It would be this ship which would live on in infamny in starfleet history for hundreds of years to come along with its captain Eric Maxiumus.
Unique changes in the Firestorm classEdit
The changes made with the Devastator were great indeed the ship was practicly twice the mass of the Firestorm and lacked a Kalminite reactor. Instead to provide a formidable amount of power and strenght an unknown alloy was used that exceeded the strength of the neutronium hull that the Firestorm has. the ship uses a Pyrocore (or in laymen's terms 16- 45 deck tall warp cores capable of producing over 1.5 peta watts of power. The ship lacked the Null banks of the Firestorm but had over 3000 fighters that could easily make most starships fall without having the Devastator actually fight. The ship also had a new experimental weapon that was capable of causing black holes to be unable to exist nearby and render all black hole weapons useless. It could also cause the teutonic plates of planets surface to be lifted up to orbit then dropped back down in a pile driver sequence.
The Section 31 plot Edit
Section 31 was given charge by 3 starfleet admirals who dreamed of controling all the worlds the Federation had and wanted to make the Starfleet Coalition. This Coalition would be highly militant and would use aliens as the ground troops while humans would be the strategists of the battles. The goal was to unify the galaxy.
The devastator was ordered to attack both Starfleet headquarters and the federation headquarters to destabilize the power of the federation to allow the Admirals to take over the Federation. The Devastator completely destroyed San Franscisco and also leveled the Breen homeworld and its fleets were destroyed. It would be the Tholians who would attempt to be the first to make peace with the Coalition during the 30 day struggle for power. The Coalition was terminate when the devasator was destroyed as at that time it was the main base of operation for the Coalition.
