|The Insignia is one of the first complete multi-purpose vessels in Starfleet. Designed to
bolster the front lines during the Elorg War, the Insignia very quickly became an integral
part of the war efforts. By the war's end, more than 70 Insignia-class starships were
operating within Federation space.
Because of its modular design, the Insignia-class features a unique deck plan. While any of
the 8 modules can be removed and replaced with relative ease, the 6 modules that make
up the port and starboard sides of the saucer are typically replaced. Crew quarters and
other recreational facilities are contained in the two remaining modules, and are typically
replaced only as a last resort.
Facilities crucial to ship functions, including the bridge, sickbay, and main engineering, are
a part of the main hull, and cannot be replaced outside of a major refit.
The Insignia design featured on this page is outfitted with the standard modules required
for exploratory and scientific missions. When placed into a tactical situation, the Insignia
can be outfitted with modules capable of enhancing both its offensive and defensive
