Captain: Jean-Luc Picard

The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) was one of the first Galaxy-class starships to be produced by the United Federation of Planets. During its service life, it was widely regarded as the most powerful ship in the fleet and often described as the "Federation flagship". For many years, many versus debates revolved around the outcome of a space battle between a Galaxy-class starship and an Imperial Star Destroyer, with the capabilities of the Enterprise-D serving as benchmarks for the abilities of Galaxy-class starships in general.

Technical Data

  • According to its chief engineer, the Enterprise-D carried the most powerful matter-antimatter reactor in Starfleet, that "normally kicks plasma up into the terawatt range".[1] This occurred after he made some unplanned modifications to the warp core to increase its power output, modifications that were intended for implementation on the next class of starship.[2] Data did once claim that the ship was generating "twelve point seven five billion gigawatts",[3] but this claim for the ship's power generation is absurd for a variety of reasons.
  • According to the tactical officer of the Enterprise-D, the ship is "equipped with ten phaser banks, 250 photon torpedoes, and a high capacity shield grid."[4]
  • The top safe speed of the Enterprise in 2264 was warp 9.3, but it could conceivably achieve a speed of warp 9.8 "at great risk".[5] The ship once spent six days at warp 9.6 pursuing a Borg Cube after Captain Picard was kidnapped and turned into Locutus.[6] It needed a major engine overhaul after the crisis was over.[7]
