USS SUTHERLAND 
NCC-72015
The Nebula Class of Star Ship was a direct offshoot from the Galaxy Class project started in 2343. Starfleet,   
after viewing the potenital that the Galaxy class project was offering decided to build a further class of ship   
based on the Galaxy Class ship. The specific idea that was liked by Starfleet was that a universal drive section   
to be built for emergency transportation. The Galaxy Class drive section was overly large and although very   
efficient at what it did, it was hard to rebuild. They needed a method of transporting a non warp capable   
saucer section and the brief was decided to build a small drive section using existing Galaxy class components   
that would be able to attach to a standard saucer section.
