Background information Edit
The name for this class was devised by the production staff and was revealed by Okuda in the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 472). Production photos of this class appeared in the special features section of the TNG Season 4 DVD.
The scratch-built "kit-bash" studio model of the pre-damaged Freedom-class USS Firebrand was created at Gregory Jein, Inc. by Jein and his staff for the "graveyard" scene that the USS Enterprise-D traveled through following the Battle of Wolf 359.
