USS Endeavour
Registry: NCC-1895
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2293)

The USS Endeavour (NCC-1895) was a Federation starship that was in service with Starfleet in the late 23rd century.

The Endeavour was on a deep space exploration mission near Klingon territory in 2293. This ship, along with the USS Ahwahnee and the USS Emden, was selected as additional support for Operation Retrieve, which would have rescued Captain James Kirk and Doctor Leonard McCoy from Rura Penthe. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

Appendices

Background information

This starship and its registry were not referenced in dialog. This vessel appeared in the plans for Operation Retrieve presented by Colonel West. Save for the USS Excelsior, the Endeavour and five other starships were graphically represented by the silhouette of a movie era refit Constitution-class vessel.

From this, the Star Trek Encyclopedia listed the ship as a Constitution-class vessel.

The Endeavour was probably named for the HMS Endeavour, specifically, the HM Bark Endeavour commanded by Lieutenant James Cook in his voyage of exploration in the Pacific from 1768–1771, and the NASA space shuttle Endeavour.

According to a ship listing included in the plans, and not seen in the extended cut of the movie, the Endeavour was commanded by D. Wise, and the ship was located in Sector 22849. [1]

The ship's captain was named after the sixth movie's first assistant director Douglas E. Wise. [2]

Apocrypha

The Star Fleet Technical Manual included a Constitution-class Endeavour, with a registry of NCC-1716, in service in the mid-23rd century.

The Pocket TOS Errand of Vengeance novel Killing Blow features a USS Endeavor engaging Klingon forces at the Battle of Donatu V in 2245. This Endeavor was referred to as an Icarus-class (β) starship in Errand of Fury: Seeds of Rage.
