History

The Allegiance Class starship is one of several designs developed by the Starfleet Corps of Engineers to serve as the next generation exploration platform and command vessel for the Federation’s Starfleet. The initial design briefings called for a large vessel - the largest starship ever to be produced by Starfleet at the time - designed to perform long term exploration assignments on behalf of Starfleet and also capable of providing a Federation presence in galactic hotspots during times of hardship. This varied design brief would result in starships of this class becoming one of Starfleet’s most prominent designs for the near future and one of the most important starships ever constructed by the United Federation of Planets.

In a military sense, the Allegiance Class starship is a somewhat impractical design since a smaller ship could fulfill the same mission duties just as effectively as the Allegiance could. Additionally, due to the size and nature of Allegiance’s mission, it would be a very difficult project to efficiently execute. Resource wise production of one ship of this class would require the same amount of materials needed to build an entire Task Group of Intrepid Class Light Cruisers and nearly double the crew compliment that would be needed for such a Task Group. Further, several separate drydock construction facilities would be needed to construct the massive Allegiance as, when completed, the vessel would be two and a half times the size of a Galaxy Class Starship and nearly 4 times stronger than the Federation’s Sovereign Class Explorer. The size and capabilities of the Allegiance were mainly driven by politics; as the flagship of the United Federation of Planets the Allegiance would represent the Federation on the galactic stage and would serve as physical proof of the Federation's capabilities, power, and resources to those it encountered.

It was also hoped that the sheer size of the ship would frighten potential opponents into a less hostile stance – similar to how the starships of the Romulan Star Empire utilized their frightening bulk to strike fear into the hearts of potential threats. Because of its importance to the morale of the Starfleet and the Federation itself, defense would also prove to be a paramount issue for this new vessel as well. The Allegiance Class Development Project would call upon the creation of the most advanced shielding and power systems ever produced for a mobile platform in Starfleet history (the systems would even have to prove better than those used on some frontline outposts). Complicating matters further, construction would have to be completed in absolute secrecy with many of the components only being brought together for final assembly to avoid potential risks to the costly ship.

Starfleet Engineering finally decided to scale down the Allegiance Class due to time constraints in building such a massive original design. The Allegiance Class Starships was designed to be a "hybrid", a combination of Galaxy Class and Sovereign Class technology which proved favourable as both vessels had proved themselves to the limit, over and over again.
