The Sentinal is a Dominion war era medium cruiser, based on an ealier Intrepid design. Part of the saucer was redesigned to incorperate pulse and torpeod launchers. An additional 2 launchers were added aft, and the nacelles, engeneering, and part of the impulse deck has been given a layer of armor. To keep this ship agile, the rest of the ship has a standard high density hull plating similar to other ships of the era. It can be used both as a hit and run vessel with quantums and fwd pulse weapons, or a "dogfighter" with it's armament of phasers and regenerative shields.

The quantum torpedo will not overwrite as it had to have it's size modified to fit the smaller vessel. ***History*** The Sentinal Class story begins in the early days of the Dominion War..StarFleet saw the need for a small but powerful Ship that could yield considerable damage to larger enemy Battle ships yet still be able to survive in a dog fight with smaller attack ships.In a rush to get such a ship into service Starfleet used an early Conceptual Design of the Intrepid Class as the basis for the Sentinel Class. In addition to the Conceptual design forward weapons pods were added that house powerful pulse phasers and Torpedo/Quantum launchers.The first ship in the class,U.S.S. Sentinel NX-80050, was launched in the final months of the War.Instead of a traditional shake down cruise the Sentinel was put directly into service preforming small hit and run attacks on Dominion Instalations.With it's success the ship was put into service and played a vital roll in the final days of the war. In the Post War Starfleet,The Sentinel,along with her sister ships IMPETUOUS,ENDURANCE and REPULSE are part of a new first Response attack fleet and are helping guard the Federation during a most vulnirable time in history. e-mail Coolguyli25 AT aol DOT com ========================================================= About the BC version: Phasers are a defensive or strafing weapon, meant for passes, while the hard hitting torpedo systems and fwd pulse weaponry is meant for head on assults. Torpedoes work on dual fire.
