History and specifications
The vessel consisted of an airship-shaped saucer section atop a long, narrow engineering hull. At the bow, the secondary hull extend downward in a cone. A pair of detached warp nacelles, resembling those of the 23rd century Malachowski-class. It was one of at least 10 Federation classes active in the 3060s decade. (DSC episode: "People of Earth")
In 3069 at least four ships of this class operated in the sensor range of the unnamed Federation relay station when the Burn occurred and destroyed all starships with an active warp core across the galaxy by destabilizing their dilithium. When the ships' dilithium crystals went inert, matter/antimatter containment failed, and the vessels detonated instantaneously.
In the year 3188, acting communications chief Aditya Sahil shared his station's sensor logs with Commander Michael Burnham. These included graphics of the Starfleet ship locations and a visualization of their destruction when the Burn was triggered. Burnham reported these findings in a transmission to her ship, the time-displaced USS Discovery on stardate 865211.3. (DSC episode: "People of Earth")
