The USS Lantree (NCC-1837) was a Template:ShipClass Federation starship in operation during the late 23rd through the mid-24th century.

In 2293, the Lantree was carrying colony supplies in Sector 22858 during the time Operation Retrieve was proposed. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

During the mid-2360s it was under the command of Captain L. Isao Telaka and operated with a crew compliment of twenty-six. At the time, the Lantree was classified as a class 6 supply ship and was armed with class 3 defensive armaments.

In 2365, the ship was assigned to Sector Gamma 7. Shortly after visiting Darwin Genetic Research Station, all 26 crewmembers fell victim to a mysterious aging disease that was later identified as geriatric phenomena during communications between Dr. Sara Kingsley and the USS Enterprise-D.

After answering her distress signal, the Enterprise found the Lantree adrift in space, her crew deceased, and subsequently quarantined the ship. After it became clear that the disease, caused by the immune systems of the children at Darwin, was highly contagious and could not be cured medically, the Enterprise destroyed the starship with one photon torpedo to prevent further transmission. (TNG: "Unnatural Selection")




The Lantree was a reuse of the USS Reliant model from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, but with the "roll bar" removed.

The bridge of the Lantree was a redress of the Enterprise-D's battle bridge turned 180 degrees. The main viewer, featuring star charts, can be seen behind Captain Telaka.
