Autodestruct

NotesImages
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Autodestruct1

A procedure built into Federation Starships which allows them to destroy themselves in order to prevent capture.2 Some autodestruct modes detonate explosive devices within the ship,3 while others bring all of the antimatter fuel into contact with matter simultaneously. This mode is more than sufficient to completely vaporize the largest vessels.4 Most vessels require both the Captain and one or more senior officers to agree in order to engage the autodestruct feature.3
