For other uses, see Andromeda.

The Andromeda-class was a type of exploration cruiser fielded by the Federation Starfleet beginning in 2410. It was an advanced variant of the venerable Galaxy-class of the mid-24th century. (STO video game: Delta Rising)

HistoryEdit

With the Andromeda-class the Starfleet Corps of Engineers meant to duplicate the success of the earlier Pathfinder-class update to the Intrepid-class hull plan. Designed and built at Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards, the Andromeda-class featured improved capabilities over even retrofitted Galaxy-class vessels.

The systems updates developed for the Andromeda-class were later reused in the Yamato-class dreadnought cruiser, a variant of the Galaxy X-class. (STO video game: Delta Rising)
