Firestorm Destroyer
Created shortly after the Four Years War, the Firestorm Class Destroyer was built for one purpose: to hunt down and destroy vessels. The Federation wanted a cheap, small and powerful vessel. The basic Firestorm chassis began as a rejected scout ship, similar in function to the Oberth. That scout’s electronics systems were ripped out and a large quantity of weapons installed in their place.

The Firestorm Destroyer was successful in its intended role, though Federation commanders would have rather had medium phasers than the intermediate phasers installed on the Firestorm.

As relations with the Klingon Empire began to warm and the Romulans once more retreated into isolation, the political climate that bred the need for the Firestorm disappeared. As this era of heightened tensions receded the Firestorm was one of the first casualties. Starfleet deemed the ship no longer necessary and they were removed from service.
