The USS Drake was a Federation light cruiser in service during the mid-24th century.

In 2364, Commander William T. Riker, then-XO of the USS Enterprise-D, declined Starfleet's offer to take command of the Drake.

Under the command of Captain Paul Rice, the Drake was destroyed by an ancient automated weapons platform known as the Echo Papa 607 while in orbit of Minos.

The Echo Papa 607, masquerading as Captain Rice, claimed the Drake's top speed as warp three. (TNG: "The Arsenal of Freedom")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (2nd ed., p. 122) this vessel was a Wambundu-class starship, with the registry NCC-20381. The Encyclopedia further notes that the ship was named after Sir Francis Drake.
