The Sovereign-class is a type of Federation starship, currently employed by Starfleet.


The Sovereign-class Development Project began at the Antares III Shipyards in 2365.


Shortly after the failed tests of the Defiant-class, the Federation resolved to build a larger, more reliable ship.

The Sovereign began life as an anti-Borg warship. The ship was given regenerative shielding, new burst phaser arrays, and quantum torpedoes.

The prototype, U.S.S. Sovereign, was launched in 2369, however, a largely-unsuccessful shakedown cruise had the ship in mothballs until the Dominion War.
