"You're on Enterprise. Enterprise-J to be exact, a distant relative of your ship. We're four hundred years in the future."
– Daniels, to Jonathan Archer, 26th century ("Azati Prime")

The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-J) was a 26th century Federation Universe-class starship operated by Starfleet in a possible future. (ENT: "Azati Prime")

The Enterprise-J participated in the historic Battle of Procyon V, wherein the forces of the Federation successfully drove the Sphere-Builders back into their trans-dimensional realm.

In 2154, as Captain Jonathan Archer of Enterprise NX-01 was preparing to undertake a suicide mission to destroy the Xindi weapon in the Delphic Expanse, Temporal Agent Daniels transported Archer to an observation deck aboard the Enterprise-J to witness the battle, while the vessel was in a trans-dimensional disturbance. It was Daniels' hope that Archer could be convinced to abandon his suicide mission and attempt to make peace with the Xindi, informing Archer that, without him, the Federation would never come into existence and the Sphere-Builders would remain unopposed. Archer was unconvinced, however, and demanded that Daniels return him to his own time.

Daniels also revealed that there were Xindi serving on the Enterprise-J. An initiation medal Daniels gave Archer belonged to one of these crewmembers. (ENT: "Azati Prime")

Archer would later reveal to Degra about his trip to the future and being on board the Enterprise-J and learning that the Xindi were serving aboard it. (ENT: "The Council")




Background information

Doug Drexler's Enterprise-J

Since the Star Trek: Enterprise writing staff was pressed for time, little time was spent deliberating over the name of this vessel. Manny Coto later reflected, "We were just sitting around the room and said, 'What should it be?' 'J.' 'OK.'" (Star Trek: Communicator issue 152, p. 50)


The 2005 Star Trek: Ships of the Line calendar later featured a specially created, fully rendered image of the Enterprise-J in flight.

The Enterprise-J appears in Agents of Yesterday, the third expansion to Star Trek Online. After pursuing the Temporal Liberation Front (made up of the Sphere-Builders, the Na'kuhl, the Vorgons, and the Krenim) throughout time and space, the player characters travel to the 26th century to defeat them at the Battle of Procyon V. With the aid of Starfleet legends (and temporal agents) Montgomery Scott and Pavel Chekov, the player installs the Tox Uthat onboard the Enterprise-J, which allows it to destroy the Sphere-Builders' spheres and dissipate their Expanse in the Procyon system. The captain of the ship is a female joined Trill, a future host of the Dax symbiont.
