USS Galileo-A is a Nova-class Mark II vessel, a Federation science and scout starship in service during the late 24th century first entering service in 2391 and currently in its initial production phase. The class is designed for short-range and limited-duration research missions such as nebula, planetary, and system surveys. The Mark II is also tasked with executing extensive in-depth research and analysis on a chosen region after a larger explorer vessel has made the initial discovery. The Mark II is the successor to the Nova-class Mark I, now referred to as the 'legacy' Nova, and incorporates the latest Starfleet technological advances to further its scientific mission capability.

Notable improvements in the Mark II design compared to the legacy Nova-class include a streamlined internal configuration allowing for a reduced crew compliment; an improved matter/anti-matter warp core and fusion drive; and bio-neural gel pack integration necessary to support an improved computer core assembly. In addition, heuristic analysis of legacy Nova-class deployments and operations has led to a decreased torpedo compliment. In place of many of the quantum and photon warheads, the ordinance casings have been reconfigured to allow an increased probe compliment more suitable to mission profiles requiring sustained scientific investigation. Upgraded phaser arrays (Type X) and EWAR fleet support capabilities have also been added, allowing the Mark II to serve as a front-line support vessel during times of hostilities.
