The USS Intrepid (NCC-1631) was a Federation Constitution-class class I/class IX heavy cruiser starship in service to Starfleet in the 23rd century. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia; TOS episode: "Court Martial")

Service history

The Intrepid was one of the initial batch of Constitution-class starships that were authorized for Starfleet appropriation on stardate 0965, where she was initially assigned the registry number, NCC-1708. She was built to Mk I specifications by the Vulcans and eventually entered service on reference stardate 1/8804 (2248), with a new registry number, NCC-1631. (TOS references: Star Fleet Technical Manual, Federation Ship Recognition Manual; TOS novel: Crisis on Vulcan)

The RPG book All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook gives the ship's commissioning date as 2262.

Throughout most of her career, the Intrepid would be attached to the Vulcan Science Academy and be crewed by mainly Vulcans who had graduated from Starfleet Academy. One of her early commanding officers was Captain Spiak. (TOS novels: Crisis on Vulcan, Aftershock; ST reference: The Worlds of the Federation)

The reference book, The Worlds of the Federation, states that the Intrepid was the first vessel to encounter a Tholian vessel, but subsequent episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise seem to have disproved that claim.

The Intrepid was later refit to Mk III (Achernar-subclass) specifications and re-entered service on stardate 2/0206. (Federation Ship Recognition Manual reference: )

In 2263, the Intrepid encountered a Fabrini probe while exploring the Scorpius-Centaurus OB Association. In the same area, the Intrepid also made first contact with the Shesshran. (TOS novel: Ex Machina)

Following his admittance into Starfleet Academy in 2265, Robert Maliani performed his first "apprentice" assignment by refitting the Intrepid's computers. (TOS short story: "Night Whispers")

In 2267, the Intrepid was being repaired at Starbase 11, when the USS Enterprise was ordered ahead of the Intrepid in repair priority. (TOS episode: "Court Martial")

Even as late as 2268, the Intrepid still boasted an all-Vulcan crew, and it was in this year that she was lost while investigating the Gamma 7A system, falling victim to a gigantic space amoeba that sucked the life-force out of living beings and mechanical power sources alike. (TOS episode: "The Immunity Syndrome")

In 2370, Captain Jean-Luc Picard thought of the Intrepid as one of the names that would go down in history as infamous and would not be used. (TNG novel: Dyson Sphere) Nevertheless, the new Constitution-class USS Intrepid was built and the name has since been used on several other starships. (TOS references: Star Fleet Technical Manual, Federation Ship Recognition Manual; TNG episodes: "Sins of the Father", "Force of Nature")

The USS Intrepid (NCC-1631) was a Constitution-class heavy cruiser active in the 23rd century.

Intrepid's officers and crew were all Vulcans (TOS: "The Immunity Syndrome"); her commissioning occurred during the Vulcanian Expedition, by one account. (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)

One of the YA novels has Intrepid commissioned and manned with an all-Vulcan crew ca. 2246; the Star Trek novel: Collision Course has the idea of a Federation starship fully crewed by Vulcans contemplated in 2250.

Intrepid was in spacedock at Starbase 11 in 2267, but USS Enterprise was put ahead of her in the queue. (TOS: "Court Martial")

In 2268, Starbase 6 assigned Intrepid to investigate the loss of contact with the Gamma 7A system in Sector 39J. Intrepid encountered a dark zone that was, unbeknownst at the time, slowly killing the ship's crew.

Command division patch

On stardate 4307.1, Starbase 6 lost contact with Intrepid. Enterprise was issued a rescue priority to investigate. En route to the sector, Commander Spock telepathically sensed the Intrepid crew's deaths.

Enterprise later established that Intrepid and the Gamma 7A system had been destroyed by a cosmozoan, an incredibly huge but simple cellular being whose energies were totally destructive to all known life. The crew of the Enterprise destroyed the lifeform, which was determined to be nourishing itself for reproduction. (TOS: "The Immunity Syndrome")

Another starship Intrepid, also with an all-Vulcan crew (and the same registration number), was commissioned in the 2270s. Some design elements and systems upgrades of the Constitution-class refit had previously been tested on this Intrepid. (TOS novel: My Enemy, My Ally)

A third Constitution-class Intrepid, commanded by Luciano Mantovanni, was active from at least ca. 2298 to 2302. (Star Trek: Liberty)

Captain Jason McKnight commanded the refitted Intrepid from 2286 to approx. 2298. (Star Trek: Lexington (fan film series))
