Warp and Singularity Cores are a type of starship equipment which was added to the game with Legacy of Romulus. They determine the maximum warp speed in sector space and primarily increase the available power for certain subsystems.
In 2364, Starfleet was considering moving to the construction of the space frame of the multi-section starship. However, during this year, contact with the Romulans was re-established when the USS Enterprise-D encountered a warbird at the Neutral Zone. Since the warbird appeared to outgun the Enterprise, then Starfleet's most powerful ship, by a considerable margin, Starfleet was confronted with what appeared to be a powerful and aggressive enemy. As part of their response, Starfleet requested a complete re-design of the multi-section starship. The new requirement called for an almost totally re-designed vessel; the ship would be capable of splitting into three sections, each of which would have an independent warp drive system. The scientific and diplomatic sections were mostly removed in favor of increased armament and power for the weapons. In place of the type-VIII phaser arrays that the original ship had shared with the Intrepid-class, the type-XII phaser arrays from the Sovereign-class project were included. The shield system was upgraded to the wave-mapped regenerative FSS-3 auto-modulating shields of the Sovereign-class. The advanced warp engine design included many elements of the Sovereign-class, while the ablative armor, high capacity structural integrity fields and the quantum torpedoes developed in conjunction with the Defiant-class project were also included. The computer system was upgraded to a custom-built system designated the M16a tri-core bio-neural gel pack isolinear III processor and the navigational system installed was a custom RAV/ISHAK Mod 3a warp celestial guidance system specifically designed to handle the ship's cruising speed of Warp 9 and a maximum speed of warp 9.999.
Main Engineering aboard a Theurgy-class starship was located on deck 25. The room was constructed around a class 9 warp drive with a tricyclic input manifold. The core provided a maximum output of four thousand teradynes per second. The warp drive was designed to operate for up to three years before refueling. The reaction chamber was equipped with a compositor, which allowed recrystallization of dilithium. The warp drive allowed the ship a top sustainable cruise velocity of warp factor 9.995. The Theurgy-class also featured two secondary warp assemblies. 1e1e36bf2d
