Starship Sundays: Dreadnought

Welcome to Starship Sunday, presenting a new spaceframe for the Star Trek Adventures roleplaying game, filling in some gaps until official material can be released.
For December we’re journeying to the alternate Kelvin Timeline created when the U.S.S Kelvin was destroyed by the time-displace Romulan, Nero. This week is the Federation warship, the Dreadnought-class.

Like the Kelvin Constitution-class, the Dreadnought-class was increased in size beyond that of normal ships of the era. The presented stats do not reflect that size, but if you want to be more screen accurate, the Dreadnought-class is roughly a Scale 7 or 8.

Only a single Dreadnought-class was constructed on screen, but with tensions still high with the Klingon Empire, Starfleet might opt to build a second ship or repair the prototype U.S.S. Vengeance. Especially after the Klingons saw a demonstration of transwarp beaming onto their homeworld and an incursion by Starfleet officers; Starfleet might have responded with additional Dreadnoughts. This class might be subtly redesigned for defence, or perhaps even rechristened to the Federation-class (mirroring the Prime Timeline).

  1. Nice work as usual. There is one minor problem: your dates on the Kelvin/TOS ships that you’ve posted is off by 100 years. Those events happen in the 2200s, while the Next Generation is in the 2300s.

    1. I’ve done that before and I’ll undoubtedly do it again.
      It’s partially a side-effect of bouncing between TNG and TOS era. And also trying to remember that “23rd Century”=2200s. My brain has always hated that.
