The USS Constellation (NX-1974) was a 23rd century Federation Constellation-class starship operated by Starfleet. She was the prototype of her class.

In 2293, the Constellation was undergoing certification tests at Starbase 24. The ship was named on a Starship Mission Assignments chart on the USS Enterprise-A bridge. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)


Background information

In an internal list of starships, from 26 September 1990, the Constellation's registry was NCC-2427. [1]

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (1st ed., p. 56) depicted a black-and-white side profile of this starship with the registry NCC-1974. The NCC registry was also mentioned in the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion (? ed., p. ?). In the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 158), the authors "conjecture that this U.S.S. Constellation was named in honor of Matt Decker's ship, destroyed in "The Doomsday Machine". (TOS)"

An unseen element from the Operation Retrieve charts included a list of starships, their registries and their commanders. According to this list, the Constellation was commanded by G. Cantemessa and its last reported location was in Sector 23006. [2]
