With variable geometry nacelle warp drive it is able to go faster than the warp 5 speed limit without damaging the fabric of space-time, an effect conventional warp drives had until the starship Enterprise 1701-D encountered subspace ruptures in a highly travelled area of space in the Alpha Quadrant, after which Starfleet Command instituted the warp 5 limit.
It is a small but highly advanced Federation vessel which was pulled into the Delta Quadrant of the galaxy by an alien entity known as the Caretaker.
