As the Excelsior class began to replace the older Constitution class cruisers as the workhorses of Starfleet, the need for a smaller, lighter vessel arose. The Decker class destroyers, named in honor of Commodore Matthew Decker and his son, Commander William Decker, was designed to fill the need for an armed ship able to carry out various escort, patrol, and deep-space tasks. Problems in redesigning the engine design introduced in the Excelsior class for a smaller hull delayed introduction of the Decker class; however, most of these problems were solved after the ships were equipped with the Daystrom Duotronics M-6A computer control system. The large Marine contingent that the "Damn Fine Decker" carried gave the class greater flexibility. Further, the Decker's long range and high speed often allowed it to arrive at a volatile area at a critical moment, with the ship's presence often calming a dangerous situation without having to fire a shot. Although no longer produced in quantity by Reference Stardate 3/03 (2363), the Decker class was still popular and respected. Vessels of the class were named for officers who showed special gallantry or sacrifice. Of the 40 Deckers constructed, 20 remained in service, two were decommissioned as training vessels, and the rest were lost, scrapped, or destroyed.[1]
