Quantum Slipstream Engines
Posted on Wed Sep 9th, 2020 @ 7:05pm by Lieutenant JG Kevin Lance
After research and consideration, I have decided that the USS Independence is not equipped with quantum slipstream engines. The technology was first encounter by the USS Voyager in 2374 and although they were about to test the technology in 2375, it nearly destroyed the Voyager and use of the device was put on hold. The Federation was not introduced to the technology until after the Voyager’s return to the Alpha Quadrant in 2378.
Given the experimental nature of the technology at the end of the Voyager series, I believe that it is unreasonable that the technology would have been perfected, tested, fielded on the next generation of starships, and retrofitted to older designs in the space of eight years.
I will work on posting the specifications for the Indy.
