Based on technical modifications made to the Galaxy class U.S.S. Enterprise-D by Geordi La Forge and Data, the Legendary Command Exploration Cruiser can venture into uncharted space alone or lead a squadron of Starfleet ships into action. This vessel represents Starfleet's commitment to discovery, communication, and mutual defense.
The Legendary Command Exploration Cruiser includes a brand-new visual variant: the Ross-Class Exploration Cruiser. This ship, commissioned in the 2380s, is a hybrid of the Galaxy and Sovereign-class aesthetic. Featured in the recently-launched Star Trek Adventures roleplaying show "Clear Skies," the U.S.S. Ross pioneers many advanced technology that will go on to become standard on Starfleet ships in the 25th century.

Starfleet's top-of-the-line vessel in the mid-24th century, the most prominent Exploration Cruiser variant is the Galaxy class, which was the flagship of the fleet when it was first introduced in the late 2350s. The most well known Galaxy-class vessel was the USS Enterprise-D, commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard. This is the shortest Exploration Cruiser variant, but the best known.
On T5 and T6 variants, players may also select the "Galaxy Refit" nacelles, which have phaser strips on the dorsal side like on the Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser and the first appearance of the U.S.S. Venture.

The design of the Celestial class has components reminiscent of the Ambassador class line of Starfleet cruisers. Distinguishing differences between the Celestial- and Ambassador-class designs are the straight pylons, conical warp nacelles and engineering hull, and the thicker saucer.

The Envoy variant is the longest of the three. The saucer and and neck are also the largest. The pylons are slightly banked and are forked toward the nacelle area. The ship is significantly bulkier than the other variants which feature smooth hulls. Its nacelles are less armored than the others with a field grille covering the bottom end of the nacelle.

Though similar in layout to the Galaxy, the Monarch class takes on harder edges, banked nacelles, and other structural changes throughout the spaceframe, incorporating lessons learned from its older siblings' 50 years of service. It is also tied with the Venture Class for the largest variant of the Exploration Cruiser line.

Based on the Galaxy-class design, the Venture class represents the pinnacle in Starship design. It has a longer more swept neck, and a more faceted main deflector. It also bears details reminiscent of the Sovereign class, such as the raised V-shaped platform on the primary hull detail, and a whiter-colored hull with darker markings. It is also tied with the Monarch class for the largest Exploration Cruiser variant.

Following the success of the Pathfinder class in Operation Delta Rising, Starfleet Corps of Engineers teams at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards began work on updates of other core ship designs in the Federation fleet. The Andromeda-class Exploration Cruiser is the first ship from this effort to be released to Starfleet captains. An update of the famed Galaxy class that was the flagship of Starfleet in the mid-24th century, the Andromeda incorporates updated technology developed to give this ship improved capabilities for the difficult challenges Starfleet faces in the months ahead.
