==History==
By [[2196]], the {{class|Daedalus}} of ships was retired and replaced by the ''Einstein''- and {{class|Baton Rouge}}es. For the next three decades, these ships were crewed with Starfleet's best and brightest. ({{r|ST|Federation: The First 150 Years}})

Sometime around [[2223]], the {{uSS|Gates|Einstein class}} was forced to return to [[Starbase 9]] from a scientific study to receive minor repairs. [[Robert April]] thought that the design lacked in self-sufficiency, which he sought to rectify by designing the {{class|Constitution}}. Until that project, no known ship had been able to break the Warp 7 barrier. ({{r|ST|Federation: The First 150 Years}})

This class is similar in design to many [[23rd century]] [[scout]] class starships, with a saucer-shaped [[primary hull]] and a single [[warp nacelle]]. A difference is the [[secondary hull]] that most scout vessels lack. One such vessel, the starship {{uSS|Kelvin|NCC-0514}} was still in operational service by [[2233]]. ({{mn|TOS|{{dis1|Star Trek|film}}}})

({{mn|TOS|{{dis1|Star Trek|film}}}})
   
==Specifications==
+
In the [[alternate reality (Nero, 2233)|alternate reality]], starship classes such as the [[USS Armstrong|''Armstrong''-type]], [[USS Mayflower (NCC-1621)|''Mayflower''-type]], and the [[USS Newton (NCC-1727)|''Newton''-type]] were based on the same design lineage. ({{m|TOS|{{dis1|Star Trek|film}}}})
===Technical data===
 
The ship's space-frame consisted of a wide, circular primary hull, an underslung [[warp nacelle]], and a [[secondary hull]] suspended above the [[saucer section]]. A [[deflector dish]] marked the secondary hull's front, while the [[shuttlebay]] was at its aft end. Red [[impulse engine]]s sat at the saucer's aft, and a blue impulse engine was placed at the end of the sole warp nacelle. ({{m|TOS|{{dis1|Star Trek|film}}}})
 
 
In the [[2250s]] [[decade]] of the [[Kelvin timeline|''Kelvin'' timeline]], {{kt|Starfleet}} ship types such as the [[uSS Armstrong (NCC-1769)|''Armstrong''-]], [[uSS Mayflower (NCC-1621)|''Mayflower''-]], and the [[uSS Newton (NCC-1727)|''Newton''-type]] were based on the same design lineage. ({{m|TOS|{{dis1|Star Trek|film}}}})
 
 
In the [[2270s]] of the prime timeline, the ''Newton'' retained the basic hull components of the ''Einstein'', in a different configuration. {{c|TOS|sub=Waypoint|Consider Eternity|sub2 = {{a|Waypoint Special|Special}}}})
 
 
The class, acquired by the [[Lobi Crystal Consortium]] from the ''Kelvin'' timeline and sold to the [[Alpha Quadrant Alliance]], re-entered Starfleet service in [[2410]]. It was now rated [[science vessel]]-based [[tier 6]] [[destroyer]]. With heavy armor and armaments, one focus was to keep its crew and allies safe, and another on to maintain structural integrity in the face of adversity. The tier-6 destroyer was equipped with an [[advanced engagement system]] [[console]]. ({{web|STO|sub=Season 18: Awakening|The Kelvin Divergence Lock Box}})
 
 
A vessel of the class was available to command by officers of Starfleet, and AQA officers allied with Starfleet. ({{sTO|sub=Season 18: Awakening|Welcome to Earth Spacedock}})
 
 
===Class variations===
 
While the ''Einstein'' was a modular design, its components could not be exchanged with other ship classes in the [[25th century]]. As such, it had only one template, also called ''Einstein''. ({{sTO|sub=Season 18: Awakening|Welcome to Earth Spacedock}})
 
 
The ''Einstein''-class destroyer allowed its [[commanding officer]] to modify its livery and choose from different [[hull]] {{dis|material|hull}} options, which could be modified at allied hubs. These options were designated:
 
*''{{dis|Einstein|material}}''
 
*{{dis|NX|material}}
 
*{{dis|NX Refit|material}}
 
*{{dis|Type 0|Starfleet}}
 
*{{dis|Type 1|Starfleet}}
 
*{{dis|Type 2|Starfleet}}
 
*{{dis|Type 3|Starfleet}}
 
*{{dis|Type 4|Starfleet}}
 
*{{dis|Type 5|Starfleet}}
 
*{{dis|Type 6|Starfleet}}
 
*{{dis|Type 7|Starfleet}}
 
*{{dis|Type 8|Starfleet}}
 
*[[Type 8b]]
 
*{{dis|Veteran|Starfleet material}}. ({{sTO|sub=Season 18: Awakening|Welcome to Earth Spacedock}})
 
 
Furthermore, the installation of [[deflector shield]]s from specific factions modified the hull appearance, including shields from the [[Reman Resistance]], the [[Breen Confederacy]] and the [[Dominion]]. ({{sTO|{{stod|Coliseum}}|Cold Storage|Boldly They Rode}})
