Third of the Perimeter Defense Directive ships to launch, the Norway-class fast frigate represents the epitome of Starfleet’s current automation technology. Unlike most ships of its size, which have 400-600 crew it has less than 200 due to the extensive use of automation and advanced systems on the ship. Among other things, it boasts a bio-neural computer network, advanced tactical and sensory systems, an EMH, and a holo-communications system. Its technological sophistication also shows in its use of redundant backup systems; for example, it has a fully functional auxiliary control room and a primary backup navigational computer as good as its standard models.

Due to its powerful warp drive and impulse systems, the Norway-class is a fast, highly maneuverable ship well suited to its usual perimeter defense, patrol, and threat response duties.

The Norway’s deceptively simple design – a blunt arrowhead-shaped saucer with two fin-shaped nacelle pylons projecting from its aft side – hides a potent offensive punch in the form of its six phasers and two photon launchers. However, compared to the Akira-class and the Steamrunner-class ships, it is woefully underpowered in the torpedo department.
