The NX Wallace, launched late 2380, fulfilled all of the requirements set by Starfleet. It was capable of being constructed in a spacestation-sized hangar bay with Industrial replicators or could be built in a spacedock if needed. The design was compact, and its intent was for short in-system missions. For this reason, the warp drive is not especially powerful, but rather boasts a modest speed capable of Warp 6.8, well above the average civilian freighter. Weapons systems were also standard components, although to maximize the usefulness of the torpedo launcher, it was placed in a retractable turret on the bottom of the craft, capable of swinging 360 degrees. Mounted opposite the torpedo launcher on the turret is a powerful tractor beam, taken directly from Sovereign designs and connected directly to the ship's core power supply. The deflector is ringed by sensors based off of the Nova Class sensor suite. The bridge is arranged like a normal starship with a central chair for the Commanding Officer and stations around it. However, the front of the bridge has a combined window, as a shuttle or runabout would, as well as a viewscreen HUD overlay. A ward room in the aft of the ship performs multiple duties as briefing room, transporter pad, a simple galley, and medical bay. The lower deck contains the computer core, Main Engineering, cargo space, and sensor stations. Rooms on the first and second decks hold small bunks that fold down from the walls to be used as bunks. The ship is not, however, designed for long-term missions and these rooms are intended to be used as cargo and triage spaces rather than quarters. The third subdeck contains access to the landing gear and turret, as well as the emergency lifeboat subsystems. Six escape pods are located on the lower deck of the ship, and four are located on the top deck.
