Design Specifications


The Saber class is one of the smallest vessels in general Fleet service. The vessel is also highly modular in nature. This allows smaller independent shipyards to fabricate the major sub-assemblies, which are then shipped to a larger Starfleet facility for final assembly. The independent yards entered into a fierce battle to offer the most competitive advantage, resulting in significant cost savings as well as improved construction and delivery times.


The Saber class was fitted with warp engines and impulse systems to be capable of high speeds along with an extended duration, both of which are important for an escort. they also provide large power reserves for weapons and shields.


As an escort, the Saber class needed to be well-armed. As such she carries four of the new Type X phaser emitters developed for the Galaxy class, as well as two photon torpedo launchers. Their deflector shielding system provides exceptional fire-dissipation rates, allowing the ship to stand-to and hammer it out with far larger vessels.

Computer Systems

Trying to fit the M-13 Isolinear computer system core into the Saber class proved quite a problem. However, the tactical and propulsion systems required this model. They were finally able to do so, but a great deal of storage capability has been removed to allow the core to fit in the space alotted. This is not considered a problem, however, as the ship's computing storage needs are minimal.
