Galaxy Class Heavy Cruiser Built 2360 to 2377 -- Still in use.

The Galaxy is considered the Queen of the Fleet for 2364. The best of the best. This class was chosen for the fifth "USS Enterprise the NCC-1701-D"

The Galaxy was step above anything Starfleet had yet built. It defined new standards in everything from endurance to crew comfort. The Galaxy was the luxury cruise of the fleet. It was intended to do the five year mission better and more thoroughly than any ship before.

The Galaxy fleet was assigned to Galaxy Exploration Command (GXC). They are classed as heavy cruisers setting a new standard within that classification. They were mainly preceded by the Ambassador class and replaced by the Odessey Class and the Dolphin class.

There is a "Galaxy Problem "

Block IEdit

Hailed as the new age of Federation Starships the first Galaxy class ships were the showboat. However they were not without flaws. Block I ships had a serious deficiency in the warp core control system that was responsible for at least one of the first run ships being destroyed. The USS Yamato was lost with all hands right in front of the USS Enterprise D.

DiSodium RefitEdit

GalaxyDS

Galaxy Class diSodium refit

The introduction of diSodium drives in 2377 was the end of the new construction for the Galaxy class. Beautiful swan necks were out. The amazing increase in speed was in. Thanks in part to Admiral Jay P. Hailey a refit for the existing Galaxy class ships was designed and implemented.

The neck was cut out taking 10 decks out of the ship. But not a very vital ten decks. The deflector was redesigned and the forward torpedo tube was lost. It was replaced by octoclopes turrets of Ane design port and starboard. Not everyone likes this addition.

The existing fleet of Galaxy class ships can continue to serve into the 24th century.
