Voyager Class has been equipped with 2 seperation sequences. The
first, and standard, functions similarly to the separation sequence
of the Galaxy Class.
second, an emergency sequence, is used during imminent core breaches
and as an emergency combat maneuver. The emergency sequence is
extremely faster than the standard. The docking clamps release
then rapidly retract. Following this, the saucer fires retro-thrusters
which blast it away from the main hull at 4 times the velocity
of the ship just before the thrusters fired. The entire sequence
lasts about 3 seconds.
emergency sequence can cause severe damage to, or the destruction
of, the vessel if not performed while flying perfectly straight.
