Design History

The Renaissance class is a compact multi-purpose ship developed to replace the Constitution class. A milestone in starship design, the prototype USS Renaissance incorporated only few components and design features of previous ship classes. The ship was commissioned in 2305. Several batches of Renaissance -class ships were produced until 2337. The last ship, the USS Hokkaido, was the only one delivered with ASRVs (autonomous survival and recovery vehicles), however, several ships of the newer batches were refitted in the 2360's, and ASRVs were added along with Type 8 phaser strips.
