Intro Text

General Overview

The Sentinel class vessel is the next generation in border patrolling starships. The project began in 2375, following the end of the Dominion war. Preparations to rebuild the Federation Starfleet called for new vessel designs to replace the older starships that served in the war and although production of the larger classes was a slow process, work on the smaller vessels progressed smoothly. Classes such as the Miranda, Excelsior and Centaur had served long past their service life estimations and it was finally time to decommission the last of these vessels and replace them with newer, more advanced designs.

The Miranda class had primarily earned its prestige as a border patrol vessel and Starfleet felt that such an important role needed to be filled quickly and efficiently. A tech team at Utopia Planitia had been working on the Guardian class for some time, taking design elements from classes such as the Nova, Defiant, Sovereign and Intrepid.

It's compact design, weapons payload, sensor packages and propulsion systems made it an obvious successor to the Miranda class, while it also complimented such classes as the Defiant and Prometheus as primary choices for escort/combat duties.
