The Edison class was a 25th century Federation starship class, a temporal warship and variant subclass of the 23rd century Hoover-class warship, in Starfleet service from the 2410s decade. (STO website: The Temporal Warship Bundle!, STO - Rise of Discovery mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")

The class was conceived when the Advanced Starship Design Bureau (ASDB) recovered the 150-year abandoned Yard 39 and its Hoover-class technology. (STO website: The Stats of the Europa Class!)

Service history and specifications[edit | edit source]

The Edison in 2256.

The Hoover-class USS Edison was active in the 2250s decade. In the Battle of the Binary Stars on 11 May 2256 that marked the onset of the Federation-Klingon War of 2256-2257, the Edison was tragically lost in battle with the Klingons. (DSC episode: "Battle at the Binary Stars")

150 years later, in 2410, Ensign Elyos and Lieutenant Whetu of the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards discussed the recovery of Yard 39 and several hulks of Starfleet ships hastily abandoned there when the star TL-9139 erupted and flooded its system with baryon radiation in 2259. This included the second USS Edison, another Hoover-class starship. With the radiation suddenly diminishing, Starfleet was able to recover Yard 39 and its assets. (STO - Age of Discovery short story: "Utopia Planetia: The Mystery of Yard 39")

The starship development project moved from the ASDB to the Allied Cooperative Starship Development Board (ACSDB), also under the auspices of Vice Admiral S.J. Hemphill. In conjunction with other Khitomer Alliance members, the temporal warship was conceived, with the revived Hoover- and the new Edison-classes representing Starfleet's contribution. (STO website: The Temporal Warship Bundle!)

Components were interchangeable between the Edison and the 356.61[1] meter-long Hoover. (STO - Rise of Discovery mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")

Livery[edit | edit source]

In the 25th century, the design of the Edison-class temporal warship allowed its commanding officer to choose from different designs of hull materials, which could be modified further at shipyards. (STO - The Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")

Furthermore, the installation of deflector shields from specific factions modified the hull appearance, including shields from the Reman Resistance, the Breen Confederacy and the Dominion. (STO missions: "Coliseum", "Cold Storage", "Boldly They Rode")
