AUTHOR’S NOTE
This technical manual is based on the
Star Trek: TheNext Generation Technical Manual
, which covers the sys-tems of the
Galaxy
class starship (specifically the USS
En-terprise
, NCC-1701-D). This volume only covers those sys-tems that are significantly different as used by the
Nottingham
class starship (specifically the USS
MarshalMartz
, NCC-78506).The reader is referred to the above publication for infor-mation on systems common to all Federation starships.
 
1.0 NOTTINGHAM CLASS INTRODUCTION
1.1 MISSION OBJECTIVES FORNOTTINGHAM CLASS PROJECT
In the years following the destructionof several
Galaxy
class starships, including theUSS
Enterprise
, NCC-1701-D, there has beena debate over the need for large multi-mis-sion starships. The
Sovereign
class, such asthe current USS
Enterprise
, has been de-signed with deep-range exploration as a mi-nor mission responsibility. This left the Fed-eration without a starship class capable of undertaking the deep-range exploration thatthe
Galaxy
class was designed to carry out.The
Nottingham
class was developed to fillthis void in Starfleet’s mandate.Since the
Nottingham
class starship isdesigned to undertake many of the same mis-sions as the
Galaxy
class, the design goals of the two starship classes are nearly identical.However, there are a number of design goalsthat are quite different due to advancementsin technology.Pursuant to Starfleet Exploration Direc-tive 902.3.7, the mission objectives of theNottingham Class Starship DevelopmentProject are as follows:>Provide a mobile platform for ongo-ing scientific and cultural research projects.>Replace aging
 Ambassador 
,
Oberth
,and
Galaxy
class starships as primary instru-ments of Starfleet’s exploration programs.>Provide autonomous capability for fullexecution of Federation policy options in out-lying areas.>Incorporate recent advancements inwarp powerplant technology and improvedscience instrumentation.
1.0 NOTTINGHAM CLASS INTRODUCTION2. STAR TREK: TALES OF THE MARSHAL MARTZ TECHNICAL MANUAL 
 
Since the mission objectives of the
Nottingham
class starship are nearly identicalto those of the earlier 
Galaxy
class starship,the Advanced Starship Development Bureauconcentrated on the incorporation of advance-ments in technology and radical new designphilosophies which allow for greater range andmission durations than ever before. Specifi-cally, design goals were updated in the fol-lowing categories:
PROPULSION
>Sustainable cruise velocity of WarpFactor 9.5. Ability to maintain speeds of up toWarp 9.92 for periods of up to ten days.>Sixth-phase dilithium controlled mat-ter/antimatter reactor primary power. Sustain-able field output to exceed 3,000 cochranes,peak transitional surge reserve to exceed5,000% of nominal output (100 ns phase).>Warp driver coils efficiency to meet or exceed 90% at speeds up to Warp 8.0 Mini-mum efficiency of 75% to be maintainedthrough warp 9.99. Life cycle of all primarycoil elements to meet or exceed 5,000,000cochrane-hours between neutron purge refur-bishment. Secondary coil elements to meetor exceed 8,000,000 cochrane-hours betweenneutron purge refurbishment.
MISSION
>Ability to operate independent of starbase refurbishment for extended periods.Independent exploration mode capability of fifteen standard years at nominal Warp 6 ve-locity. Ability to execute deep-space explora-tion missions including charting and mapping,first cultural contact scenarios, and full biologicand ecologic studies.>Space allocation for mission-specificfacilities: Habitable area to be comparable tothat of the
Galaxy
class starship.>Ability to conduct research unaffectedby ship functions and emissions, includingmission-specific facilities that may be isolatedfrom the vessel and jettisoned as needed.
ENVIRONMENT/CREW 
>Expanded cetacean operations facili-ties, including independent access to bridge,engineering, shuttlebay, and transporter rooms.
 TACTICAL 
>Tactical capabilities comparable to
Sovereign
class design but optimized for de-fensive operations.
DESIGN LIFE
>Spaceframe design life of approxi-mately 150 standard years, assuming approxi-mately seven major shipwide systemswapouts and upgrades at average intervalsof twenty years. Minor refurbishment andupgrade to occur at approximately three- tofive-year intervals, depending on specific mis-sion requirements and hardware availability.
1.2 DESIGN LINEAGE
The
Nottingham
class maintains the tra-dition of naming vessels after notable placesand people. The original plan was to nameeach vessel of the class after a city featuredin the history and legends of Federation mem-ber worlds. However, only the class vessel,the USS
Nottingham
, NX-78505, followed thisplan. As the scientific and cultural researchcapabilities of the design presented them-selves, it was decided that the remaining ves-sels of the
Nottingham
class would bear thenames of people who were influential in the
