The Cheyenne-class was a type of Federation starship in use by Starfleet in the 24th century. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia)

HistoryEdit

The Cheyenne-class was a 24th century design of light cruiser, consisting of a saucer section derived from the Galaxy-class project with four warp nacelles attached by branching pylons to the aft saucer.

One of the more famous ships of this class was the USS Ahwahnee, which was lost at the Battle of Wolf 359. (TNG episode: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II")

In the 25th century, the Cheyenne-class would continue in Starfleet service as a modernized heavy cruiser, generally commanded by an officer with the rank of commander. By this time the Cheyenne, like it's parent design, had been the basis for several other starships. most notably the Dakota-class and the Stargazer-class. (STO video game: Star Trek Online)

BackgroundEdit

The Ahwahnee model was built for the battle sequence in "The Best of Both Worlds" and later described to Star Trek fans by Michael Okuda's appearances at conventions, where he showed slides with images of the behind-the-scenes models.

ApocryphaEdit

The ebook The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon, published by Last Unicorn Games after they had lost their Star Trek license lists the USS Periyar and USS Utrecht as Challenger-class vessels. LUG's Ship Recognition Manual also lists the USS Paiute and USS Haida.
