The Bastion class was a Voth starship class, a flight-deck cruiser in service in the 24th and 25th centuries. (STO video game: Legacy of Romulus, VOY - Distant Shores short story: "Brief Candle")


The Flight-Deck Cruiser held heavy offensive firepower and defensive capabilities.[1] These Voth cruisers well-equipped craft were versatile and able to be used in any situation.[2] They were heavily armored vessels that had powerful shielding that made them near immune to damage done to them. For support, they also made use of Aceton Drones that sought out hostile targets nearby and drained energy from their systems whilst absorbing energy weapon fire. Following the sufficient accumulation of energy, the drones exploded with a burst of radiation that damaged close by enemies.[3]

Bastion Flight-Deck Cruisers were equipped with a fully functioning hangar bay that were able to launch fighters and support craft to aid in combat engagements.[4] They were quite able to field these Voth Heavy Fighters and commanding them.[5]

Early in the year 2376, a Bastion-class cruiser visited the Markonian outpost. A member of the Voth underground approached Lieutenant Commander Chakotay of the Federation starship USS Voyager to apprise him of the spread of the Distant Origin theory in Voth society. The separatist also provided the Human with information regarding the cruiser's flight plan so that Voyager could gain valuable knowledge about transwarp. Captain Kathryn Janeway agreed to the commander's plan on stardate 53508.8 When the cruiser arrived at a hot young B9 class giant star to open a transwarp conduit. Voyager dispatched its unique multispatial probe to gather telemetry. When the cruiser noticed the attempt, it triggered a coronal mass ejection that damaged Voyager and the probe. No transwarp data was gained during the operation. (VOY - Distant Shores short story: "Brief Candle")

These cruisers became the rank and file vessels of the Voth expeditionary forces in the 2400s decade.[6]

In 2409, the Allied forces of Dyson Joint Command encountered these vessels being deployed by the Voth at the Solonae Dyson Sphere. (STO video game: Legacy of Romulus)

In 2410, ships of this class were part of the Voth fleet dispatched to protect the Turei homeworld from an all-out attack by the Vaadwaur Supremacy. The Voth ships were barely match against the heavily upgraded Vaadwaur ships. (STO - "The Delta Quadrant" mission: "Revelations")
