These specifications reflect the Naucrate-variant which is assumed to be the new standard for all Naucrate-class starships as of 2380.

The Naucrate-class is a small Federation starship used primarily by Starfleet as a scout class, planetary surveyor, and science vessel throughout the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.


General Overview

Class History

Plans for what would become the Naucrate-class starship were first proposed to the Starfleet Corps of Engineers sometime during the mid-2350s as a possible replacement for the aging Oberth-class starships, many of which had been in service since the late twenty-third century. The Naucrate's designers had created a vessel whose primary purpose was the study of astronomical phenomena, data-gathering missions on stars and planets, and conducting more detailed surveys of regions which had already been explored by larger vessels.

The Starfleet Corps of Engineers was forced to revisit the "Naucrate" design during the early 2370s to determine whether or not it had already been rendered obsolete by the newly introduced Nova-class starships. After carefully examining each vessel's mission profile, shipboard facilities, resource management, and performance capabilities, it was decided there was enough of a difference between the two designs to continue production of the Naucrate-class, albeit on a slightly diminished scale from what had originally been planned. Further changes in the development of the Nova-class during the late 2370s made room for several modifications to the Naucrate design aimed at further solidifying its place as a short to mid-range survey science vessel.
