USS Enterprise computer core, late 2260s

The computer core (or memory core) is the location of a starship's or space station's central computer.

The computer core houses primary processing equipment. 23rd century Starfleet ships had duotronic systems, while 24th century ships had isolinear cores. The computer cores communicate with each other and ship's systems via optical data network (ODN).

The Galaxy-class of Federation starships carry three computer cores, while ships of the Intrepid- and Sovereign-classes contain two. These multiple cores provide redundancy in case one of the cores should be damaged or destroyed.
