Verne class (SFC)

Rapid improvements in warp drive technology resulted in the launch of the advanced Verne class cruiser on Reference Stardate 0/6410 (May 2079), which boasted a crew complement of 112. It was noteworthy as the first warp-capable class equipped with launch tubes and thermonuclear hydrogen-fusion torpedoes. The class also featured separated multi-drive warp engines, which used a 35:1 intermix ratio and provided for a much more efficient warp drive. The class would see 120 built, and would remain in service until 2141.[1][2]

Notes

  1. Although Star Trek: Spaceflight Chronology established that the Verne class was capable of speeds in excess of Warp 2, this is explicitly contradicted in the Enterprise episode "First Flight," in which Commanders Jonathan Archer and A.G. Robinson are the first Humans to break the Warp 2 barrier in 2140. The speeds of the Verne class have been adjusted to reflect this.
