The USS Thomas Paine (NCC-9000) was a Federation starship, the prototype Thomas Paine-class class IX frigate starship that was in service to Starfleet in the 24th century. This ship was named for Thomas Paine, a Human patriot from the history of Earth's United States of America nation. This vessel was succeeded in its name by a later ship, the New Orleans-class USS Thomas Paine.

Construction of the Thomas Paine was completed on reference stardate 2/9002, in 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)

Before the Star Trek Encyclopedia clarified the class of the USS Thomas Paine referred to in TNG episode: "Conspiracy", FASA had apparently intended to assign that ship as the Paine-class prototype vessel. This contradiction can be reconciled using dates that establish the newer New Orleans-class ship had succeeded that other vessel and assumed its name.
