Star Trek Expanded Universe

The George Washington class space control ship was a type of starship on active duty in Starfleet during the very late 23rd and early 24th centuries. (Task Force Games: UFP: The Federation Sourcebook for Prime Directive)

The standard crew complement was 549, including 72 surface action specialists. No Prime Teams were usually embarked aboard this class of vessel.

The prototype and lead ship of the class were commissioned ca. 2297.

This class might not exist in the same continuity as some ships of the Fredrikstad-class. The names Zhukov, Julius Caesar and George Washington may have been assigned to Fredrikstad class hulls when funding for the George Washington class wasn't authorized.
