The Centaur type class is an early 24th century design consisting of an Excelsior class saucer section with warp nacelles mounted on the primary hull with a weapons pod. The Centaur’s primary role was as a fast attack ship with excellent manoeuvrability when relieved of the bulk of the Excelsior’s secondary hull. These ships are generally no longer in service
