NX-class Starship

– GO BACK to ‘Ships Named Enterprise’ 

 

 

After years of testing the warp-five engine by the NX-Program, Earth-Starfleet developed the NX-class Starship.

 

The NX-class was the first class of starship built with the warp-five engine.   This warp-five engine that took over thirty years to develop at the Warp-Five Complex (“Broken Bow, ENT”).

 

The NX-class starships enabled Humanity to explore beyond its neighboring star systems.

 

It would appear that the NX-class starships, set the standard for the over-all design of a starship that would become the norm for Federation starships.  For example; the Access Tubes (later to be known as Jefferies Tubes ) and the dual-nacelle design first employed by Cochrane’s Phoenix; thus putting an end to the eXperimental, ring-shaped nacelles of Enterprise (XCV-330).

 

Serving in the United Earth-Starfleet , the first ship of the NX-class was Enterprise (NX-01), commissioned in 2151, under the command of Captain Jonathan Archer (“Broken Bow, ENT”).

 

The second ship, Columbia (NX-02), was commissioned in 2154, under the command of Captain Erika Hernandez (“Affliction, ENT”).

 

If the before mentioned NX-Program continued to follow the order of the United States’ space shuttle program, the NX-03 and NX-04 would be named Challenger and Discovery respectively.
