The USS Nobel (NCC-55012) was a 24th century Federation starship operated by Starfleet.

The Nobel fought in the Dominion War. In 2374, the starship reported numerous casualties to Starfleet Command. The name of the reporting ship and its registry and the casualties were named on the Personnel Status Update chart in the Deep Space 9 wardroom. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight", okudagram)

List of casualties Edit

The Nobel was named for Alfred Nobel, a Swedish scientist and industrialist of the 19th century who invented dynamite and founded the famous Nobel Prize. (Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 85)) This ship's name and registry were only barely visible on screen, named on the wardroom set used in filming. This graphic was pictured in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion.
According to the Encyclopedia, the USS Nobel was an Olympic-class hospital ship, and was the same ship as the USS Noble mentioned in the TNG episode "Interface".
