Mission Pods

For this mission, the Navajo is equipped with three science pods.

Science Pod:  The science pod group is actually a suite consisting of two different pod types.  The lower-mounted pod consists of specialized planetary survey sensors which can perform geological, biological and meteorological scans of high resolution at faster rates that most Federation starships.  The two upper pod emplacements are occupied by long-range sensor systems and lateral scanners designed primarily to assist in investigations of astronomical phenomena, greatly aiding in stellar cartography-related scans.  Due to the complexities involved with establishing a stable warp field, usage of the long-range sensors on the pods is only permitted during select situations while the ship is at warp.  Should such a situation arise, computer algorithms reshape the warp field surrounding the ship to create two additional holes in the field, allowing only little subspace interference.  This process is similar to that of reconfiguring the warp field to allow for use of the bussard collectors.
