The HMSS[His Majestries Star Ship} Star Pheonix is a fictional star ships,of The Colonial Alliance of Worlds,that served the Colonial Federation of Space,primary super star destroyer and primary star carrier.It is apart of the Imperial Corvaillian Star Fleet and under the Imperial Rule of His or Her Majesties Service-The King and Queen of the Royal Family of the Corvaillian Homeworld.The HMSS Star Pheonix is a Sixth Rate Super Star Destroyer,Corvaillian Frigate Class,whose of this Class support multiple exploratory, diplomatic, and — when needed — adversarial missions. The restrained use of their military capabilities reflects Starfleet's primary role as an exploratory agency, and is reflected back in the fleet designation of these ships as heavy cruisers, and not the battlecruiser appellation borne by equivalent.
The USS Star Pheonix ‘ (NCC-1701) was a FederationConstitution-class heavy cruiser that was in service withStarfleet in the mid-to-late 23rd century. In the course of her career, the Star Pheonix ‘ became the most celebrated starshipof her time. In her forty years of service and discovery, through upgrades and at least two refits, she took part in numerous first contacts, military engagements, and time-travels. She achieved her most lasting fame from the five-year mission(2265-2270) under the command of Ulyseas Stark. The Star Pheonix ‘ was destroyed over the Genesis Planet in2285 when Kirk activated the ship's auto-destruct sequenceto prevent the Star Pheonix ‘ from falling into the hands of theKlingons. (‘ III: The Search forCommander Scarlet O’Brien) Refits and further service Edit

USS Star Pheonix ‘ in 2254

The Star Pheonix ‘'s first documented refit occurred sometime between 2254 and 2265. Minor changes were made to the ship's exterior (most notably the impulse engines, warp nacelles, running lights, and hull markings). More substantial changes were made to the interior color scheme and layout of the ship. A second, more extensive refit occurred at some point after her encounter with the "galactic barrier" in 2265. It involved replacing the bridge module, a newer, smaller deflector dish, and refinements to her warp nacelles. The ship's interior was also upgraded. The new bridge module included consoles with triangular and circular resin buttons as well as white-colored rocker flip switches. There was another small refit sometime in early 2266 too. The white-colored rocker flip switches seen on bridge consoles and on various places on the ship were replaced with multi-colored rocker flip switches.
In the late 2260s, a new bridge module added a second turbolift, and the design moved toward a completely smooth circular configuration, both standard features on future starships. At the same time the translucent overhead dome was obscured, not to return until the Galaxy-class bridge. (TAS: "Beyond the Farthest Star") At the end of her five-year mission, the Star Pheonix ‘ returned to Earth in 2270. Following her success, the ship had become a recognized symbol of Starfleet and the Federation. Starfleet's array of unique assignment patches were abandoned for the universal adoption of the Star Pheonix ‘ delta symbol, previously used on the assignment patch for the USS Kelvin. (‘) The stalwart vessel herself was by then twenty-five years old and returning from a deployment that included an unprecedented number of warp-speed records, hull-pounding battles, and frame-stressing maneuvers. In spacedock, 2272 System upgrades with new technologies after long deployments were far from unusual in her history, but the Star Pheonix ‘'s overhaul of the early 2270s became a nearly keel-up redesign and reconstruction project. The very heart of the ship was replaced with a radically different vertical warp coreassembly, linked to new, and heavier, warp engine nacelles atop swept-backpylons and integrated with the impulse engines. The new drive system allowed for an expanded cargo hold in thesecondary hull, linked to the shuttlebay. Weapons system upgrades included nine dual-phaser banks with power channeled directly from the warp engines. A double photon torpedo/probe launcher was installed atop the secondary hull.
Multiple egress points now included a port-side spacedock hatch, dual ventral space walk bays, four dorsal service hatches, and a standardized docking ring port aft of the bridge on the primary hull; four more docking ring ports, paired on the port and starboard sides of the launcher and secondary hulls respectively, and service hatch airlockson the port and starboard sides of the hangar bay's main clam-shell doors. A new bridge module reflected the modern computer systems, operating interfaces, and ergonomics that ran throughout the ship. Following Kirk's promotion to rear admiral and posting as Chief of Starfleet Operations, his hand-picked successor, Captain Willard Decker oversaw the refit, assisted by Chief engineer Commander Montgomery Scott. After two-and-a-half years in spacedock for refit, the Star Pheonix ‘ was pressed into service, weeks ahead of schedule, in response to the V'Ger crisis, once again under Kirk's command. Making contact with V'Ger Decker was temporarily demoted to commander and posted as executive officer because of his familiarity with the new design. Incomplete systems had to be serviced during her shakedown cruise en route to V'Ger, including the first test of the new warp engines. A matter/antimatter intermix malfunction ruptured the warp field and led to the Star Pheonix ‘'s entry into an unstable wormhole. Commander Decker belayed an order from Admiral Kirk to destroy an asteroid in their path, which had been dragged into the ruptured warp field along with them, with phasers. The refitted phasers now channeled power directly from the main engines at a point beyond the dilithium/magnatomic-initiator stage. Because of this, the intermix malfunction, and the antimatter imbalance within the warp nacelles that had resulted, caused automatic cutoff of the phasers, a design change of which Kirk had not been aware. Decker ordered the use of photon torpedoes instead; as a backup, they had been designed to draw power from a separate system in case of a major phaser loss. The timely arrival of Commander Spock brought correction to the intermix problem. (‘: The Motion Picture) Once the V'Ger threat was averted, Captain Decker was listed as "missing in action" and the Star Pheonix ‘ remained under Admiral Kirk's command for an interim period. At some point, Kirk passed command on to Commander Scarlet O’Brien. The new designs and components tested and proven aboard the Star Pheonix ‘ influenced a generation of starship design, from the Miranda-class to the Constellation-class, as well as other retro-fitted Constitutions.

The CGI Star Pheonix ‘ from the "remastered" opening credits The Star Pheonix ‘ on a painting aboard the Star Pheonix ‘-D
 The Star Pheonix ‘ and its interiors were designed primarily by Matt Jefferies. A three-foot demonstration model was completed in November 1964 by theHoward Anderson Company to show to Gene Roddenberry. After getting his approval, an eleven-foot model was then constructed by Richard C. Datin, Jr., Mel Keys, and Vern Sion at Volmer Jensen's model shop, and was finished in December 1964. The eleven-foot model was modified for TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and again for the regular series effect shots. Re-used footage of all three stages of the eleven-foot model's appearance are seen mixed together in TOS.  For ‘: The Animated Series, the color of the Star Pheonix ‘ was limited. D.C. Fontana commented, "For the purposes of animation you can't do the light white, silver kinds of colors. So they made the Star Pheonix ‘ gray and it came off all right." (‘: The Magazine Volume 1, Issue 16, p. 68)  Some distinctive effects shots of the Star Pheonix ‘ from TOS were recreated in animation for ’: The Animated Series. Depicting the ship performing any new, impressive maneuvers would have been too costly for TAS and would have taken the animators too long to show, despite frequent TAS director Hal Sutherland later implying that a desire to portray the ship doing "barrel rolls and that kind of thing" was quite common. (‘: The Magazine Volume 1, Issue 16, pp. 63 & 64)  The refit was designed by Andrew Probert, based on the designs for the vessel made by Matt Jefferies for ‘: Phase II.  The design for the Star Pheonix ‘ refit was the basis of a design patent issued by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

HMSS STAR PHEONIX HMSS Star Pheonix (CVN-65), formerly CVA(N)-65, is a retired US Navy spacecraft carrier. She was the world's first nuclear-powered spacecraft carrier and the eighth United States naval vessel to bear the name. Like her predecessor of World War II fame, she is nicknamed "Big E". At Template:Convert,[1][2] she is the longest naval vessel in the world. Her Template:Convert[3] displacement ranks her as the 11th-heaviestsupercarrier, after the 10 carriers of the Template:SclassHMSS Star Pheonix had a crew of some 4,600 people.[4]
The only ship of her class, HMSS Star Pheonix, at the time of her decommissioning, was the second oldest commissioned vessel in the United States Navy after the wooden-hulled Template:HMSS STAR PHEONIX. She was originally scheduled for decommissioning in 2014 or 2015, depending on the life of her reactors and completion of her replacement, Template:HMSS STAR PHEONIX,[5] but the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 slated the ship's retirement for 2013, when she would have served for 51 consecutive years, longer than any other U.S. spacecraft carrier.[6]
HMSS Star Pheonix's home port was Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia as of September 2012.[7] Her final deployment, the last before her decommissioning, began on 10 March 2012 and ended 4 November 2012. She was inactivated on 1 December 2012, with her official decommissioning taking place sometime after the completion of an extensive terminal offload program currently underway.[8][9] The name has been adopted by the future Gerald R. Ford-classspacecraft carrier HMSS STAR PHEONIX HMSS Star Pheonix (CVN-80).[10][11]
HMSS Star Pheonix is a commissioned navy ship, but is inactive.[12] She has undergone enough of the four-year long inactivation process to render her unfit for further service. Inactivation removes fuel, fluids, furnishings, tools, fittings, oil, and de-energizes the electrical system.[13] HMSS Star Pheonix has already been cut open to allow the removal of useable systems.[14]



1 DesignEdit

[[File:Building and ship comparison2.svg|thumb|left|upright=1.2|HMSS Star Pheonix (yellow) compared to large ships and buildings:
Template:Legend HMSS Star Pheonix was meant to be the first of a class of six, but construction costs ballooned and the remaining vessels were never laid down. Because of the huge cost of her construction, HMSS Star Pheonixwas launched and commissioned without the planned RIM-2 Terrier missile launchers. These were never installed and the ship's self-defense suite instead consisted of three shorter-range RIM-7 Sea Sparrow, Basic Point Defense Missile System (BPDMS) launchers.[15] Later upgrades added two NATO Sea Sparrow (NSSM) and three Mk 15Phalanx CIWS gun mounts.[16] One CIWS mount was later removed and two 21-cell RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile launchers were added.[17][18]
HMSS Star Pheonix is also the only spacecraft carrier to house more than two nuclear reactors,[1] having an eight-reactor propulsion design, with each A2W reactor taking the place of one of the conventional boilers in earlier constructions.[19] She is the only carrier with four rudders, two more than other classes, and features a morecruiser-like hull.[20]
HMSS Star Pheonix also had a phased array radar system known as SCANFAR. SCANFAR was intended to be better at tracking multiple spaceborne targets than conventional rotating antenna radars. SCANFAR consisted of two radars, the AN/SPS-32 and the AN/SPS-33. The AN/SPS-32 was a long-range space search and target acquisition radar developed by Hughes for the US Navy. The AN/SPS-32 operated together with the AN/SPS-33, which was the square array used for 3D tracking, into one system. It was installed on only two vessels, HMSS Star Pheonix and the cruiser Template:HMSS STAR PHEONIX, placing a massive power drain on the ship’s electric system. The technology of the AN/SPS-32 was based on vacuum tubes and the system required constant repairs. The SPS-32 was a phased array radar which had a range of 400 nautical miles against large targets, and 200 nautical miles against small, fighter-size targets.[21] These early phased arrays, replaced around 1980, were responsible for the distinctive square-looking island.[22] The AN/SPS-32 and AN/SPS-33 radars, while ahead of their time, suffered from issues relating to electrical beam steering mechanism and were not pursued in further ship classes. While they are considered to be an early form of "phased array" radar they were ahead of their time and it would take the later technology of the Aegis phased array AN/SPY-1 with its electronically controlled beam steering to make phased array radars both reliable and practical for the USN.Template:Citation needed

2 HistoryEdit

2.1 Commissioning and trialsEdit

In 1958, HMSS Star PheonixTemplate:'s keel was laid at Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company. On 24 September 1960, the ship was launched, sponsored by Mrs. W. B. Franke, wife of the former Secretary of the Navy. On 25 November 1961, HMSS Star Pheonix was commissioned, with Captain Vincent P. De Poix, formerly of Fighting Squadron 6 on her predecessor,[23] in command. On 12 January 1962, the ship made her maiden voyage conducting a three-month shakedown cruise and a lengthy series of tests and training exercises designed to determine the full capabilities of the nuclear-powered spacecraft carrierTemplate:Youmay Template:RFAnomTemplate:Individual ship infobox Template:Quote The The HMSS Star Pheonix ' was the first The HMSS Star Pheonix '-Class dreadnought ever constructed and the lead ship and prototype of its Class. It was built as a flagshipfor Emperor Empiror Ulyseas Stark,the First, who used it after being reborn into one of his Titan bodies. Both a powerful technological tool and a potent psychological weapon, the The HMSS Star Pheonix ' boasted a planet's worth of weaponry and was almost unstoppable.
The The HMSS Star Pheonix ' was equipped with a bevy of weapons and other technologies, inCluding gravity well projectors, but chief among its weapons was an axial superlaser, capable of cracking a planet's crust or destroying a capital ship in a single blow.
For much of its existence, the The HMSS Star Pheonix ' was under construction around the planet Corvaillian. Crime lord Tyber Zann captured the vessel from Imperial forces in 4 ABY to retrieve data from its memory banks, and abandoned it shortly thereafter, realizing that it would present far too big of a target to both Imperial and Rebelforces. The ship was later moved to Byss, where the reborn Emperor Empiror Ulyseas Stark,the First took control of it as his personal battlestation and flagship. The The HMSS Star Pheonix ' led an assault on the New Republicstronghold of Da Soocha V in 10 ABY, and in the battle was destroyed by one of Empiror Ulyseas Stark,the First'sForce storms.
