Missing Starship Class

I'm looking for a source of information on the Polaris class starships. I know they exist,i have a ship class chart that shows a profile of the first one, USS Polaris. I have read about one in a book series (don't remember which one) that went by the name USS Solaris. There was also a fan based webisode series using this class of ship. I don't remeber the name of the webisode, but the ship was named the USS Justice.


Here is what i know of them. They are a saucer section with a single warp nacelle extending from the lower rear of the saucer section. They have an Built up area in the rear of the saucer section to make for the engine room and a small shuttle bay. They came into service in the ST-TMP time era. They were designed to preform as a Scout/Patrol vessel. I know that at least 2 ships patroled the Romulan borders. The book series had some information about them serveing all kinds of fuctions, from transports to frieghters. In the ST-TNG after the fleet numbers had taking a hit from Wolf 359 and the Dominion War, the surviving ships in mothball were pressed back into service as frieghters and troop transports. Three of the ships were upgraded into fast attack ships. A torpdeo laucher was added to all the ships at the nacelle support. The launcher had a single tube both could fire fore and aft.


I know that in the ST-TMP era, they had a maxium sustainable speed of warp 7.47, very good shields, and sport the pulse phaser type weapons, as seen in ST-TWoK. I think the engines had been improved when they returned to service. As the fleet numbers returned to normal, the ships were returned to mothballs. A fan-book series i read, one of non-improved ones had been bought and was being used as a smugler ship.


If anyone can help with more info i would be greatful. I'm looking for any techincal info concering this class as it pertains the ST-TNG time era. Also i'm looking for other info such as crew compliment, and shuttle numbers. 


I'm writing a book which includes this class ship as the main ship. Thanks for help. If anyone else has questions about ship classes they can't find, please feel free to post your questions.

Never heard of the names you are mentioning but there were ships matching that desciption in Wolf 359 made of Galaxy class parts, it was the Freedom and Challenger classes.
