Background information

Daedalus class USS Horizon

The study model

A study model was eventually built for the original Star Trek Chronology by Greg Jein and later put on a stand with a TNG-era communicator to be put in Sisko's office, where it can be seen in the background in numerous episodes, along with a model of the International Space Station, the Miranda-class USS Saratoga, and the Nebula-class USS Melbourne.

It was also featured prominently in an article on the history of Federation starships in Star Trek: The Magazine, where it was featured as a CGI in Volume 3, Issue 9.

According to the reference books Star Trek Concordance, the Star Trek Encyclopedia, Star Trek Maps and The Worlds of the Federation and the current article, this vessel was the starship that visited the planet Sigma Iotia II in 2168, as mentioned in TOS: "A Piece of the Action". In the episode, it was stated that the Horizon came "from the same outfit as" the USS Enterprise, but it was never specified if that "outfit" was Starfleet or the Federation, nor was the prefix USS ever stated.


In the novel Starfleet: Year One, Captain Alonis Cobaryn was mentioned as taking command of the Horizon in 2167. It was also mentioned in the Strange New Worlds VII short story "Test of Character."
