The Ticonderoga is a highly manuverable vessel with good phaser coverage. It's designed similar to the challenger class which would be built years later. It has well detailed panneling and also features fully lit nacelles. There is no registrey on the ship so feel free to add your own!

Kemper Armament: Though classed as a CL in the readme, she's more of a heavy destroyer. Less amss than the miranda, better shields, no megaphasers, less torpedo capability, more general phaser coverage. Armament: 2x fwd torpedo tubes, 2 round load 10x dual turret standard Cruiser phaser arrays with the fwd saucer placements and aft deck placements boosted. Vessel history: The Ticonderoga Class Light Cruiser is the newest class of vessels to come from the Federation assembly line. At present, only the Ticonderoga has been completed, with the construction of 24 more vessels to begin if and when she successfully completes her trials. The Ticonderoga is the first Starfleet vessel with up and down warp nacelles, as opposed to the conventional side to side method of dual engines in the past. Great study and design experimentation has gone into this alignment, with a number of new theories in warp engineering occurring as well. Not until the evidence of improved performance came about was this radical design ever seriously considered. Tests have shown that through some still not understood principle of warp matter/antimatter balance a vessel using this engine configuration should attain greater speeds with more safety than a vessel using the standard configuration. Practical trials have only been conducted with vessels less than 40,000 tons but designers and warp engineers can find no reason why this advantage should not help larger ships as well. Ticonderoga has been built to make sure that this is indeed so. If the class is a success, Starfleet intends to use the vessels for such tasks as escorts for important convoys, and pirate suppression. Finally, the privateers who prey on helpless shipping will come up against a vessel that can both outgun them and outrun them. This never-before-seen situation is looked upon with great expectation by many merchant corporations and far-flung frontier worlds. The trials of the Ticonderoga are scheduled for later in this year. Only then will it be known for sure if the class will be a success or not. Regardless of the outcome, the Ticonderoga class may very well be the last major Starfleet vessel to be equipped with standard warp engines. The continuing tests of the new battleship Excelsior and her transwarp drive may make all other means of interstellar propulsion obsolete before the final ship of the Ticonderoga class is complete. ================================================ ======Legal mumbo-jumbo========= This BC Conversion contains work created by or under copyright jurisdiction of the Outalance mod team.
