The USS Nash

The USS Nash

The Sydney-class was a class of relatively large personnel transport ship utilized by the Federation from the late 23rd century through as late as 2375. (TNG: "Relics"; DS9: "Chrysalis")

Technical data Edit

The Sydney-class, like many of the contemporary classes of that era, possessed several systems still in use during the 24th century, including the transporter system, the subspace radio, sensors and impulse engines.

According to Geordi La Forge, older model ships, like the USS Jenolan could "run circles around" a Galaxy-class starship at impulse speeds. (TNG: "Relics")

Interior design Edit

Ops center Edit

The bridge was the command center of the Sydney-class.

The description of "ops center" was used in the episode's script to describe the bridge and adjacent work area.

Located at the rear half of the bridge was a small command area, with a helm station, and command chair, with an operations console located at the rear of the bridge.

In the port-forward side of the bridge was a two-man transporter stage and adjacent transporter console. The starboard-forward side of the bridge contained the engineering console.

Background information Edit

The name of this class is named after Sydney, Australia, with the USS Jenolan being named for the Australian tourist attraction, Jenolan Caves, located near there; visited by Naren Shankar and episode writer, Ronald D. Moore following a Sydney convention. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion)

The studio model was originally used for an orbital shuttle created for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and was substantially modified with Constitution-class and Miranda-class components, notably the bridge module and nacelles, to enlarge the appearance of the shuttlecraft into that of a larger vessel with several decks.

The Sydney-class model (measuring 6½"x11"x4") was listed in the 40 Years of Star Trek: The Collection auction with an estimated sale price of $4,000 to $6,000; it sold for $22,000 ($26,400 with premium). [1]

The studio model of the Sydney-class was to have become the basis for the Danube-class runabouts on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, before a new design was ordered. ([2]; "Relics" audio commentary, TNG Season 6 Blu-ray)
