The Valkyrie-class was designed as a replacement for the Peregrine-class fighter designed in the 2360s. It was a superior fighter that made use of advances in technology from the 2370s. It was similarly armed but was faster and more manoeuvrable.
By 2381, however, these fighters were still being deployed in fairly limited numbers, and were often shuffled around the fleet, The USS Beliskner received a squadron of Valkyrie fighters for flight evaluations when it was upgraded to Space Control Ship specs, but they would soon be replaced by upgraded Peregrine-class fighters when the vessel was returned to fleet.
