The Intrepid-class was a class of starship used by the United Earth Starfleet in the mid-22nd century that saw service in the Earth-Romulan War. Later they were part of the Federation Starfleet.


The Intrepid-class was intended as a backup, in case the Warp 5 engine program had been a failure, and the NX class component needed to be re-purposed. But after Enterprise (NX-01)'s success, Starfleet saw no reason to let their work go to waste, so the class's lead ship, SS Intrepid, was commissioned by 2153 under the command of Captain Carlos Ramirez. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: A Choice of Futures; ENT episode: "The Expanse")

In 2155, during the Earth-Romulan War, Prime Minister Nathan Samuels decided to shut down production of both the Intrepid and NX-class in favor of the Daedalus-class. This change was implemented because Starfleet could only build one NX-class vessel for every two Intrepid-class vessels and every three Daedalus-class vessels, making it more efficient to build the Daedalus-class vessels. (ENT novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)

After the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation, the production on the Intrepid-class had been resumed, and the existing ships underwent refits. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: A Choice of Futures)


This class was fitted with phase cannons and torpedo launchers. (ENT episode: "The Expanse")

In the early 2160s Intrepids were refitted. The engine cores were replaced, which enabled them to reach the speed of warp 5.6 for a limited time. Other new technologies were installed as well, including deflector shields and tractor beams. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: A Choice of Futures)

This design of starship was created by the ENT season 2 visual department without any known name. The design was not described in any detail until Beneath the Raptor's Wing, when it was revealed Intrepid was the prototype of the class.
