How many ships did Starfleet have during the 22nd century? I remember and an episode where the Klingons attacked near earth and three ships came to the enterprises aid, one was the intrepid, and there was the other NX 02 that appeared later on.

  • IIRC there were only three NX vessels in use by the end of the show's run (not counting the last episode).

TL;DR - We know of between 11 and 26

There's quite a few ships I've listed here, so I'm going to break it down into categories:


These are starships we know were in Starfleet's service during the 22nd century

In canon

Beyond Canon


These ships may have been in Starfleet's service during the 22nd century, but we don't know for sure


Beyond Canon

This leaves us with 11 ships we are certain of. But there could be anywhere from 11 to 26 ships that we know of. It is quite likely Starfleet had a number more; I'm not even considering alternate timelines and the Mirror Universe. I expect that this is a gross underestimation of the number of ships Starfleet had during the 22nd century, but as I say this is just what we know of.
