Here's the transwarp refit of the U.S.S. Resurrection.
In the mid 23rd Century, Starfleet began its first attempt at developing transwarp technology. The U.S.S. Excelsior was created specifically to testbed the experimental transwarp drive technology. It was hoped that along with the Excelsior Class, that the transwarp drive would usher in a new era of exploration. Unfortunately, the transwarp drive never met these goals.
Although the experimental transwarp drive was deemed a failure, Starfleet R&D made extraordinary technological breakthroughs in propulsion, warp field dynamics, power distribution and utilization, etc., but it would be some time before Starfleet would attempt transwarp again.
To some degree, the transwarp project was never shutdown. Rather, research into transwarp continued slowly over the next century, but it wasn't until the Borg incursions, and then later with the return of the U.S.S. Voyager, did Starleet R&D begin to discover the flaws in the experimental transwarp drive. After spending the last 40 years in research, Starfleet finally authorized the construction of another transwarp drive.
In 2426, the U.S.S. Resurrection had been involved in a minor Borg incursion on the border of the Beta Quadrant, and sustained heavy damage. Instead of decommissioning the Resurrection, Starfleet decided to rebuild her, to test the new experimental transwarp drive, and she has been equipped with additional phaser systems for added offensive and defensive capacity.
As of yet, the experimental transwarp drive has not been tested at speeds faster than Warp 9.9995, but preliminary results have made Starfleet very hopeful that the transwarp barrier will be broken safely and successfully.
