The legendary Federation class Dreadnought was a mid-2200s project, designed to supplement the Constitution class in the defense of the Federation. The term dreadnought designates their warship status, in fact whatever class defined as such is informally nothing less than a battleship. (See HMS Dreadnought for more info on that.)
The ship was re-imagined to fit the Discovery aesthetics.
