The '''''Rhode Island''-class''' was a class of [[science vessel]] in use by the [[Federation]] [[Starfleet]] in the early [[25th century]]. ({{en|VOY|Endgame}}; {{g|ST|Star Trek Online}})
The '''''Rhode Island''-class''' was a [[Federation]] [[starship]] class, a [[tier 2]] [[science vessel]] type in service in the [[25th century]]. ({{en|VOY|Endgame}}, {{STO|sub=The Klingon War|Welcome to Earth Spacedock}})
 
   
The ''Rhode Island'' was derived from the [[2370s]] {{class|Nova}} design. Due to their modular nature, components such as [[saucer]], [[hull]], [[warp nacelle|nacelle]]s and [[nacelle pylon]]s were interchangeable between the ''Rhode Island'' and its sister classes. The ship class was also in use by the [[Terran Empire]] in the [[mirror universe]]. In [[2409]], [[Federation Starfleet]] gained access to some of these counterparts through the [[Lobi Crystal Consortium]]. ({{STO|sub=The Klingon War|Welcome to Earth Spacedock}})
+
The class was also used by the [[Imperial Starfleet]] in the [[mirror universe]]. ({{g|ST|Star Trek Online}})

==Service history==
 
The ''Rhode Island''-class had entered service by the [[year]] [[2409]]. It was the first starship class equipped with a [[photonic displacer]] console, which created a [[holographic]] decoy of the vessel to mislead enemies during combat. ({{STO|sub=The Klingon War|Welcome to Earth Spacedock}})
 
 
In [[2410]] the lead ship of the class, the {{uSS|Rhode Island}}, was under the command of [[Captain]] [[Harry Kim]]. ({{STO|sub=The Delta Quadrant|{{stod|Alliances}}|{{stod|Takedown}}}})
 
 
===Alternate timeline===
 
In a [[Alternate timeline|timeline]] where {{USS|Voyager}} took 25 [[year]]s to return home, the ''Rhode Island''-class had entered service by [[2404]]. ({{en|VOY|Endgame}})
 
 
==Specifications==
 
The ''Rhode Island''-class was comparable in size to the earlier ''Nova''-class. It was armed with [[phaser array]]s and [[photon torpedo]]es and carried a [[photonic displacer]] device capable of creating a false sensor image of itself for short periods as a decoy. ({{g|ST|Star Trek Online}})
 
 
===Livery===
 
The modular design of the ''Rhode Island''-class science vessel allowed its [[commanding officer]] to choose from different designs of livery, which could be modified further at [[starbase]]s. The basic options were designated Type 1-5 and Veteran. ({{STO|sub=The Klingon War|Welcome to Earth Spacedock}})
 
 
Furthermore, the installation of [[deflector shield]]s from specific factions modified the hull appearance, including shields from the [[Reman Resistance]], the [[Breen Confederacy]] and the [[Dominion]]. ({{STO|{{stod|Coliseum}}|Cold Storage|Boldly They Rode}})

===Mirror universe===
 
The [[Terran Empire]]'s version of the ''Rhode Island''-class featured additional [[engineering]] capability at the expense of some of its utility as a science vessel.

===Background===
 
{{realworldsection}}
 
[[Larry Nemecek]] said on [[Doug Drexler]]'s [http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.drexfiles.wordpress.com/2009/05/12/rick-sternbachs-equinox/#comment-9231 blog] that he named the USS ''Rhode Island'' after the [[United States]] state of [[Rhode Island]] as a joke: Even though Harry Kim had finally gotten his own command, it was still named after the smallest US state.
