Background[edit | edit source]
The Marduk was in preproduction in 2400. Then-Rear Admiral Amnell Kree participated in its design in her capacity as chief of the Advanced Tactics Research Office at Starfleet Headquarters. The Marduk is based on the Prometheus-class chassis, but features a fighter bay instead of Multi-Vector Assault Mode. The hangar is partially accommodated by a bulkier aft hull and wider-spread nacelles.
The Marduk was intended to be the lead ship of a new class of light carrier for surgical strikes, the Marduk-class fast attack carrier. However, budget cuts led to the project's cancellation.
In 2408 Bronok Zell was assigned as the captain, and the Marduk was made the flagship of a carrier battle group under Admiral Kree.
Costume Construction[edit | edit source]
The Marduk uses the saucer and nacelles of a Prometheus-class Multi-Vector Advanced Escort, but the hull and pylons of a Phoenix-class.
