The Trosper was one of the first three starships to arrive at Veridian III following the crash of the USS Enterprise-D in 2371. It was their crew that discovered the visual signal being broadcast by a microtransmitter from Geordi La Forge's VISOR, which had been used by Lursa and B'Etor to penetrate the Enterprise's shields.

The Trosper was named in honor of Jennifer Trosper, mission manager for the Spirit rover of the early-21st century Mars Exploration Rover mission.
