This is a partial specifications list for the Nova-class starship as per Sixth Fleet's Design and Development Bureau. For the complete specifications please visit the DaDB site.

Subclasses:

The Nova Class is in many ways a smaller version of the Intrepid-class or Sovereign-class. It features an arrowhead shaped saucer mated to an engineering hull. Warp Nacelles are mounted near the middle and sweep upward and back giving the overall ship a very slim profile.

Background

Originally a scrapped design for the Defiant-class, members of the Nova design team chanced across the drafts and realized that they could be adapted to suit the role of a multi-role Science vessel. After refining the design to allow for roles as a Surveyor, Research/Laboratory, Scout and Courier making it one of the foremost Science vessels in Starfleet. It is widely expected that the Nova will eventually replace the aging Oberth-class. Similar to that older class it is limited in tactical and propulsion, sacrificing those for sensors and shielding.
