The Heston class Battle cruiser was based upon the design of the
Constitution class. The class had more weaponry and enhanced sensor
range compared to the Constitution. These changes were only possible
due to the adoption of a lighter and less powerful warp drive, but
the limits of technology at the time meant that dilithium equipped
engines capable of powering a class XII ship where not yet
available. The Heston class later served as the basis for the
Federation class Dreadnought. The class was classified as a Battle
Cruiser as much of its science capability had to be sacrificed in
the quest for maximum combat capability.
