As of 2373, this class of Federation starship was the most advanced type of vessel in the fleet. Sovereign-class ships are 24 decks thick and almost 700 meters in length.
The Sovereign-class introduced the quantum torpedo as the Federation's latest advancement in tactical weapons.
The class's streamlined design, use of ventral shielding, and overall presence are arguably reasons why this class is that of the Federation's flagship.
