A class-1 probe

A class-1 probe or more specifically class I sensor probe was a type of probe used by the Federation Starfleet in the 24th century.


In the year 2367 of an alternate timeline, Captain William T. Riker of the USS Enterprise-D ordered the use of a series of six class-1 probes to scout conditions inside the Spindrift Nebula after a rogue planet had appeared and then disappeared inside it. (TNG novel: Headlong Flight)

Their sensors included full EM-subspace and interstellar chemical palette for use in space.
