There is the S.S. Beagle. A small class-IV stardrive survey vessel that had a crew of 47, which was either a Intrepid type, a Neptune class or Oberth.
Umm, why? It sounds a bit silly that Starfleet would be donating pre-2150s types for civilian use when civilians at that time could surely afford better. And the Beagle
being an Oberth
is at most a possibility - but what we know for sure is that she wasn't a Starfleet vessel, and all the Oberths
we have ever seen have had Starfleet pennants on them.
Sure, there's the Vico
, which some people want to treat as a civilian ship. But I don't really see why. She's got the pennants, she's got (dead) people in uniforms, she was "sent" to study the Black Cluster and subsequently lost contact with a Starfleet starbase...
Is the "civilian" identity of this ship based on there being a kid aboard? Doesn't work too well in the case of the E-D herself! Is it the NAR registry? Kirk's ride in ST6 had such a registry as well.
is probably a never seen type. You know, the more, the merrier?
Then there's the Soyuz class.
Yup. What about it?
