Ships of the Border Service, circa 2377

39 posts in this topic

For our United Trek writers, here is a list of some of the Border Service vessels/classes from around 2377.

 

Note, the only difference in markings between Border Service and Starfleet vessels are the blue and orange pennants for the cutters (instead of Starfleet red) with the Border Service insignia replacing the Starfleet Cochrane Delta. Both services use NCC prefixes for their registry numbers.

 

Aerie - Class Patrol Scout / Survey Vessel

Developed in the late 2340's, the Aerie - class was designed to fill the gap between automated sensor buoys and the various cutters employed by the Border Service to patrol the boundaries and space-lanes of the Federation. The small but agile vessel utilizes many automated systems, allowing for smaller crews and a lower build-cost. Its planet landing capability is an added bonus. The Border Service ordered 32 of the Patrol Scouts, while an additional 5 were built for civilian research use. The two models were virtually identical, though the civilian models lacked weaponry. Due to budget constraints (a common theme for the Border Service) actual production was limited to 15 ships. The first ship, USS Aerie went into service in 2250. All but two of the Border Service ships are still operational. The S.S. Raven, one of the civilian models, disappeared in 2356. It was later learned that the Raven and Hansen family were assimilated by the Borg. (Thanks to Sam Redfeather for introducing the Patrol Scout Harrier in ST:Gibraltar - Gravity. The Raven is a canon ship from Star Trek: Voyager)

 

Specs. 60,000 metric tons. Crew: 3 - 10 (Max capacity of 20), Type IX phasers and micro-torpedo launchers forward/aft (Border Service models), Maximum speed: Warp 9.6, Planetary landing capability. Smallcraft: None.

Albacore - Class Border Cutter

The Albacore-class is the backbone of the Border Service. These ships are fast, durable and well-armed. They are also compact and cramped! Their impulse engines provide a power to mass ratio second only to the Defiant-class, which can make operating an Albacore a challenge for a new helmsman. Maximum warp speed in 9.2. Developed in the late 23rd century, 22 ships were built in the class, receiving major refits in the 2340's. By May of 2377, only 14 are still in active service, the others having been retired, destroyed or sold.

 

Specs: 390,000 metric tons, Length: 144 meters, Height: 40 meters, Width: 69 meters, Decks: 8, Crew: 150, Evacuation limit: 500, Type VIII phaser turrets, Twin forward/single aft torpedo launchers (60 x Mark 22 "Rat Trap" torpedoes, 45 Photon torpedoes),  Maximum speed: Warp 9 (uprated models), Smallcraft: 4 Star Stallions / 2 Type 8 Shuttlecraft / 1 Workbee

 

 

NOTE: The USS Finback was found adrift in April of 2377 after disappearing in 2349. It is undergoing a refit with plans to return the cutter to service in late 2377 or early 2378.

Apollo - Class Border Cutter

The Apollo - class first went into service in the 2320's. Originally slated as a destroyer / light cruiser, Admiral Odegaard of the Border Service was able to persuade the Admiralty to set aside ten of the class for dedicated Border Service duty. These cutters have proved to be very agile performers. While not considered as sturdy as the Albacores the Apollos are quicker and have a higher top speed. By the late 2370's eight of these cutters remained in service, assigned to patrol duties along the Romulan Neutral Zone.

Miranda - Class Escort Cutter

More Miranda -class starships were built between 2258 and 2315 than any other class of starship. Until the Domininon War, they were the most common Federation vessel in existence. The irony is the Miranda - class design was an after-thought. Shortly after the introduction of the Constitution - class in the mid-23rd century, Starfleet saw the need for a smaller, more efficient and relatively inexpensive light cruiser capable of multi-mission roles. Utilizing the saucer section and warp drive components from the Constitutions, the Miranda - class was born. It proved to be more practical in many respects than the Connies which had a relatively short life span (with a few notable exceptions). The Mirandas had a smaller cross-section and tended to be sturdier ships than the Connies. The multi-mission capability was a major advantage. A Miranda could be outfitted as a destroyer with a weapons pod, a surveyor with a sensor pod, a transport, a tanker, and even a light carrier with an extended flight deck. Most of the Mirandas exceeded their 80 - year design parameters and several variant classes were developed. Many were placed in long-term storage as newer ships, such as the Nebula - class joined the fleet in the mid and later 24th century. In the mid 2360's, the Border Service acquired ten of the mothballed Mirandas, re-naming them and outfitting them for escort duty. In 2377, six of these vessels are still in service, usually assigned to convoy duty in occupied Cardassian territory.

 

Specs: 655,000 metric tons, Crew: 220+, Six type-VII phaser emitters; two pulse phaser cannons; two photon torpedo launchers, Maximum speed: Warp 9.2, Smallcraft: 2 Star Stallions / 4 Type 8 Shuttlecraft / 2 Class 9 Shuttlecraft / 1 Workbee

Soyuz - Class Border Cutter

The Soyuz - class cutter is a derivative of the ubiquitous Miranda - class starship. In the late 23rd century, the Miranda -class went through a major refit program which resulted in several sub-classes. The Soyuz - class received an expanded landing bay for larger shuttle craft and runabouts, upgraded sensors and heavy phaser cannons. These ships were popular with their crews for their ruggedness, reliability and ease of maintenance. They are not terribly fast and are rapidly disappearing in the latter part of the 24th century - some after over 100 years of service. Only seven remain in service in 2377. One, the USS Adair, is a one-off refit to handle hazardous material accidents and fires on ships and stations. Another one-off ship is the USS Sandy Hook, refit for salvage work. The USS Bozeman, ironically, is projected to last well into the 25th century - it was caught in a temporal loop for 80 years and its space frame is the equivalent of only 30 years old.

 

Specs: 675,000 metric tons, Crew: 220+, Six type-VII phaser emitters, single pulse phaser cannon, two photon torpedo launchers, Maximum speed: Warp 8.5, Smallcraft: 4 Star Stallions / 4 Type 8 Shuttlecraft / 2 Workbees

Griffin - Class Deep Space Cutter

The Griffin - class was originally developed in the 2340's as a perimeter action vessel, designed to escort larger task forces and protect the capitol ships. However, the need for perimeter action ships waned, so the Griffins were attached to the Border Service where their range and speed proved valuable in the sparsely populated space lanes. Unlike the Alabacore - class, the Griffins did not rely on the system of Star Stations for support. Instead, these deep space cutters would remain on station for weeks, even months at a time without the need for resupply. Similar in appearance to the newer Intrepid-class starships, the Griffin-class introduced the elongated primary hull that has become more prominent in cotemporary starship design. These cutters are speedy and well-armed, providing a valuable counter to pirates and smugglers who frequented the interstellar void. By 2377, seventeen of the ships remain in service.

 

Specs: 720,000 metric tons, Crew: 200+, Type X phaser arrays, Twin forward/single aft torpedo launchers, Maximum speed: Warp 9.5, Smallcraft: 2 Star Stallions / 4 Type 8 Shuttlecraft / 4 Type 9 Shuttlecraft / 1 Workbee

Sequoia - Class Fast Response Cutter

The Sequoia-class is the newest class of cutter in the Border Service, and the most controversial. The original plans were to design an entirely new cutter to fit the needs of the Border Service for the next 80 plus years. However, cost concerns shifted the focus to adapting a current class to meet the needs, much as the Soyuz-class was an adaptation of the Miranda-class. The Nova - class space frame was chosen as the starting point for the new cutter. New, uprated warp engines matched to a more robust warp core, boosted speeds into the higher warp 9 range - a major improvement over the original anemic speeds of the Novas. Additional weaponry in the form of heavy phaser cannons and two additional torpedo launchers gives the class more firepower. However, veteran cutter commanders complained that the ship lacked adequate tractor beams and concerns were expressed about the long-term durability of the new ship in areas such as the Molari Badlands. Despite these objections, the USS Sequoia was commissioned in late 2376 under the command of Captain Tyre D'Angelo. If funding is approved, a total of 24 Sequoia - class ships will be constructed over the next ten years.

 

Specs: 250,000 metric tons, Crew: 80, Type XI phaser arrays, Twin pulse-phaser cannons, Twin forward/twin aft torpedo launchers, Maximum speed: Warp 9.9, Smallcraft: 1 Type 8 Shuttlecraft / 2 Type 9 Shuttlecraft

Deepstar - Class Rescue / Recovery Cutter

Approved by Starfleet for operations in 2377, the Deepstar - Class is a new series of vessel designed for multiple-mission capability - from rescue operations, evacuation and emergency transport, medical services, to salvage/recovery of damaged or destroyed vessels. The Deepstar development team was charged with designing a vessel capable of the aforementioned mission parameters while also carrying a modern weapons system, state of the art sensors, an extendable shield envelope, six graviton beam-emitters, and a warp factor nine capability. Consolidated Starfire impulse engines, similar to those used on Defiant and Albacore - class ships will be utilized for superior sub-light performance. Commander Iris Ludanski, project director, began work on designing the prototype at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards after funding was first approved in 2371. The project was delayed due to the Dominion War but resumed in 2376. The prototype, USS Deepstar, NX 88710, was cleared for trials in May 2377, under the command of Captain Bill Harmon. If the ship should meet expectations, a total of 18 ships will be built. Teamed with the new Sequoia - class Fast Response Cutters, it is anticipated that the Deepstar - class will ultimately be a suitable replacement for both the Albacore and Miranda - Class series.

 

Specs: 650,000 metric tons, Crew: 200+, Type XI phaser arrays, Pulse-phaser cannon, Twin forward/twin aft torpedo launchers, Maximum speed: Warp 9.8, Smallcraft: 4 Mk II Star Stallions / 4 Type 8 Shuttles / 4 Type 9 Shuttles / 2 Workbees

Forward - Class Border Cutter / Corvette

Undergoing trials in 2377, the Forward - Class cutters are being developed to complement the larger Deepstar - class cutters and the smaller Sequoias. Like the Albacores, the Forward - Class is designed as a sturdy, fast cutter, capable of navigating ion storms and towing vessels many times their size. Improvements in computer systems and automation allow for a smaller crew consist in more comfortable accommodations. Two ships have been approved for the Border Service - the prototype USS Forward and the under-construction  USS Panache. It is unknown if the remaining ten ships will be approved or if the entire program will be halted. Starfleet is also interested in the design as a small corvette for escort duty and/or perimeter defense. USS Gorshkov is being built to Starfleet specifications for trials. The Gorshkov carries heavier armament but with fewer tractor beam emitters.

 

Specs (Border Service): 300,000 metric tons, Crew: 100, Type X phasers, Forward/aft torpedo launchers, Maximum speed: Warp 9.7

Specs (Starfleet): 302,000 metric tons, Crew: 90-120, Type XII phasers, Pulse phaser turret, Forward/aft torpedo launchers, Maximum speed: Warp 9.7, Smallcraft: 2 Mk II Star Stallions / 2 Type 8 Shuttlecraft / 2 Workbees

NCC - 89061 USS Manistee

NCC - 88242 USS Gorshkov (Starfleet spec. Corvette, under construction at Andor Fleet Yards.)

 

 

Everest - Class Asteroid Breaker / Warp Tug

The Everest - class was developed in the 2330s specifically to clear navigational lanes through asteroid fields and to tow disabled vessels at warp speed. The ships have numerous graviton beam emitters (tractor beams), cutting lasers and point defense phasers. Three powerful navigational deflectors on the bow allow these ships to move massive asteroids. Their hulls are heavily armored and reinforced. The ships are very maneuverable but also very slow. Top warp speed is 7.9 (6.2 when towing another ship). Only two of the original four are left as the newer Ouachita - class tugs replace them.

 

Specs: 770,000 metric tons, Crew: 60+, Type VIII phaser turrets, Maximum speed: Warp 7.9, Smallcraft: None

 

NX / NCC-5200 USS Everest

NCC-5201 USS Vesuvius (retired in 2370, reactivated in 2376 following loss of Kilimanjaro)

NCC-5203 USS Kilimanjaro (destroyed)

NCC-5204 USS Fujiyama

 

Ouachita - Class Asteroid Breaker / Warp Tug

The Ouachita - class entered service in the late 2350s. Identical in function to the Everest-class, the Ouachitas add better speed and defense capabilities with a smaller crew requirement. Currently, there are four active ships in this class. Other construction contracts are pending.

 

Specs: 620,000 metric tons, Crew: 40+, Type X phaser arrays, Single torpedo launcher, Maximum speed: Warp 9.2, Smallcraft: 2 Workbees

 

NX / NCC 58400 USS Ouachita

NCC-58410 USS Obion - C.O. Captain Gehmari emal Vrej

NCC-58413 USS Scioto

NCC-58415 USS Cimarron

USS Cumberland (construction contract pending)

USS Maravenda (construction contract pending)

USS Du'ursk (construction contract pending)

 

Pamlico - Class Buoy Tender

The Pamlicos are an eclectic mixture of previously retired ships that were pulled from mothballs, brought up to minimal operating specifications and assigned to service the hundreds of subspace relays and navigational buoys operated by Starfleet and the Border Service. The ships lack weapons and offer few amenities for their crews. Usually, they go out no more than a week at a time. Serving on these ships is considered to be the bottom rung of the ladder for Border Service crews.

 

NCC-T101 USS Pamlico (former Oberth - class USS Gordon Cooper) - C.O. Lt. Cmdr. Kelendi Nor Huren

NCC-T102 USS Kennebec (former Constellation - class USS Swiftsure)

NCC-T103 USS Saginaw (former Oberth - class USS Andrei Tupolov) - C.O. Commander J. Ulysses Kane

NCC-T104 USS Katami (former Pyotr Velikiy - class USS Erika Hernandez)

 

Support Vessels (Small-craft)

Like Starfleet, the Border Service employs shuttle craft and runabouts of various sizes and types. Most of these are assigned to the ten Star Stations. A few cutters carry shuttle-craft, but most carry Star Stallions, a utilitarian vessel, larger than a Type-10 shuttle, but smaller than a Danube - class runabout. The Stallions have spartan interiors and are more ruggedly built than shuttles. They include tractor beams as well as four universal docking rings for when transporters are impractical. Most are equipped with a weapons pod on a roll bar, giving the Stallions phasers and/or micro-torpedoes. The Stallions are not named (unlike the shuttles) but carry numbered designations, e.g. Stallion 01. Most of the station shuttlecraft are named after retired or deceased Border Service personnel. (e.g. Odegaard, Paski, Parker et. al.)

 

Star Stallion Specs: Length 19.7 meters, Height 5.4 meters, Width 13.5 meters, Passenger capacity: 30, Twin Type VIII phaser emitters, Twin micro torpedo launchers, Maximum speed: Warp 4

 

Star Stallion Mk II Specs: Length 19.8 meters, Height 5.4 meters, Width 13.4 meters, Passenger capacity: 35, Type X phaser array, fore/aft micro torpedo launchers, Maximum speed: Warp 6

Note to UT writers -

If you plan to use a Border Service vessel in any of your stories, feel free to use one from this list. Or, if you'd rather come up with your own ship or class, I'd be happy to add it to the list - just let me know.  :)

I have plans for the Deepstar and the Carl Brashear but the Max Nohl, Jacques-Yves Cousteau and the Marianna could be available by the end of 2377. I can make a minor edit on construction progress if you'd like to use any of those. For that matter, if any of the other ships in the class appeal to you, let me know - you're welcome to use them.

TLR,

Just letting you know that in my current story "Pandora's Jar" I'm going to cameo the Border Service ship USS Pronghorn (which is my tentative name), captained by Gorik, Glover's former captain on the Kitty Hawk (circa 2360). When I get it fleshed out more I'll supply you with more info and the crew roster.

I haven't quite figured that out yet. I'm considering Albacore, Apollo, or Soyuz. I don't want top of the line, but I don't want bottom of the barrel either. Have any suggestions?

I would recommend either the Albacore or Apollo-class. The Soyuz-class ships are getting long in the tooth and near retirement. The other class ships would probably be too new or too small.

No rush - I can add Pronghorn to the list any time.

Update: Added the Pronghorn and two other ships to the Albacore-class. Also adding names of ship's commanding officers. If you have any C.O.s to add that I left out, let me know.

If so, she would be a freshly minted Lt. Commander. I think it's possible she could be in command in late '74. If you have someone else in mind, that's fine too. I never established when she became C.O.
