The Diligent-class was a class of heavy escort that saw service in Starfleet during the 24th century.

The Diligent class was built as a response to lessons learned by Starfleet from the Dominion War. Starfleet Command saw the need for a new design that could expand on the successes of the Defiant-class, a design that was compact with significant combat capabilities but also had the capacity to undertake other mission profiles from small scale diplomatic missions to exploration.

The Diligent was equipped with the latest technology, including bio-neural circuitry and the latest in sensor and propulsion technology. In many regards it was superior to the similarly designed Defiant-class, however it was not seen as a replacement, but to supplement that class. (Bravo Fleet)
