The Valhalla-Class project originally began in January of 2365. The project was handed to the Tau Ceti Secundus Propulsion Research Station and Shipyard for development.
Shortly following the start of the Dominion War, certain members of Star Fleet Command began looking at the current fleet in light of heavy losses. With the war came a press to create more vessels of a purely tactical nature, and as losses continued to mount these warships began to be more and more desirable. More and more resources were thrown into the development of tactical ships. With the opening of the Gamma Quadrant, Starfleet also wanted a ship series that could operate more self-sufficiently.
In early 2373 at the outbreak of hostilities between the Federation and the Dominion, the first Valhalla Class ship was launched in secret. The prototype surpassed the expectations of Star Fleet Command, providing a powerful ship capable of adequately carrying out the tactical mission requirements that were what Starfleet needed for the war effort. The production run was given the go-ahead and the Prototype was commissioned in 2374 under the name USS Valhalla, registry NCC-18000. The next three ships in the production line quickly followed and were pressed into service.
Pursuant to Starfleet Exploration Directives 1016.8 & 901.12, Federation Diplomatic Corps Mandate 66.105.b, 66.105.c & 200.2.2, and Federation Security Council General Policy, the following objectives have been established for the Valhalla Class Starship.
The Valhalla Class is designed primarily to provide a platform as a tactical space superiority or 'Sector Control' ship also capable of covert missions. They are also able to fulfill most of the more traditional Starfleet missions assigned to other ships within the fleet. These included: • Deep Space Exploration • First Contact • Flag/Command Vessel • Diplomatic Escort/Conduct • Humanitarian Missions
