Re: TOS Alphabetical Starship Classifications

We also here reference to a Class F shuttlecraft. That suggests to me that the alphabetical classification refers to a type of vessel.

A Class J starship could also be an Independence-class starship. The former refers to its type and the latter to its configuration.

In that vein the Enterprise could be a Class A starship as well as a Constitution-class Heavy Cruiser. These things needn't be mutually exclusive.

We know what a Class F shuttlecraft looks like. We've no idea what a Class E or A or L looks like. Are they more advanced or less? Does their intended primary function dictate their classification?
