Renaissance Class Starship
The Renaissance Class was developed around 2310 as a replacement for the retired Constitutions, when it was found that the recent Excelsiors were perhaps too large for some tasks - this was a project which ambitiously incorporated all the latest experimental technology Starfleet had been preparing for the last several years.   Though there were some problems at first, integrating all of the new technoloy was not as difficult as many had expected.   This starship paved the way for the later Ambassador and Korolev Classes, and quite a few are still in service today, having undergone extensive refitting.
