Summary

Galaxy (II) is an uprated-Galaxy class spaceframe. Six of the Galaxy class spaceframes were mothballed following the loss of the Yamato (CKE 71807) in 2365 and it was decided to improve these designs. Though externally identical to the Galaxy class, the Galaxy (II) class incorporate significant improvements in tactical, propulsion, computers, and scientific suites. The sensor suites on these vessels are the equal of those on the Intrepid and Sovereign classes and make the Galaxy (II) the premier explorer in the fleet. The vessels of Galaxy (II) class were the first to be equipped with the Leading Energies LF-43 warp drive, which provides a 20% increase in peak power output over the LF-41 found on Galaxy and Nebula class. This raises the top sustained speed to Warp 9.9. The core upgrades to Galaxy (II) centered on tactical issues. A plan to install Type X+ megaphasers was shelved when suitable mounting points could not be engineered. Instead, the standard Type X collimator phaser arrays were greatly improved. The Type XII arrays deliver 50% more power. An addition array was added to the top of each nacelle to correct a gunnery blind spot. The Mk 95 quantum torpedo system has replaced the standard Mk 85. More powerful and with a faster loading system, the Mk 95 is capable of pulse-fire and rapid-fire modes. Two flights of Peregrine fighter craft were added to the vessels complement, along with an updated range of support craft. Additionally, the FCE-2 cloaking device is now fitted to the vessel. Computer systems have been upgraded to the M-16 Isolinear III core with bio-neural gel pack processors in addition to standard isolinear ones. In addition, the crew can utilize the EVE (Enhanced Visual interfacE) artificial-personality program in order to utilize computer functions, so far only USS Bright Star has been fitted with this upgrade. After the Dominion War, more Galaxy(II) starships were commissioned to meet the Fleet's growing need for ships that can both explore and fight in a renewed effort to "boldly go" where no one has gone before.
