U.S.S. Valhalla (NCC - 18000)
The VALHALLA-class command battle cruiser is a warship with comparatively limited scientific research capability as evidenced in a reduced number of laboratories. This is not a problem as the VALHALLA-class is a ship designed for Fleet coordination and combat roles. It also contains an aft launch bay for 12 combat shuttles adding to its strategic and tactical multi-role purpose.
The VALHALLA-class holds 400 Marines and a number of support vehicles, including 6 dropships. These specially designed transports are for a rapid deployment of troops for boarding or planetary activities.
Also incorporated in this design is a point defense system and a fighter launching system, aft of the ship.
The first ship of this class, the USS VALHALLA, NCC 18000 was launched in 2419 under the command of Captain Cameron Carver. Her sister ship, the USS VALKYRIE, NCC 18001 was launched early the next year. So far only four starships of this class have been commissioned by the year 2422.
VALHALLA-class command battlecruisers are named for Norse mythical gods, heroes, events/places, and creatures.
The VALHALLA's sister ships are the USS VALKYRIE, NCC 18001 and the USS ODIN, NCC 18002.
The next four vessels scheduled for commissioning are the USS RAGNAROK, NCC 18003; the USS FENRIR, NCC 18004; the USS HEIMDALL, NCC 18006; the USS SIF, NCC 18007 in 2423; and the USS TYR, NCC 18008 in 2424.
The USS THOR, NCC 18005 was scheduled to be commissioned shortly after the ODIN, but a design flaw was discovered and construction was halted. It has been scheduled for completion in 2424.
