- Science Division: With hundreds of biological and physical science labs located throughout the primary hull and engineering and mechanical laboratories in the stardrive section, the Astraeus is one of the most capable scientific research vessels in Starfleet, outside of dedicated science vessels. The ship's new bio-neural computer systems allow for extremely rapid computation and problem solving, and her hundreds of scientific crew members and officers are supplemented by some of the most prominent civilian scientists in their fields.
Crew Support Systems
- Medical: Primary sickbay located in the saucer section, with multiple wards, surgical suites, intensive-care units (ICU), biohazard support, morgue and several medical laboratories, equipped with specialized equipment for researching pandemic-scale medical events. Secondary sickbay located in the stardrive section with similar, if slightly smaller facilities.
- Holographic Support: Emergency Medical Holographic Emitters installed in all medical facilities, as well as important crew gathering locations, such as Ten Forward, the Bridge, Engineering, and others.
- Education: Nursery, K-12 classrooms, and others. Some facilities for university and Starfleet training for acting Ensigns are available.
- Recreational: 16 holodecks (25 man capacity), mess hall, crew lounge, gymnasium and additional reconfigurable recreational halls.
- Warp Engines: One 1,500+ Cochrane warp core feeding two LF-41 Mod 3 advanced linear warp drive units
- Quantum Slipstream Drive: Yes; limited use for emergencies and long range travel only.
- Impulse Engines: Three FIG 5 Subatomic Unified Energy Impulse Units, two located on the saucer section, one on the stardrive section.
- Cruising: Warp 8
- Maximum Sustainable Cruise: Warp 10 (Warp 9.8 in TNG scale)
- Maximum / Emergency: Warp 13 for 12 hours (Warp 9.97 for 12 hours in TNG scale)
- Computer System: LCARS, Class XIX Bioneural processing units, three independent computer cores
