- "Tupuna" is pronounced "too-POO-nah".
The Tupuna-class starship combined the saucer section with the stardrive section in one section. Instead of the nacelles being attached via wings or pylons, they were embedded within the port and starboard sides of the saucer. Like the Sovereign-class and Intrepid-class starships, Tupuna-class starships have an oval saucer section.
Typical Tupuna-class starships have 9 decks.
