Template:ShipClass 
Type of Federation starship. In a commonly made mistake, Picard states in dialog instead that the Tubman was a Constitution class vessel. He even goes so far to claim it is not unlike the original USS Enterprise, even though numerous dissimilarities are visible in the designs. Possibly the vessel had been converted since Picard last knew it, the cover and interior artwork show it to be a Constellation.

USS Odyser (NCC-11001-A)
