« Back to Specs


First used by Starfleet as a science ship and scout vessel in the late 23rd century, the Oberth class was phased out of service before the Dominion War. Recent improvements in modular ship construction and shield design have made the ship design viable. It carries a crew of 80. The Oberth class is a very common science vessel design that is used by Starfleet as well as other Federation institutions. Although its first construction dates back at least as long as the Excelsior class, many ships of this class are still in service.
