Hey is this page supposed to be redirecting to Constitution-class? Just thought I'd give the heads up, cause it's kind of weird... --Hawku 21:25, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

From the first line in the Constitution class article:
The Constitution-class starships, which were also known as Starship class starships

Alternate reality use Edit

I noticed that, in Star Trek Beyond, the dedication plaque of the USS Franklin cites it as starship class. --Defiant (talk) 06:49, July 22, 2016 (UTC)

Since the ship is from before the 2233 split, it's really a 2160s issue, not an alternate reality one. We can slap on the 2160s disambiguation for now at least, and work it out later when we have more info. - Archduk3 06:55, July 22, 2016 (UTC)

Good point, though I would say even earlier than 2160s, since the ship predates the NX-class. --Defiant (talk) 07:14, July 22, 2016 (UTC)

Haven't seen the film yet, just going by the the page. If there's no hard date, "22nd century" would work. - Archduk3 07:19, July 22, 2016 (UTC)
Starship Class has been used as a class designation for the TOS Enterprise, the Kelvin Timeline Enterprise, and now the Franklin. Could this term reflect a heirarchy of classification, in which Starship Class is at a higher level than, say, a specific class of ship, like Constitution-class, and that it is used for describing a family of ship classes that have similiar configurations?--Memphis77 (talk) 08:13, July 22, 2016 (UTC)
Probably, but that's a thing to ask a production source in an interview. For now, taking it at face value would be best. There's enough new info to work through that this can sit a bit. - Archduk3 22:56, July 22, 2016 (UTC)
