HMS New Zealand was a Terran DY-732 [N]-class starship that was in service in the early 22nd century. New Zealand was under the command of Captain Bob Lederman.

In 2135, the New Zealand was launched from Earth on a diplomatic mission to Aldebaran.

This vessel was among the list of ships that appeared on Captain Jean-Luc Picard's desktop monitor while he searched for "all Earth deep-space launches from 2123 until 2190 with destination in or near the Ficus sector" during an investigation of an SOS signal discovered in that sector in 2365. This vessel, however, did not fall within the parameters of his search, but was among the ships launched in that time frame. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder")

Background information

The name of this ship appeared on an okudagram on Picard's desk monitor, and was not verbally referenced in dialog. A legible version of the original okudagram would appear in the reference book, Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Continuing Mission. For the remastered version of the graphic, the destination of the mission was altered from Alderaan to Aldebaran.

Named after several British capital ships called HMS New Zealand, themselves named after the islands of New Zealand.
