The NV-type was a class of United Earth starship in Starfleet service during the mid-22nd century.
The NV-class was a twenty-second century Earth Starfleet design developed as a solar explorer, survey vessel, and patrol vessel. Launched in 2141, the NV featured a tapered 'half saucer' attached to a compact engineering hull assembly. The ship's warp nacelles had distinctive fins sticking outward from their rear sections which improved the efficiency of the ship's warp field. It continued to serve throughout the mid twenty-second century before eventually being superseded by the warp five NX-class design.
The NV-class Intrepid was the lead ship of the Earth Defense Fleet in the early 2150s. In 2153, the Intrepid, under the command of Captain Carlos Ramierez, aided the returning Enterprise NX-01 on its way back to Earth when the latter was attacked by a Klingon Bird-of-Prey.
