The USS Arbiter (NCC-97501) was a Federation starship, the Arbiter-class battlecruiser prototype, in Starfleet service in the 2410s decade. (STO video game: Iconian War, STO website: Star Trek Online: Federation T6 Battlecruisers)
The Arbiter was one of three Tier 6 battlecruiser prototypes developed by the Alpha Quadrant Alliance to combat the invading Iconian Empire. Each prototype was based on an existing, proven design. The Kurak-, Morrigu- and Arbiter-class prototypes were the first starships equipped with the ablative hazard shielding console. The Arbiter was derived from the Tier 5 Avenger-class battlecruiser and launched alongside the Tier 6 "Fleet" upgrade of the USS Avenger. (STO - Iconian War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")
