The Janeway class was a 31st century Federation starship class, a command science vessel and variant subclass of the 24th century Intrepid-class long-range science vessel, in Starfleet service by the 3060s and into the 3180s decades.

History and specifications
The Intrepid-class science vessel USS Voyager was notable for traversing the Delta Quadrant after being stranded there in the 2370s decade. The ship survived the odyssey thanks to the leadership of Captain Kathryn Janeway. (VOY episode & novelization: Endgame)
The Janeway was armed with 32nd century phaser banks, phaser beam arrays, photon torpedo launchers, and the newly developed photonic cannon. This cannon had been theorized in the late 24th century and was made reality through programmable matter and holography. Ships of this era were equipped with a cloaking device and deflector shields. While detached warp nacelles were common in Starfleet around this time, the command science vessel's primary hull and secondary hull were also physically disconnected from one another.
Like its Intrepid-class ancestor, the Janeway class employed variable geometry pylons, meaning its warp nacelles moved from a lowered resting position at sublight to a raised position for warp flight.
At some point in the 32nd century, ships of this class were time-displaced to the 2410s decade and re-entered service as tier 6 command science vessels in the Khitomer Alliance. (STO website: The Janeway Class Takes Flight)
In the 25th century, the design of the Janeway-class command science vessel allowed its commanding officer to choose from different designs of hull materials, which could be modified further at shipyards.
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")
