The Pathfinder class was designed as a modern replacement for the long-
serving Oberth class science vessel.  The requirement called for a ship
capable of making relatively short duration missions; Starfleet intended
to use these ships in the large unexplored areas between Federation-
controlled space, missions which would typically be staged out of
Starbases and last for a few months up to a year at most.

Originally introduced in 2369, the class received a major overall and refit
in 2405.  Today, the starship is one of the smallest frigates in service
with limited range and limited multimission capability.  One of the few
modernizations in the design is the inclusion of the d-warp drive which
substantially increases the cruising range and versitility of the design.
