The USS Bozeman (NCC-1941-A) (also referred to as the USS Bozeman II) was a Federation Sovereign-class starship in the late 24th century, entering Starfleet service in 2372. Originally designated USS Roderick, the Bozeman was so renamed in honor of Captain Morgan Bateson and the crew of the recently decommissioned original USS Bozeman, a temporally displaced 23rd century vessel. In turn, both vessels were originally named for Bozeman, Montana on Earth, the site of first contact between Humans and Vulcans.
It was constructed at Starbase 12, with completion coming shortly after the work on the USS Enterprise-E had been completed. Its construction crew was the same as that of the Enterprise-E, which was Bateson and the crew of the original Bozeman. Captain Montgomery Scott also assisted with the vessel's final stages of construction.
The Bozeman II underwent a trial of fire soon after entering service when, under Bateson's command, she was one of a number of vessels that faced the Borg at the Battle of Sector 001 in 2373. (TNG movie: Star Trek: First Contact; TNG novel: Ship of the Line; SCE eBook: The Future Begins)
- In Ship of the Line, the Bozeman-A was referred to as a destroyer, but no starship class was given. However, The Future Begins, identifies her as being Sovereign-class vessel and a sister ship to the Enterprise-E.
