The Pulsar was an experimental Starfleet prototype for a science vessel to replace the ageing fleet of Oberth class ships. The Pulsar was eventually shelved in favour of the Nova class although in all trials it performed somewhat better. The heart-shaped hull had two booms that contained the warp field coils and two separate warp-cores fed from a central anti-matter generator plant. The idea behind this was double redundancy for long periods of warp travel. It takes a great deal more power to achieve warp speed than it does to maintain it so it would be possible to deactivate a core and feed both nacelles from the active one for brief periods to service the core and extend the longevity of the system. The ship was quite compact with only four habitable decks and a large shuttlebay beneath the bridge so internal space was at a premium. Much of the design was borrowed from the more militaristic front-line vessels with large deflector armour plating and a compact forward deflector dish in the nose and a full phaser array with a single forwards and rear torpedo tube.
See the read me for specs ;)
====Starforce Productions Pulsar class Infiltrator==== Credits: Model and Textures: Daniel Clarke (firstname.lastname@example.org) Conversion and hp's: Starforce2 Notes: Despite the dropping of this vessel class from full active production in favor of the Nova scieence vessel, a few were built and more unassembled as backup to be used as infiltration vessels. Although they are moderatley equipt with 8 medium power phasers and have average shields for their size, they have also been equiped with a few high yield quantum torpedoes and a cloaking device. These fast little ships, which are roughly the length of a Nova class, can sneak in, knock something out or get nessecary recon and get out. If Cought, they have the speed and manuverability to hold their own against mod destroyers and medium cruisers, or heavy vessels with poor fire arc coverage. 8 Phaserbanks at 650 damage power 1 fore and aft torpedo tube, 3 shots each. 80 Photons, 40 quantums
