Department Announcements
  • January 11, 2021: The Nightingale-Class (Medical) Cruiser has been approved and the Engineering Department has established a temporary specification page HERE until such a time that it can be included in the STF Technical Manual. Congratulations to the design team of Cale, Linds and Nick and the crew of the Ogawa for the shiny new ship.
  • December 20, 2020: The Nightingale-Class Cruiser (Medical) has been posted for review HERE. All participants are reminded to keep any discussion productive and impersonal. While all club members are invited to participate, as this vessel is designed for use as the permanent specification for the *USS Ogawa*, past, present or future crew members of the USS Ogawa or those with an interest in Starfleet Medical are especially encouraged to join the discussion.
  • December 19, 2020: The Moscow-Class Medium Surveyor has been posted for review HERE. All participants are reminded to keep any discussion productive and impersonal. This is intended to be an RP environment; view this spec as if you would be using it as a main ship spec.
  • November 7, 2020: The Avenger-Class Escort Destroyer (NPC/Support) Mark II has been posted for review HERE. All participants are reminded to keep any discussion productive and impersonal. All club members are invited to participate in the discussion, although as an NPC/Support vehicle, and as a vessel in use on Oed V, GMs and the crew of Oed V are encouraged to take part.
  • November 7, 2020: The Independence-class Heavy Frigate (TOS) has been posted for review HERE. All participants are reminded to keep any discussion productive and impersonal.

  • October 25, 2020: (Australian time) The Nightingale-Class Cruiser (Medical)'s review has come to a close and the specs have been returned to the design team for another round of revisions.

  • October 10, 2020: The Nightingale-Class Cruiser (Medical) has been posted for review HERE. All participants are reminded to keep any discussion productive and impersonal.

  • October 1, 2020 With the approval of the Baker-class Heavy (Support) Observer, the Engineering Department has established a temporary specification page here until such a time as it can be included in the STF Technical Manual. All club members may use the specification for purposes of backstory or as part of a sim that requires additional Starfleet vessels outside of the main ship.
  • August 22, 2020: The Baker-class Heavy (Support) Explorer has been posted for review HERE. All participants are reminded to keep any discussion productive and impersonal. While all club members are invited to participate, as this vessel is designed for use as an NPC vessel only, current and former GMs are especially encouraged to join the discussion.

Temporary Specification Pages
Retired Specifications

Until they are formally included in the Technical Manual, the Engineering Department has a list of approved specifications available to view. Please note that these have not gone through the process of copy editing, and therefore may have typos or slight grammatical errors present.

As the Museum only includes specifications used prior to the creation of Standardized Ship Specification Format, there have been many specifications which have been taken out of the Technical Manual, but which are not available for viewing. As such, until a different alternative is reached, EDept is maintaining a list of retired specs for historic record. Please note that none of these specifications are being actively used in the club, and therefore are not under active maintenance.
