for Reaction Control System, also referred to as maneuvering thrusters. The RCS
is a low-power propulsion system for low-velocity attitude and translational control.
Depending on the starship type, the system consists of a number of thrusters mostly
located at the edge of the saucer hull. Although the Star Trek RCS is based on
a fusion reaction, its principle has not changed since the early days of space
travel in the 1960's, and similar thrusters were attached e.g. to the hull of
the Apollo spaceship. |
technology incorporating duotronic drivers, isolinear optical chips, bio-neural
gel packs and advances in Cytherian computer technology. This artificial intelligence
technology responds to external stimulae on an instinctive level. One of the advantages
of RQs is autorepair of damaged systems. However, even though these computers
are equipped with artificial intelligence, the computers cannot make their own
decisions; they're still restricted to their programs. Defiant-class starships
are equipped with reflex-Quintronic computers|

||Device which is
capable of creating matter from raw matter. The working principle of this device
is related to the transporter. The replicator diassembles and assembles matter
in a similar way, the main difference is that its resolution is limited to the
molecular level. The replicator works on a molecular base, which is sufficient
to create food or articles for daily use. It is necessary to store suited raw
matter, i.e. matter with the molecular composition required. in late 23rd century
and 24th century ships waste is employed for this purpose. Up to 97% of waste
on a starship can be recycled to consumables. The replicator has been around since
the mid 22nd century, but wasn't installed on Star Ships until the latter part
of the 23rd century due to the room needed to store the amount of raw matterial
needed for the day to day use of hundreds of crewmen. Much of this problem was
solved by harking back to the old Reconstitution technology of the mid 22nd century
warp five starships. It suprized many in Starfleet that this old tecnological
concept was ignored for so long. But as an engineer once said. 'Its hard to remember
that you can light a fire with two stones when you've always used a laser match.'

roleplaying, participants adopt and act out the role of characters, or parts,
that may have personalities, motivations, and backgrounds different from their
own. Roleplaying is like being in an improvisational drama or free-form theatre,
in which the participants are the actors who are playing parts, and the audience.
Like playing Cops and Robbers when you were a kid. |
People use the phrase "role-playing"
in at least three distinct ways:
A.the playing of roles generally such as in
a theatre, or educational setting.
B. A wide range of games including computer
role-playing games, play-by-mail games and Live Action Role play [LARP].
to refer specifically to role-playing games.

of small size, twice as large as a shuttlecraft, mainly used for mid-range personnel
transport. Runabouts are equipped with warp and impulse drive, shields, phasers
and optional photon torpedoes, while Repulse and Blackhawks have improved shielding
and weapons. They are used for many purposes where a shuttle does not have the
range needed, while a starship is either not available or is too large.|
