History and specifications
This type of light cruiser starship was in service to the Federation Starfleet during the late 24th century, and bore a resemblance to the Enterprise-subclass refit Constitution-class heavy cruisers that were in service in the 23rd century.
These variant ships were 364.85 meters in length, 155.44 meters in width and 93.26 meters tall. This type of light cruiser massed 650,000 metric tons and was normally staffed by 115 officers and crew. With a 1,500+ cochrane unit warp core feeding two warp nacelles and two impulse engine modules, these vessels could maintain a maximum speed of warp 9.75 for 12 hours. Armament on these ships included 11 Type-X phaser emitters and 4 photon torpedo launchers, with defenses of standard deflector shields.
Ships of this type were constructed from surplus equipment at the ASDB Integration Facility at McKinley Orbital Spacedock, Earth. Vessels of this modification saw action during the Dominion War in the mid-2370s decade. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual)
