Alternate Reality
(split 2233)

The Armstrong-type was a type of starship used by Starfleet in the mid-23rd century. This type was unique for Starfleet in that some of its ships were painted brown.

Specifications Edit

A typical ship of this type had two outboard nacelles and an inboard nacelle. These nacelles were connected by swept pylons to the underside of the primary hull. Similar to the Miranda-class starship in the prime reality, an Armstrong-type starship was equipped with a rollbar module. Extending from the trailing edge of the primary hull, and connected to the rollbar by smaller pylons, there was a structure housing the impulse drive.
