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 voiced strong views to Picard about snap inspections and the admirals who pulled them. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man")

In 2364, Captain Picard earned a Service Award for his time aboard the Reliant. This award was stored in Picard's section of the quantum archive at the Starfleet Archive Museum. (PIC: "Remembrance")

Picard sometimes served night watch aboard the vessel. (PIC: "Broken Pieces")


Background information

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.

The service award was one of the props displayed at Comic Con's exhibit Jean-Luc Picard: The First Duty in the summer of 2019. [1] According to signs at the exhibit, Picard served aboard this ship from 2327 to 2330 and helped with its decommissioning as he waited for the completion of the USS Enterprise-D in 2364.
