The USS Regent (NCC-97310) was a 25th century Federation starship, a Regent-class tier 5 assault cruiser refit and the prototype of its class. The Regent entered Starfleet service in the 2400s decade and continued operations into the 2410s. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")
History and specifications
The Regent design was an upgrade based on the 2370s-era Sovereign-class flagship/heavy cruiser and its 2390s-era Noble-class assault cruiser variant. Like the Sovereign class was named for the sovereign head of state, the new assault cruiser was named for a regent.
The prototype Regent had entered service by the time of the Federation-Klingon War of 2405-2410. Its hull design was a more futuristic take compared to its sister classes, the angular, more militaristic-looking Imperial-class, and the streamlined Majestic-class. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")
In June 2407, the Regent and the USS Bellerophon-A were part of the Starfleet contingent engaging Klingon forces in the Laurentian system. The Regent maneuvered out of the range of a Vor'cha-class battlecruiser while firing its phasers at Klingon Defense Force targets. (STO Issue 11: "USS Avenger")
Khitomer Alliance flag officer in, or aligned with, Starfleet, deployed Regent for missions around the galaxy's four quadrants as part of the four-quadrant strategy. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock", admiralty system)
Following the Battle of Excalbia on stardate 84999.22 in January 2411, which saw the prominent involvement of hero ships from the Federation's past and present, the Regent was among the assault cruisers that received a refit to legendary starship qualifications.

The Regent was upgraded to a tier 6 legendary miracle worker assault cruiser, matching the qualifications of the new Sovereign-class refit variant, premiered with the USS Sovereign. (STO website: Legendary Miracle Worker Assault Cruiser)
