|Status:||Active (as of 2308)|
USS Catchon (NX-3400) was the lead ship of the Catchon-class interceptors, active in Starfleet service during the late 23rd and early 24th centuries. (Jackill's Starfleet Reference Manual: Ships of the Fleet, vol. 1 [revised])
Catchon entered service ca. 2275.
A dedicated warship, Catchon and its sister ships have a similar mission profile to that of perimeter action ships. They have a smaller aspect than the prototype Dupleix-class large perimeter action ship and are capable of longer mission durations.
Two 5-person teams of surface action specialists are standard for this class, though more can be carried aboard depending on mission requirements.
