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


General Overview

The New Orleans-class was one of Starfleet's most numerous frigate designs during the mid twenty-fourth century. The class features three outboard photon torpedo pods, two dorsal and one ventral, making it well-suited for combat. The New Orleans-class aslo has an elliptical saucer section similar in style to those which would later be used on the Galaxy-class.

Famous New Orleans-class starships include the USS Rutledge NCC-57295, which fought in the Cardassian War under the command of Captain Benjamin Maxwell, and the USS Kyushu NCc-65491, which was destroyed by the Borg at Wolf 359 in 2366.

The New Orleans-class has slowly been succeeded by the similar-sized Steamrunner-class as Starfleet's lead frigate design.
