Ships of the Starfleet

Centaur Class Cruiser (2338)
In Naval Construction Contract Order


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:
