Scientific pursuits remain at the forefront of Starfleet's agenda, and a range of science ships are specially designed and built for these missions. Many are modular, allowing different laboratory modules to be swapped in and out to reconfigure the ship for a specific mission with relatively little effort. Surveyors such as the Nova class are designed for short-range astronomical surveys and planetary research. The Oberth class has served as a mobile research laboratory for over a century. Newer deep space science vessels such as the Oracle class are capable of undertaking long-term missions without the need for as frequent refueling or resupplying as previous generations of science ships.
