The USS Amalthea Rex (NCC-9003) was a Federation starship, a Thomas Paine-class class IX frigate starship that was in service to Starfleet in the 24th century.

Construction of the Amalthea Rex was completed on reference stardate 2/9010, in the latter part of the 2350s decade. This vessel was commissioned at one of the two shipyards that produced Paine-class vessels, either Deneva Shipyards or Gibraltar Shipyards. (FASA RPG module: Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual)

It is possible this ship was named for the fifth moon of the planet Jupiter, Amalthea, or a location or feature of that body. While some ships of the Paine-class were named for worlds, the majority seem to be named for notable figures from history, meaning this could also be named for a character named Amalthea Rex, although no such person was described in the source material.
