The USS Majestic is moderately armed, diplomatic Starfleet vessel developed at the Utopia Planatia Fleet Yards in response to a need to replace the aging Norway and Ambassador class vessels in an effort to better serve Starfleet’s Diplomatic Corps. The project was officially begun in 2372 by Starfleet’s Advanced Starship Design Bureau (ASDB) following the initiation of the Dominion War. In the final months of the Dominion War, Starfleet required many of their starships to entertain diplomatic missions in an attempt to secure additional allies against the Dominion. These missions were often hindered by the limitations of aged starships like the Norway and Ambassador class. New innovations stemming from the Sovereign class allowed for rapid design, systems integrations and vehicle construction. The final dimensions of the new ship became 357 meters by 171 meters by 60 meters and fifteen decks.

The Majestic team was made up of approximately a quarter of the engineers who had served on the Intrepid class design team. As such, many design elements in the Majestic can be traced to the Intrepid class. Many of these elements were taken completely from the Intrepid and placed into the Majestic, such as the bridge, sickbay, and other internal fittings. The saucer also houses a scaled-down version of the same sensor suite found on the Intrepid class. The Intrepid's influence helped to speed the development of the ship. However, the majority of the work was devoted to designing a completely new engineering hull and nacelles. Aesthetically similar to the nacelles of the Sovereign and Prometheus designs, the warp components of the Majestic are all original. Designed to be quickly mass-produced and simple, the design eliminates the complex variable-geometry nacelle configuration of the Intrepid in favor of a fixed nacelle strut.

The weapons payload of the Majestic is a step up from the Norway, with Type IX arrays and four burst-fire torpedo launchers. These armaments were balanced to allow the ship to better perform its role as a patrol vessel, while not encumbering its sensors, engines, and communications subsystems.

To accommodate diplomatic duties, a diplomatic suite was included as the majority of deck two. This includes a Grand Reception hall, three small offices, a small assembly room for diplomatic functions and two smaller meeting chambers. Unusual for a frigate vessel, a small galley/kitchen was also installed to allow it to handle diplomatic functions. This gives the Majestic exceptional diplomatic capabilities for a vessel of its size. A single shuttlebay was designed to hold standard Type 9 shuttles, while the main long-range support craft of the ship was intended to be its Aerowing runabout.
