The USS Potemkin (NCC-1657) was a Federation Constitution-class heavy cruiser in service to Starfleet in the 23rd century. The Potemkin had a crew complement of over 400. (TOS episode: "The Ultimate Computer", TNG novelization: Relics)

The Star Fleet Technical Manual lists the Potemkin's registry number as NCC-1711, while the FASA RPG series gives the registry as NCC-1702. However, the canon registry for the Potemkin was given in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
