Flagship is a term applied to the lead ship in a grouping, the ship which commands the fleet. The title is typically bestowed on the best equipped, newest, or best known ship in the fleet. Throughout the history of the United Federation of Planets the starships Enterprise were typically considered the Starfleet flagship. (TNG episode: "The Icarus Factor"; TOS movie: Star Trek; et al.)

In the Kelvin timeline, flagship was used as a starship classification; Starfleet's Constitution-class was classified a flagship, as was the Romulan Star Empire's Centurion-class. (TOS video game: D-A-C)
