Due to the overwhelming request for change in CYs by StarFleet captains, StarFleet has put together a new ship and is testing it on the USS Phoenix-B. This new ship is The Capizelo, and attaches to the underside of the saucer section of the Phoenix.
The CY has two decks, the Flight Deck (considered Deck 2) and the Engineering Deck (considered Deck 1). It is primarily used to transport diplomatic persons to and from the ship, and occasionaly captain's shore-leave or vacation. It can be piloted with a crew of one, or for optimum performance of all stations, a crew of three. It has the ability to land on any smooth terrain or to attach to a StarBase or any other ship which has matching harness locks.
One of the major advances put into the Capizelo is the warp nacelle for warp capabilities of up to warp 5. Considerably smaller than most nacelle's, it can retract into the bridge area when the CY is attached to the Phoenix, so as not to disturb the contour of the Phoenix. This nacelle is approximately 30 feet long and 7 feet high (from connection to hull to top of nacelle). Another advance put into the Capizelo is the turbo-lift which, when in port, can connect to the StarBase or ship to provide for speedy transport.
Deck one houses the following: 1 emergency pod, 1 storage area, 2 holodecks, the master bedroom and head, and the engineering area. Deck two houses the following: the shuttle bay containing 1 shuttle and two pods, the galley, the guest lounge, the crew quarters and head for 3, 1 bedroom, 1 storage area, and the bridge.
