In the [[Kelvin timeline]], the '''''Dreadnought''-class''' was a [[23rd century]] [[starship]] type operated by the [[Federation]]'s [[Section 31]] program as a [[warship]] in the [[2250s]] [[decade]]. The lead ship of the class was the {{uSS|Vengeance|Kelvin timeline}}, launched under the [[cO|command]] of [[Admiral]] [[Alexander Marcus]] in the [[year]] [[2259]].

The lead ship of the class was the [[USS Vengeance (alternate reality)|USS ''Vengeance'']], under the command of [[Admiral]] [[Alexander Marcus]] in [[2259]].

==Specifications==
The ''Dreadnought''-class starship was a class of vessel designed by Section 31 in preparation for hostilities against the {{kt|Klingon Empire}}. The design borrowed heavily from contemporary starships in {{kt|Starfleet}} service and featured a [[saucer section]] and [[secondary hull]]. The vessel was two times larger than the {{class|Constitution|Kelvin timeline}} of the era and was three times as fast. In contrast to other Federation vessels, both the interior and exterior of the Dreadnought Class starships were very dark. Its [[bridge]] was smaller than contemporary vessels and it featured an expansive shuttle bay and, at minimum, nine hangar bays. Automation was common aboard the ship and was enhanced so as few as one person could command the vessel via voice commands.

The vessel was similar to those of other ships of the era and was armed with [[phaser array]]s capable of firing while at warp, multiple [[torpedo]] [[Torpedo launcher|launchers]] including saucer mounted torpedo cannons, and other experimental weaponry among them attack drones that could be launched toward an enemy vessel and fire upon a target before impacting it. She was heavily armored and was designed with protective armor plates that could slide into place to protect vital components of the vessel during combat. Her [[transporter]] was capable of penetrating the shields of a targeted vessel and countermeasures were in place aboard the ship to prevent unauthorized transports to and from the starship. It was also capable of withstanding extreme damage that could destroy other vessels, such as when 72 photon torpedoes detonated on her hangar deck.

Ships of this class were equipped with Mark IV warp capabilities making them faster than other ships of the era and capable of exceeding maximum warp to catch up with a starship it was following by interfacing with their warp bubble. ({{m|TOS|Star Trek Into Darkness}})

==History==
 
==History==
Designed by {{kt|Khan Noonien Singh}}, the ''Dreadnought'' class was built in secret in orbit of [[Jupiter]] and the prototype was completed in roughly one year. After a terrorist attack upon [[Earth]] and the dispatching of the {{USS|Enterprise|Kelvin timeline NCC-1701}} to apprehend the culprit on [[Qo'Nos]], the prototype ''Vengeance'' was taken by Admiral Alexander Marcus to intercept the ''Enterprise'' and eliminate the threat before his origins and the Admiral's actions in them were exposed. The ''Vengeance'' overtook ''Enterprise'' near the [[Neutral Zone]]; however, she escaped destruction with the ''Vengeance'' pursuing and intercepting them in orbit of [[Luna]]. The ''Vengeance'' would later be destroyed after being captured by Khan and piloted into the city of [[San Francisco]].

The fate of the ships of this class has not be revealed. However, in [[2260]], Section 31, had fleet of ships that resembled this class of ship and were equipped with more advanced [[cloaking device]]s. ({{c|TOS|The Khitomer Conflict, Part 2}})

===Background===
 
While it may seem odd that a ship and ship class are named after their general type, this name in particular is an homage to the origin of the term "dreadnought", the HMS ''Dreadnought'', which was a class [[prototype]] as well. Presumably, this starship class could have been led by a prototype USS ''Dreadnought'', but no such vessel was ever mentioned.''<nowiki/>''
 
 
The overall design of the Dreadnought-class is reminiscent of the prime universe's [[Excelsior class]] design, albeit much larger.
