Class M planets range in age from 3 to 10 billion years old. Their diameters range in size from 10,000 to 15,000 km. They are always located in the ecozone region of a star's solar system. Their surfaces are comprised with a relatively thin tectonic layer floating on a molten rock mantle, usually with active volcanoes present. Class M planets have an abundant amount of water necessary for life to exist. Their atmospheres contain oxygen/nitrogen with other trace gases. Life forms are almost always present, flourishing as extensive plant and animal life. Usually a sentient race is also present.

Class M planets are also called Minshara Class, a Vulcan term.

Planets with more than 80% surface water fall under Class O or Class P. (Star Trek: Star Charts)

This article is about a designation for passenger ships. You may be looking for the M-class starfighter.
The Lady of Mindor, an M-class luxury liner

The M-class was a type of interplanetary luxury liner.

Contents

History

The designation seems to have been relatively common, and apparently applied to ships of several different types, though all of them were purpose-designed as passenger ships, as opposed to other liners which used converted freighter hulls.

Among ships known to have been designated as M-class were Lady of Mindor, a 310-meter, 600-passenger Lady-class ship from Shobquix Yards, and also the 500-meter-long Mon Calamari vessel Kuari Princess, which carried 3,500 tourists.

Known ships

  • Lady of Mindor
  • Kuari Princess

Behind the scenes

The M-class designation is first used to describe the Lady of Mindor in Han Solo's Revenge. The Kuari Princess was described as an M'-Class luxury liner' in Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, First edition.

At one stage, it may have been intended to identify both ships as vessels of the same class, but current canon evidence defines them as very different designs. This implies that the M-class designation is simply a generic term for a range of luxury liners.
