The Cheyenne class was a Federation starship class that saw service during the 24th century. The class was one of the few classes to have more than two warp nacelles; like the Sadat-, Nimitz-, Constellation-, Cheetah-, and Illustrious-class starships of the previous century, it had four nacelles.
The class was designed as a light cruiser and entered service in 2361. It was one of the heaviest light cruisers fielded by Starfleet. This saw it serve as an escort and patrol vessel. During the Dominion War they were tasked with supporting larger vessels and acted as the secondary anchors of wings, some even led smaller wings. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 1: The Ships of Starfleet)
The Cheyennes first entered service in 2354 with 45 ships. Refits (no new-build vessels) to the Mk-II standard began in 2369. (Star Trek: Starship Tactical Combat Simulator: Cheyenne Class XIV Cruiser)
