Starship- USS Impala, Lancer Class Light Frigate
NCC – 2540
Rigged primarily for escort and patrol, the USS Impala heads for her newly assigned home port, Starstation India.
Though only designated a light frigate, she packs an impressive punch compared to most vessels that share her classification.
Two torpedo launchers are set in niche along the bow edge of her primary hull.
Heavy phaser canons, which are dorsal extension mounted to the warp nacelle pylons, also provide a primarily forward sweeping targeting arc.
Though their overall firing arc is diminished, these canons gain a tremendous upsurge in yield, having plasma siphoned directly off the main engine’s intermix in order to provide phaser energy.
Atypical asymmetry: A single shuttlebay dominates the starboard stern.
She has standard frigate class impulse engines, but they’re still beasties.
Though a preponderance of her heavy weaponry aims forward, she maintains well balanced defensive coverage along her flanks and remaining circumference.
Having entered the India Sector more than a day ago, the Impala arrives at the outer edge of Starstation India’s primary system.
