The Galaxy-class is a class of Federation starship that served in Starfleet in the latter half of the twenty-fourth century.


General Overview

The Galaxy-class was a Starfleet vessel first introduced in the late 2350s as one of the largest and most powerful Federation starship classes of its time. A replacement for the aging Ambassador-class, the Galaxy represented a cutting-edge combination of existing and new technologies into an ambitious design. With a standard mission length of five years and ten years between overhauls, these vessels could explore farther into space than ever before.

Galaxy-class starships were the first designed to support crew and their families, making them a coveted assignment. They also pioneered routine hull separation with the 'saucer section' being able to operate independently of the 'stardrive section'.

An initial set of six Galaxy-class vessels were built including the much-decorated USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D. After the Borg incursion of 2366-2367, an attack which was foiled by the Enterprise-D, a further set of six spaceframes were assembled to an improved specification.

Technical Data

Physical Arrangement

Can separate and rejoin saucer section without need of a starbase. In the deck listing, the saucer section is referred to as the Primary hull while the engineering section is referred to as the Secondary Hull.
