A class-6 probe

A class-6 probe or more specifically class VI communications link and emergency buoy was a type of probe used by the Federation Starfleet in the 24th century.

Technical specificationsEdit

The probes were essentially modified class-3 probes and had a range of 4.3x1010 kilometers. They were powered by a micro fusion engine which could propel them at warp 0.8. (TNG reference: Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual)

In addition to standard sensors, these probes had a radio- and subspace-transceiver capable of transmitting at 350 megawatt and expanded deuterium storage to power the transceiver and adjust their orbit. (TNG reference: Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual)
