A Multi-Role Vessel, the STARCHILD Class starship was designed as a replacement for the ageing EXCELSIOR class ships. Design concepts began early 2398, following the same basic hull design concepts with upgraded systems and a different saucer section, the STARCHILD began
service in 2400. Since then the retiring of the EXCELSIOR and the integration of the STARCHILD has taken full effect.

A versatile ship, the STARCHILD can serve anything from diplomatic envoy to front line battle duty. Low construction costs, and design flexibility have made the STARCHILD Class the backbone of the
Federation's Starfleet.

The STARCHILD was designed to last, and ten years on vessels are still being made as the primary stock of Starfleet's Fleets.

The names for the Starchild Class Vessels are picked from previous Starfleet vessels. The Naval Construction Codes from the Starchild Class Vessels follow the form NCC-200xxx.
