The Hoover class was a type of Federation starship operated by Starfleet in the mid-23rd century.

The primary hull bore a resemblance to the later Miranda-class and Nebula-class vessels, with the rounded fore section and the angled aft area.

Some of its interiors, including its transporter room and corridors, resembled those of the Crossfield-class. (ST: "The Escape Artist")

Two ships of this class, including the USS Edison, participated in Battle of the Binary Stars with the Klingons in 2256. (DIS: "Battle at the Binary Stars")
