(as ship's commander and location are soft canon, I have created a background note for both sources of information; ref possible homage)

The USS Springfield (NCC-1963) was a Federation starship in service during the late 23rd century.

In 2293, the Springfield was assigned for a patrol mission along the Neutral Zone during the time that Operation Retrieve was proposed. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

According to a ship listing included in the plans, and not seen in the extended cut of the movie, the Springfield was commanded by D. Bayard, and the ship was located in Sector 21835. The ship's captain may have been named after the sixth's movie art department construction coordinator Richard J. Bayard.

Background

This ship is not related to the Template:ShipClass of starships, which were in service during the 2360s.

While not an official source, Decipher roleplaying game supplements state that this vessel may be a Ranger-class starship.

Springfield is said to be the most common town name in the United States of America, with 37 cities by that name (and many more with variations of that name, such as "Springfield Crossing" or "Springfield Plantation") in over 30 states. It is possible that one of these cities is the origin of this ship's name.
