NCC-G1465 was the registry number of a Federation Antares-type freighter that was in service with Starfleet during the mid-23rd century. This ship was fully automated and carried no crew.

In 2269, this ship, and its sister ship NCC-61465, were assigned to the command of USS Enterprise for a quintotriticale run to Sherman's Planet. They were operated by remote-control.

During an encounter with the IKS Devisor under the command of Captain Koloth, one of the ships was disabled, and its cargo was transferred to the Enterprise. The Devisor later returned and attacked the second ship, disabling its propulsion systems as well. The ship was later recovered and towed by the Enterprise to Sherman's Planet. (TAS: "More Tribbles, More Troubles")

This appearance of the two robot grain ships was the first on-screen appearance of this ship class. It was not until later that a CGI model was created to represent independent starships in remastered Star Trek: The Original Series in 2007.

In the Star Trek: Ships of the Line (2008) calendar, Daren Dochterman created an illustration, which he named "The Animateds", that was for the month of July. This illustration was based on the battle seen in "More Tribbles, More Troubles".
