UEF Armstrong


 UEF Armstrong ­and E'lah design ships 


The UEF Armstrong is the UEF's flagship. It is the first ship to be launched by the UEF and the only ship with a functional self-repair hull. 


                                                                                     UEF Liwei and UEF Gagarin

Type of technology: E'lah/Earth design ships (Hybrid)
Other ships in this category include the UEF Shepard (USA), UEF Liwei (China) and UEF Gagarin (Russia)

Size: 200 meters in diameter (660 ft)

 Ship Layout 

The top deck is deck 1. It houses a weapon’s bay and the shuttle bay. On the Armstrong, there is also a laboratory on this deck and a few living quarters.

Below, on deck 2, the central area houses the auxiliary stations and the main computer. The rest are living quarters

On deck 3 a section is reserved for the gym, the galley, and the lounge and observation bay. The rest are living quarters.

Deck 4 and 5 are mostly taken up by the main hangar bays, as well as the warp drive. The bays’ height occupies the space of two decks. The central section of the ship also houses the weapons control, the bridge, ready rooms, conference rooms and command crew’s quarters. 

Deck 6 is the main engineering deck. 

Deck 7 houses the science stations and the security wing and sickbay.

Deck 8 houses the ship’s waste recycling plant. There is also a weapons’ bay.

 Ship Design 

The saucer ships are made up of five distinctive parts. The central section, the two-part top section and the bottom two-part section.

The top and bottom saucers each have an outer ring that spins when the ship is in flight mode. In take-off mode, the rings spin in opposite directions to each other. This generates an anti-grav field, making the ship rise. Once the ship is space bound, the rings spin in the same direction. Upon reaching three-quarter light speed, the rings resume their counterclockwise motion, creating an energy bubble around the ship. Once inside this bubble, the ship can achieve light speed. Matter cannot travel at such speeds, but the energy bubble can. The ship’s speed is zero in relation to its bubble and so, when the energy bubble attains light speed, the ship is carried along with it.

The hull and bulkheads of the ship are composed of semi-organic technology. It combines nanotechnology with organic nanites. To build such ships, each part must first be fashioned and, when ready, immersed into a nano/nanites bath. The nano/nanites will grow on the object and consume it, but they will take its place and retain its initial properties. The object will now be composed solely of nano/nanites. If the object is damaged, the nano/nanites rebuild it from memory. 

The Armstrong is the only ship in Earth’s fleet with a functional nano/nanites hull. All other ships’ nano/nanites died due to loss of energy. On these ships, their hull's self repair is non-functional.


Note: The Armstrong's layout may differ from that of other UEF ships of the same design because, unlike these, the Armstrong was not reconditioned from damaged vessels. Only its computer system has been reprogrammed to be manned by Humans. The other UEF vessels in this category were rebuilt primarily with a Human crew in mind.
