The Prometheus Attack Frigate is the ultimate iteration of ship separation technologies. In the past many Starfleet vessels
had been constructed that could detach their saucer sections from the stardrive sections in time of dire need (such as a warp
containment breach), but never was this planned to be a standard combat tactic -- especially as saucer sections were incapable
of going to warp! The Prometheus, however, was built from the ground up so that each section could operate independently of
The design's power was demonstrated when the U.S.S. Prometheus was captured by operatives of the Romulan
Tal Shiar during its shakedown cruise. The ship was able to take on the best firepower offered up by newer Federation starships
while being able to easily dispatch a Romulan D'deridex Warbird.
