Will I was born in San Deigo Calf. in 1969. Moved to Arkansas in 1973 and lived in Ft. Smith all my life. I have been a star trek fan all my life, so 1989 I started to play around ship designing. I Design the States class in 1992, I have designed more then 15 ships, but the states are my best ship. In 1998 I started working for the U of Arkansas of Fayetteville in NW Arkansas and been here tell Oct. 12.2022. 

On Feb. 18, 2021, I had to get a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine shot to stay working at the U of Arkansas. But Sep. 1, 2021, I woke-up with bell's palsy and hour later TIA stroke. In Hospital for two & half weeks, what back work for four months and on short term disability. On Oct 12, 2022, I had to retired U of Arkansas after 24 years.

 And My Son is my Golden Heart of my life. 

The States Fast Assault Cruisers was the first operational Troop Missile Cruiser in Starfleet. The States Class succeeded the Kolm-An Class and Continent Class as the Federation's heavy Assault ship designs. These unique vessels have gained the respect and admiration of their crews because of their handling characteristics and offensive capabilities. The overall design came from Terran MACOS Engineering design teams to create a cruiser with photon torpedoes as its main weapons. And the main military troops number to 160 and up to 600. And it is first ship in Starfleet to have holodeck for troop. Plus, it has the only two transporters rooms that has 80 pods each. One vessel that stands out of all the States Class is the USS Arkansas (NCC-63000). It had more battle's seen in the later 24th Century during the Dominion War. 


 Fast Assault Cruisers are the most specific troop movement vessels assigned to most space navies. Fast Assault Cruisers are designed to quickly load men and material for moderately extended operations, transport troops to a planet and support landing and operations planet side for months at a time. Most Assault Ships are moderately armed, able to aggressively defend themselves and support defending escorts from hostile space born combat platforms. Most Assault Ships are able to support up to 1,000 troops in ground operations. Many Assault Ships have moderate medical facilities, cargo replication ability, some research capability and minor command and control ability. Assault Ships have a wide range of specialized defense system to keep troops safe during transport and in the initial stages of an assault. Many Assault Ships also has photon torpedoes as its main weapons to help protect the vessel and conduct ground attacks. Fast Assault Cruisers are usually faster than Troop Transports and are often seen in large convoys with other Troops vessels.

The images of the States class are my own. Off and on sents 1989 I have put the States class together. The are in Four PC games downloadable and Three Fan online games.

This site is commission for all the hard work and time though I put in over 30 years scents 1989.
