History

The USS Bellerophon in orbit of Romulus.

The most notable Intrepid-class starship is the USS Voyager, which -- while attempting to capture a Maquis ship -- was dragged into the Delta Quadrant by a powerful alien. Surprisingly, the Voyager managed to complete it's 70,000 light-year journey back to Federation territory in just seven years, a feat that required the help of more powerful aliens and the exploitation of Borg transwarp technology.

The USS Bellerophon was Admiral William Ross' flagship in the 2370s.

The USS Intrepid was part of Battle Group Omega in 2379.
