When the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 entered active duty in 2245, it was the pride and the flagship of the Federation. Under the commands of Robert April, Christopher Pike, James T. Kirk, and other captains, it was an exploratory, defensive, and diplomatic starship that expanded the frontiers of the Federation and brought greater knowledge of the galaxy to all. The U.S.S. Enterprise had several major refits during its lifetime, including one in 2270 in which virtually every major system was replaced. After completing another deep-space cruise (2271-2276), the ship served as the Starfleet Academy training vessel under Capt. Spock. The Enterprise was self-destructed by Adm. James Kirk in orbit of the Genesis Planet during 2285 in order to keep it from falling into Klingon hands.

The second starship to bear the name Enterprise, this new type of Constitution-class starship was launched in 2286 to carry forward the missions and ideals of the original Enterprise. It was rushed into service in early 2287 in order to respond to the hostage threat on Nimbus III. In 2393, it was assigned to escort the Klingon chancellor Gorkon to Terra for peace talks after the Klingon moon of Praxis exploded. The Enterprise, alongside the U.S.S. Excelsior NCC-2000, played a major part in saving the Khitomer peace conference from Klingon insurgents. The U.S.S. Enterprise was scheduled for decommissioning shortly after the conference.

During the maiden voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B in 2293, a distress signal was received from two El-Aurian Whorfin-class transports, the S.S. Lakul and the S.S. Robert Fox, reporting that they were caught in some kind of enormous energy ribbon, known later as the Nexus Ribbon. The Enterprise immediately went to rescue the ships, but was only able to save some of the passengers from the Lakul before becoming caught in the ribbon itself. James T. Kirk and Montgomery Scott, both on board as guests, used the ship's deflector array to pull themselves free of the anomaly. As the Enterprise pulled away, however, an energy tendril from the Nexus lashed out and breached the hull where Kirk was working, and nothing was known of Kirk's fate until the Veridian III incident more than 70 years later. The Enterprise-B was commanded by a new but capable captain, John Harriman, and boldly continued in the tradition of the Enterprise name during the many explorations and encounters of its career.

The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-C was the ill-fated 4th ship of the name Enterprise, which sacrificed itself to defend the Klingon outpost of Narendra III when it was under attack by Romulans in the year 2344. In the midst of the battle, with the Enterprise badly damaged and her crew decimated, a photon torpedo explosion opened a temporal rift, sending her 22 years in the future. With the helmsman taking command after Captain Rachel Garrett was killed, and with the Enterprise-D and Tasha Yar of that alternate, militaristic timeline helping, the Enterprise-C was able to go back to its rightful place in time and history, securing friendly relations between the Federation and Klingon Empire through its sacrifice. Launched in 2340.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D was part of the first series of Galaxy-class cruisers produced. The 5th starship to bear the name Enterprise and be flagship of the Federation under that legendary title, she and her crew truly did "boldly go where no one has gone before", journeying to the far reaches of the galaxy, and beyond in some cases. Launched October 4, 2363, the Enterprise-D plied the spacelanes on missions that would place it in the same extraordinary league as the original Enterprise under Captain James Kirk. It was the first ship to encounter the being known as Q and the related Q Continuum, and was first in the Alpha Quadrant to encounter the Borg. The Enterprise-D was lost in 2371 when its warp core was breached in battle with the renegade Klingon Duras sisters and the saucer section crash-landed onto the surface of Veridian III. Its class is still the largest being used by Starfleet.

The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E is a member of the longest and most powerful class of ships in Starfleet, as well as the 6th starship Enterprise. Its primary mission is definitely a military one as it has a crew of only about 855 men and women and carries no families. Launched in 2372, this ship has several new advancements, not the least of which are highly upgraded phasers, quantum torpedoes, bio/neural gel packs, large military Captain's Yacht, and new ecologically sound warp drive systems. In 2373, the Enterprise-E disregarded orders and joined the assembled fleet to protect Terra from a Borg Cube. It then traveled back to April 4, 2063, where it was forced to protect the historic flight of Zephram Cochrane's Phoenix from that Cube's escape sphere. Then, in 2375, the Enterprise played a critical role in exposing the planned exploitation of the Ba'ku people by members of Starfleet, who had aligned with the Son'a and planned to harvest the Ba'ku planet's natural anti-aging properties. This newest Enterprise is currently still on its first five-year cruise.

Located in the Bajoran system, space station Deep Space Nine has become an economic, cultural, and scientific center in the Alpha quadrant due to its proximity to the only known stable wormhole. It was built in 2346 as the Cardassian mining station Terok Nor, was abandoned 18 years later by the Cardassians after stripping Bajor of its natural resources, and was later taken control of by the Bajoran people, who allowed it to be run by Starfleet. In that same year, 2369, the Bajoran wormhole was accidentally found by then Commander Benjamin Sisko and the late Lt. Comm. Jadzia Dax, opening a gateway to the Gamma quadrant. The Cardassians again gained control of the station in 2373 with the help of Dominion forces, so that those armies would have direct access to the Bajoran wormhole. Fortunately, the combined Alpha quadrant forces won back control of Deep Space Nine and Starfleet has retained control since. With the end of the Dominion War, and under the protection of a new U.S.S. Defiant, Deep Space Nine has again become a major hub in the Alpha quadrant.

The U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205 began development in 2366 as a weapon against the Borg, but was abandoned by Starfleet after the Borg threat diminished. In 2371, the Defiant was stationed at space station Deep Space Nine as a first line of defense against the Gamma quadrant Jem'Hadar and Dominion forces. This ship, and subsequent class, has an extremely high offense- and defense-to-size ratio, being described as an overpowered, overshielded, overarmoured, and undersized ship. In the capable hands of Capt. Benjamin Sisko and Commander Worf, and with a Romulan cloaking device as well as many new weapon systems onboard, it was a very valuable asset to Starfleet and the United Federation of Planets. The Defiant served faithfully and honorably on station at Deep Space Nine and during the Dominion War, and was lost in the line of duty in 2375. It was replaced weeks later with another Defiant-class ship, the U.S.S. São Paulo NCC-75663, which was renamed Defiant to honor the fallen class vessel.

U.S.S. Voyager NCC-74656 was a brand new ship when, in 2371 and on it's first mission, it was sent into a volatile area of space called the Badlands to track down a missing Maquis vessel on which a Starfleet operative had been placed. After entering this area, all contact was lost with the ship and crew until 2374, when the ship's Emergency Medical Hologram (EMH) established contact with the Federation, reporting that the ship is currently travelling through the Delta Quadrant on its way back home. In addition, contact was again established in 2376 when Lt. Reginald Barclay contacted the Voyager using a Vulcan MIDAS array. This method was employed to maintain contact with Voyager until it arrived home, first on a monthly basis, then on a near-daily basis as refinements were introduced. Employing the first generation of new technology such as the Bio/Neural Gel Packs, this is a state of the art spacecraft. The advanced shuttle Delta Flyer was built by the crew in 2375 as a high endurance vessel capable of many mission profiles. Finally, in 2377, after seven years in the Delta Quadrant, Voyager was able to return home through a Borg Transwarp Corridor.

When launched on April 15, 2151, Enterprise became the most technically advanced object ever assembled by humans. The ship was built around the technologies developed by the Warp Five Complex on Earth: an engine and supporting systems capable of attaining and maintaining speeds up to Warp 5.0. In its 32 years of development, construction of Enterprise was hampered constantly by the Vulcan High Command, who felt that Humans were not yet ready for deep space exploration and were unwilling to share their more advanced technologies. Nevertheless, Enterprise was finished and embarked on her mission of exploration, which included first human contact with races such as the Suliban and Klingons.

On April 5, 2063, the future of Terra was changed forever when Zephram Cochrane took his ship, the Phoenix, for its first and only flight. It was the first ship from Terra employing the faster-than-light technology called Warp Propulsion. Because of the nature of such an event, that one flight would lead to humanity's first undenyable contact with an alien species, the formation of the United Federation of Planets, and the expansion of humanity throughout the galaxy. Cochrane, a brilliant though unstable scientist, had worked for years with his aide Lily Sloane to develop and build the Phoenix, using an old nuclear ICBM located in Montana, North America.

Only one day before the flight, however, the entire project was nearly lost when a Borg sphere from the 24th century traveled through time and began firing on the Phoenix's location. Luckily, the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E was able to follow the Borg ship and destroy it before critical damage was done. Engineering crews from the Enterprise immediately began repair work on the Phoenix to get it's flight back on schedule, and on the next day, Doctor Cochrane, Commander William Riker, and Lt. Commander Geordi LaForge launched the Phoenix into history. While they did not know it at the time, the Phoenix was almost lost a second time, nearly missed by a photon torpedo fired by the Borg-controlled Enterprise. The ship made it to warp, and was detected by an early Vulcan scoutship, the T'Plana Hath, which trailed it back to Terra. That night, the Vulcans made first contact with Terrans, through Cochrane and the others in the community where he lived; in addition, the Enterprise crew was able to overthrow the Borg invaders and travel back to its proper time. Through these incredible series of events, the Phoenix was able to live up to it's namesake and rise from the ashes of war to create an era of peace and prosperity.

The Oberth-class U.S.S. Grissom was dispatched to the newly formed Genesis Planet in 2285 on a mission of planetary research and cataloguing. It was to be the first of a string of ships that would study the scientific marvel that was Genesis. After the formation of the planet, David Marcus, one of the lead researchers of Project Genesis, was assigned to the Grissom, as was Lt. Saavik, after her training cruise aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701. Soon after arriving at the planet and deploying its science team to the surface, a Klingon Bird-of-Prey entered Genesis space to claim the world for the Empire. Though only meant to disable, as the Grissom was essentially a defenseless vessel, a photon torpedo shot by the Bird-of-Prey destroyed the science ship. Lt. Saavik, the only surviving member of the Grissom landing party, and the reanimated body of Spock were later rescued by the crew of the Enterprise.

In preparation for the testing of the Genesis Device, in 2285 the U.S.S. Reliant NCC-1864 was assigned the task of locating a planet or planetoid in the Mutara Sector that was completely devoid of life, and with an environment sufficiently hostile as to not naturally support life. During this mission, the Reliant arrived at a planetoid named Ceti Alpha V and started its tests. Though at first it was thought to contain nothing living, later sensor scans found a tiny concentration of apparent life. Captain Terrell and then-Lieutenant Pavel Andreievich Chekov, who was assigned to the ship as First Officer, traveled to Ceti Alpha V's surface to check the accuracy of the scans, where they found several cargo containers which had been converted to living quarters. These turned out to be the same containers given to 20th century superhuman Khan Noonien Singh and his followers after their unsuccessful attempt to take over the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701. Singh captured Terrell and Chekov, and through the use of indigenous, mind-altering Ceti Eels, were forced to help him capture control of the Reliant and strand its crew on Ceti Alpha V's surface. Singh used the ship in his efforts to find and take revenge on James T. Kirk, ransacking the Regula I research station and stealing the Genesis device in the process. The Reliant was destroyed shortly thereafter when the Genesis device exploded while still inside the vessel, leading to the formation of the unstable Genesis Planet.

When the Excelsior Project first began, Starfleet wanted a ship that would deter trouble, both inside and outside of Federation borders, simply by its sheer presence. They designated this type of vessel as a Space Control Ship, capable of nearly all the missions that a Heavy Cruiser could take on, but with an emphasis on spacelane protection. Except for its massive size, this construction project would have proceeded like any other, had it not been for a groundbreaking scientific program called Transwarp Drive. Midway through the building process, the U.S.S. Excelsior, now designated NX-2000, was selected to be the testbed, and the transwarp propulsion units were installed.

The ship went through normal shakedown runs, but was prematurely launched in a rush of action when the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 was stolen from Earth Spacedock in 2285. When the Excelsior, under the command of Capt. Styles, attempted to go to transwarp, the ship suffered a catastrophic systemwide shutdown. This caused Starfleet to reevaluate the Transwarp Project, and officially abandoned it in 2288. The Excelsior was refitted with standard warp propulsion systems and relaunched in 2290 under Capt. Hikaru Sulu on a three-year mission categorizing atmospheric anomalies. In 2293, immediately after the completion of its first mission, the Excelsior was the first ship on the scene to offer aid (subsequently refused by the Klingons) to the Qo'noS moon of Praxis after it exploded. The ship played a critical part in protecting the Khitomer Peace Conference shortly after the Praxis incident. It was then awarded operational status and its registry changed to NCC-2000. To credit the extraordinary durability of this class, the U.S.S. Excelsior is still in service to this date.

The U.S.S. Saratoga NCC-31911 and her classmates were designed to be semi-dedicated science vessels capable of rapid conversion to frigate status if required. Equipped with duel sensor pods (at port and starboard), mobile sensor resolution in these vessels was nearly the best available at the time, surpassed only by the heavy cruisers.

The Saratoga was pressed into combat in late 2366 as part of Admiral J.P. Hanson's fleet of 40 starships facing the oncoming Borg Cube at Wolf 359. The Saratoga was destroyed in the ensuing battle, along with 38 other ships; only a few of the Saratoga's survivors managed to flee the exploding ship in escape pods. Her first officer, then Lieutenant Commander Benjamin L. Sisko, was one of those survivors, along with his son Jake.

550x251
The U.S.S. Prometheus NX-59650, an experimental prototype Starfleet vessel designed for Deep Space Tactical Assignments, was constructed at the Beta Antares Shipyards and launched Stardate 50749.5. The Prometheus is the first starship of its class, as well as the fastest and most innovative vessel in Starfleet. It is outfitted with regenerative shielding and ablative hull armour (an outer hull layer that vaporizes under weapons fire, thereby dissipating energy and protecting the ship's interior), and can separate into three independent spacecraft, allowing it to employ a multivector assault mode during combat situations.

Another innovation is the installation of holoemitters throughout the ship, which allows its holographic doctor, the EMH Mark II (also a prototype), to operate in all crew areas. This aspect of the design was crucial in recovering the Prometheus from Romulan hands in 2374. During a test flight, a group of Romulans hijacked the starship and killed its crew in an attempt to appropriate its tactical technologies. The EMH -- in concert with the U.S.S. Voyager's Mark I EMH transmitted to the ship from the Delta Quadrant -- managed to flood the ventilation system with neurozine gas, knocking out the Romulans. The two holograms then maneuvered the Prometheus through combat with Romulan D'Deridex Warbirds -- while also under fire from Starfleet ships unaware that the enemy was no longer in control -- and after using the multivector assault mode to defeat the Warbirds, effected the ship's return to the Federation.
