The AGAMEMNON-class battle cruiser is a completely dedicated warship with comparatively limited scientific research capability as evidenced in a reduced number of laboratories. This is not a problem -- the AGAMEMNON class is a ship designed to combat. No other ship in the Federation inventory combines speed and armament into as elegant and lethal a package as the AGAMEMNON class.
Armed with 6 MkIII Flux Torpedo launchers and 8 Mk-X Phaser banks, the AGAMEMNON class is a formidable foe. But with the addition of the Mk-Xc Phaser Cannon, mounted on the underside of the primary hull, the AGAMEMNON class is truly deadly in combat. The addition of eight pulse phasers in four turrents completes this ships transformation to a battle cruiser with weaponry comparable to that of a battleship, speed greater than a battleship, and armor less than a battleship.
The AGAMEMNON class holds 490 Marines and a number of support vehicles, including 6 dropships. These specially designed transports permit rapid deployment of troops to planets, other ships, and the like.
Unlike the GALAXY-class cruisers and her cousins, the AGAMEMNON-class ship cannot separate narrow, knife-like saucer section from the secondary hull. In fact, the secondary hull houses many more of the primary systems and crew quarters than on most Federation starships. Also unlike most Federation cruisers, because of the nature of the missions taken on by the AGAMEMNON-class ships, civillians are not permitted to remain on the ship for extended periods of time.
New for the Mark II:
The latest version of the AGAMEMNON is equipped with Starfleet's newest phaser systems. The Xg is a modification of the Xf extended range phaser. The Xg uses a variable, multiple gravitic lense system to further increase the precision of beam focus and reduce the loss of the crystaline lenses of the Xf. These beams are much more tightly focused than the standard type X phaser allowing for much greater range, thus providing the option to engage most enemies beyond their energy weapon range. However, the Xg's are not without drawbacks. An advanced targeting or sensor system is required for long range attacks, recharge time is over two times that of the type X, and the power output of the phaser is greatly reduced with range:
- 100,000 km- 150% type X at similar range
- 200,000 km- 109% type X at similar range
- 300,000 km- 91% type X at similar range
- 350,000 km- 85% peak output of type X at 300,000 km
- 400,000 km- 80% peak output of type X at 300,000 km
- 450,000 km- 75% peak output of type X at 300,000 km
The Xg phasers are mounted in ball-shaped turrets that restrict the fields of fire. To handle the Xg phasers power demands, improved high- density phaser capacitors have been incorporated, bestowing greater endurance upon a AGAMEMNON in a sustained engagement. To complement the type Xg phasers, the AGAMEMNON incorporates eight enhanced type XI emitters which improve range over the basic type X for improved standard attack distances. Four XIa enhanced pulse phasers and siz torpedo launchers, as well as an XIc phaser cannon, help to round out the ship's offensive capabilities.
The XIa enhanced pulse phasers were first deployed in hull pods on the NEW ORLEANS Model III (CAVALLA class) light cruisers. The larger size of the battlecruiser allowed a turretted arrangement for the weapon, similar to conventional Xa pulse phaser cannons, but allowing for the enhanced range capabilities of the XIa.
Also incorporated in the latest upgrade to this class is a point defense system, bringing its defenses into the modern age.
New for the Mark III:
The Mark III variant of the AGAMEMNON-class incorporates the same revolutionary new sublight drive introduced on the FEARLESS-calss heavy cruiser. The ship's dimension warp nodes have been modified to serve as the ship's main method of sublight propulsion. This new drive operates by planing gravity in normal space, providing an acceleration potential greater than standard impulse drives. However, available inertial compensator technology is not able to take advantage of the drive's full potential. Effectively, the new drive system bestows a 5% edge in maneuverability and acceleration upon the Mark III variant battlecruisers, making her handle like an impulse driven ship of only about 4.5 Mmt. This new drive system is appearing in most new Star Fleet designs as well as being retrofitted into a number of vessel capable of dimension warp. The gravitic dynamic planing drive system uses the hyperspace nodes of the dimensional drive in a secondary mode with limited hardware changes to produce its propulsion effect.
