The Merced-class starship was a type of vessel in service with Starfleet during the 24th century. (TNG: "Brothers")

In 2364, Data described the class, specifically the USS Trieste as "too small" and "too slow" to intercept a Galaxy-class starship. (TNG: "11001001")

Background information

The name of this class was originally derived from an okudagram described as a Starship mission status that was displayed in the observation lounge starting around TNG Season 4 and was originally described in the Star Trek Encyclopedia. While the true origins of this class name are unclear, it is possible that it was named one of the several Merced-related references (river, county, city) found in Northern California, which is currently known for its proximity to Yosemite National Park.

During one of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine kitbash rounds, a model of the Merced-class was constructed. Several polaroids, provided by Dan Curry to the Flare Sci-Fi Forums, were taken of the ship. The model however did not appear in any episode. [1]
