This class of starship are constructed by The GalTech Industries Corporation exclusively for Starfleet and are designed to combine both long range exploration with a substantial military capability. Due to the exclusivity deal in place with Starfleet and the huge production cost these vessels are not available to any organisation other than Starfleet nor are they available as player ships.

Standard Equipment

Forward military laser. Rear military laser. ECM. Shield Booster. Fuel Injection. Shield Enhancer. Energy Unit. 6 Escape Pods Fuel Scoops

Ship Variants

The ship is available as an npc ship only. These vessel’s primary role is exploration and therefore they are typically encountered investigating systems. Their remit does not include the enforcement of local or galactic law and hence they will not attack other vessels except in self defense

Minimum Requirements

This OXP requires the BigShips OXP produced by Thargoid and Eric Walch to also be installed (A copy is included in the OXP download for convenience). The OXP has been developed for Oolite V1.76 however it should also be upward compatible with future releases.


Unzip the file, and then move the folder "Constitution Class Heavy Cruiser - V1.00.oxp" to the AddOns directory of your Oolite installation. Then start the game up and the ship should be added.

  • V1.00 - With thanks to Thargoid and Eric Walch for the use of their BigShips oxp, cim and Smivs for advice regarding specifying the correct type of missile used by the ship, Thargoid and Svengali for advice on how to rescale my original model, Paramount Pictures for releasing the movies and Gene Roddenberry for the original concept.
