THE SHIPS OF

UNITED EARTH
STARFLEET

YORKTOWN class

Starfleet's first and only "battleship", the Yorktowns began construction in secret at the Ganymede Yards in the wake of the Xindi assault on Earth in 2154. There were seven ships in the class and all were capable of warp 7. Major innovations included deflector screens, pulsed-phase cannons, and a point-defense and x-ray laser grid to thwart the Romulans' atomic munitions. The new duo-analog systems made the Yorktowns immune to Romulan stealth and telecapture technologies.
Notable Ships of the Line:
Yorktown, Missouri, Potemkin, Yamato, Constitution

NX class

NX-class starships served as the flagships for Starfleet Command's joint task forces throughout the Earth-Romulan War. By the end of the conflict, only two out of seven NX's had survived. The most famous NX-class ship, Enterprise, underwent a refit in 2159 after its near destruction at Galorndon Core. The NX refit reached warp 6 and its design inspired the short-lived Columbia-class, which was named after Enterprise's sister ship which was lost with all hands that same year.

Notable Ships of the Line:
Enterprise, Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Endeavour

DAEDALUS class

The Daedalus class had been a workhorse in the United Earth Space Probe Agency for nearly two decades before the war began, primarily delivering supplies and terraforming equipment to Earth colonies. Their simple, modular design allowed Earth to build them at nearly triple the speed of an NX class ship. After Alpha Centauri, nine Daedalus-class vessels were refit with IPBM tubes to deliver nuclear payloads.

Notable Ships of the Line:

Essex, Hornet, Tennessee, Wasp, Arizona, Archon

INTREPID class

Before the war, Intrepid-class light cruisers typically ran picket duty in the Sol system or were assigned to escort convoys on the Terra Nova or Tau Ceti routes. The outbreak of war brought much-needed upgrades to the ships' weapon packages, but by the end of the conflict, only three Intrepids had survived. While the class was retired in 2162, its legacy was honored with a relaunch in the late 24th century.

Notable Ships of the Line:
Intrepid, Pioneer, Sirius, Republic

FRANKLIN class

After breaking the Warp 4 barrier, the Franklins were manufactured exclusively for MACO's training and special operations divisions. When war broke out, the Franklins were conscripted for Starfleet service and designated as "courier ships" which carried troops, intelligence operatives, and field commanders. Due to their high-value passengers (including General Casey), the Franklins became the test bed for the new phase pulse cannons which were eventually perfected for use on the Yorktown battleships.

Notable Ships of the Line:

Franklin, Kennedy, Armstrong, Yeager, Copernicus

DELTA class

The Delta-class has the distinction of being the only Starfleet ship to serve in two wars. In addition to their role as an escort ship during the Romulan conflict, the Deltas first served during the Kzinti Wars when United Earth Starfleet Command was chartered. While unable to hit the higher warp speeds of the rest of the fleet, the Deltas are maneuverable and pack a punch.

Notable Ships of the Line:

Jupiter, Achilles, Thor, Hera, Perseus, Crusader

EINSTEIN class

Before the war, Einstein-class ships were science vessels running experiments or charting stellar phenomena. During wartime, the Einsteins ran escort duty on the Alpha Centauri and Deneva routes. The Einsteins were slow, easy targets for Romulan destroyers and Admiral Black reassigned them to deploy communication relays and as mobile field hospitals.

Notable Ships of the Line:

Einstein, Magellan, Hawking, Fontana, Kelvin

POSEIDON class

After the attack on Salem Station, when the Intrepid and Delta class ships were deployed to the front lines, the Poseidon Design Team had to quickly design a new class of ship for picket defense of the Sol System. A "kit bash" of components from other ships resulted in the Poseidon design which, while slow, was heavily armed with photonic torpedoes. Due to their limited speed (max wf 3.5), the Poseidons saw little action, though they did participate with Red Squadron on the attack of the Forge in the winter of 2157.

Notable Ships of the Line:

Ajax, Zeus, Poseidon, Coto, Athena, Miranda
