Background information Edit
The Bradbury-class designation was only seen on the starship mission status background artwork in the observation lounge that first appeared in TNG Season 4. According to Star Trek Encyclopedia, the Bradbury was named in honor of science fiction author Ray Bradbury.
A ship description was mentioned in the supplements to the Last Unicorn Games role-playing games, which refer to this vessel as being a 335-meter-long heavy frigate in service from 2362, with ten decks, and describes it as being similar to the unfilmed Intrepid-class prototype designed during pre-production of Star Trek: Voyager.
