Registry: USS Enterprise / NCC 1701 C
First Seen On: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Andrew Probert’s Enterprise-C was designed for The Next Generation episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise,” in which Picard’s ship comes into contact with its predecessor, which has somehow traveled over 20 years into the future — this is Star Trek.
The design positions it somewhere between the earlier ships and the D-version. Possessing the elegance of Picard’s near luxury-liner, and the rounded saucer of Kirk’s ship, it’s loathed by some and loved by others. While this one-off may provoke spirited debates, it would become the basis for the Ambassador class of Trek cruiser — its sister ships would show up not only throughout The Next Generation but also in Deep Space Nine.
