There have been three Ane ships named "Nia" an Ansisi word for "Our togetherness in purpose". All have served as Ane Defense Force ships under the command of Starfleet. The prefix "USS" is used when they are under Starfleet command.

ADF (USS) Nia CA-01Edit

Nia
Nia Class heavy cruiser The first Ane controlled starship. First ship of the Nia class. She did not serve long enough to gain a reputation.
  • Built: 2361
  • Destroyed: 2366 in a clash with aggressing Klingon D-10 battle cruisers. The Klingons denied the whole incident. One of the many incident leading to the eventual Organian Treaty

The Nia class is a basic "Constitution" class heavy cruiser modified for Ane command and control. The exterior is unmodified as are the weapons and performance. All changes are to the deck layout and control systems. Bios were advanced even in 2260. The computer system was Dualtronic.

Enterprise D scale

  • Science capacity: 200 -- Less lab or crew for science, sensors less advanced.
  • Crew Comfort 200 -- Half the crew, an eighth the volume.
  • Duration - 1000 -- smaller in every way but equipped for that size.
  • Medical facilities 600 -- Neither the space or the staff.
  • Tactical maneuvering 1500 -- Lighter and quicker.
  • Strategic Speed 500 -- Cruise WF 6, Flank WF 8, old scale, cruise 1 light year a day.
  • Defense 500 -- Good for her day.
  • Offense 450 -- Class 6 phasers again good for the day.
  • Versatility -- 600 She did the cruiser mission be did not have the space or crew.
  • Internal Security -- 800 Decent.

ADF (USS) Nia CA-16Edit

Unity 2283
Unity class heavy cruiser. the Unity class Nia served with distinction for 85 years and survived to be decommissioned.
  • Built:2275
  • Scrapped: 2260 -- The Nia was considered unfit for further upgrades and scrapped out

This ship was the philosophical equivalent of the "Enterprise" class vessel. It has a slightly lighter tonnage, a slightly heaver power plant than the Enterprise class, and the first inclusion of the torpedo turret (pentaclops). Due to these factors it saw more use as a border patrol frigate than as a general exploration ship. In further construction and refits the preference for this use was continued to the point where the last Unity class ships in service were classed as frigates. Any trace of their former role as multi use ships had vanished. The design has proved amenable to repeated refits. The ships currently in service with planetary defense are every bit as fit as the day they were launched.

This ship, and those types that follow were the first designed for Ane by Ane. They incorporated the HE warp drives of the first generation and the newly designed Crystalmind computers.

Enterprise D scale As of decommissioning

  • Science capacity: 200 -- Less lab or crew for science, sensors less advanced.
  • Crew Comfort 300 -- small crew, an eighth the volume.
  • Duration - 1000 -- smaller in every way but equipped for that size.
  • Medical facilities 600 -- Neither the space or the staff.
  • Tactical maneuvering 1600 -- Lighter and quicker.
  • Strategic Speed 1000 -- Cruise WF 8, Flank WF 9, new scale, cruise 3 light years a day.
  • Defense 600 -- Class 8 shields, not as much staying power
  • Offense 800 -- Class 8 phasers and torpedo turrets, heavy for her size.
  • Versatility -- 400 The Frigate role was formost
  • Internal Security -- 1200 RI control and security

ADF (USS) Nia CB-12Edit

Manta 2395
Manta Class Heavy Frigate Currently in service in the Orion sector. She remains a part of the backbone of Federation defense.
  • Built: 2371
  • Refit: 2376 All units in service are upgraded to disodium warp cores and nacelles.

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

  • Science capacity 400 -- Mantas simply do not have the 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.
