: History And Mission Overview
: The Flying Angel Class is a racing Yacht designed by Starfleet engineering officer Lieutenant Tralla Zoarhi of the USS Ark Angel during first contact by the USS Ark Angel with the Tri-Party Confederation in 2391. At the time, the Tri-Party Confederation had only discovered warp drive a few years ago and was just getting ready to celebrate the end of a long, bloody war with a competition that included a shuttle race as well as other competitive events. Lieutenant Zoarhi was the Chief Engineer of the USS Ark Angel and proposed building a whole new craft for this race. The Flying Angel would be that craft. The prototype which flew in the race was not being fully outfitted with the following specs due to restrictions for the competition and a self-imposed restriction of the impulse engines and maneuvering thrusters being at only three quarter the normal power levels.
: After the contest, Zoarhi and her team finished outfitting and bringing the full Flying Angel design to light. What resulted was a General Purpose craft that could not only find uses in Starfleet, but also the civilian field as a pure racing ship, minus the weaponry. Captain Andone even adopted the prototype as her own personal Captain’s Yacht in place of one of the USS Ark Angel’s Armadillo shuttles that was at the time considered unusable, due to strange coincidences and incidents of disrepair.
: Mission Profiles
: Mission profiles for The Flying Angel are as follows:
: Civilian or Starfleet sub-light racing contests
: Mid-range warp travel from parent craft
: General use and transportation around the fleet
: With pre-flight preparations of its general purpose area, the Flying Angel can also fulfill the following profiles:
: Basic medical triage
: Basic scientific analysis and studies
: Structure And Construction
: When viewed from above, the Flying Angel looks roughly circular in shape. However, the aft section flattens out, while the forward section resembles something like a trident. Two wing-like pylons in shape form from the main hull of the ship which contain the integrated warp nacelles. The hull plating on the pylons here are styled to look like angel wings. The main hull comes to a nose that is more squared off and boxy, however it shares the streamlined styling that is present throughout the rest of the design. The nose piece contains the cockpit and the deflector. Entry is gained to the ship by either an aft facing sliding cargo door, a port side sliding door, or by an emergency dorsal hatch. Explosive emergency bolts allow blow out of any of these door or hatch if needed in a crash.
: General Purpose Room
: Behind the cockpit is a single room setup as a customizable general purpose area that can allow basic medical and scientific study roles if needed. By default, though the Flying Angel contains only basic provisioning and storage space in this room. A single layer bulkhead and door separate this general purpose module from the rest of the cockpit and craft. Behind this room is the Crew Sleeping area, and replication systems. The general Purpose area room is 5 meters long by 5 meters wide.
: Science And Remote Sensing Systems
: The Flying Angel is equipped with a Type-IV sensor array that features a high-resolution range of 1.53 light years and a low-resolution range of 5.0 light years. The pallets are mounted above the cockpit, the center of the ventral main hull and finally above the impulse engines in the aft dorsal hull. Both pilot and co-pilot consoles can activate and use the sensors at any given time.
: Computer Core & Network Systems
: The Flying Angel class contains at the rear of the cockpit a shelf of 25 isolinear rods which make up its computer core. The ship’s data and system commands are sent via a simple isolinear based network. The ship runs on the LCARS 7.0 operating system with MAJEL voice interface.
: Warp Propulsion Systems
: The Flying Angel comes equipped with a 392+ Cochrane Rated Class-3 Starship warp core. This core has a cruising speed of Warp 3.0 a maximum sustainable speed of Warp 5.0, a 12 hour maximum speed of Warp 6.0 and in an emergency can reach Warp 6.7 for 1 hour before shutdown. This core feeds the two nacelles located in the wing like pylons on sides of the ship. Ejection systems propel the core out the top of the ship in in an emergency.
: Impulse Propulsion Systems
: The single dual vented impulse engine is located in the aft end of the hull. This engine can propel the Flying Angel to a maximum speed of .30c in 10 seconds and to a full stop in 12 seconds. Coupled with high powered RCS thruster packets along the hull corners provides the Flying Angel with unmatched sublight maneuverability, both for racing maneuvers and combative evasive maneuvers.
: Tactical Systems
: Phaser Systems
: The Flying Angel is equipped with two fully circular, 360 degree firing, Type-6 phaser arrays, with 25 emitters each. They are positioned with one dorsal and one ventral along the central axis of the hull. The Type-6 arrays can output 0.5 megawatts out to a maximum effective range of 30,000 kilometers. Due to much of the ship’s energy channeled to the engines by default the usual range and output of the Type-6 system was reduced. The civilian model of this ship lacks this weaponry by default.
: Torpedo Launching Systems
: The Flying Angel comes equipped with a single forward firing Type-2 micro torpedo/probe launcher, mounted above the ship’s cockpit on the dorsal side of the hull. The launching system, can fire out to a range of 175,000 kilometers and can launch a single micro probe/photon torpedo every 4 seconds. The Flying Angel by default carries 15 micro photon torpedoes and 15 micro assorted scientific probes by default. Due to limitations of storage space the casing load out is less than other similar sized vessels. Again, as with the phaser system the civilian model of the ship lacks such armaments.
: Shield Systems
: The Flying Angel mounts the Type-3 shield array system. Emitters are placed in rows of two in a rectangular pattern along the sides of the ship’s hull. The system has a maximum graviton load of 268 megawatts and a maximum dissipation rate of 7.3x10^4 kilowatts.
: Command & Support Systems
: Located at the front of the ship, is the Flying Angel’s 2-person cockpit. Containing consoles for a single pilot and co-pilot, the ship requires only one to operate fully. When 2 pilots are used they share equal responsibility for the piloting of the ship in flight.
: The cockpit is shaped as an angular nose in scope, with both pilot’s consoles at the front, at the aft starboard side are the single person transporter pad and to the aft port side the ship’s computer core and network access.
: Behind these two spots to port and starboard are a single standing pair of auxiliary console interfaces for miscellaneous crew use. The cockpit is 5 Meters wide by 5 meters long.
: Utility Systems
: Transporter System
: At the rear of the cockpit, the Flying Angel contains a single person transporter pad. It can beam in or out to a maximum range of 5,000 kilometers.
: Tractor Beam Systems
: Mounted aft on the Flying Angel is a small tractor emitter capable of carrying up to 900 metric tons out to a range of 50 kilometers. By default, the civilian model of the Flying Angel does not include a tractor beam system. However, with a short refit of two days interested civilian parties can have it installed by a certified Starfleet Merchants Company.
: Crew Support Systems
: Sleeping Area & Replication Systems
: The Flying Angel contains provisions and a small spartan area behind the cockpit for up to 5 people, complete with a single food replicator and a single small industrial parts replicator. This room is located behind the general purpose area room, it is 5 meters wide by 5 meters long.

: Ships Of The Class
: Ships of the Flying Angel class have varied names and registries as such no list exist for public viewing of all current ship names and registries.
: OOC: Players using this spec in a sim for long term use on a PC ship in the fleets are asked to inform the EDept of the name and registry as well as if it is a civilian or starfleet model for record keeping purposes.
: The Flying Angel is a fast, maneuverable, and capable small scale ship. Used by both Starfleet and civilian concerns alike, the Flying Angel is used for racing and for whatever life throws at her. Starfleet itself expects more roguish, fun-loving Captains in the fleet to make room for at least one of these small ships on their vessel in the coming years.
