In use: 2358 to present
The type was put back in production as the Advantage class

Manta 2358
The Manta is the direct descendant of the Unity class FF. These vessels are built from the keel up as warships. All incorporate the latest advances in technology and weaponry. At the time of their design and construction the Mantas were equipped with photon torpedoes, a weapon admittedly losing its punch to the shielding of the day. The octclops turret was hoped to offset this with a higher rate of fire.

When the Quantum torpedo became available the Mantas were equipped with them. What had been a dangerous ship to tangle with became a monster. It was seriously questioned whether it was within the Federation philosophy to field such a vessel. It was also questioned whether it was within the Federation philosophy to be assimilated by the Borg. The Mantas kept the quantum torpedoes.

The other factor noted about the Manta is the relatively short range compared to other vessels. A fourteen month standard on station time is the maximum recommended. Mantas have superior tactical maneuverability but inferior warp maneuverability. The over-under arrangement of nacelles favors quick impulse turns and tight maneuvers but makes them slower to turn in warp.

Enterprise D Scale -- As BuiltEdit

  • Science capacity 200 -- Mantas simply do not have thew crew or the lab space.
  • Crew Comfort 1000 -- Yes the ship is small, but so is the crew. There is plenty of space.
  • Duration 400 -- The manta has a 14 month on station duration. She is not a long distance cruiser.
  • Medical facilities 600 -- Fully modern and adequate for her size, not an S&R cutter.
  • Tactical maneuvering 1600 -- Centerline mounted nacelles mean this ship can flip around fast, she has the same impulse drive as the galaxy class with a much lower mass.
  • Strategic Speed 3000 -- Three light year a day cruising speed.
  • Defense 1000 -- She can hold her own and take what she dishes out.
  • Offense 1500 -- Class 10 weapons. Lighter on the phasers but a significantly heavier photon torpedo battery.
  • Versatility 200 -- This is the can whup-ass comes in, there isn't room for much else.
  • Internal Security 1500 -- RI computer monitoring.

Enterprise D Scale -- DiSodiumEdit

  • Science capacity 400 -- Mantas simply do not have thew crew or the lab space, better sensors help.
  • Crew Comfort 1000 -- Yes the ship is small, but so is the crew. There is plenty of space.
  • Duration 400 -- The manta has a 14 month on station duration. She is not a long distance cruiser.
  • Medical facilities 600 -- Fully modern and adequate for her size, not an S&R cutter.
  • Tactical maneuvering 1600 -- Centerline mounted nacelles mean this ship can flip around fast, she has the same impulse drive as the galaxy class with a much lower mass.
  • Strategic Speed 18000 -- cruise. Wf Ds7 Max wf Ds9 cruse speed is 18 light years a day.
  • Defense 2000 -- Shielding improvements along with the fleet..
  • Offense 2500 -- Class 12 weapons. Lighter on the phasers but a significantly heavier quantum torpedo battery plus ion cannon.
  • Versatility 200 -- This is the can whup-ass comes in, there isn't room for much else.
  • Internal Security 2000 -- RI computer monitoring.

Refits and other notesEdit

2365Edit

A standard in service refit for all vessels built in the first run 2350

2367Edit

A standard in service refit for all vessels built in the second and third run 2352


2375Edit

The class of '75 were delivered with the Builder stations. For their own reason the Builders have included complete copies of the Builder squadron, two Mantas and one Planet class ship, with every Starbase supplied. Once the disodium breakthrough was made those ships were disodium refits proving that it quirks something in the Builder psychs to do so. So far ten Mantas have been added to the fleet this way. A bonus as with the Romulan peace further Mantas were not planned. While a useful ship, even the Ane feel it is not the ship Starfleet should be about. Effort is concentrated on the Dolphin Class which packs the same punch, but in a heavy cruiser hull.


2376Edit

Manta 2395
All units in service are upgraded to disodium warp cores and nacelles.

Class of 75Edit

For their own reasons the Builders have included a copy of the "Builder Squadron" with every station they have supplied the Federation. This included an unmarked copy of the Manta class ships ADF Searcher and ADF Questing. All vessels were turned over to the ADF as they are all built for Ane command and control. They are a considerable bonus as no more Mantas where planned.
