For additional meanings of "Intrepid", please see Intrepid.

The USS Intrepid (NCC-74600) was the prototype for the Federation Template:ShipClass of starships, launched in the latter half of the 24th century.

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 claimed the Intrepid was on a three-year assignment patrolling the Romulan Neutral Zone while posing as Commander Jason Hayek of the Intrepid on stardate 52136 when he infiltrated a simulation of Starfleet Headquarters created by Species 8472. (VOY: "In the Flesh")

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



The Intrepid mentioned in "Force of Nature" is most likely the NCC-74600, considering that it was challenging the warp core efficiency rating of a top-of-the-line Galaxy-class starship one year before the launch of another Intrepid-class vessel, the USS Voyager. The ship's registry was not mentioned onscreen, but is from the production writings of Rick Sternbach, designer of the Intrepid-class. The name and registry eventually showed up on-screen in Star Trek: Nemesis, where Sternbach created the visuals for the production.

This vessel may have been named for the 23rd century Federation starship USS Intrepid, which was destroyed in 2268; she might also have been named for the Template:ShipClass USS Intrepid, a starship in operation in the 2340s.


This vessel also appeared in the novels Crossover (Pocket TNG) and Demons of Air and Darkness (Pocket DS9, Star Trek: Gateways series). In Crossover, the ship was commanded by Captain Terence Riley, son of Kevin Riley, and incorrectly referred to as Template:ShipClass (which is impossible because this ship was in existence at the time of the novel, 2370). The Gateways installment has Intrepid in a fleet alongside the Deep Space 9 crew, under Captain Walter Emick. The vessel and its Captain are also mentioned in Articles of the Federation.
