The USS Bradbury (NX-72307) was a 24th century Federation Bradbury-class starship.

In 2366, this transport ferried Starfleet Academy students from Betazed to Earth. Ensign Wesley Crusher of the starship USS Enterprise was scheduled to be transported by the Bradbury to the Academy to begin his classes. Because of an emergency aboard the Enterprise, the Bradbury was forced to leave him behind to keep its schedule. (TNG: "Ménage à Troi")

In 2367, the Bradbury was undergoing warp drive performance tests. The ship was named on the chart Starfleet Operations-Sectors 21166-23079 in the USS Enterprise-D bridge. (TNG: "Brothers" okudagram)

In 2369, the Bradbury was undergoing warp drive performance tests. The ship was named on the chart Starfleet Operations-Sectors 21538-23079 in the Enterprise-D observation lounge. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I", okudagram)

The class and registry were derived from the chart in "Brothers"
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, (3rd ed. p. 53) the Bradbury was named for s-f/fantasy writer, Ray Bradbury, a friend of the late Gene Roddenberry. In a commentary note, Michael Okuda suspected that the ship was the prototype vessel of the Bradbury-class.
