The Sherlock Holmes on a mission order

The Sherlock Holmes on a mission order
Registry: NCC-221B
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2364)

The USS Sherlock Holmes (NCC-221B) was a Federation starship operated by Starfleet. This starship was on active duty in the 24th century.

In 2364, the commanding officer was Captain Jeffery Joal Annon. In 2364, prior to stardate 41603.7, this ship, along with the USS Unicorn, received an order from Admiral Gregory Quinn of Starfleet Operational Support Services. Later that year, this order was read by Lieutenant Commander Data during an investigation into an alleged conspiracy in the highest levels of Starfleet Command. (TNG: "Conspiracy", okudagram)

The ship might have been named after the famed fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes. The registry was an in-joke as it was the house number of Holmes' residence on 221B Baker Street.
The star chart seen on this mission order could be seen on the mission order for the USS Endeavour. This chart was first seen in "Heart of Glory" aboard the Talarian freighter Batris. It would be seen again in "Symbiosis" aboard the Ornaran freighter Sanction.
On several display graphics displaying the registry of the USS Enterprise-D, the second slash was omitted, with the registry written as NCC-1701D. If this was the case with the Sherlock Holmes, that would presumably make this the third starship to bear the name.
