A relatively complete overview of the different types of technology available in the ASR universe.
A listing of the different classifications used by the United Federation of Planets Star Fleet Engineering Bureau of Ships for its starships. These classifications are also used by the Bureau of Alien Technology Assessment for non-Federation starships.
How many crew are in the XYZ department?
Starships generally carry a wide variety of smaller space ships, often referred to as shuttles which have limited interstellar capability. This set of documents describes them.
Conventional shuttle craft are those assigned for general duty use such as carrying personnel or cargo. They do not have specific combat roles.
Marine dropships are intended for the deployment of marines in combat. They are capable of both boarding actions through the hull of a starship and high angle entry of the atmosphere of a planetary body.
Combat shuttles, often generically referred to as fighters, are specialized small craft intended for combat. They generally have faster top speed, more armament, more armor, and stronger shields than conventional shuttle craft.
Details of the weaponry and other systems aboard combat shuttles.
An explanation of maneuvering for shuttle craft in general, and combat shuttles in particular.
Every space-faring craft has times when it needs to protect itself from damage either from natural or artificial sources.
A general overview to the different types of defensive technology.
How do deflector shields actually work?
What happens to energies that manage to get through the shields to the hull?
How can a starship prevent weapons fire from hitting it?
Drones are a versitile tactical system, originally based on standard probes, which has both offensive and defensive applications.
Can a starship actively stop incoming weapons fire?
How do the traditional Romulan and Klingon-style cloaking devices work?
How do other cloaking devices work?
How does a space ship move from point A to point B?
A general overview of the types of propulsion systems available on space ships
How does a ship move within a star system? Impulse and gravity planing drive systems.
What are the physics which actually govern movement at sublight speeds?
How does conventional warp drive work?
How fast are the different warp speeds?
What is dimensional warp? How does hyperspace travel work?
How close to a star or planet can a starship actually use its warp and d-warp drives safely?
How does a space ship "see" what is around it?
A general primer on sensor systems
How do starship sensors work?
What does an "Augur" sensor suite do?
===Delphi Array=== (No longer in production) What does an "Delphi" sensor suite do?
What does an "Oracle" sensor suite do?
What does an "Scimitar" sensor suite do?
A deployable probe-like module with special systems to enhance sensor capability.
There comes a time when one starship is going to try to destroy another starship.

How do phasers work?
How do photon torpedoes work?
How do life support systems work?
How do starships communicate?
How are computer systems organized?
How are starships powered?
Star Fleet Marine Corps
There are cetani technologies which are specific to the Star Fleet Marine Corps. While they share combat shuttles with the Star Fleet Navy, the special needs of the Corps dictate specialized equipment that has limited used in ship-to-ship engagements or the peaceful exploration of space.

What vehicles are used by the Star Fleet Marine Corps?
What makes a command ship different?
How is a starship bridge laid out?
