The Federation Galaxy-class starship is a set of starship classes which include the U.S.S. Enterprise-D as its most famous craft. The Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser (informally known as the Galaxy-X) is a refit of the Enterprise-D from an alternate future.

See the template to the right for a list of playable starships and NPC mobs in Star Trek Online based on the Galaxy and the Galaxy-X. Most have interchangable parts within the two groups.

Galaxy-class variants

Class Information
Federation Exploration Cruiser (Galaxy).png
Galaxy class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Galaxy patch.png

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.

Federation Exploration Cruiser (Celestial).png
Celestial class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free, but only available on T4 variants
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.
Federation Exploration Cruiser (Envoy).png
Envoy class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free, but only available on T4 variants
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.
Federation Exploration Cruiser (Monarch).png
Monarch class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free with any T5 or T6 variant
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.

or the Ross Legendary Command Exploration Cruiser, 30,000 Zen small icon.png

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.
Federation Exploration Cruiser (Andromeda).png
Andromeda class

Andromeda class development patch.png

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.
Federation Exploration Cruiser (Ross).png
Ross class
SKIN UNLOCK: Ross Legendary Command Exploration Cruiser, 30,000 Zen small icon.png
The Ross-class Exploration Cruiser, commissioned in the 2380s, is a hybrid of the Galaxy and Sovereign classes' aesthetics. 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.

Galaxy-class dreadnought variants

Class Information
Federation Dreadnought Cruiser.png
Galaxy class
Refit
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Galaxy class was refitted at the turn of the 25th century, after the collapse of the Khitomer Accords in 2399. In response to increased hostility with the Klingon Empire, the newly redesigned ship carries a cloaking device and a devastating spinal lance weapon.

The ship class first appeared as an alternate reality version of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D from the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "All Good Things...".

Galaxy class Beta
Refit
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
An alternative version of the Galaxy class' refit that features none of the aesthetic differences with the Exploration Cruiser, with the exception of the spinal lance, the third nacelle, and the split main impulse engine.

The Galaxy Beta ship parts must be selected manually through Ship Customization and are not part of a starship preset.

This refit of the Venture class shares the sleeker lines of more modern classes such as the Sovereign.

Yamato class
SKIN UNLOCK: Yamato Dreadnought Cruiser, 3000 Zen small icon.png
The Yamato-class Dreadnought Cruiser was built for battle with the Federation's current enemies in mind. It was heavily influenced by the advances made in the Andromeda-class Exploration Cruiser's design and has incorporated its state of the art systems to create a truly formidable starship.
