U.S.S. Eagle NCC-956
(NCC-1738)
(NCC-1719)



The USS Eagle (NCC-956) was a Federation starship that was in service to Starfleet in the latter half of the 23rd century.
The Eagle, along with the USS Excelsior and the USS Potemkin, was selected for the primary operational phase of the abandoned assault code-named Operation Retrieve, which would have rescued Captain James Kirk and Doctor Leonard McCoy from Rura Penthe in 2293. According to the plans, the Eagle was to provide protection on the Potemkin's port flank as this ship retrieved the two Starfleet officers.
At the time of the operation's proposal, the Eagle was conducting a colony re-supply mission in Sector 22858.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
This starship and registry were not referenced in dialog. This vessel appeared in the plans for Operation Retrieve presented by Colonel West. Save for the USS Excelsior, the Eagle and five other starships were graphically represented by the outline of a movie era refit Constitution-class vessel.
From this, the Star Trek Encyclopedia lists the ship as a Constitution-class vessel.
An unseen element from the Operation Retrieve charts includes a list of starships, their registries and their commanders. According to this list, the Eagle was commanded by K. Garretson.

U.S.S. Endeavour NCC-1895
(NCC-1777)
(NCC-1716)


List in Star Trek Encyclopedia II
The USS Endeavour (NCC-1895) was a Federation starship that was in service to Starfleet in the latter half of the 23rd century.
The Endeavour was on a deep space exploration mission near Klingon territory in 2293. This ship, along with the USS Ahwahnee and the USS Emden, was selected as additional support for Operation Retrieve, which would have rescued Captain James Kirk and Doctor Leonard McCoy from Rura Penthe.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
This starship and its registry were not referenced in dialog. This vessel appeared in the plans for Operation Retrieve presented by Colonel West. Save for the USS Excelsior, the Endeavour and five other starships were graphically represented by the outline of a movie era refit Constitution-class vessel.
From this, the Star Trek Encyclopedia lists the ship as a Constitution-class vessel.
The Endeavour was probably named for the HMS Endeavour, specifically, the HMS Bark Endeavour commanded by Lieutenant James Cook in his voyage of exploration in the Pacific from 1768-1771, and the NASA space shuttle Endeavour.
According to a ship listing included in the plans, and not seen in the extended cut of the movie, the Endeavour was commanded by D. Wise, and the ship was located in Sector 22849.
The ship's captain was named after the sixth movie's first assistant director Douglas E. Wise.

U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701



The original Starship Enterprise was refitted several times during its lifetime, most notably in 2270, when virtually every major system was upgraded, a new bridge module was installed, and the warp-drive nacelles were replaced.
Star Trek: The Motion Picture
The ship was destroyed by James Kirk in 2285, just prior to its scheduled retirement, in order to prevent the ship from falling into Klingon hands during a rescue mission to recover the body of Captain Spock.
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
The motion picture version was designed by Mike Minor, Joe Jennings, Andrew Probert, Douglas Trumbull, and Harald Michelson.
U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-A U.S.S. Enterprise A Dedication Plaques




The second Federation starship to bear the name. Launched in 2286, the Enterprise-A was placed under the command of Captain James T. Kirk by the Federation Council and Starfleet Command in appreciation for Kirk's role in saving planet Earth from the destructive effects of an alien space probe.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Altough shakedown tests and systems installation under the aegis of Captain Montgomery Scott had not been completed, the Enterprise-A was rushed into service in early 2287 to intervene ia a hostage situation at planet Nimbus III.
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
The ship, under the reluctant command of Captain Kirk, was pressed back into service to escort Klingon Chancellor Gorkon to Earth for a peace conference. Although the scheduled talks were canceled after the assassination of Gorkon, the Enterprise-A and her crew were instrumental in the success of the historic Khitomer peace conference shortly thereafter. The Enterprise-A was scheduled to be decommissioned a shortly after the Khitomer conference.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
The Enterprise-A's exterior was virtually identical to the upgraded original Enterprise first seen in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, although many of the interiors were redesigned for Star Trek V and VI.
In the book Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise of 1987 by Shane Johnson is written that the U.S.S. Ti-Ho NCC-1798 was re-christened "Enterprise" and her hull registry was changed to NCC-1701-A.
U.S.S. Intrepid NCC-1707
This ship was identified by a Constitution-class icon in two display panels created for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Two unnamed Constitution-class ships are seen stationed at the Spacedock at the end of the film. We assume this ship is one of them. The panels are not clearly visible on screen in any scene of the final release. These two panels show NX-2000 and the NCC-1707 departure routes from the Spacedock. One of the panels abbreviate the registries to NX-200 and NC-177. It is possible these graphics were created to correspond with dialog from a deleted scene found in the shooting script for the two dock controllers: "Excelsior and Intrepid are cleared to depart. Open spacedock doors" followed by the failure of both ships to power up and the doors to open, due to influence by the Whale Probe.
The panels in question were sold at It's A Wrap! sale and auction.
Star Fleet Technical Manual states the registry NCC-1707 belongs to USS Hood. This would contradict the registry NCC-1703 given for that ship in the 2008 remastered version of "The Ultimate Computer".
According to the FASA published Federation Ship Recognition Manual, page 11, the new refit USS Intrepid had the registry NCC-1707.

U.S.S. Kongo NCC-1710

Commanded by Commodore Dan Stack; successfully observed the primitive civilization on Muldoon IV, located between the twin suns of Loki and Thor (2269).
DECIPHER Star Trek Roleplaying Game Starships Book
The USS Kongo (NCC-1710) was a Federation starship in service during the late 23rd century.
In 2293, the Kongo assigned to patrol the Neutral Zone during the time Operation Retrieve was proposed.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
The Kongo and registry is not from dialog, it was seen only on background artwork.
Although not considered as canon, Franz Joseph's Star Fleet Technical Manual lists the Kongo - with the NCC-1710 registry - as a Constitution-class starship. However, it is likely that - as in the case with Star Trek I - the Technical Manual was used for the references in it.
The Making of Star Trek, by Stephen E. Whitfield and Gene Roddenberry, lists the Kongo as one of the fourteen established names for starships. Along with the Constitution, it is the only one of these ships that is neither seen nor named in the course of the series.
According to a ship listing included in the plans, and not seen in the extended cut of the movie, the Kongo was commanded by N. Rodis, and the ship was located in Sector 21803. The ship's captain was named after the sixth movie's art director Nilo Rodis-Jamero.

U.S.S. Olympia NCC-1657
(NCC-1702)
(NCC-1711)

The Olympia, commanded by Captain Lisa Cusak, conducted an eight-year mission of deep space exploration in the Beta Quadrant from 2363 through 2371. En route back to Federation space, the ship investigated a planet in the Rutharian sector. The Olympia was crippled when its active sensor scans triggered a powerful quantum reaction in an exogenic energy field surrounding the planet, causing a surge of metreon radiation. The ship subsequently exploded with theeventual loss of all hands.
Named for the region in western Peloponnesus on Earth that was the site of the ancient Olympic games.
DS9 "The Sound of Her Voice" ; Star Trek Encyclopedia III
According to Doug Drexler, Gary Hutzel said Greg Jein built the Olympia by reusing the model of the USS Enterprise wreckage from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. This suggests it was a type of (refit) Constitution-class, possibly with saucer separation capabilities.
Episode teleplay writer Ronald D. Moore named the Olympia for the United States Navy cruiser USS Olympia.

U.S.S. Potemkin  


The Potemkin was one of five ships that participated in the disatrous test of the M-5 multitronic unit in 2268.
TOS "The Ultimate Computer"
The Potemkin was to rendezvous with the Enterprise at Beta Aurigae shortly after stardate 5928 to study gravitational influences in that binary system, until Dr. Janice Lester, in Kirk's body, changed the course.
TOS "Turnabout Intruder"
Star Trek Encyclopedia II

In 2293 the Potemkin was conducting a scientific survey near Klingon territory during the time Operation Retrieve was proposed. It was among the starships that would have been assembled for the proposed assault that would have rescued Captain James Kirk and Doctor Leonard McCoy from Rura Penthe. According to the plans, the Potemkin would have retrieved the two Starfleet officers while having her port and starboard flanks covered by the USS Eagle and the USS Excelsior, respectively.

U.S.S. Republic NCC-1371
(NCC-1373)

James Kirk and Ben Finney served together on the Republic araund 2250. Ensign Kirk once found Finney had left a circuit to the atomic matter piles open. Kirk logged the error, and Finney was sent to the bottom of the promotion list.
TOS "Court Martial"
After serving for decades in Starfleet, the Starship Republic became a cadet-tarining vessel, rarely venturing out of Earth's Sol system.
DS9 "Valiant"
The episode does not make it clear if this was the same ship that Kirk served on as a cadet, but episode writer Ronald D. Moore indicated he thought it probably was.
Star Trek Encyclopedia II
FASA gives the registry as NCC-1373
In 2293, the Republic was assigned to Neutral Zone patrol during the time Operation Retrieve was proposed.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
U.S.S. Yorktown NCC-1717
(NCC-1704)





The Yorktown was disabled by an alien space probe approaching Earth in 2286. The ship's chief engineer rigged a makeshift solar sail to provide emergency power.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Roddenberry repordl suggested that the second Starship Enterprise, NCC-1701-A, launched at the end of Star Trek IV, had previously been named the Yorktown, since it seems unlikely that Starfleet could have built an all-new ship so quickly. If this was the case, the Yorktown may have made it safely back to Earth and been repaired and reanamed, or perhaps there was a newer, replacement Yorktown alredy under construction at the time of the probe crisis.
