The Prince-class is the largest of the "new line" of merchant vessels produced by the Valkoria Consortium. The Prince-class is classified as a Super Cargo Carrier. It has top-of-the-line merchant shipping facilities, as well as strong offensive and defensive combat packages.
The Prince-class features the bulky body and huge cargo hulls found on standard cargo hauling vessels, while at the same time boasts of Federation-designed Excelsior-class warp coils and nacelles and the top half of a Niagara class saucer section - an engineering innovation initiated by former Starfleet engineers who are now with the Valkoria Merchant Fleet.
The front of the ship is dedicated to the command section, which includes the bridge, sickbay, crew quarters and passengers quarters, common areas, most sensors, a modest armory, and shuttlebays for various auxiliary craft. The cargo section is mostly uninhabitable. The warp core, antimatter storage and a backup control room are located in the aft section, as well as two loading ports, the impulse engines, and storage compartments for various materials for the ship's operation, as well as additional cargo. The deuterium is stored in the ship's mid section, between the cargo decks.
The Prince-class is 824 meters long, 494 meters wide, and 172 meters high. It has fifteen (15) crew decks and ten (10) huge cargo decks. Each cargo deck can accommodate large compartments measuring 66.5 meters x 44 meters x 20.5 meters each that are latched onto the ship's frame.
This ship class is run by a crew of 300, commanded by a Commodore of the merchant fleet. 30 of the crew are officers, while 270 are enlisted.
Onboard tactical systems
The class is protected by standard design Federation deflector shields. It also has an arsenal of eight (8) Type-X phaser arrays and three (3) torpedo launchers, with a total payload of two hundred fifty (250) photon torpedoes.
