Weapons and Defensive Systems
The Chernov is equipped with two long range phaser systems, adding up to 16 phaser turrets spaced around the Chernov's hull, and is also equipped with two Torpedo firing tubes, and carries a load of 150 Photon Torpedoes. In the Prime Universe, ships are usually also equipped with quantum torpedoes, but these have not been invented yet. There are eight shield generators plotted around the hull, which act the same as they would in the Prime Universe, just with less effectiveness. In terms of personal weapons, there are 3 main types of phasers: Type 1, which are small, concealable phasers; Type 2, which are standard hand phasers; and Type 3, which are phaser rifles. Phasers in the Prime Universe tend to have 16 settings in total, where as aboard the Chernov, there are only two: Stun and Kill. There are enoguh phaser aboard to arm every member of the crew, since the crew size is significatly smaller than a ship in the Prime Universe.
