Notes

With the Akira and Steamrunner design projects well under way by by the late 2340's, Starfleet felt that it had cured the problems of fleet wide obsolescence and combat deficiency that had faced it. Starfleet Command now turned its attention to the other arenas. The Akira, Steamrunner and Saber classes had been rather more combat oriented than the average Starfleet design; concentrating on these vessels had left a gap in the more important areas of Science and Diplomacy. In 2353 Starfleet requested a new class of Starship to complement the Akira and Steamrunner classes. This new 'Norway' class was to have a 50% reduction in armament to allow two extra science labs, a set of ambassadorial quarters and a large conference hall complex to be inserted. This would allow the Norway to host multi-party talks and scientific conferences on a significantly larger scale than its counterparts could manage.

Development of the Norway class went relatively smoothly, with the prototype launched in 2360 and series production begun later that year. The ships have a single hull of triangular profile, with the two nacelles supported on struts which project aft. In most respects the design is unexceptional; lagging slightly behind the cutting edge represented by the Akira, Steamrunner and Saber classes, the designers generally chose reliability and low maintenance over performance. The ships have proved very popular in service, largely because of the good accommodation standards. Norway's have served with great distinction throughout the Federation, playing host to countless functions and events.

Comments

The Norway is a tough on to call - after writing pages for the Akira, Steamrunner and Saber classes, there wasn't much I could think of to say about yet another new design. I settled on saying that where the others where balanced a little more toward combat, the Norway was based more around the diplomacy side of things. Very little of the Norway entry is canon because we know virtually nothing about these ships - that I know of we haven't seen a single Norway class since 'First Contact'. I'm open to suggestions or comments about these ships.
