USS Carolina
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2267)

The USS Carolina was a Federation starship that was in service with Starfleet in the mid-23rd century.

Carolina was deployed to a sector near Capella IV in 2267, and supposedly sent a distress signal to the USS Enterprise. However, the Enterprise had previously been diverted by a fake distress call from the SS Dierdre, and acting captain Montgomery Scott, while choosing to ignore the distress class, observed, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." (TOS: "Friday's Child")

For the second and third editions of the Star Trek Encyclopedia, the Carolina was identified as an old Template:ShipClass starship with either the registry number NCC-235 on page 66 or NCC-160 in the ship list on page 417.
The novel Beneath the Raptor's Wing refers to a 22nd century Daedalus-class USS Carolina (USS Carolina (Daedalus class) (β)), while the Decipher role playing game supplements describe a 23rd century Ranger-class USS Carolina (USS Carolina (NCC-1000) (β)).
This ship might have been a Template:ShipClass heavy cruiser. In the original series, only ships like the USS Enterprise were identified as starships.
