The Constellation class was created in the late 23rd century to keep up with the ever expanding Federation. With a four nacelle design the Constellation class had a higher top speed and longer range then the existing Constitution and Miranda class ships. The class was retired because of difficulties maintaining a stable warp field and a consistent lack of power, though some ships enjoyed a reasonable long service life.
