In the Star Trek fictional universe, the Intrepid class is a starship class used by Starfleet and was possibly designed in the 2360s in response to the Borg threat to the Federation. The Intrepid class is a sleek variation of traditional Federation starship design with a spoon-shaped saucer section attached to the engineering section. The main bridge, lifeboats, auxillary navigational deflector, sensor platforms and dorsal phaser arrays are at the top of the saucer section. The ship's ventral phaser arrays, additional sensors, thrusters, running lights, an Aeroshuttle and additional lifeboats occupy the ventral saucer. At the bow of the engineering section is the main navigational deflector and two photon torpedo launchers. The shuttlebays, aft torpedo launchers, impulse engines occupy the stern near the warp nacelles. Intrepid class starships are one of the most advanced in the fleet, with a top cruising speed of warp 9.975, a subspace-friendly warp drive, incorporation of bioneural gel packs into the computer system and one of the first starships with the Mark One Emergency Medical Hologram system. One distinctive feature of this class is the capacity to land on a planet's surface with thrusters under blue alert conditions. In addition, the bridge of an Intrepid class starship is a self-contained module that can detach itself from the ship in an emergency and manuever with thrusters. Like most Federation starships, the Intrepid class also has a plasma-based power distribution system, a duranium hull, tricylic life support systems, and artificial gravity plating. An Intrepid class starship has 257 rooms.

In real life, the Intrepid class was designed by Star Trek: Voyager production designer Richard D. James and illustrator Rick Sternbach.
