Oslo Class Starship Revealed

Oslo Class Starship Revealed -

Cryptic has published information about the Oslo class ship, a new class of starship that will be available to Starfleet in Star trek Online.

Beginning in the early 2390s, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers championed a plan that called for modular ship designs, with components that could easily be switched out or replaced. Modular construction had been a part of Starfleet design philosophy for decades, but was greatly expanded after the Dominion War.

Heavy losses in remote sectors of space made it clear to Starfleet that the traditional procedures of returning to a starbase or massive shipyard for repairs or upgrades was not feasible during times of conflict or for ships on deep space missions. The modular design allows ship's crews to be able to make more repairs in the field and enables salvaged components to be reused on a variety of ships. An added benefit of modular construction is that starships can be modified for specific missions or to accommodate crew needs.

One of the ships to be designed in this manner was the new Oslo class. The design is based on the Norway class from the 2370s, but the Oslo is constructed to allow it to exchange many components with its sister ships, the Akira and the Zephyr. Because the Oslo is a heavy escort that will often be on the frontlines of battle, this ease of repair and retrofitting makes it possible for engineering teams to use the components they have on hand to get the ship back in fighting condition quickly after a conflict, limiting the delays caused by returning to a friendly spacedock.
