In the [[Pendragon timeline|''Pendragon'' timeline]], [[Starfleet Research and Development]] and the [[Starfleet Corps of Engineers]] began working on quantum slipstream drive in [[2378]], almost immediately after the {{uss|Voyager|NCC-74656}}'s return to the [[Alpha Quadrant]]. The {{uss|Spirit}} served as an early testbed for the drive, though the technology's existence was kept classified for several years. Limited supplies of the necessary [[benamite]] crystals hampered the widespread application of the drive as well. Due to the nature of the quantum slipstream's interactions with subspace, there were many starship types whose hull design and warp field geometry were incompatible with the drive tech, including the {{class|Galaxy}}, {{class|Pendragon}} and {{class|Sovereign}}. In contrast, vessels of the {{class|Intrepid}} were able to easily implement slipstream drives.

By early [[2381]], ships of the {{class|Vesta}} were equipped with the technology, including the {{uss|Aventine}}. The success of the drive on these vessels and others, led to the implementation of [[Project Full Circle]], a long-term exploration and diplomatic initiative in the [[Delta Quadrant]], led by ''Voyager''.

By [[2384]], the {{uss|Odyssey|NCC-81302}} was outfitted with a modified slipstream drive and embarked on an exploratory mission to the [[Andromeda galaxy]]. Around the same time, ships of the {{class|Vesta}} were equipped with the technology as well, a development which had come several years earlier in the "Dominion War timeline." The success of the drive on these vessels and others led to the implementation of [[Project Full Circle]], a long-term exploration initiative in the [[Delta Quadrant]].
