Here is the description from the series and the Space Seed episode (first appearance of Kahn). I also have a few sound clips attached that I plan to include with the model that describes the nearly 300 year old ship.
Ship description clips for the show are belowhttp://snd.sc/Z1dzvvhttp://snd.sc/Z1dKH0
"Space Seed" is a first-season episode of the original science fiction television series Star Trek, that was first broadcast on February 16, 1967.
On stardate 3141.9, the Federation starship Enterprise, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, finds a derelict ship floating in space. The ship is a DY-100 class freighter that was modified as a sleeper ship for passengers in suspended animation. Its hull identifies it as the SS Botany Bay, although there is no historical record of such a ship. It was launched from Earth in the 1990s, in an era known as the Eugenics Wars.
Scanning for signs of life, Chief Medical Officer Dr. McCoy confirms that there is something still alive on board, but is not quite sure if it is human. A landing-party consisting of Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy, Chief Engineer Scott, and historian Lt. Marla McGivers, is formed and beamed over to the freighter. Kirk has selected McGivers because she specializes in late 20th-century history and culture.
The landing party finds the cargo of 84 humans, 72 of whom are still alive, still in suspended-animation after nearly 300 years.
