The Newton class was a class of starship in service to Starfleet in the early to late 23rd century.
A typical ship of this type had two active outboard nacelles placed above the centerline and two secondary hulls below. The secondary hulls were connected by swept pylons that connected to to the back of the primary hull when the impulse drive was located. The upper nacelles connected to the primary hull at the rear port and starboard quadrants and were connected together with a "rollbar", similar to the ones on the Armstrong class.
In the alternate reality, one ship of this class participated in the pivotal Battle of Vulcan in 2258, the USS Newton. A year later, three of these ships were seen near Starbase 1 before the USS Enterprise proceeded on its mission to Qo'noS. Two of these ships, including USS Biddeford, were docked. A third ship was departing from the spacedock.
