NOTE: This requires the use of all the ships available power, except life support. After it's     use the ship requires sixty seconds for power to return to all of her systems. During power     up and recharge the Ark Royal is completely defenseless.

Anti-matter Spread Emitter

Deflector Shields (First Generation Trans-spatial): This new shielding system builds a back-buffer shield in addition to the primary shield. When sufficient damage is taken to the primary shield, the back buffer is phased through to replace the primary while it regenerates within the protection of the new primary shield. This new system consumes a good deal of energy, which is supplied by half a dozen fusion reactors arrayed near the shield emitters. The new shields also incorperate every advancement Starfleet has made in the last 20 years (ie. Auto modulating, Meta-phasic shielding, Regenerative, and Multi-Spatial shielding technology)
Total Output Capacity: 6.9 million terrajoules

Embarked Craft

Shuttlebay 1: 12 shuttlecraft, 3 cargo shuttles, 5 Yellowstone Class runabouts
Shuttlebay 2: 12 shuttlepods, 4 Sphynx class workbees
Fighterbay: 12 Federation Fighters


Heavy Duranium/Tritanium Double Hull plus 18 cm of layered armor.

Like The Galaxy Class ships before it, the Quantum Class starships are capable of seperating and reconnecting it's Saucer from its Stardrive section.

Ablative Armor (Prototype Armor Generation System): Ablative armor hull plating has been in development for a number of years, though various factor related to materials availability, instabilities, phaser and torpedo resistance, and long fabrication lead times have prevented its widespread use on front line starships. The armor worked in two stages; in the event of shield-envelope disruption, phaser or thermal EM is first dissipated over the hull surface, and above an undisclosed threshold causes the molecular matrix to boil off at a controlled rate, carrying away a large fraction of the landed beam energy. In most cases the boil-off created a medium density particle cloud, which may help disperse the incoming beam. The U.S.S. Defiant was the first starship to be equipped with ablative armor. As a result of it's successful field use against Dominion, Klingon, even Federation weapons. As a result Starfleet command ordered all newly constructed ships to be outfitted with the ablative armor. Ablative armor technology remained fairly unchanged until 2377 when the U.S.S. Voyager returned from the Delta Quadrant with a new form of Ablative armor that was acquired from the future.

This new armor is very different from the original. For starters, the new armor is no longer simply layered on the hull of the ship during the final stages of construction. The new armor came from the late 24th century, it is a product Transporter and Replicator technology. The armor is generated by generators located on the ship's hull. The new armor uses photons to establish a shield matrix around the ship and solidifies becoming quite literally a second skin. This second skin is stronger then any alloy that the Federation has ever created, and is extremely resistant to directed energy beams (this includes transporters and tractor beams). The Ablative Armor is capable of absorbing up to 80% of all energy directed at it.

Transverse Bulkheads: After the first Serniam attack the Ark Royal and several other of the ships assigned to Proxima Five had a series of bulk heads above the power conduits. These bulk heads would contain shielded replacement conduits. In the event that a conduit is damaged, the flow of power would be discountinued, then the damaged section would be jettisoned and the replacement would be lowered into place and power can once again be restored to those vital systems.
