[TFT6] USS Yellow Submarine

Post by jayphailey » Mon Sep 09, 2019 10:06 pm

Profile USS Yellow Submarine NCC-93652

Summary - The USS Yellow Submarine is a Galaxy-class starship that has been modified into a battleship.

The ship has more knurdlies and devices than a regular Galaxy Class. On the top of the main shuttle bay behind the Bridge hump is a docking adapter for an Aquarius class light escort, usually the USS Virinat

The major differences inside the ship are in terms of vastly reinforced structure, heavy compartmentalization and multiply redundant systems. The Yellow Submarine can take a terrible pounding and continue to be combat effective.

The Yellow Submarine's phaser banks are supercharged and leveraged eleven ways from Sunday.

Compared to a stock Galaxy-class the Yellow Submarine is a much more effective combatant, but could not live as long away from base and resupply. The Yellow Submarine burns through fuel, spare parts and supplies at a fierce rate. She's a spendy girl to keep flying but she can go toe-to-toe with almost anything an enemy can throw at her.

The ship also shows multiple repairs and rebuilds from previous combat damage.

The Yellow Submarine has large Sick Bays and facilities for holding prisoners or refugees.

The Yellow Submarine has corridors and rooms from the 2360s up to modern times. This is because each rebuild only replaced what was strictly necessary, so old equipment, if it was intact was reinstalled because that was the quicker, easier route.

Similarly, when corridors and rooms were damaged, replacements were just cloned from the lastest default models and then hacked to fit. So the Yellow Submarine does not have a unified internal look.

The Yellow Submarine is not worth rebuilding into a more classical Galaxy-class. There's been too much done and then too much damaged and replaced. It would be cheaper and easier to build a new ship.

She is a creature of a wartime Federation and when no longer needed, she will be retired and then recycled.

The ship started out as the USS Discovery from an alternate timeline but was pulled into the main STO timeline and hacked into the battleship they needed at the time. Jay Six was asked to rename her because they already had too many Discovery's. Jay picked "Yellow Submarine" because of his fondness for the Beatles and because it was unlikely to be a repeat.

- Ship Name USS Yellow Submarine NCC-93652

- Brief description of ship
A formerly Elegant ship, hacked into a utilitarian weapons system

- Campaign role for the ship
To Carry Jay Six and his crew into trouble, usually of the fighty kind.

- Fleet role
Flagship and Frontline Combatant.

- Age: Approximately 38 years old

- Distinguishing Marks (Odd paint job, repair scars etc.)

On deep scans, she looks like a Frankenstein's monster due to receiving numerous repairs at multiple shipyards.

She is kept freshly painted to disguise this from casual scans and observers.

She has a docking adaptor borrowed from an Odesessy class starship on the top of the main hull just behind the bridge. This usually carries the Aquarius class USS Viriniat which sometimes acts as escort and fire support for the Yellow Submarine.

At red alert, her power systems run hot and her phasers scan as supercharged and technologically leveraged.

- Equipment Quirks and Problems:
Because of being rebuilt as a combat ship, the USS Yellow Submarine isn't as good at the non-combat roles a stock Galaxy-class would be good for.

The Yellow Submarine is maintenance heavy and uses up fuel and supplies at a fierce rate, commensurate with her effectiveness in combat.

Even assuming a ready supply of fuel, materials, and supplies, she only has a few more years to live until she uses up her space frame.

She can win battles. Its what she's good at. But this has come at a fierce toll.

Quantum Slipstream Drive
She has "Quantum Slipstream Drive" - this system mixes strange technology with a starships main deflector and warp drive to increase speed drastically. The downside is that the ship becomes a subspace beacon. People can see a QS Drive in operation a great distance away and it can't turn very much. Ships with this system in place can cover 15 lightyears per day... in a straight(ish) line. Once the QS drive is stopped it takes a while to recharge.

This technology has allowed Starfleet ships MUCH better reaction times and strategic travel capability than their normal dilithium based warp drives.

Where the Enterprise-D was built around versatility and flexibility with an internal module system to allow conversions to interesting missions, the Yellow Submarines frame reinforcements have crippled this. She can only change out 20% of the modules that the Enterprise-D could in 2364.

During the combat refit, the Yellow Submarine was refit as a hospital ship with extra sickbay facilities, supplies, and refugee support capability.

So the Yellow Submarine can function as a heavily armed and armored hospital ship, a mission she has undertaken often during the war.

The Yellow Submarine carries more doctors, nurses and medical professionals than a normal Galaxy class, but commensurate with a hospital ship built on a light cruiser hull.

- Equipment Advantages
Using reverse engineered Iconian and Voth technology, the Yellow Submarine has vastly increased power compared to a 2364 Galaxy-class. Her weapons are much more powerful and her shields and defenses are much more effective.

The crew of the Yellow Submarine is good at utilizing their equipment in non-standard ways to surprise enemies.

- Shuttles, number, any odd ones?
The Yellow Submarine is packed with a grab bag of shuttles and small ships, including Orion and Romulan models. She also has old relics hacked into modern useful vehicles.

The principle weird sub-ships carried by the Yellow Submarine are drones - these are unmanned ships, based on the Delta Flyer runabout. They have crew spaces and can be converted to manned use easily, but the purpose of these is to act as remote sensor and phaser platforms by the Yellow Submarine. The YS has a control room were pilots in control pods fly the Drone Delta Fliers using multiphasic subspace communications and control gear.

In combat, these small ships don't last long, but properly utilized they can be very helpful. They're more helpful under non-combat situations.

The Yellow Submarine is equipped to control 4 at a time but carries numerous such drones.

Different Starbases build different small ships, so the YS would pick up drone Danube class or drone Yellowstone class runabouts, as well as occasionally looting Orion or Klingon units.

- Notable Previous Crew:
Section 31 scrubbed the ship and her computers before assigning her to Jay Six. He doesn't know who the previous crew was, nor what happened to them.

- Primary Power:
The Yellow Submarine uses a Dilithium moderated power core that is stupidly large, overpowered and overbuilt. And still, it won't last long at combat power. But it can generate power at amazing rates

- Secondary Power:
The Yellow Submarines Impulse drives are large and leveraged to turn deuterium into go at an amazing rate. Like the rest of the ship, they won't last long at Military power, but they only need to win the next battle.

- Primary Weapons:
The Yellow Submarine mounts quadruply enhanced class XV Phaser banks. The dorsal array is a "Quantum-Phase Phaser Beam Array" which adds weird energy in order to attack shields of enemy units.

- Secondary Weapons:
The Yellow Submarine Mounts a Fore mounted torpedo launcher. (The rear was removed to make room for more phasers.) It throws Class XV Quantum Phase Photon Torpedoes.

These hit like "normal" Class XV Photon Torpedoes, but do five times that damage to enemy (and nearby) shields. A good bracket with these can strip the shields off anything smaller than the Yellow Submarine and severely weaken the protection of anything larger.

The Drone Runabouts can also be considered a secondary weapon.

Occasionally the Yellow Submarine tests interesting test weapons or systems to evaluate them for the war effort.

- Service History
After being rebuilt as a space control dreadnought, She was assigned to Admiral Jay Six and crew. The Yellow Submarine has fought from Earth to Q'onoS and across the galaxy battling enemies of the Grand Alliance.

She's still in good shape for now, but she shows her battle scars to those who know where to look and she has a limited time remaining.

On a scale of 1 - 1000 where 1000 is the Enterprise-D of 2364.

Science capacity - 800 Not as fully equipped any more

Crew Comfort - 800, the ship is run tighter and on a more strict schedule

Duration - 200 in combat, 500 if she stretches

Medical facilities - 2000

Tactical maneuvering - 1100

Strategic Speed - 15,000 Quantum Slip Stream drive is nowhere as good as Disodium drives, but it is comparably fast

Defense - [redacted], Advanced Class XV shields with quadruple enhancements

Offense - [redacted], can be craazy violent

Versatility - 400 Her size and number of crew help, but her flexibility has been replaced by heavy reinforcement

Internal Security - [redacted] After infiltration by the changelings and the Undine, and battling the Borg they're a little paranoid.

Note, the crew has nanites which store encrypted data in molecular chains in their bones. Any Changling or Undine who tries to impersonate them will fail immediately (Although they might not know this for a bit). The encryption programs are complex and difficult with the intention that they would be difficult to break properly in a timely fashion.

They also have healing nanites which help them recover from injuries, and render them resistant (Not immune) to Borg assimilation.

They have multiple-step verification of all important systems and places.

The crews also tend to walk around armed and ready to fight, thanks to the Undine or the Iconian tendency to drop enemy forces where they're least expected, and the explosion of bandits, pirates and partisans in the aftermath of the war, the crew of Taffy Six have to be ready to fight at a moments notice.

A note on Holograms - They come in 3 modes

Mode 1 - Classic - this is an AI running on a remote machine who manifests a holographic persona to interact with, uses holograms and force fields to simulate having a solid body when convenient.

Mode 2 - Mobile - In this case the Hologram is an AI running on a dedicated unit.

The Original was EMH Mk 1 who acquired a 29th-century mobile holoprojector.

25th-century holoprojectors are much more bulky units, composed of a cylinder with a globe on top. This device floats and manifests the hologram of the selected persona, using force fields to simulate touching and to manipulate objects.

Mode 3 Robust Mobile - This case is for combat and survival purposes. The Hologram is run on a dedicated brain inside a robotic skeleton. The skeleton is tuned to the size and proportions desired by the Holographic person and their hologram is projected over it. The unit usually has hands designed to mimic the size and shape of the selected persona.

This device is more limited than the classic and mobile forms. But it uses far less energy and is less vulnerable to disruption, blocking or technological dampening efforts than the other forms. Holograms describe it as a sort of armored exoskeleton for holograms.

As Starfleet of this timeline is using a lot of Holograms and AIs to help with the war, consideration is given to their survivability and comfort.

Each Starship is equipped with a system designed to run numerous AIs and allow them to manifest holograms at convenient and appropriate places, But this system has limited access to the ship's main computers to prevent hostile AIs from taking over as easily.
