The Olympic-class was a type of Federation starship in service in the 24th century. They entered service in 2361 and arose out of a need for Starfleet to replace the fleet of aging hospital ships that were at their disposal.

Appearence and facilities

Unlike most other Federation starships, the Olympic-class vessels don't possess a saucer section for its command hull, but a spheroid-shaped command hull akin to the design of the Daedalus-class of starships that were in service in the 23rd century. The added space granted by a spheroid command hull, allows most of the ship's laboratories and wards to be included.

While the engineering hull of the Olympic-class are like any other design in use by Starfleet, extra sections were added to the sides of the engineering hull, which contained additional laboratories and wards. These proved invaluable, as they could be used to treat highly contageous patients and could be separated by the main sections of the ship. All of the facililites abord these ships were equipped with the latest medical equipment and staffed by some of the best medical personnel that served in Starfleet.

Another feature that was included into the Olympic-class was that its modularity, which meant that Starfleet could easily equip the vessels with different facilities that depended on the type of mission it would be sent on. Laboratories and wards could easily be replaced with other modules that could be customized for medical research, disaster relief, combat surgery, epidemic research, evacuation and triage, or just general humanitarian aid.

Background

The TNG roleplay module: The Price of Freedom states that the Olympic-class is a medical cruiser, while ST - Countdown comic: "Countdown, Number Three" calls the ships medical frigates. The sources are from different eras (the early 2370s versus the late 2380s), which may explain why the vessels's mission profile could be described differently.
