. From asterodial-set outposts like Earth's 22nd century cold station 12, to independent scientific and design installations like Jupiter station, through the 22nd centuries K-class of starbases and beyond. This particular design harkens back to the Regula-class science stations of the mid-to-late 2200s. Upgraded and upscaled for modern late-24th century considerations, starbases of this class such as base 375 are outfitted with nearly 5,700 starfleet personenell and capable of accomodating an additional 6,000 individuals. Designed with a considerably smaller internal docking bay than her 'big sister' bases upsacled and modeled after Earth's spacedock, these facilities offer a home-away-from-home amongst the frontier for starships and their crews, and an important strategic outpost in an ever-changing galaxy.

Deep Space 9 Identification: Nor-Class Starbase/Deep Space 9
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2340s - 2360s (Cntd. Service)
Advantage: 60+ Phaser Arrays, 60+ Torpedo Launchers
Rank: 15,000 to 17,500 Posts

Designed and built by the Cardassian Union, the Nor-Class starbase Deep Space 9 has been at the fore-front of galactic events since Starfleet assumed control under invitation from the Bajoran government in 2369. Requiring only a small crew compliment of 500, but capable of servicing dozens of starships of various types and classes, Deep Space 9 became the virtual center of the galaxy in the wake of the discovery of the only known stable interstellar wormhole in the Bajoran star system. Initially disarmed by the Cardassians during their withdraw, it took Starfleet nearly 4 years to refit and re-arm the facility. Once complete, those armaments made Deep Space 9 one of the most heavily armed facilities in the Federation. Housing 6 type-XI phaser banks, 63 type-X phaser arrays, and 66 pulse fire photon torpedo launchers, Deep Space 9 has proven herself more than capable of defending

Spacedock Identification: Spacedock (Starbase)
Affiliation: Starfleet, United Federation of Planets
Time Frame: 2274 - Present (Cntd. Service)
Advantage: 90+ Torpedo Launchers, Internal Docking Bay
Rank: 17,500 to 20,000 Posts

Reconstructed in the mid-2300s to upscale the existing spacedock facility to service the modern fleet, the recognizable 'mushroom-shaped' spacedock-class starbase is itself a colony amidst the void. Housing a crew in the tens-of-thousands of Starfleet and aligned civilian personnel, and capable of accommodating upwards of a quarter-million additional inhabitants, the spacedock-class starbase puts everything else in Starfleet to shame in sheer size and capabilities. The mamoth facility is armed to the teeth, with nearly 100 torpedo launchers and capable of supporting as many as 2,000 phaser arrays when equipped. These armaments and defenses more than make up for her complete lack of self-mobility. Her docking facilities are the true heart and soul of these types of installations. Capable of housing dozens of starships of various sizes and configurations, and supporting hundreds of auxiliary craft make the spacedock-class starbase unlike any other.

Doomsday Machine Identification: Doomsday Machine
Affiliation: Unknown
Time Frame: Unknown
Advantage: Neutronium Hull, Anti-Proton Beam
Rank: 20,000 to 25,000 Posts

Little is known of the unmanned robot vessel labeled the 'doomsday machine' other than what could be gleamed from the sole encounter with a vessel of this type by the first U.S.S. Enterprise in the 2260s. Her solid neutronium hull is impenetrable by any and all types of known weaponry, even into the 24th century. Her pure antiproton beam weapon enables the vessel to literally destroy entire planets at whim. Simply put, the doomsday machine is one of the most awesome and fearsome weapons ever encountered in the known universe. Anyone who could control such a vessel would be unmatched.

V'Ger Identification: V'GER
Affiliation: Unknown
Time Frame: Unknown
Advantage: Unknown
Rank: 25,000 Posts and Above

Though very little is known of the specifics of V'Ger, what is known is alarming. Capable of 'collecting' other ships and stations, destroying all life on a given world, and larger than any other vessel ever encountered, V'Ger - the Earth Voyager 6 Probe, Reconfigured and Reprogrammed by an Advanced Race - is perhaps the most awesome and powerful vessel ever known to exist. Its probe systems, normally harmless sensor beacons for the majority of space-fairing races, are more powerful than most ships best weapons. It's weapons systems are ascertained to be capable of eliminating all life on a given world while leaving said world intact. Where V'Ger ever to be able to fall under an individuals control, it would rival the combined fleets of every species in the galaxy and perhaps beyond.
