Designed by Dr. Xin Ra-Havreii at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards on Mars, the Luna class was intended to exploit the Bajoran Wormhole and carry out exploration missions in the Gamma Quadrant. The Luna project was suspended for the duration of the Dominion war, but once the war was concluded and the Federation began to return to a peacetime basis, production of the ships was resumed. [1]

The Luna class ships were not heavily optimised for combat, but rather for long duration missions of peaceful exploration. The class were named for moons, with the first ships all named for moons in the Sol system. [1]

After the Borg invasion of 2381, President Bacco vowed that more Luna class ships would be built as a symbol of the Federation's commitment to exploration even in face of that disastrous conflict. [8]

The background of the Luna class is quite unique in Star Trek. The movie Star Trek : Nemesis established that the newly promoted Captain Riker was heading off to command the USS Titan, with Troi as his counselor and wife. When Pocket Books decided to bring out a series of novels based around Riker's adventures on the Titan, they held a fan competition to establish the design of the ship. Thus, what we see as the USS Titan was designed by competition winner Sean Tourangeau.
