The Federation Vesta-class starship is a set of starship classes in service from 2380 onwards. They are Starfleet's set of Multi-Mission Explorers.

Since 2380 these ships have more than proven themselves in combat and exploration alike. One notable vessel is the U.S.S. Aventine which served as a test bed for future ship advancements such as the Quantum Slipstream Drive.

See the template to the right for a list of playable starships and NPC mobs in Star Trek Online based on the Vesta. Most ships parts from the design variants are interchangeable where the relevant ship has been bought.

Design[]

The Vesta class was designed by Mark Rademaker for the U.S.S. Aventine in the Star Trek: Destiny novels. Rademaker is also the origin of the Aventine variant (based on his concept for Star Trek: Voyager: Full Circle Esquiline & Quirinal) and the Rademaker (based on his Aventine MKII prototype design). The Brigid variant appears to be based on an early study model built during pre-production of Star Trek: Voyager.
