Advanced Starship Design Bureau Technical Database

The Advanced Starship Design Bureau (ASDB) classifies vessels according to their primary mission profiles, which in turn determine the sizes, shapes, and systems of vessels in a particular category. A ship whose primary purpose is to explore distant star systems will have a different shape and different systems than one intended to escort merchantmen in times of conflict.

However, one of Starfleet's primary moral and tactical principles is that of adaptability. Thus, unlike the often more mission-dedicated vessels of the Klingon Empire or Romulan Star Empire, any Starfleet ship can perform a wide variety of missions (even ones for which it is not primarily designed). For example, a Starfleet escort will have more advanced scientific and research systems than a comparative Klingon vessel but will not be as heavily armed. Nevertheless, Starfleet ships are best used for the primary missions for which they were created.
