The Frontier class was Starfleets most advanced starship class at the time of its development.
Designed as a fast heavily armed exploration vessel, the Frontier class was used for long term deep-space missions into mostly unknown territories like the Delta and Beta Quadrant. It is powered by Starfleets first experimental Transition Drive, a propulsion system based on the Quantum slipstream drive.
Heavily influenced by the Dominion War the Frontier class carries very advanced weaponry and defenses. Its scientific technology is still mostly similar to earlier 24th century starships, though it contained several upgrades in various systems acquired from Starfleets previous incursions into the Delta Quadrant.
