In starship classification, a command ship was a type of starship designed to lead other vessels. This could be accomplished through an impressive appearance that inspired those around them. Sufficient inspiration could turn the tide in a battle. (STO website: The Janeway Class Takes Flight)

History and specifications[]

Borg command ship in 2409.

In the 2400s and 2410s decades, the military forces of the Khitomer Alliance designated various iterations of existing and new ship classes as command ships. One of their features included a bridge station designated for use by a command division bridge officer. (STO - Klingon War missions: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock", "The Hunt is On", "Explore the Flotilla")

Unimatrix 0047 deployed Borg command ships across the Alpha and Beta Quadrant sector blocks to subdue local resistance. (STO mission: "Borg Red Alert")

In the year 2411, the Janeway-class, acquired from a distant future timeline, was classes as a command science vessel, meaning the command ship abilities were an add-on to a baseline science vessel. (STO website: The Janeway Class Takes Flight)
