The Fearless-class Heavy Cruiser wasa Star Fleet starship class, of heavy cruiser type in operation until 2413, at which time it was merged with the Avenger Battle Cruiser class to become the Avenger Heavy Cruiser class of star ship.

History

Since the first vessel left Earth hundreds of years before, Star Fleet has always prided itself on its versatility. When the General War ended, a ship was required to fulfill the roles left empty with the departure of the Sovereign and Galaxy classes. At first, the Star Fleet Corps of Engineers had trouble designing a ship that could function both as a science vessel and a warship – that was, until they found the plans of a proposed design evolution of the Sovereign that had been dismissed by bureaucratic officials over ten years previously. The hull structure was sturdy enough to take the brunt of an attack and survive, and the ship was large enough to keep a crew and supplies aboard for the many months needed to complete a research project in deep-space. Best of all, the design was modular – parts were interchangeable and the ship could function either as a heavy cruiser, or a science ship. There was just one snag: the parts couldn’t be in place at the same time…

The plans went ahead anyway. The first cruiser off the line was the USS Fearless, CA-1000. Heavily armed and armoured, she was also surprisingly fast and performed exceptionally well in mock battles against other vessels. Satisfied with the results, Star Fleet Command approved the design and the class went into full production. Seeing heavy combat during the Romulan War and subsequent Borg Invasion, the Fearless-class proved that warships of this class were needed if Star Fleet was to survive.
