Reference Stardate 0/9200 through 0/9206.30
- RSD 0/9204: The Vanguard class transport is commissioned. It is the largest transport ship of the 21st century and serves as the primary multipurpose starship of the Earth Starfleet during the Romulan War and of Starfleet Materiel Command in the early years of the Federation. Its side-loading bays and adaptable cargo interior make for ready accommodation of different payloads, from small craft to raw ore to nearly 1000 passengers. Later models will be uprated to keep pace with advances in warp technology, and the class will remain in service until 2185. Just under 1600 will eventually be constructed for military and commercial use.
