The USS Lafayette (NCC-91200) was a 25th century Federation escort starship, the Lafayette-class recon destroyer prototype in Starfleet service in the early 2410s decade. (STO - Victory Is Life mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")


Following the ravages of the Iconian War in 2410, the Khitomer Alliance tasked the Advanced Starship Design Bureau to replace the spacecraft losses suffered by Alliance fleets. (STO Issue 05: "U.S.S. Buran NCC-96400")

Starfleet and the Klingon Defense Force cooperated in the development of new tier 6 destroyers based on the New Orleans-class frigate of the 24th century and the Klingon raptor escorts of the 25th century. The Lafayette represented the Federation's Lafayette class. Its KDF counterpart was the Ketha-class recon raptor IKS Ketha. Along with the retrofitted New Orleans class, the recon destroyers were the first ships equipped with the hyper-focusing trinary array. (STO website: Announcing the Recon Destroyer Bundle!)

The hull of the Lafayette consisted of Andromeda-class components in a New Orleans-class configuration. The exploration cruiser USS Andromeda had been launched in 2409 and proven successful. (STO Issue 03: "U.S.S. Andromeda NCC-92100", STO website: Announcing the Recon Destroyer Bundle!)

The USS Lafayette could be deployed by the admiralty for assignments with other ships. (STO mission: "New Dawn" game mechanic: "Admiralty System")

In Starfleet Shipyard Operations shipyard interfaces, the Lafayette visually represented its class from 2410 onwards. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock")
