A Dedication Plaque is a metal plate found on the bridges of most Federation starships. The information on the plate has varied over the years, but most often lists the name of the ship, the registry number, the class of the ship, the ship yard of origin, and a quote from a historical figure. Some plaques also include a listing of the officers involved in the construction of the ship.

Most dedication plaques are written in English, however other languages have been used, such as the plaque of the SS Tsiolkovsky. (TNG episode The Naked Now).

Captain William T. Riker had difficulty deciding on a proper quote to use for the dedication plaque of the USS Titan (NCC-80102). (TTN novel Taking Wing).
