USS KITTY HAWK Specifications
Since the construction of the first in 2243, many
Constitution-class ships have been lost or destroyed. Given
increasing hostilities with neighboring Klingon and Romulan empires, a
great deal of importance was given to building replacements.
However, there had been a number of technological advancements in the
past 20 years. Starfleet considered the current starship design
out-of-date, and revised their shipbuilding program to include the
improvements in all their new ships. A schedule was drawn up to refit the
Constitutions currently in service to the new technology in orderly
rotation, so they would constantly have top-line ships in the field.
Construction began on new vessels, but it turned out that the cost of
building new ships was vastly less than refitting the current ones. So the
decision was made to retire the current Constitutions, and build
new ones to replace them.
Ironically, the only Constitution-class to return from it's
latest mission intact and undamaged was the Enterprise. This gained
the ship no small amount of fame, and Starfleet realised public support
would fall away from them if Enterprise were to be retired. So, the
decision was made to refit Enterprise. The only shipyard available
to do the refit, however, was finishing up construction of the first new
vessel, the USS Kitty Hawk. Once final construction was completed,
Kitty Hawk was moved to Spacedock (Starbase One), and
Enterprise was brought in to begin refit.
Final adjustments and calibrations on the Kitty Hawk are being
completed at Starbase One.
