USS Bradbury
Class: Template:ShipClass
Registry: NX-72307
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2367)

The USS Bradbury (NX-72307) was a Federation Template:ShipClass transport that was in service with Starfleet in the mid-24th century. Bradbury was the prototype for her class of starship.

In 2366, Bradbury ferried Starfleet Academy students from Betazed to Earth. Ensign Wesley Crusher of the starship USS Enterprise-D was scheduled to be transported by the Bradbury to the Academy to begin his classes. Because of an emergency aboard Enterprise-D, the Bradbury was forced to leave him behind to keep its schedule. (TNG: "Ménage à Troi")

In status displays received by Enterprise-D around 2367, Bradbury was continuing her warp drive performance tests. (TNG: "Brothers")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, "the Bradbury was named for s-f/fantasy writer, Ray Bradbury, a friend of the late Gene Roddenberry. Based on the registry number, we suspect it is an experimental vessel, the first of its class."
The Bradbury was only initially mentioned in the dialog of "Ménage à Troi", but would later be referenced by name, class and registry number on the Starship mission status background artwork on the observation lounge set from TNG Season 4 onward.
