For the 24th century class of starships, please see Intrepid class.

The Intrepid type was a starship type in service with the United Earth Starfleet in the mid-22nd century. The class was armed with phase cannons and two torpedo launchers. (ENT: "The Expanse")

In an alternate 2165 this type of vessel was included in the Earth convoy destined to settle on Ceti Alpha V. (ENT: "Twilight")

The torpedo launchers have never been seen firing in an episode, but are clearly visible on production stills of the "shooting model". [1]
In the final draft script of "The Expanse", the Intrepid was referred to as a warp two ship.

Background information

The Intrepid was a CGI model created at Eden FX that was essentially a kitbash, built by Pierre Drolet, rendered, animated and lit by Rob Bonchune from the John Eaves design based on the NX-class model. Eaves went on to remark, "The armada drawings never went past the rough sketch form and after the producers made their choices the drawings went right to Eden to be built." [2] According to Bonchune, "any and all parts were pilfered if possible! Only way to get things done!" [3]

Regarding the designation of the ship model, Bonchune said, "As for the "half saucer", we honestly have never called it anything else. Even our directory structures are called half saucer. We did not even catch that it was referred to as the Intrepid in an episode!" [4]

Orthographic projections of the original CGI model, posted by Bonchune, can be found at and on Doug Drexler's blog. [5](X)


According to the novel Beneath the Raptor's Wing, this class of Earth starships was named the Intrepid class.
