The USS Intrepid (NCC-74600) was a 24th century Federation starship operated by Starfleet.

In 2370, Commander Donald Kaplan, the ship's chief engineer, regularly engaged in power conversion efficiency contests with Geordi La Forge, chief engineer of the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Force of Nature")

In 2375, Commander Chakotay, under the alias Jason Hayek, infiltrated a Species 8472 terrasphere that was simulating Starfleet Command. Chakotay fabricated a story about just having been transferred from the Intrepid. Boothby was surprised to hear this, because he thought the ship was on a three-year tour patrolling the Neutral Zone. (VOY: "In the Flesh")

In 2379, the Intrepid was in Star Fleet Battle Group Omega, deployed in sector 1045 to counter the Reman threat. (Star Trek Nemesis)


Background information[]

The Star Trek Encyclopedia, 4th ed., vol. 1, p. 374 described the Intrepid as the prototype for the Intrepid-class starship. It was assumed by the authors of this reference work that this was the third Federation Starfleet ship named Intrepid.

According to Star Trek: Starship Spotter, the USS Intrepid and the USS Voyager were the first two Intrepid-class starships to be constructed at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in 2370 and early-2371.


In the Pocket TNG novel Crossover, the Intrepid was commanded by Captain Terence Riley (β), son of Kevin Riley, and was a Galaxy-class starship.

The novel Demons of Air and Darkness, from the Star Trek: Gateways series, shows the Intrepid commanded by Captain Walter Emick (β) in a fleet alongside the Deep Space 9 crew.

The Intrepid was also mentioned in Articles of the Federation.
