Attempted to take the larger size of the Ambassador Class and make it more efficient. The saucer was dramatically widened but made elliptical to increase efficiency. The neck was smoothed into the engineering hull rather then just a vertical connection, this made it more streamlined and larger and more strong. The engineering hull was flattened and widened to keep the same amount of internal volume in a more streamlined shape. The overall result was the most volume ever incorporated into a Starfleet vessel in a reasonably efficient package. This made the Galaxy Class into one of Starfleet's most sucessful designs, though prohibitevely expensive to build in terms of rescources.

History Edit

The Galaxy Class first began developed in the 2340s to make a new standard of excellence in the fleet.
Numerous technologies implemented on Galaxy-class starships were tested aboard earlier prototype vessels, including the Oberth Class USS Pegasus in the 2350s.

The warp core was designed at Outpost Seran-T-one on stardate 40052 by some of the most brilliant engineering minds in the Federation, including Leah Brahms of the Theoretical Propulsion Group.

Upon its launch, the Galaxy-class became the most technologically sophisticated and complicated ship ever built by the Federation.

The great size and capability of Galaxy-class starships made them extremely prestigious assignments, attracting Starfleet's best and brightest.

They were noted for their impressive abilities among Federation citizens and other Alpha Quadrant races. The Galaxy-class was unique among Starfleet vessel designs in assuming a large civilian population; many personnel brought their families aboard.

In 2365, the safety of the Galaxy-class, in particular its warp propulsion system, came into question when the USS Yamato was lost in a mysterious accident near the Romulan Neutral Zone. The ship had experienced massive systems-wide failures which eventually led to a loss of antimatter containment. Further investigation by the Enterprise-D revealed the malfunctions were as a result of an Iconian software transmission and not a design flaw inherent to the ship.

Undoubtedly the most prominent early Galaxy-class starship was the USS Enterprise D, which apart from two brief periods under the command of William T. Riker and Edward Jellico was commanded for its entire nine year career by Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Enterprise made first contact with a multitude of new species, including the Q Continuum, the Ferengi Alliance and the Borg Collective. Its diplomatic efforts helped cool tensions between smaller, regional powers and prevent dramatic upheavals to the security of the Federation during the Klingon Civil War, and frequently checked Romulan and Cardassian operations in tense situations. It fought off some of the Federation's toughest foes, preventing the assimilation of Earth during the Borg invasion of 2367. 

A Galaxy-class ship was involved in the disastrous first contact with the Dominion. The USS Odyssey had entered the Gamma Quadrant in order to rescue several Federation citizens who had been taken captive by the Jem'Hadar. While the Odyssey was retreating, a Dominion Attack Ship made a suicide run at its stardrive section, causing a massive hull breach and the complete destruction of the ship.

This unwarranted act led to three years of hostilities between the Federation and the Dominion, before the outbreak of the Dominion War.

In 2371, the USS Enterprise D was destroyed in orbit of Veridian III by the Duras Sisters. No one wask killed in the battle as everyone escaped in the primary hull.

In 2372, the USS Venture led a task force to Deep Space Nine as reinforcements when the Klingon Empire attacked the station.

Galaxy-class starships saw action in many of the major fleet actions of the war, including Operation Return, where the class also played a major strategic role, grouped into Galaxy wings, the first Chin'toka Advance,  and the Advance on Cardassia. Several more starships entered the fleet inventory during the 2370s. By the latter half of the decade, Galaxy-class ships were seen all around Federation space, from stations near Earth to near the Romulan Neutral Zone

In 2377, there were seven Galaxy Class ships present when USS Voyager returned home from the Delta Quadrant.

In 2379, the USS Galaxy was part of Battle Group Omega in Sector 1045.

In 2381, the USS Amargosa was destroyed by the Borg. In April, the USS Venture was given a massive refit and overhaul to make it more capable of dealing with new threats posed by the Typhon Pact.
