USS Kearsarge
Owner: United Federation of Planets
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2370)

The USS Kearsarge was a 24th century Federation starship operated by Starfleet.

In 2370, this ship was forced to delay a rendezvous with the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Firstborn")

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 235) states that this vessel was a Challenger-class starship, with a registry of NCC-57566. Additionally, according to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, this ship was named for the American aircraft carrier that served as the recovery vessel for Alan Shepard's Freedom Seven Mercury spacecraft.
The name was suggested by Star Trek fan and amateur Civil War historian William F.B. Vodrey, after whom the screenwriters named the Vodrey Nebula which appeared in the same episode. (citation needededit)
The name was derived from a mountain in New Hampshire, and various United States ships have been named USS Kearsarge, including a steam sloop-of-war during the American Civil War, and the current Kearsarge, amphibious assault ship LHD-3.
