Olympic Class Starship - USS Hipocrates - NCC 61507

Description
The Olympic Class was designed and entered service in the late 24th Century. Built by Starfleet primarily as a hospital ship, the class featured an unusual spherical fore-section which allowed a more even distrubution of medical facilities and patient care than was possible with more traditional saucer configurations. The engineering section housed most of the crew and resident medical staff. The Olympic Class engines were capable of speeds approaching the fastest ships in the fleet, but with moderate shielding and limited armaments, a huge volume was available for various humanitarian emergencies. These design considerations came out of the aftermath of the battles of Wolf 359 and the Dominion War, in which Starfleet and allied forces suffered enormous casualties, with limited rapid response humanitarian capacity. The USS Hipocrates was a later variant of the class, named after the Ancient Earth physician who established professional medicine around 400 B.C. #all_good_things #ancient #ancient_greece #crusher #daedalus #daedalus_class #detailed #dr_crusher #enterprise #excelsior #greece #hipocrates #hope_class #hospital #hospital_ship #hyppocrates #ncc #ncc_61507 #olympic #olympic_class #pasteur #science_fiction #scifi #ship #space #space_ship #spaceship #sphere #spherical #star #star_ship #star_trek #starship #startrek #tng #trek #tw #uss_hipocrates #uss_hippocrates #voyager #warp #warp_drive #warp_nacelles #window #windows
