One of several "blue" Dolphins serving in the Federation Starfleet and painted in Starfleet colors.The Abraham Dannon serves as the flagship of the Far sector under Rear Admiral Li'ira O'Keefe and Captain Cinilan. She is a replacement for the Ambassador class USS Abraham Dannon NCC-11000
The latest and greatest. The Dolphin is the first class of disodium heavy cruisers. The Dolphins are 36 decks deep with a hull as wide as it is long.The Dolphins are built with the latest advances in technology and comfort. They can carry 1000 beings in comfort to the most dangerous places in the Galaxy and bring them back. This class is considered a general replacement for the Planet class cruisers. A good idea that was simply too expensive. Also unlike the Manta class the Dolphin has the bridge on deck one. A design concession to Admiral Hailey. However the bridge module is built flush with the hull.
The Dolphin class is build with two major power systems. It can be built with either the DiSodium HE warp drive (Blue Dolphin) shown, which is preferred by the Horned Fleet, or in a standard disodium system (Fleet Dolphin) favored by Starfleet. Performance curves are similar for both systems.

The USS Abraham Dannon ios named for Abraham Tacitus Dannon -- The Sighted Man of Peace. It is the second Starship of that name.
Abraham Dannon is revered today as the Federation's most honored statesman, though he was hated and despised as an appeaser in his own time. His work on the structure of the Federation council and the Federation Presidency is nearly forgotten.
Dannon is remembered as the architect of the Federation's treaty with the Romulan Star Empire, which brought an end to that long and bloody conflict. His treaty efforts were hampered by the desire of many council members to extract vengeance on the Romulans for the many Federation lives lost during that conflict. Realizing that a series of harsh treaty conditions would prolong the war, Dannon delivered his "Sighted Man of Peace" speech. This now famous speech convinced the Council members to soften their conditions, which included surrender of previously held Romulan systems, to bring about a much needed peace.
Though Dannon's efforts were eventually successful, he never lived to see their fruits. A dissident Andorian assassinated him four years after the ratification of the treaty bearing his name.
For over 100 years no ship was named Dannon because of his controversial stand on the Romulan War. Old political foes and hawkish officers in Starfleet blocked any attempt to name a ship for him. For a while after they had died off inertia held sway.
Finally with the introduction of the Ambassador class there was planned a ship for each of the six founders. Falan declined the honor as she didn't feel it appropriate to name a ship for a living person, and one "so little involved" as she put it. However the other five revered Founders each got a namesake vessel, Abraham Dannon for the first time.
