OVERVIEW OF THE SHIP AND SPECIFICATIONS
(by Stuart Baldwin ( Narsil))
The Interceptor class starship is an accumulation of five years of research and development. The task Starfleet Command gave it’s engineers was to create a relatively small, multi-platform starship that utilized the current state-of-the-art technologies, and was short on construction time and costs.
In later 2366, Starfleet was still feeling the strong effects from the devastating battle with the Borg Collective at Wolf 359. Some said it was a “Wake up Call” for Starfleet Command. There had been those both on the in and out side of Starfleet that felt the fleet had become “soft”. Not ready for the possible threats that may lay ahead. However, at the same time, there was the opposition to making Starfleet “too militaristic”. Foremost, Starfleet was an organization of peace and exploration. Defense and protection of Federation territories was also one of it prime functions. Ever since the founding of the Federation, there were those that shun the idea of a Starfleet vessel that its sole purpose was for war and combat. But, despite these types of protest, Starfleet Command felt they had no choice. This was the beginning of developing new ships and weapons to stop overwhelming forces, such as the Borg, with out sacrificing the entire fleet.
Just a few months after Wolf 359, new classes of starships and weapons were put up on the drawing board. Some vessels had been in the design phase for several years at this point. Others were so far ahead, it would take years to figure out how they would work. Then there were those that were feasible, and a working prototype could be built and tested with in a three to five year time span. Some of these vessels included the Defiant, Prometheus, Sovereign, and Interceptor classes. The Defiant project was one that first caught the attention of the admiralty. Also the Prometheus, with it’s revolutionary multi-vector assault mode intrigued Stafleet. Starfleet green lit these projects that would bring the Defiant and Prometheus into realization. The Sovereign class, whose finalized design work was almost complete, was ordered into construction phase. The Interceptor on the other hand, was put on the back burner. But in doing so, the Interceptor would benefit from the development and construction of these new starships.

|Awesome mesh you've got here, I've been to the Interceptor site before adn I really like the design. 10/10 |

|If this looks half as good in-game as in the pictures shown, then it's a must-have! This does seem like a logical evolution of intrepid class, instead of that weird ship with the sernaix armour or whatever it's called(which is not available for download at this site, but no great loss, this version is better anyways). This reminds me of the achilles class done by Major Payne(kick **** model by the way), this is really believable as voyager-A, perhaps as a tactical cruiser of some sort. Anyways this model looks really nice, I just downloaded a new san fransisco ship yard and this is definately going into my game!! |

|Can you picture three of these sweeping out from cover behind a nebula? Makes using the Tactical view worthwhile again. For MAP to praise it, it must really be righteous. |

|I placed this in my personal Mod last night, adding the Engine Overload as a special weapon, and I was incredibly happy with the results. Highly recommend this as it was created by someone who knows Fed starships. |
