The Norway class was designed along with three other types, the Akira, Steamrunner and Sabre classes. While the aforementioned classes were designed primarily for tactical engagements, in a much needed fleet modernisation programme to ensure Starfleet could maintain the military strength needed to give weight to diplomatic protocols, the Norway class was designed to be more capable at performing diplomatic missions.

Starfleet built a ship the size of a cruiser but limited the Norway's weapons to those of a destroyer. Instead, internal systems were dedicated towards large conference facilities and diplomatic quarters. This would enable the Norway class to host negotiations between several parties. The same variable environment cabin sets that were developed for the Galaxy class were included in the Norway, to facilitate species who did not breathe oxygen-nitrogen atmospheres.

This makes the ship ideal for first contact situations, the size and relatively light weaponry will not unsettle most other species, the peaceful intentions of the Federation can be amply demonstrated by a vessel that has barely enough fire power to defend itself against other, similar-sized opponents, and would rely on its shielding and drive system to escape an attack.

When not on diplomatic missions the Norway class can be used as a surveyor or, alternatively, as a light escort for convoys (though it needs to be said that the Norway cannot protect a convoy against capital ships on her own).

In spite of her tactical limitations the Norway class is a solid, reliable design and the comparatively high accommodation standard makes her popular with her crews. Class production ran from 2341 through 2367, seventy-three Norway class ships remain in service with Starfleet, eight were lost in engagements, one to a Changeling infiltrator during the Dominion war.
