Arcadia-class light cruiser

Designed in the late 2270’s as the light coun­ter­part to the Chal­lenger- and Enter­prise-class heavy cruis­ers, the Arca­dia had an extend­ed devel­op­ment peri­od due to con­stant­ly chang­ing require­ments. As a direct suc­ces­sor to the suc­cess­ful Sen­tinel-class, the class was intend­ed for extend­ed armed patrols along the Klin­gon and Romu­lan Neu­tral Zones, but the Khit­o­mer Peace Accords have freed them up for explo­ration and sur­vey.

Fast and ver­sa­tile, it’s capa­ble of being refit­ted for mul­ti­ple mis­sion pro­files, although it tends to default to pathfind­er and secu­ri­ty oper­a­tions. Like its pre­de­ces­sor, the design uses much of the same design ele­ments as its flag-car­ry­ing coun­ter­parts, although the tech­nol­o­gy has tak­en anoth­er leap for­ward.
