Overview[edit | edit source]

In 2221, when ships of this class first entered service, the Walker-class Prototype Light Exploration Cruiser was considered to be one of the powerhouses leading the Federation into the future, designed to be effective in as wide a variety of missions as Starfleet needs.

However, by the beginning of the Federation-Klingon War, only a small number of Walker-class starships were still in active service, while the majority of them had already been decommissioned. With the sudden escalation of full scale war with the Klingon Empire, the Admiralty began evaluating all of its mothballed hulls to determine how quickly they could be readied for active service. At the top of the list to be re-activated were the existing reserve of Walker-class starships.

Per Admiral Cornwell's instructions, these ships have been offered to junior officers ready for their first command.
