Star Trek The Next Generation. U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D.
To roll in with some cosmic fun, I've selected a poster from Star Trek's The Next Generation with the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D. In 2363 the Flagship of the Federation launched from Utopia Planitia Yards oribiting Mars. It was an exciting moment for Starfleet's Core of Engineers so I thought it worth mentioning. She was the finest in the fleet. The Federation's U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-D Galaxy Class flagship rose into the heavens. Fully equipped with her 42 decks gleaming, Dr Leah Brahm's warp-drive engines, a dilithium regulation chamber, lcars interface software, 3 computer cores, sensor arrays, 20 transporter systems, weapons, sickbay, 185 officers, 252 civilian families, crew quarters for 575 enlisted crew, and facilities for off duty personnel. The Enterprises powerful warp drive was ready to explore the stars.
Veridan III, scaring the wits out of poor Counselor Deanna Troi. Blackbeard ruined the Enterprise! Only Commander Data had enough brains to level the descent of the saucer section out but Riker......should be shot..
It takes strength of mind to captain all this 24th century technology and that honour definitely goes to Captain Jean Luc Picard. Congratulations "Mon Capitan." now have a heart and save me from the Calamarain. Still I have to ask you Jean Luc, how could you leave the Enterprise in the lurch with Riker in command of the Bridge? How could you let his happen, Picard? Even Q's baffled.
Using the chart, the Enterprise's Computer/Data Systems, Command/Facility Systems, Engine/Propulsion Systems, Tactical/Defense Systems, and Navigation/Transporter Systems are all easily detected using the poster's number color codes. So you'd better start learning where everything is and how they operate because your very life may depend upon them.
A rundown of the Enterprise's Warp Propulsion Systems, Impulse Propulsion Systems, Transporter Systems, Ship Duration, Communications Network, Sensor Systems, Tactical Systems are included with some fascinating starship specifications and are required learning for all Starfleet cadets.
For days, the trekkie inside me has been on a flight to another world. But time out. Whats that I hear? Its a little trekkie voice just crying out begging me to share my latest discovery with you. In the lower right hand corner of my Enterprise-D poster in tiny writing reads gbeye.com
Live Long and Prosper.
