The Soyuz-class was a type of starship in service to the Federation in the mid-23rd century, until being removed from service in 2288.

The USS Bozeman, under the command of Captain Morgan Bateson, was a Soyuz-class vessel. (TNG episode: "Cause and Effect")

When all of the Soyuz class were being retired from service, several of their components were removed and installed on other ships. The parts taken from them included phaser strips and subspace transceivers. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual)

The Soyuz-class vessels "could barely exceed warp six," according to Morgan Bateson. (TNG comic: "Out of Time")

It is unclear from the context if this was literally a limit of the Soyuzes, whether Bateson was speaking facetiously, or both.
The Soyuz model seen on screen was a redesign of the Miranda-class vessel. However, since the Miranda-class was seen in use well into the 24th century, it may be speculated that it, in fact, was a redesign of the Soyuz. Some parts of the Enterprise Phase II Model were used to create the Bozeman , a clear visible part is the different Bridge Module.

The Soyuz-class was a type of Federation starship, serving in Starfleet during the late 23rd century before its retirement by 2290.


Exterior Design

Similar in design to the Miranda-class, the typical Soyuz-class starship had an enlarged aft section housing cargo- and shuttlebays. Several large outboard sensor pods, sometimes mistaken for heavy weapon mounts, also graced the enlarged aft section.


The Soyuz class starships were designated as an attack frigate or tactical frigate. The aft section of the primary hull had megaphaser mounts (rather than sensor pods) and has launch bays for fightercraft. (Jackill's Starfleet Reference Manual: Ships of the Fleet, vol. 1 [revised]])

Star Trek: Avenger and Star Trek: Accord continuities

The Star Trek: Avenger and Star Trek: Accord fan fiction continuities subscribe to this interpretation. These continuities also continue the use of the Soyuz-class starships past the canonical 2290 date and into the early 24th century.

Further, while Jackill's notes that the Soyuzii were commissioned in the mid-2270s, these two continuities see that as a refit and recommissioning date from a class (also named Soyuz) that was similar but used PB-31 or similar type warp nacelles available in the late 2250s.

Kennedy Shipyards

The Soyuz class is seen as a derivative of the Miranda-class and this type of vessel is called a "super" heavy destroyer. The aft hull section is said to house additional deuterium and antimatter stores. The class has a total of four type-2 pulse phaser cannons mounted at the hardpoints. (Kennedy Shipyards: Starfleet Vessel Miranda Class Starship USS Reliant NCC-1864: General Blueprints and Specifications)

This continuity also says that the class was in service 80 years past the canonical 2290 date, as late as the Dominion War.

Diane Carey's Ship of the Line

This pro novel designates the Bozeman and other Soyuz-class starships as "border cutters" and gives them duties similar to ships of the US Coast Guard. (TNG novel: Ship of the Line)
