|The Intrepid Class was designed in the 2360's as a means to diversify a Federation fleet that
had become predominantly larger, multi-purpose vessels. While powerful, these larger
classes, such as the Galaxy and Excelsior class starships, took a great deal of resources to
construct; therefore, fewer vessels were constructed, a situation that consequently
limited the number of starships available for deployment. The Intrepid class was designed
specifically to help rectify the situation.
Primarily a science vessel, the Intrepid class was designed with some of the most advanced
technology available to Starfleet, including bio-neural gel pack circuitry for more efficient
computer processing, and an enhanced warp core that enabled to class to travel in excess
of warp five without damage to subspace (a considerable concern at the time). The
Intrepid class was also designed to land on planetary surfaces in the event of an
Though limited in its tactical capabilities, the Intrepid class was often deployed as a scout
ship during the Dominion and Elorg Wars because of its speed and maneuverability, and
worked to support larger, more powerful vessels during fleet engagements.
The Intrepid class continues to serve in its role as a science vessel into the 25th century.
