USS Hercules NCC-71864 Specifications
In the year 2373, after the initial success of the Galaxy Class Refit, refit began on an existing Nebula Class ship. The USS Bismarck was dry-docked at Avalon Fleet Yards. The project was to refit the ship to be more survivable in combat. This would include the installation of the Phaser 'cannon' developed for the Galaxy Class refit, stronger shielding, extra maneuverability and speed, an enhanced weapons pod, and enlarged shuttle bay.
