Commanded by Captain Elias Vaughn. Named in honor of the famous Starfleet captain. Destroyed in the defense of Federation worlds against the mass Borg Invasion of 2381, resulting in the death of 31 crew members and Captain Vaughn being left brain dead.
Commanded by Captain Rachel Garrett presumed to be Killed In Action when the ship was destroyed defending the Klingon outpost at Narendra III from Romulan attack.Helmsman Richard Castillo assumed command of the Enterprise-C in 2366 and returned to the year 2344 where the ship was destroyed defending the Klingon outpost.
Tom Paris's assignment before being dismissed from Starfleet. Participated in the Dominion War. Later commanded by Captain Elizabeth Shelby, followed by Captain Alexandra Garbeck in Star Trek: New Frontier.
The ship was ambushed by Klingons about a month after the beginning of the 2256 Federation-Klingon war and apparently destroyed. Its captain at the time was Gabriel Lorca.
At some point Lorca was replaced by his mirror-universe counterpart, who impersonated him and reported that ship was boarded, then set to self destruct by him so that its crew doesn't fall into Klingon hands and face degradation, torture and slow public death.
Named for the USS Constitution. (The TOS USS Enterprise dedication plaque refers to this ship class as the "Starship Class".)
Commanded by Commodore Matthew Decker. All of crew was killed by the Doomsday Machine except for Commodore Decker. Used as a bomb to destroy the planet-killer.
Lead ship of the class (previously NX-1700).
The ship is lost in an interdimensional rift in "The Tholian Web". Later, it is revealed she was taken by Mirror Universe Tholians, captured by the crew of the ISS Enterprise (NX-01), and then used in the service of the Terran Empire in "In a Mirror, Darkly". In Star Trek Continues (episode 8, "Still Treads the Shadow"), Defiant is duplicated during its passage through the interdimensional rift into interphasic space with only a duplicate Kirk aboard. Over the next two hundred years, it gains a sentient AI who attempts to bring it back into the prime universe. The attempt has potentially disastrous consequences and is foiled by both Kirks, the duplicate returning to interphasic space. A Defiant is mentioned, but not seen (except for a wireframe graphic) in Star Trek Discovery, Season One.
Oddly, though the Defiant appears in TOS, the Star Fleet Technical Manual lists noDefiant in any of the starship classes mentioned though the book was published seven years after the fact. However, there are several classes not listed in the publication. The Defiant is listed as a Bonhomme Richard subclass of the Constitution class. In the Star Fleet Technical Manual, it lists the registry number of "NCC-1764" as belonging to the Galina. Since the Defiant appears in an episode, and the Galina does not, then the Defiant is the sole owner of the NCC-1764. But, one possibility is, the number was attached to the Galina after the disappearance of the Defiant.
Severely damaged and crew killed during Richard Daystrom's M5 computer test. In TOS episode "The Ultimate Computer", the death of its entire crew is established, however, the status of the Excalibur itself is unclear. It is not determined whether the ship was destroyed or severely damaged. The Star Trek Chronology (2nd ed., p. 88) stated that the ship was destroyed. The fourth edition of the Star Trek Encyclopedia offered two possibilities of the conditions of the Excalibur – the ship was severely damaged in (vol. 1, p. 254) or accidentally destroyed in (vol. 2, p. 329). Even though the episode itself provided no firm confirmation either way. The 1973 Franz Joseph Blueprints list this ship as NCC-1705.
All crew lost (killed by alien disease) except for Captain Ronald Tracey, who was on the planet's surface when the disease struck his crew. At the end of the series Captain James T. Kirk stated that the Exeter was an abandoned ship, being infected with the virus of Omega IV. Best estimates were that the Exeter was destroyed to keep the infection from spreading throughout the galaxy. See USS Kongo for its ultimate fate. The 1973 Franz Joseph Blueprints list this ship as NCC-1706.
Participates in Richard Daystrom's M5 computer test. Destroyed by sabotage in Star Trek Continues episode 7, "Embracing the Winds". In episodes 10–11 "To Boldly Go", we find out this was done by espers. The 1973 Franz Joseph Blueprints list this ship as NCC-1707.
All-Vulcan crew destroyed by a massive, spacegoing single-celled life form. The 1973 Franz Joseph Blueprints list this ship as NCC-1708.
In Star Trek Continues episodes 10–11 "To Boldly Go", the Kongo is hijacked by espers and taken to the galactic barrier. They then head for Earth with murderous intent. With the help of Romulan commander Charvanek and her Hawk's Talon, the Enterprise foils them, but not before they trick the Exeter and Potemkin into destroying each other. In their last act of defiance, the espers destroy the Kongo.
Participates in Richard Daystrom's M5 computer test. See USS Kongo for its ultimate fate. The 1973 Franz Joseph Blueprints list this ship as NCC-1711.
Although many reference sources included Republic as a Constitution-class heavy cruiser, its status in canon is, to date, uncertain. Kirk himself stated in the episode "Court Martial" the ship's nomenclature as "United Starship Republic, number 1371".
For his influential "The Case of Jonathan Doe Starship" article, published in the April 1973 issue 27 of the T-Negative fanzine, future Star Trek model maker Greg Jein accepted the producer's intent and endowed Valiant with the appropriately lower conjectural registry number NCC-1623. But unlike many of his other conjectural Constitution-class registry numbers, the 2006 remastered version of the series afforded no opportunity to bring this ship to canon. The reference book Star Fleet Technical Manual also listed a Constitution-class starship with the name Valiant but assigned with the registry NCC-1709. The 1973 Franz Joseph Blueprints list this ship as NCC-1709 also.
Disabled by alien probe. The 1973 Franz Joseph Blueprints list this ship as NCC-1704.
Seen investigating the results of the Tabula Rasa Incident in the opening sequence of the video game Star Trek: New Worlds. Commanded by Captain Gibson.
The refit Kongo NCC-1710 was put into active service just after the V'Ger crisis of 2268. According to the unseen page 4 of the "Operation Retrieve" briefing charts, 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. The 2nd Kongo to bear the name was not put in to service until 2373, and the hull number of NCC-1710 was added the letter (A) to the Sovereign starship.
