The Prometheus-class was a type of starship that saw service with the Federation Starfleet during the 24th century. The first prototype of the Promotheus-class was launched in 2374 as the USS Prometheus. (VOY: "Message in a Bottle")
- Due to his affiliation with Section 31, it is most likely Theseus acquired schematics through their help.
By 2370, Phoenix-X was in secret-construction, in Cardassian territory, in a failed effort by Section 31 to form a working relationship with the Obsidian Order. Construction was halted when the relationship fell through. While there, the ship was fitted with an experimental transwarp engine. (Short story: The Recruited, Star Trek: Phoenix-X: "Mirrorlyness!", "Secret Occurrences")
In 2371, Smiley O'Brien obtained a copy of the Prometheus-class schematics from Quark, who in turn accidentally obtained the schematics from Obsidian Order exile Elim Garak. Upon returning to the mirror universe, Smiley placed the schematics into construction, to be produced alongside the Defiant class construction. ("Mirrorlyness!")
A few months after the launch of the USS Prometheus, the Phoenix-X, a clone of the prototype, and Theseus' personal project, was finally complete and was launched from the Beta Antares Fleet Yards. (VOY: "Message in a Bottle", Star Trek: Phoenix-X: "The Tiloniam System", "The Tilonian System", "Experimentalism", "Secret Occurrences")
In the Mirror universe, the Prometheus-class proved too difficult for the Terran Rebellion to recreate and it took 4 and a half years to construct and launch. In 2375, the mirror Phoenix-X was launched and, soon after, accidentally pulled into the primary universe and destroyed. ("Pure Evil", "Mirrorlyness!")
This class version was built with a maximum evacuation capacity of 3,700 on initial units but, by 2385, due to the threat the next generation of MVAM-capable Hydran carriers posed, they were updated to 8,000. The USS Hercules was the first unit and, after the Evacuation of Romulus, many veterans of the Evacuation have pushed for even higher evacuation capacity. ("Relief and Refuge")
