Construction of the Intrepid began at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in the 2360s, and she was to be the first Federation starship to be equipped with bio-neural circuitry, a new development which was designed to replace isolinear chips and speed up computer response time. The Intrepid was also to be equipped with variable geometry warp nacelles, which were designed to be less harmful to space and subspace than standard warp nacelles.

In 2369, Lieutenant Junior Grade Veronica Stadi was assigned as a test pilot aboard the prototype Intrepid, where she increased piloting efficiency by 33%. While piloting Intrepid on a test run near Alpha Draconis in 2370, the starship encountered a previously uncharted quantum filament. Stadi managed to maneuver around the filament, preventing damage and destruction. (ST video game: Starship Creator)
Also in 2370, Commander Donald Kaplan, the Intrepid's chief engineer, had a friendly rivalry with Geordi La Forge, who was chief engineer of the Enterprise at the time, over whose ship had more efficient power conversion systems. (TNG episode: "Force of Nature")
By 2371, the Intrepid was under the command of Captain Terrance Riley. In this year, the Intrepid was dispatched to intercept the stolen museum ship, USS Yorktown, and persuading Captain Montgomery Scott to return home and give up his mission to attempt to rescue Ambassador Spock from the Romulans. However, after a brief discussion between Scott and Riley, Riley allowed Yorktown to continue onwards. (TNG novel: Crossover)
By mid-2376, the Intrepid was under the command of Walter Emick. During the Gateways Crisis, Emick participated in a holographic conference with many other starship and station CO's including Jean-Luc Picard, Mackenzie Calhoun, Elizabeth Shelby, and Kira Nerys. (DS9 - Gateways novel: Demons of Air and Darkness)
In 2379, the Intrepid was one of several starships that were assigned to Star Fleet Battle Group Omega and dispatched to Sector 1045 along the Romulan Neutral Zone in the hopes of stopping and destroying Praetor Shinzon and the Reman warbird Scimitar. Fortunately, the USS Enterprise-E barely managed to destroy the vessel before she breached Federation space. (TNG movie: Star Trek Nemesis)
