The Hiawatha-type was a Federation starship design operated by Starfleet during the 2250s. It was classified as a medical frigate.

The USS Hiawatha, a vessel of this class, disappeared in 2256 and was presumed destroyed by the Klingons. In reality, it had crashed on the surface of an interstellar asteroid as a result of encountering wildly fluctuating gravity waves. (DIS: "Brother")

As of 3189, several wrecked Hiawatha-type vessels orbited Hunhau amid ships destroyed by the Burn. Some of these hulks were used by the salvage yard on the surface. Following a successful prisoner revolt in the yard, Philippa Georgiou shot down one of the hulks, causing it to crash down on top of the facility. (DIS: "Scavengers")

The Hiawatha was 599.5 meters long, as was established in October 2019 by the ship's designer, Ryan Dening. [1]
