The Prometheus class vessel was designed after the first major encounter with the Dominion. It was intended to be used as a long-range tactical scout and explorer but also to go behind enemy lines, destroy key installations and return safely due to superior speed unmatched by any known non-Borg vessel.

The term Prometheus class could be entered into a thesaurus as a synonym for tactical flexibility, is is capable of dealing with any tactical situation that three Defiant class vessels working together could deal with, and can also brave situations you would only send the heaviest of Starfleet's warships into. This is not only due to the separation but is owed in large part to the strong weaponry and thick skin of ablative armour, 15cm thick on average.

The Prometheus's internal layout is dedicated to a large store of supplies and spare parts, allowing the ship to go on long-range missions for up to five years, longer if supplies are found while under way. The maximum cruising velocity of warp 9.9, faster than most ship's maximum rated speed, allows the Prometheus to reach places inaccessible to conventional Starfleet vessels.

When making contact with alien species, in docked mode, the majority of the ship's offensive weaponry are hidden from view. It is meant not to scare (too much), but in case of a hostile encounter it can fight back, or at least survive initial hits to make a successful escape.

Test runs with the prototype have shown that the Prometheus is not vulnerable to a direct attack by enemy vessels, the biggest threat (and best way to take her out) is a covert infiltration aimed at either taking her over or destroying her from within, as impressively demonstrated by the Tal'Shiar, who perceived the vessel as a direct threat to the Romulan Star Empire.

While a capable long range explorer the Prometheus class does not have much in the way of scientific equipment aboard, and is indeed almost useless as a surveyor. It is also very costly, which has led Starfleet to only field a few vessels of this class for special, often clandestine assignments. By 2387, only sixteen vessels of the class had been completed, with another seven planned. This makes the Prometheus the class with the lowest production run in the history of Starfleet, with the exception of prototypes with sub-standard performance.
