Whakahaere-class starships were a compact class of starship in service during the late 23rd and 24th centuries. The USS Hawkes Bay (NCC-5621) and USS William Hamilton (NCC-5707) were ships of this class. This ship class remains somewhat unique with a three nacelle design. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions)
- "Whakahaere" is pronounced "FAH-kah-hi-ehr-eh".
The Whakahaere-class starship was a rather compact starship in the fact that its primary and secondary hulls were closely interconnected. The saucer section, or primary hull, included the bridge, the computer core, recreational facilities, crew quarters, science labs, phasers and torpedo launchers, transporter rooms, and sickbay.
One warp nacelle was locked at a stationary position above the aft saucer section, attached to the engineering section. The other two nacelles, in non-warp position, extend from the secondary hull at a 90-degree angle from the first nacelle. In order to jump to warp, the two bottom nacelles move downwards, forming a 145 degree angle from the first nacelle.
Typical Whakahaere-class starships have 20 decks.
