Design History

The Korolev Class is a widely-used, yet seldom-seen starship. Production was in full swing in 2350, as a smaller counterpart to the already aging Ambassador Class. A number of Korolevs saw their operational lives abruptly terminated in the Borg incursion of 2367, at the Battle of Wolf 359. Though most have been refit, and can more than hold their own, recent years have seen them largely assigned to the Federation's territory in Beta Quadrant.
