History and specifications
The class prototype USS Archon (NCC-97410) entered service in the time of the Federation-Klingon War of 2405-2410. The design was an evolution of the 2370s-era Sovereign. The Archon appeared bulkier than its sister classes. Ships of the class were rated as intel assault cruisers upon launch, adding an incremental cloaking device to the assault cruiser lineage.
Khitomer Alliance flag officer in, or aligned with, Starfleet, deployed Archon for missions around the galaxy's four quadrants as part of the four-quadrant strategy. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock", admiralty system)
Following the Battle of Excalbia on stardate 84999.22 in January 2411, which saw the prominent involvement of hero ships from the Federation's past and present, the Archon was among the assault cruisers that received a refit to legendary starship qualifications.

The Archon was upgraded to a tier 6 legendary miracle worker assault cruiser, matching the qualifications of the upgraded Sovereign class, premiered with the USS Sovereign refit. (STO website: Legendary Miracle Worker Assault Cruiser)
