The Messier class warp cruiser entered service in January 2106; 875 were built. The class was the first to be equipped with the newly-developed particle beam cannon. Carrying a crew of 93, the Messier class remained in service until 2161. Refitted for military use, many Messier class ships, including the U.N.S.S. Pollux, saw considerable action during the Romulan War.[1][2]
