The Einstein-class was a type of Federation starship used in the early 23rd century. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years)

HistoryEdit

The Einstein-class entered service around 2174.

By 2196, the Daedalus-class of ships was retired and replaced by the Einstein- and Baton Rouge-classes. For the next three decades, these ships were crewed with Starfleet's best and brightest. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years)

Sometime around 2223, the USS Gates was forced to return to Starbase 9 from a scientific study to receive minor repairs. Robert April thought that the design lacked in self-sufficiency, which he sought to rectify by designing the Constitution-class. Until that project, no known ship had been able to break the Warp 7 barrier. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years)

This class is similar in design to many 23rd century scout class starships, with a saucer-shaped primary hull and a single warp nacelle. A difference is the secondary hull that most scout vessels lack. One such vessel, the starship USS Kelvin was still in operational service by 2233. (TOS movie & novelization: Star Trek)

In the alternate reality, starship classes such as the Armstrong-type, Mayflower-type, and the Newton-type were based on the same design lineage. (TOS movie: Star Trek)

Ships of the classEdit

There may have been a prototype USS Einstein which the class was named after, however no such ship is known.
