5.0 Computer and Communication Systems

5.1 Library Computer
5.11 The library computer provides mission support including sensor
interpretation, science modeling , translation,
information cross-indexing, and miscellaneous functions.
5.12 Two Ferranti FASFAX 2C Mainframes are installed on deck
7/8 (core) and Deck 19
5.13 Each is composed 60 modules of 65,536 optical transtator chips 
arranged into a Duotronic III - standard dual-paradigm neural network.
5.14 Maximum speed is 46k PHz (Phrase operations per second)
with the universal translator program, 35K Phz science.
5.15 Hull mainframe is maintained in cold-sync backup.
5.16 Integration with engineering, tactical, sensor,
specialized science processors via ODN (Optical Data Network).
5.18 Modifications peculiar to ship:
Universal translator : T'fyen Lingua 931.2 
Isolinear chip-equipped accelerator boosts science to 39K
FASFAX-EUCLID bus-augmentation custom integration package
Hosseini HL-200 Personal Holocell processor standfree;
QTS 810 Virtual port bus to Q9000 std.
Schonlein CC Port adaptor to QTS 810 port;
Norii WORMOFF W100 Ver4.0 vaccine/immunator standfree

5.2 Core Memory
5.21 Core Memory provides indexed data resources for the library computer.
5.22 Four FASFAX DATAVAULT cores are installed, 1 active core + 1 
protected archive set per mainframe.
5.23 Each is composed of 30 modules of 64 clusters of 1024 nickel
carbonitrium crystal wafers.
5.24 Total static memory = 3.23 Bil Quads
5.25 Dynamic access memory = 125 K Quad/sec. (uprated)
5.26 Archive updating each shift/per command /polling schedule.

5.3 Dedicated Processors
5.31 Dedicated processors provide specialized tactical, sensing, and engineering control.
5.32 Two Ferranti FSTR-TAC fire-control units installed Deck 11 with high 
parasitic integration to the FASFAX unit.
5.33 One EUCLID SSDGI (Sciential Sensory Data-Gathering and 
Interpretation) system architecture distributed between Deck 7 nodes and all sensor elements.
5.34 Modified EUCLID parasitism on the FASFAX unit has evolved a unified
74:1 Bg noise-reduction filter architecture,
improving multiband pattern extration 35% -250%
5.35 Two Mercury 3100 PCS Eng. computers installed Deck 7,16
5.36 PCS units run at independent clock-sync isolation with
in-warp step-in within accel/decel limits.

5.4 Computer Network
5.41 The computer network provides multiple interface options 
to provide versatile or data-dense access.
5.42 A redundant optical data network exists throughout the
volume of the ship.
5.43 An isolated backup ODN provides more limited coverage.
5.44 A secondary RF network provides low bandwidth
5.45 A tertiary, protected Secure ODN serves command, tactical,
engineering and medical terminals.
5.46 The electro-plasma power transfer network can provide
limited communications functions.
5.47 2850 Multistandard dataports installed for various peripherals:
terminals, communicators, tricorders, PADDs, instrumentation, security devices,...
5.48 Rapid field ODN extension/rerouting possible.
