The USS Reliant was a 24th century Federation starship operated by Starfleet.

Lieutenant Nakamura was assigned to the vessel when he first met Ensign Jean-Luc Picard. Nakamura had voiced his strong views to Picard about snap inspections and the admirals who pulled them. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man")

This starship was only mentioned in dialogue.
The reference to the Reliant was originally omitted in the original broadcast version of "The Measure Of A Man", but was restored for the special extended version available on the TNG Season 2 Blu-ray release.
This vessel shared its name with the USS Reliant from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
