Probes

Notes

Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Probes1

Any of various devices fitted with sensor and propulsion systems which allow them to be deployed from a Starship in order to gather information. Most Federation probes are fired from a standard photon torpedo tube, and many are externally almost identical to a photon torpedo.1 Whilst many Federation probes are short range sublight devices, some are capable of warp speed travel. The Class 8 probe is capable of sustained travel at high warp speeds.2 On occasion highly specialised probes are employed for significant events, such as the one created by Dr Stubbs to study a stellar explosion in 2366.3
