Ships of the Starfleet

Surya Class Cruiser (2242)
In Naval Construction Contract Order

SUB CLASSES - Direct Upgrades:

The Surya Class of cruisers is the second-most notable starship frame design of Starfleet's history. Its design was inspired by the Ptolemy Class, but was greatly enhanced. The Ptolemy Class followed the Surya's technological and design lead henceforth. This class has been refit and recommissionned many times over, into various roles, and variants. The basic Surya frame can even be distinguised in its most recent descendant, the Nebula class, more than a century later. More than the original Constitution frame, this ship design has endured and withstood the test of time. Here are the various classes, refits and incarnations of the Surya Class:

2287/06 Joshua Paul Class NCC-1830...NCC-1890 Mk.IX
2295  Miranda Class Research Cruiser Mk.X
2338 Centaur Class Cruiser Mk.XI

SPIN OFF CLASSES:

The Surya design was such a revolutionary take-off from the established Constitution design, and extreemly efficient at it, that it influenced many other classes through its evolution. Many of these classes started out as a slight modification on the basic design, others took off in more dramatic directions. Below are listed these many new classes, along with their own sub-classes:
