Star Trek Expanded Universe

USS Star League (NCC-2101) was a Federation-class dreadnought on active duty in Starfleet during at least the late 23rd and early 24th centuries. The construction of Star League and her sister ships was authorized stardate 6066. (Star Fleet Technical Manual)

While stardate 6066 would be c. 2270, all ships of this class entered Starfleet service several years earlier, per various fan continuities.


After a refit in 2268, Star League was also the lead ship and prototype for a class of dreadnoughts. (Jackill's Starfleet Reference Manual: Ships of the Fleet, vol. 1, 2006 revision) Refits and new-build ships of other Federation-class ships to the Star League-class configuration would wait, however, until linear warp drive was tested on such vessels as Decatur, Intrepid and Enterprise.

The Decatur was the first Starfleet vessel to have linear warp drive. Per TOS novel: My Enemy, My Ally, the second Constitution-class Intrepid was a testbed for many upgrades that would later be implemented on Enterprise before the latter was relaunched in 2273.

In the late 2270s, Star League was relaunched and its mission profile changed to be a more diplomatic one. Two highly qualified Starfleet senior officers -- Vincent DeSalle and Stephen L. Garrovick -- vied for the position of its commanding officer. The position went to Garrovick. (Starfleet Supplemental Communiqué 1:9)

The relaunched Star League had one-third better engine performance than other Federation-class ships, as well as "warp-powered" phasers, improved medical facilities, faster turbolifts and overall better operational standards.

For many years, Star League was assigned to the Starfleet First Fleet. (Starfleet International: USS Star League)

Commodore Jake Caffey was in command during the 2260's and 2270's. (Star Trek: The Intrepid Adventures - Convergence, A Top Brass Sendoff)
