8 Type-X Phaser Arrays
In the year 2343 the design for a new multi-mission starship, the Nebula Class starship, was approved. Compared to the Galaxy Class the Nebula has a more compact shape; the engineering hull is mounted directly to the underside of the saucer section, a measure which saves some 200 meters in length.
This enables the vessel to carry any one of a variety of special equipment Mission Pods - current models include a Sensor Pod, an enhanced Tactical Pod], a colony transport pod, an emergency field hospital unit, or a science laboratory pod. Although the basic Nebula design has approximately 80% of the capability of a Galaxy Class vessel in most areas, the addition of the mission pod brings that figure up to 95% or more in that specific area. This flexibility actually allows the Nebula design to accomplish almost almost identical missions despite its smaller size.
