Star Trek Expanded Universe
For the 25th-century Federation starship class, see Ascension class (25th century).

Ascension-class dreadnoughts were a type of starship on active duty in Starfleet during the late 23rd and early 24th centuries. (Starship Design)

The design was derived from the Decatur-class and Belknap-class strike cruiser concepts of the late 2270s, especially the "routine-detachable" warp nacelles.

The first ships of the class were commissioned ca. 2281. In all, six were commissioned.

In RIS Bouteina, this class of ships is called the Pac-Man dreadnought instead.

In this continuity, ten Ascension-class dreadnoughts were built, and all scrapped not long after the Khitomer Accords. (Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet, Part 1b)
