The Niagara entered service in 2349 to complement the Istanbul-class fast cruiser already in service with Starfleet. It kept the same three-nacelle design, reversing it by having two above and the third below the engineering hull. Compared to that design the Niagara was faster, had superior cargo capacity but was less well-armed. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 1: The Ships of Starfleet)
