The Falcon class was a proposed class of heavy cruiser submitted in 2377.
The ideal would be to take a heavy cruiser and redesignate it a strike cruiser, which would take advantage of recent developments in warp field theory and engine technology. This would combine the speed and maneuverability of a cruiser with the power of a heavy cruiser.
Over many objections of less military-minded Starfleet officers, the USS Falcon began construction on March 17, 2378, at the New London Fleet Yards.
