Design History

First commissioned in 2364, the explorers of the Andromeda Class were the precursors to the Intrepid Class in many ways. They have served with distinction on the Federation's frontiers for the past decade.

There was a recent attempt at an Intrepid-style refit of this class; along with an altered hull color scheme, the prototype featured variable-geometry warp nacelles - each shorter engine containing fewer (but more advanced) warp coils. As was found with the retrofitted Excelsior Class starship U.S.S. Lakota, performance was greatly improved, but was prohibitively expensive - it would use more resources to retrofit a good number of Andromeda Class starships than it would to create the same number of Intrepid Classes, already in production.
