Robot grain ships.jpg


Class: Antares-type
Registry: NCC-G1465
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Both ships disabled (2269)

NCC-G1465 was the registry number for two Federation Antares-type freighters that were in service with Starfleet in the mid-23rd century. These ships were fully automated and carried no crew.

In 2269, these two ships were assigned to the command of USS Enterprise for a quintotriticale run to Sherman's Planet. They were operated by remote-control.

During an encounter with the IKS Gr'oth under the command of Captain Koloth, one of the ships was disabled, and its cargo was transferred to the Enterprise. The Gr'oth later returned and attacked the second ship, disabling its propulsion systems as well. The ship was later recovered and towed by the Enterprise to Sherman's Planet. (TAS: "More Tribbles, More Troubles")

This appearance of the two robot grain ships was the first on-screen appearance of this ship class. The cargo drone ships were clearly intentionally labeled with the same NCC-G registry in the 1973 episode. It was not until later, when a cgi-model was created to represent independent starships in the remastered Star Trek in 2007, that ships of this class appeared with separate NCC registries.
In the Star Trek: Ships of the Line (2008) calendar, Daren Dochterman created an illustration, which he named "The Animateds", that was for the month of July. This illustration was based on the battle seen in "More Tribbles, More Troubles". The second ship was given the registry NCC-G1478.
