A class 7 vessel was a Starfleet designation for a type of interplanetary sublight spacecraft, used during the 24th century. These vessels are typically armed with lasers and were manned with a small crew of about two-dozen.

In 2365, the USS Enterprise-D encountered two class-7 vessels while traversing the Omega Sagitta system. (TNG: "The Outrageous Okona")

The term class 7 vessel would seem to indicate ability, rather than design, as the two vessels with this designation that appeared were of the same class, but significantly different design lineages. The Merchantman model appeared as one of these two vessels; a new model appeared as the second. The second model would later return, slightly modified, as the Angosian transport vessel.
