The Sagan-subclass was a Federation class V research vessel starship, a variation of the Oberth-class scout, in Starfleet service in the 24th century, becoming active on reference stardate 2/8502. These vessels were produced until stardate 2/9608.

The Sagan vessels crewed 80, with space to carry 10 mission specialists. Additionally, the Sagan could carry 5,000 metric tons of cargo, rated at 100 SCU (standard cargo units). Unloaded, the Sagan vessels weighed 59,335 metric tons and measured 180 meters in length, 105 meters in width and 62 meters in height.

The Sagan computers were of the M-1 type, and the vessels were loaded with two standard (6 person) personnel transporters, five 12 person transporters and four cargo transport stages (2 of them small scale, 2 of them large scale). There were also 4 Federation shuttlecraft standard to these vessels' shuttlebays. These vessels were designed for deep-space scientific research, intended to represent an improvement over the earlier Gagarin-subclass series of Oberth research scouts, with better defenses and power levels. The Sagan ships were equipped to perform studies on various subjects, such as planetary cartography and geology, biological surveys, and studies of astronomy.

The Sagan warp engines were FWB-2 type, rated to cruise at warp factor 8 and max out at warp factor 9 (old scale measurement). The impulse engines were of the FIB-3 type, and Sagan had 3 FH-8 phaser emitters, in three phaser banks, with arcs of fire to fore and aft as well as port and starboard. The vessels had no launcher weapons, but were defended by FSF model deflector shields.

By the last half of the 24th century, the Sagan was still in service, with 17 vessels having been built between stardates 2/8502 and 2/9608. By 2364, three vessels were lost. (FASA RPG modules: Basic Rulebook, Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual; Last Unicorn RPG module: Star Trek: The Next Generation Player's Guide)

The class was likely named after the twentieth century astronomer, Carl Sagan, who took the idea of extraterrestrial life very seriously.
