  • Medium cruiser
  • History
    • Initial CID prototype design begins: 2120, USS Daedalus (ENT Novel: Daedalus)
      • Launched 2140
    • General success of spaceframe results in M/AM retrofit
      • Design begins 2141
      • Registry block 151-179 reserved 2141
    • Begins general production: 2144, USS Masao
      • Launched 2144
    • Success of class leads to continuation of construction beyond initial production run, second block 210-239 reserved 2153
      • Production accelerated December 2155 for Earth-Romulan War, block expanded to 210-269 (ENT Novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)
    • Due to Earth-Romulan War, refit design begins 2156 using NX-class technology
      • Existing ships to undergo accelerated 90 day refit as feasible, all new vessels to be built under new design specifications
      • Accelerated production run and reassignment of resources from NX/Intrepid production increases rate of production from 5/year to 10/year, over 3x NX production speed
        • Three-plus times quicker production cycle by Beneath the Raptor's Wing
    • Production halts 2160 following cessation of Earth-Romulan War, initial technology exchanges and fleet rearrangements leading up to founding of Federation
    • Second refit begins 2161 to incorporate non-Human technology as part of fleet-wide refit project for all existing Earth Starfleet vessels as part of Starfleet incorporation
    • Retirement: 2196 (TNG: "Power Play")
      • Due to aging systems and spaceframes no longer compatible with advancing technology, all active vessels removed from service
      • USS Benjamin Franklin stripped of sensitive technology and warp drive, remanded to Starfleet Academy for use as Sol-system training vessel
    • Due to lack of materiel, on request by Starfleet Corps of Engineers for SCE-dedicated starships, provisional reactivation of three vessels 2264 authorized
