The Pioneer entered service at some point before the year 2270. The Pioneer was the prototype of the Pioneer-class and designed to undertake missions usually carried out by larger vessels but for shorter durations due to the frigate's limited crew complement and size. Still, the Pioneer and its sister ships were often found on the Klingon and Romulan frontlines. (STO video game: Agents of Yesterday)
