The OV-165 was a Human orbital spacecraft, a United States space shuttle in NASA service in the first half of the 21st century. (ENT episode: "Broken Bow" opening credits, The Official Starships Collection Issue 128: "OV-165")

History and specificationsEdit

OV-165 was launched in the 21st century, at some point after flights of Atlantis at the onset of the century, and Zefram Cochrane's Phoenix warp-ship prototype broke the warp barrier in 2063. OV-165 operated from Earth and docked with the International Space Station. (ENT episode: "Broken Bow" opening credits, The Official Starships Collection Issue 124: "S.S. Emmette")

The vessel employed a lifting-body design. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia 4th ed.)

OV-165 was larger than the previous space shuttles, like the Atlantis. (The Official Starships Collection Issue 124: "S.S. Emmette")

By 2020, only one prototype of a space shuttle newer than the original type was in NASA service, the Renaissance. It was launched from the Cape Canaveral spaceport to service the interplanetary vessel UNSS Lewis and Clark. (TOS novel: The Rings of Time)
