GENERAL NOTES

1. THESE PLANS ARE FOR FAMILIARIZATION PURPOSES FOR ALL STARFLEET PERSONNEL ASSIGNED TO STARSHIP SERVICE.

2. THIS BATTLECRUISER IS BELIEVED TO BE THE PRIMARY CLASS SHIP IN THE GORN FLEET. IT APPEARS TO BE BUILT FOR SPEED AND COMBAT TO DEFEND GORN TERRITORY.

3. THE GORN RACE, ALTHOUGH AGRESSIVE BY NATURE, APPEAR TO BE XENOPHOBIC IN ATTITUDE. THIS MAY EXPLAIN WHY THEY STAY IN THEIR OWN SMALL SECTOR OF SPACE, AS WELL AS WHY IT WASN'T UNTIL STARDATE 3045.6 THAT THEIR EXISTENCE WAS MADE KNOWN TO THE FEDERATION.

4. THE 3-ZB BATTLECRUISER'S MAIN OFFENSIVE WEAPONRY IS ITS TWO ENERGY CANNONS. THESE CANNONS APPEAR TO BE A VARIATION OF THE ROMULAN PLASMA ENERGY WEAPON. INSTEAD OF A LARGE ENERGY PLASMA BOLT, IT PRODUCES A SMALL CONTINUOUS OR PULSED BEAM/BOLT. THIS APPARENTLY REDUCES THE ENERGY DRAIN ON THE SHIP, AND INCREASES THE RANGE AND ACCURACY. IT IS ASSUMED THAT THIS WEAPON IS WHAT WAS USED TO DEVISTATE THE UFP STARBASE ON CESTUS III.

5. THE 3-ZB ALSO CARRIES A CONTINGENT OF NUCLEAR MISSLES AND PHASERS FOR SECONDARY OFFENSIVE USE. AS WELL AS FOR SHIP'S DEFENSE.

6. IMPULSE ENGINES ARE KEPT COVERED UNTIL ACTIVATED.

7. ALL THREE MISSLE LAUNCHERS ARE LOADED VIA THEIR LAUNCH TUBES.

8. THE GORN TRANSPORTER IS DESIGNED ALONG THE LINES OF THE STARFLEET CARGO TRANSPORTER, APPARENTLY FOR MAXIMUM TRANSPORTATION SPACE FOR CREW OR CARGO.

9. BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE FACILITIES ARE MINIMAL, AND ARE PART OF SICKBAY.

10. PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY LABS ARE DESIGNED TOWARDS MILITARY ANALYSIS, RATHER THAN SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH.

11. THE UPPER AND LOWER SENSOR PLATFORMS ARE USED FOR COMBAT, AND INTELLIGENCE GATHERING.

12. THIS CLASS SHIP CARRIES FULL GEAR FOR SMALL GROUND ASSAULTS BY EITHER CREW OR TROOPS CARRIED IN CONVERTED CARGO HOLDS.

13. THE 3-ZB CAN BE MAINTAINED BY A MINIMUM CREW OF 15.

14. DETAILS OF THE GORN SHUTTLE CRAFT ARE UNAVAILABLE.

15. DETAILS ON THE GORN WARP DRIVE ARE STILL CLASSIFIED. ORDER NO. SFI-311-QR87.
