Although the basic //Nebula// design has approximately 80% of the capability of a //​Galaxy//​-class vessel in most areas, the addition of the mission pod brings that figure up to 95% or more in that specific area. This flexibility actually allows the //Nebula// design to accomplish almost identical missions despite its smaller size.+Atop the primary hull, though connected to the secondary hull, was a superstructure which could support a variety of mission pods including a sensor pod, an enhanced tactical pod, a colony transport pod, an emergency field hospital unit, or additional warp nacelles.

Like the //​Galaxy//​-class they have received regular upgrades to their systems, most notably a new warp core design. With the advent of the threats from the Romulan Star Empire, Dominion and Borg, Starfleet invested in 67 new enhanced tactical pods for the //​Nebula//​-class,​ and sadly in recent years most of the class have carried this as the default loadout.+In service the //​Nebula//​-class has proved highly satisfactory,​ and in many ways these ships form the backbone of Starfleet'​s exploratory and scientific programs.

 ===Weapons Pod=== ===Weapons Pod===
-With the recent Borg invasions and Dominion war, Starfleet quickly mobilised to deploy the weapons pod, which contains 8 forward-facing pulse fire torpedo launchers and 3 additional type X phaser banks. The launchers are fed by an additional 200 photon torpedoes stored in the pod itself. The weapons pod is also equipped with two shield generators (one main, one backup), since it was realized that the pod would be an easy target. The shield generators are the same type used through-out the rest of the ship, and draw power directly from the auxiliary energy reserves during red alert situations. ​+With the recent Borg invasions and Dominion war, Starfleet quickly mobilised to deploy the weapons pod, which contains 8 forward-facing pulse fire torpedo launchers and 3 additional type X phaser banks.
