Description

Description Omaha is a Flight V Ambassador-class starship, launched in 2358 and refit in 2393. From the perspective of a modern Starfleet officer, the ship is starting to show its age. Despite the inclusion of many behind-the-scenes improvements like holographic emitters and bio-neural computing systems, it's still a bit old-fashioned. The corridors are a little more cramped and the quarters just a bit smaller than you'd find on even an Intrepid-class; the layout of the engine room and bridge lack modern sensibilities for size and layout. The reactor has been upgraded but the engines are never going to push Warp 9.9, much less quantum slipstream.

Still, there are some advantages. The large size - slightly bigger internally than a Sovereign-class starship, in fact - means that there's plenty of room for crew, in particular a large science complement made possible by increased automation since the ship was first launched. The lab space has also increased, with the theoretical capacity to run almost five hundred simulateneous experiments even before mission-adaptable space is used. The ship may not be sleek and fast, but the compact shape results in superior shield density to almost any other ship this size.
