Deck ListingDeep Space 21 - Styx Outpost – The Nor-class was marked by a central core surrounded by two rings with a diameter of 1451.82 meters, the outermost of which served as the base for six arching docking pylons, three above and three below, with a total height of 969.26 meters. The majority of Nor-class stations were designed to support mining and refining operations, though they could be adapted to other purposes.
Nova Class Specifications – General specifications for a Nova Class Surveyor.
Sometimes described as the little sister in the new family of Starfleet vessels, the Nova Class Survey Frigate is part of the new breed of starships in service.
Aggressively designed, the small ship and its lack of amenities manage to surpass one’s first impression of its diminutive size. Known for its durability, the Nova Class has swiftly loss its status as a ‘little ship’ and is slowly gaining acclaim for their usefulness in making for more accurate missions to new areas of space, bringing back teraquads of data on individual systems that is disseminated amongst the fleets.
The Nova sports impressive weaponry for its size, and its scientific capabilities more than make up for its reduction in speed when compared to its larger ‘cousins’. Double deflector dishes also provide added security when far from a starbase or suitable repair facility, in that a single malfunctioning or damaged deflector will not prevent the ship from going to warp.
Highly accurate sensors and computer systems makes it the perfect tool to send into scarcely known territory and many discoveries have been made by Nova Classes finding things larger Explorer-type ships such as the Galaxy Class left behind.
