Medical ships are a staple of the galaxy and of course, with the inauguration of Starfleet, they were produced and have been a common sight in the Federation since then. In the 2360’s the Hope and Nightingale classes, Starfleet's staple since the early 2200’s, was beginning to look a bit antiquated. With comparably slow warp drive and limited range, they were not quite up to the task in hand and Starfleet gave their designers a new brief to replace the Hope and Nightingale, both of which fulfilled substantially different roles, with a new class---the Olympic. The brief was challenging, as the ship had to be capable of high warp, whilst also providing large hospital facilities, emergency evacuation capability and emergency medical support. In essence, it had to be both a Rapid Reaction Medical Ship and a Hospital all rolled into one.

The design briefs were completed and submitted in 2363 and in the end, the Olympic class was chosen as the primary design and immediately put into development. With vast and highly varied medical facilities, high warp capability and excellent transport and evacuation rate, the Olympics’ only possible downside was her comparatively weak tactical ability. Originally mounted with the bare minimum of weapons and shields, the Olympics’ lack of defensive ability would prove to be a major problem during the next few years of her operation. The first prototype rolled off of the production line and after an extremely painless shakedown period, the class went into full time production, with an initial production run of 15 Olympic class vessels scheduled, the class looked like it had a long a vibrant history ahead of her.

It was however, during the Second Federation-Klingon War and the Dominion War which immediately followed it that the Olympic classes defensive weaknesses began to become a real problem. At that time there were 72 in service with the Federation and they were rushed into the combat areas to extricate casualties, under the erroneous impression that they would not be attacked whilst on humanitarian duty. Neither the Klingons, nor later the Dominion however operated under the same assumption and over a three year period, 31 of the 72 Olympic class vessels in service were lost to enemy action, despite a decision to assign escorts to the weaker ships.

In the end, Starfleet’s answer was to refit the Olympic to improve her combat systems, with upgraded shields and weapons systems. Arguably the defensive upgrades may have made the Olympic more of a target to hostile vessels, however the trade off for protection is considered more than viable.

In 2380, the Olympic class was refitted with brand new Warp drives, Computer Cores and processing systems as well as a major overhaul of her tactical and sensor systems, improving their efficiency and decreasing their size, to enable the fitting of a handful of extra weapons systems and improved sensor resolution and communications range. The Olympic will in theory enjoy many more years of service with Starfleet thanks to these upgrades and has a bright future.
