There are four basic entities in this toy ontology: Starship, Zone, TimeStep, and SensorReport. In the ontology, those entities are modeled as subclasses of the class pr-ow:ObjectEntity, as it can be seen in the picture on the right.
According to the Treknology Encyclopedia, Starship is the designation for a large type of space vessel with warp drive. A starship typically consists of more than one deck and has separate departments such as the bridge, engineering or sickbay. In our model, we use this word to designate any space vessel.
A zone can be either a deep space, a planetary system, or the boundary of a Black Hole. It is assumed that a OwnStarship, when in operation, has 80% chance of being traveling in a Deep Space Zone, 15% in a Planetary System and 5% in the Boundaries of a Black Hole. In this model, Black Hole Boundaries are prefered places for ambushes from attacking starships with cloaking devices, since the high magnetic turbulance generated in those zones makes it very hard to even the most advanced sensors to distinguish it from the magnetic disturbance created by a cloaking device.
TimeStep is a special class that is used to model dynamic nodes, and there are quite a few in this domain.
Finally, starship detection is performed by the Enterprise’s suite of sensors, which can correctly detect and discriminate starships with an accuracy of 95%. The product of those sensors are individuals of the class SensorReport.
When opening the Star Trek files in an ontology editor, there will be many other classes, subclasses, properties, and individuals defined there. A comprehensive explanation of each element would require a deeper understanding of the PR-OWL structure, which is too complex to explain here. Nonetheless, all the elements are explained in the website, which uses the Star Trek ontology as a tool to help understand PR-OWL concepts.
