The Daedalus class was an early class of Starfleet starship, designated as a cruiser. This class was commissioned soon after the formation of the Federation in 2161 and decommissioned in 2196. (TNG: "Power Play")
The Starfleet Museum continuityEdit
The Daedalus class was the exploratory version of the Comet-class cruiser in service to the United Earth Space Navy. The lead ship of the Daedalus class entered service a month before the end of the Earth-Romulan War. (The Starfleet Museum)
The class started to be withdrawn from service in 2196 as newer vessels such as the Venture-class and Armstrong-class vessels started to fill its roles in the fleet. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 4: Starships of the Original Series Era)
