USS Katherine Johnson NCC-80118

Deck Layout & Tour


Greetings all, "Mrs. Johnson" here. Allow me to introduce myself. I am the ship's A.I. interpersonal holographic computer. I was programmed and named after the ship's namesake, Mrs. Katherine Coleman Goble Johnson. She was a mid-20th century mathematician and scientist who specialized in calculating orbital mechanics prior to the wide use of computers. Her pioneering work blazed the trail for women and people of color and was critical to the success of the first and subsequent U.S. crewed spaceflights. Be sure to read and view her amazing story elsewhere on this site.  

Welcome to our ship's deck layout and self-guided tour. Let me tell you a little about our ship. The USS Katherine Johnson Luna-class vessel has 17 decks (+2 Sensor Pod).  The layout of Decks 1-11 are presented here for your edification and to give you a little taste of what it would be like to live on a starship. Decks 12-17 (not included) are dedicated to ship infrastructure and support systems, such as: Fusion Reactors, Tractor Beams, Communications Array, Shields, Life Support, Deflectors, Nacelle Access, Structural Integrity, Impulse and Thruster Assemblies, Fuel Storage Tanks, Waste Management, Warp Core Ejection System, Antimatter Storage, and Phaser Arrays. The ship's exceptional environmental systems allow for a crew of greater diversity (human/non-human mix) than previous starships. Kj's infrastructure provides 24/7 care and support (such as lodging, food, medical, and general services) for the ship's multispecies complement of 70 officers, 280 crew.  We hope you enjoy the tour of our ship's decks! I'll meet you again at the end with a special invitation.
