The Shanks-class was a Starfleet class of light cruiser on active duty in Starfleet from the last quarter of the 23rd century to least 2367. The initial bloc of ships were commissioned in the 2270s.

The class was considered cost-effective, and consisted of a saucer-shaped primary hull with two warp nacelles directly attached. Shanks-class cruisers had a maximum velocity of warp factor 9. The standard crew complement was 347. Armaments included 2 photon torpedo tubes and 12 phaser emplacements. (Jackill's Starfleet Reference Manual: Ships of the Fleet, vol. 1 [revised])

The class may have been refit from an earlier one that included USS Reliant (NCC-1305) (Kennedy Shipyards: Starfleet Vessel Miranda Class Starship USS Reliant NCC-1864: General Blueprints and Specifications)
