USS Trial

Class: Miranda-class
Registry: NCC-1948
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2374)

The USS Trial (NCC-1948) was a 23rd century Federation Miranda-class starship operated by Starfleet.

In early 2372, the Trial, accompanied by the USS Venture and two unnamed Excelsior class starship, were part of Admiral Hastur's task force that relieved Deep Space 9 following the first Battle of Deep Space 9. The ship later docked at the station after the Klingon withdrawal. (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")

All subsequent appearances of this vessel were as a result of recycled footage.

It would return to visit Deep Space 9 again in 2373. (DS9: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume")

The Trial later fought in the Dominion War, and would take part in Benjamin Sisko's fleet assigned to retake Deep Space 9. It was one of the first starships to arrive at the station after the Dominion withdrawal. (DS9: "Sacrifice of Angels")

The Trial was built from an AMT/Ertl model kit of the USS Reliant. The origin of the name is a result of the rearrangement of the letters R-E-L-I-A-N-T to get T-R-I-A-L (minus the E-N). The registry was also conceived the same way, rearranging 1-8-6-4 to get 1-9-4-8 (turning the 6 upside down, making it a 9). A similar method was used in naming and registering of the USS Yeager (NCC-65674), created from USS Voyager (NCC-74656) and the registry of the USS Constellation (NCC-1017) from the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701).
