Introduced in the 2370s, the Sovereign class was first battle-tested in the Battle of Sector 001 in 2373.
Smaller than the earlier Galaxy Class, Sovereigns boast improved technology and weapons but less room for civilian personnel and family quarters. Expanded engineering facilities allow the Sovereign to supply power to other ships or boost its tractor beams to hold an opponent in place for improved targeting.
