Notes

The Saladin class was introduced as a destroyer counterpart to the Constitution class heavy cruisers entering service in the mid 2240's. Externally their relationship to their larger cousins is obvious; both the saucer section and nacelle are identical to that of the Constitution, although the configuration could hardly be more different. The Saladin is one of the relatively few starfleet designs to employ a single nacelle configuration,4 it being considered that ease of construction outweighed the warp field efficiency penalties inherent in this layout.

Like the Constitutions the armament of the Saladin was initially composed of laser cannon, but these were replaced in the 2260's with phasers and photon torpedoes. When the duotronic computer was invented by Dr Daystrom in 22435 Starfleet had wanted to incorporate this technology, but in the event it was decided that the new computers were not yet sufficiently tested for Starfleet use, and the first batch of twenty vessels were launched with monotronic systems. Once Starfleet had tested out the Duotronic technology in the Constitution class it was adopted for all further ships, and the first Saladins were equipped with the system in their first round of Standard level refits beginning in 2250.

The Saladins proved to be popular and reliable designs, although some problems were experienced with warp field geometry due to Starfleets relative inexperience with single nacelled vessels. In the 2270's some thought was given to refitting these vessels alongside the Constitutions, but in the event it was decided to produce the Polaris class as new build vessels instead. The Saladins began to take a back seat after 2280 as the Polaris class became available in larger numbers; the first ships began retirement in 2305, but later ships of the class continued in service as late as 2320.

Comments

Another ship from the TOS Technical Manual, the Saladin has never been mentioned in any episode or novel that I am aware of. All information therefore comes from the one source, combined with my usual speculations to explain and/or support the official information.
