Prepare for cyberwar

Based upon the succesful Baud class subspace relay ship, Starfleet Command issued the construction of a starship dedicated for espionage and cyberwarfare. The resulting Enigma class surveyor was equipped with a large subspace communications array and the most up-to-date computer system eclisped only by the Excelsior class a decade later. Whilst relatively fast and equipped for hostilities, Enigmas usually relied on the escort of Saladin class destroyers.

The ship in this image, the USS Mitnick, participated in the Invasion of Kzinhome during the Federation-Kzinti War. Although not recieving such orders, the Captain of the starship, Larry Halverson (also known as Master_Elephant in the hacker community) ordered his ship to join the Federation fleet. The crew of the Mitnick personally declared cyberwar upon the Kzinti, managing to scramble the whole of Kzinhome's communications systems via logic bombs. This act enabled the spearhead of the Federation fleet to cut through most of the Kzinti home system's defence outposts...

Interesting concept, I like it!

Y'know, this ship could be used by the Federation to wage war on the Borg, ala The Matrix! ;) :D

Great concept-reminds me of The Sprawl Trilogy by William Gibson, but translated to Star Trek, with all of the console cowboys and cowgirls working for Starfleet and hunched around sets of Hosaka computers hoked up to Ono-Sendai cyberspace rigs, making a mess of somebody else's computer system and fucking it up really badly.

I wonder if Case or Thomas Anderson (aka Neo) is a part of the crew of this ship, with Molly Millions as a Security guard (Redshirt)....

Just seen that. I laughed out loud at "USS Mitnick"! Awesome name!

Thank you!

Mitnick is worthy of being named a ship after :D

Cyberspace (in the William Gibson sense) does, I'll bet.

Really interesting design Dave. Does the dish retract? If not, it would really mess up the formation of the warp field, wouldn't it?
davemetlesits's avatar
Thank you very much!

No, the dish can extend but this is the "in" position". And yes, she's not a stable Warp geometry.

All I can think of when I hear Mitnick is the Nosferatu techno geek in VTM:B.
