The finished version of the star trek explorer design I've been working on the last couple of days.
Decided to call it the Hudson Class after Henry Hudson a english explorer who sailed to the Arctic for the Dutch East India Company.
Having a crew of 280 with an emergency capacity to carry up to 3000 people the Hudson is one of several new programs commisioned by Starfleet Command to increase its exploration fleet.
Armed with two phaser rings on the saucer, dual photon/quantum launcher located in the neck and phaser emitters positioned on the nacelles and engineering section it can stand its own ground when engaging hostiles.
Capable of achieving warp 9.85 (1 hour) its main cruising speed is warp 8 and only needs to return to resupply or refit once in a year.
Thefinal image I will upload of the old manual project.
The Monarch Class dreadnought was originally designed by S1Gunman and changed to fit in the manual by myself is supposed to be the largest vessel the Earth Coalition can wield during the early start of the Earth/Romulan War.
Huge and and well armed the ship lacks speed and agility.
It is mainly found as a fleet command vessel and is always escorted by smaller vessels for close combat.
