For the 24th century starship, please see USS Ahwahnee (NCC-71620).

The USS Ahwahnee (NCC-2048) was a 23rd century Federation Constitution-class starship operated by Starfleet.

In 2293, the Ahwahnee was assigned a deep space exploration mission. The ship was named on a Starship Mission Assignments chart on the USS Enterprise-A bridge.

Later that year, the Ahwahnee was named as one of the ships on station in Sectors 21166-8 in the "Operation Retrieve" command briefing. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

The name, class, and registry were from the plans for Operation Retrieve and a starship mission status chart on the USS Enterprise-A bridge in 2293.
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 470) stated that the USS Ahwahnee (NCC-71620) was named for a Native American tribe.
According to a ship list included as a fourth page in the plans, but not seen in the extended cut of the movie, D. Tathwell was the commanding officer of the Ahwahnee, which was located in Sector 21835. [1] Tathwell was the maiden name of Scenic Artist Denise Okuda, before her marriage with Michael Okuda, the creator of the Operation Retrieve mission charts.
